** I RECEIVED A WATCH FROM JORD WOOD WATCHES FOR FREE IN ORDER TO FACILITATE THIS REVIEW. ALL OPINIONS ARE 100% MY OWN.
Once upon a time I used to wear a watch. It was your average watch, silver. This was back in my high school years were I would go hours in silence (studying, doing homework). During this silence all I could hear was the tic toc of the clock…and it drove me insane. I would get so anxious that, one night, I threw it against a wall so I could fall asleep. Fast forward 10 years (yikes) and I rarely wear a watch. The only watch I wear now is a JORD Wood Watch which not only has beautiful aesthetics but is oh so quiet! No more tic toc to drive me up the walls! This is big, seriously big in my world.
Jord (Swedish for earth, soil, land) makes the most beautiful timepieces using diverse woods from all over the world. When I was approached about reviewing one of their wood watches I couldn’t turn this opportunity down. Even though I swooned over all their models, I came to the conclusion that the Ely was the watch for me.
The face of the watch, made with hardened, scratch-proof glass (which wins the watch extra brownie points), is 26 mm in diameter. I have always preferred a small watch over the chunky, big faced ones out there. I like a watch that won’t get stuck on things like coats and sleeves. The color is Cherry, dark, deep and beautiful. The aesthetics, well, this watch is elegant yet can be used on a daily basis. It is gorgeous.
The watch is light weight. The lion bracelet on the photo above is heavier that the wood watch, kid you not! And as you might have noticed from previous photos I still have to wind my watch (it is not the 31st of anything…won’t be for quite some time). Even though we might all check the time on our phones, these wood watches are timeless and beautiful. They make for the perfect arm candy.
Each JORD wood watch is designed to be splash proof. Please do not confuse this with submergible! So, the watch will be just fine if you wash your hands, just don’t go for a swim or into the shower/bath with it like you would with any waterproof watch.
I will make sure to take my watch off every time I wash my hands, or the dishes and even laundry.
The Ely is a timepiece that will not go out of fashion. Wear it up, wear it down. These watches will go perfectly well with any outfit. Whether you are going out on the town, to the coffee shop to chat, to work, or to run errands the JORD wood watched will make you feel close to Mother Nature.
