And guys, I think I have finally found the perfect watch for me.
|*I was provided this timepiece for the purpose of this review, all opinions are my own.|
Let me introduce you to the JORD Wooden Wristwatch! Yes, WOODEN WATCHES. Honestly, I've never seen any other watches like this one before. I always just assumed I would end up getting your typical stainless steel style watch. But I'm super glad I hesitated and waited so long, because this little baby was exactly what I didn't realize I wanted. ;-)
JORD makes modern handcrafted wood watches, for both men and women. I really liked what I saw online, but I was extremely interested to see what it wood actually look and feel like once it was on my wrist. Truth? I was pleasantly surprised with how lightweight and comfortable it was.
And It seemed quite appropriate that my wooden wristwatch arrived in a perfectly adorable wooden box. I feel like the presentation actually makes quite a difference in regards to my first impression of things. So I was stoked to see how lovely this timepiece looked both in & out of the box.
JORD offers a variety of watches, made from all different wood materials from sources around the world -- such as Rosewood, Sandalwood, Maple, Bamboo, Ebony... etc.
The watch I chose is from the Fieldcrest series, made of Zebrawood & Maple. I specifically chose this material because of the neutral color, and how versatile it is, I really can wear it with anything. I was a little bit surprised with how large the face of the watch was, though. I think I was just expecting it to be a little bit smaller. Although, truth be told, most watches are huge on me because I have pretty small wrists. However, after wearing the watch for a few days, the size of it actually grew on me quite a bit. And I certainly enjoy not having to squint to see what time it is. ;-)
The Fieldcrest timepieces are made with scratch-resistant mineral glass, and is considered to be "splash-proof," but should not be submerged in water. <---- Definitely good information to know with two little boys around. ;-) Also, lemon or orange oil extract is best for cleaning, which is awesome because I actually have some of those oils lying around.
And lastly, JORD now offers free shipping worldwide! So, hop on their website and take a peek, you just might fall in love. In fact, I promise you will.
