I was given this beautiful watch, free of charge, for purposes of this review. All opinions are 100% my own.
About the JORD Ely Wood Watch:
“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.”
“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.” Visit the JORD website for more details and to browse all their beautiful and unique Wood Watches.
I really wasn’t sure what to expect when I was asked to review a JORD wood watch. I could only envision a watch made out of clunky, Lincoln Logs or something similar. I was so wrong! The Maple Ely series, also available in Cherry, Black and Natural Green and Maple, is light, feminine and not at all like Lincoln Logs! The watch is so beautiful and unique I can hardly find the right words to describe it. The watch face is easy to read as the ticks are dark silver on a light colored (maple) background. It does not have any numbers, which makes it more beautiful and elegant. Less is more with the JORD watch.
The glass face is scratch-resistant and is small, perfect for us ladies. Some prefer a large watch face. Don’t worry, JORD has a wide selection of sizes and styles for just about anyone. In fact, a JORD watch would be perfect for a unique Mother’s Day or Father’s Day gift.
The watch clasp is a simple locking action made of stainless steel. It is very easy to open and close, once you figure out that you need to press in the sides to make the clasp release.
This watch makes me feel like I am closer to nature and in touch with the beautiful world around me. in fact, JORD says “Our wood watches are one of a kind, premium quality time pieces, hand-crafted with sustainable materials from all over the world.” I never imagined that I would own an Eco-friendly watch that was so unique and pretty! The word JORD is Swedish for Earth, Soil or Land.
The only thing I would change is the sizing. I have to take it to a jeweler to have it resized. It would be more convenient if I could have gotten it customized to fit my wrist.
Overall, I LOVE my JORD watch and can’t wait until I can get it resized so I can show it off! I highly recommend this watch for anyone who needs that perfect gift for the hard to buy for person in your life! It’s a timeless and classically beautiful gift!
