Since I stated blogging, I have been introduced to some amazing products and brands. Products and brands that I more than likely would have never known about otherwise. One such brand is JORD! Who or what is JORD you ask? Well JORD is a company based out of Missouri that designs timepieces that are ‘sustainable, efficient and simple.’ How exactly do they do this? Well all of their timepieces (watches) are made out of wood. Yes, you read that right, they are made out of wood. And they are fabulous.
When the JORD Sully Cherry & Maple Wood Watch landed on my desk, I had been in the market for a new watch. Despite my love of watches, it had been years since I had bought myself a new watch. I actively started looking for a new one in January, but nothing I saw was standing out to me. Everything was the same, and quite honestly, pretty damned boring. So when JORD reached out, I did a little research, and I was impressed. And of course my magpie self ‘WANTED ALL THE THINGS’, but I ultimately decided to go with the JORD Sully Cherry & Maple Wood Watch and it was the right choice for me.
The JORD Sully Cherry & Maple Wood Watch is a conversation starter. There hasn’t been a day that I have worn it when someone, be it on the street or the subway, hasn’t stopped me to ask about it and where they can get one for themselves. It kind of freaked me out at first, being approached by random people, but now I’m so used to it and have no problem stopping to talk, chat, or show off my JORD Sully Cherry & Maple Wood Watch.
The watch itself is made out of both Cherry and Maple wood. It makes the watch itself quite striking between not only the two types of wood, but the two colours of the wood as well. The JORD Sully Cherry & Maple Wood Watch is suitable for both men and women, as it is a bit of an oversized watch, which is just how I like my watches. The craftsmanship is superb and the detail is stunning. The best part is, that you can order the watch to size. JORD has a handy schmandy resources for you to measure your wrist so that when you order the watch, you are ordering a custom and to the right size watch for yourself. No trips to the watchmaker to get links taken out are needed. Just take it out of the box, put it on, and prepare to A) answer a boatload of questions about it, and B) find yourself gazing at its awesomeness throughout the day.
If you are interested in a #JORDWATCH for yourself, the JORD Sully Cherry & Maple Wood Watch retails for $139 US. Head on over to the JORD website and take a look at all the amazing styles they have on offer. As much as I love my JORD Sully Cherry & Maple Wood Watch , I’ve got my eye on both a CORA in Zebrawood & Turquoise and a SIDNEY in Maple & Rose Gold.
