I have an absolute love for wood. From my hardwood floors to my mahogany dining table, I love wood. My husband shares this passion, he is currently discussing replacing all of the trim work in our home with larger wood trim in the style of older homes. One thing I never really thought about was wearing wood. I recently received a JORD Wood Watch which allows me to do just that.
It’s about time someone delivered an unconventional answer to age-old wrist candy. JORD watches are designed to take people back to nature and away from today’s metal & rubber. We want to challenge the norm by making unique time pieces as a focal point for everyday fashion.
Most of their watches seemed larger to me and more suitable for a mans wrist, so I chose the Ely Series in Black as it seemed to be the smallest option.
The Ely series is our elegant, small-face design. This is that kind of watch that makes you grin for no apparent reason. Light, sexy, and compact design makes this a popular, everyday watch. There are no numbers on this watch other than the date (but we’ll assume you already know how to tell time).
- Hardened, Scratch-proof glass face: 26mm diameter
- Frame / bezel: 34mm diameter
- Band width: 21.5mm
- Lug ends: 40mm
- Single action locking clasp (stainless steel)
- Premium Citizen Miyota movement with date window
It comes in 4 different colors: Natural Green & Maple, Black, Cherry, and Maple. I chose the Black as I really love the look of darker woods and I loved the black face of the watch.
I love this watch. I love the statement it makes. It is so completely fitting for my outdoor personality yet still elegant and glamorous. I really wanted to get one of these for my husband as it fits his personality too, but I was worried that he would be too hard on it as they are not waterproof (or Kyle proof in my husband’s case).
The watch and band are slightly thicker than I was expecting, but I think that is part of the statement it makes. The band is adjustable by removing screws. I did have slight trouble with this as the links are larger and taking only one out it was still a little loose, and taking 2 out it was too tight. This would not deter me from buying this watch. I love it! I have received tons of compliments on my new watch and love wearing it.
One lucky reader will win a Ely Series – Black watch worth $129 from JORD.
