Awhile ago, the team at JORD Watches (woodwatches.com) sent me a lovely wood watch – Ely in Maple! I have been wearing watches I have bought in Thailand which are quite cheap, but I have been keeping a look out for a nice watch for special occasions. Now, I now have my own #jordwatch.
The Ely series in Maple is a classic addition to your everyday outfit. Made out of maple found in Northeastern North America, the wood comes from the outer-rings of the tree – which is also known as sapwood.
The JORD watch came in a beautifully crafted box with the logo which I absolutely adore!
JORD uses 8 different types of wood in their watch-crafting, which turns into unique time-pieces for the wearer. I was worried that the watch may be a little heavy or clunky, but turns out the watch was extremely lightweight and suitable for my small wrists.
A little close-up on the details on the box
I had to add in a link to the watch as the watch came slightly smaller than the measurements I provided. They do come with 2 extra links in case you need to make the watch longer for wear. In the box, they also have the warranty card.
JORD ensures their wood materials are sustainably sourced. You can find the relevant information on their website (Under Materials > Woods).
The watch is easily secured and removed with a metal buckle, which I love. It is definitely super convenient to remove it after a long day at work. Just a quick release on the buckle and tadah! The watch is off.
Another shot to show the area where the watch is secured. You can see the engraving at the back of the watch again – so beautiful. I love how every edge of the watch is so well-finished. Every surface feels smooth and definitely not a burden to wear.
The watch is splash-proof, but should not be submerged in water! I was a little worried when water got onto my watch in the washroom, but it was okay and looked perfect still. Cleaning for the watch is also simple and au naturale. By mixing olive oil and a little lemon, you can wipe the solution with a soft cotton cloth to clean the watch with adequate care.
I love how the watch comes with a small date counter which allows me to keep track of the dates. I fail at remembering dates so this is definitely a big thank you because I do not want to whip out my phone now and then. I pair the watch together with my other bracelets for the extra oomph!
What I am wearing on my wrists are all items from around the world. From Taiwan to Thailand to the US, the JORD watch is definitely a great piece to have.
A big thank you to the team at JORD watch for sending this to me. I love this watch and my boyfriend thinks it is really special too! :)
