Something a bit different from JORD Wood Watches

Something a bit different from me today, I’m reviewing this beautiful wooden watch from JORD Wood Watches. JORD is Swedish for ‘earth, soil, land’ and their products take inspiration from the natural elements, utilising sustainable materials from all around the world.
I’ve been trying out the Ely* model in Natural Green & Maple, it also comes in three other wood finishes – Maple, Black or Cherry. I prefer the Natural Green & Maple though as you can see the intricate details of the wood grain best on this one.
I have quite a small wrist so I chose the Ely model as it’s one of the smallest watches offered by JORD, but if you want something similar but bigger there is also the Fieldcrest model. The watch fits my wrist perfectly as JORD offer a wrist-sizing service and size each watch individually to fit the owner, you just let them know the circumference of your wrist when ordering.
JORD’s packaging is really special and continues the wood theme to another level. My Ely watch came nestled inside a pale wooden box with sliding lid, snugly wrapped around a tweed cushion. A really nice touch!
The image above shows the branded cushion in closer detail, I’ve been keeping my Ely wood watch on the cushion at night when I’ve not been wearing it. I suspect you would need to look after your wooden watch very carefully, wood is a soft natural material and could easily mark or scratch, so probably best not to wear it when doing sports or DIY.
The Ely watch features a regular dial and a date display, it’s also splash-proof. The strap fastens and unfastens easily using a push button system that is hidden underneath the wooden strap.
The Ely is one of the more simple designs offered by JORD, if you’re looking for something a bit different then you might want to try looking at the Delmar watch with its square face, or the Cora Series which shows the movement inside and has crystals on the face.
I love my JORD wood watch as it’s so unique, I’ve never seen anything similar in the shops and I’ve been getting lots of great comments on it from friends and family. It also has a divine ‘woody’ smell!
These wooden watches would make great gifts, particularly for a man – many of the designs are unisex and would suit both men and women. It’s worth bearing them in mind for next year’s Father’s Day, or Christmas.
JORD Wood Watches start from $120 (around £78 as at July 2015).
My Ely watch in Natural Green & Maple is priced at $129 (around £83 as at July 2015) and is available from JORD Wood Watches.
