JORD, a St. Louis-based watch company, contacted me about trying out one of their wooden watches, I jumped at the chance.
JORD wasn’t a brand I had previously heard of, so I wasn’t completely sure what to expect in terms of design and quality. Upon opening my package, I could tell that they weren’t kidding around. Every possible detail about how the watch was packaged and presented was well thought out and beautifully designed. The box itself was engraved with the JORD logo, and even the little pillow that the watch was resting on had their name stitched onto the fabric. I appreciate when a brand takes the time to pay attention to little details like that – it shows that they are professional and believe in quality.
The watch I selected was the Sidney Maple & Rose Gold Wooden Watch* ($199). What instantly drew me to this watch was, of course, the rose gold. Not only is it my favorite metallic, but it’s also so on trend right now. The light blonde maple wood paired with the rose gold makes this an accessory that will work with so many different outfits. It’s not too big and bulky, but it won’t get overlooked either. It’s a statement piece without being loud and showy. I love the minimal design, yet the pink of the rose gold and the little Swarovski crystals add just the right amount of femininity.
The quality of the watch is simply amazing. The entire piece is expertly crafted, from the smooth maple wood to beautifully designed watch face. You can have the watch sized to your exact wrist measurements before purchasing so it’s sure to fit you perfectly, which I really appreciate. This is a pricier accessory, but you’re paying for quality, design, and uniqueness, and you’re truly getting your money’s worth.
