EASY ENTER! Giveaway Contest and Product Review: JORD Wood Watches


Having secretly been crushing on wood watches for about 3 years now, I was happily surprised when I was asked to review a wood watch by JORD (pronounced: /yōd/) Wood Watches. After I received one and fell absolutely in love with it, I was excited to be able to offer my readers a chance to win one too. But more on that in a minute!  First, I'd like to show you my JORD Wood Watch and tell you why I love it and why I felt it was a good enough product to offer as a giveaway to my readers.

I chose the Cora Series Wood Watch with Rose Gold Dial set in Koa.  Koa is a beautiful hardwood native to Hawaii, and it comes in different tones from medium gold to darker almost mahogany, depending on the harvest season.

When you choose a watch on the JORD website, they walk you step-by-step through the sizing process and then size your watch for you before shipping.  Don't worry, they include a link or two just in case you measured wrong or you gain or lose a little weight and you need to adjust the sizing.

The watch arrived in a clearly marked box and much care is put into shipping!  The watch arrived well protected in a Cedar valet humidor watch box along with a cleaning cloth, JORD preserve citrus oil, and a micro-fiber glass cleaning cloth.

When you open the box, you will find the watch cushioned on a pillow inside the humidor box.  It also arrives with a protective clear layer over the glass and the silver clasp, which you can easily peel off and remove as well as the wood tag.

Gorgeous box not only protects during shipping but protects at home when you aren't wearing it.
First glance - I fell in love with the quality, color and feel of the wood.

  • Quality internal mechanisms. No batteries here.  This is the real deal.  The internal mechanisms move the hands and power the watch. I love that I can glimpse them on the cut out circle on the face but also the open back.
  • Sapphire Glass - which is a synthetic crystal, not actual glass.  It's tougher and more scratch resistant.
  • The aforementioned Koa wood. The colors are natural and do not contain any stains, dyes or harsh chemicals.
  • The rose gold dial.  Not a bright coral, but an understated color that blends well with any outfit; dressy or not.
  • It goes well with any outfit I wear.  (See below!)

Gorgeous natural hues of wood
Hiking, dressing up or everyday outfits - a wood watch from JORD goes perfectly with them all.

 And if you own and love an Apple watch, guess what?  THEY HAVE WOOD WATCH BANDS FOR APPLE WATCHES!  They also offer engraving - to make your gift extra special for someone you care for.
