Jord 94A Series Wooden Watch

Every so often a product comes into your being that captivates you, whether it is the scent, the style, how it is made, the colour or even it's packaging, sitting and looking at something thinking 'wow'. Well most of those apply to this absolutely beautiful wooden watch from JORD. I have in the past owned a few watches, but I always forget to wear them and spend more time relying on my phone to tell me the time, that said I love watches and need a new one.

If you haven't heard of Jord or their watches, JORD watches are made out of sustainably sourced wood from across the globe. Each watch is then lovingly crafted and are simply unique. I have the 94A Series in Chocolate, which is Jord's first mixed material watch, presented with a squared dial and metallic face, it truly is a thing of beauty.

The watch arrives in a wooden box which features the Jord Logo on top, inside the watch is neatly nested on a plaid cushion which is really lovely for demonstration purposes. Inside the box are some extra links which I had removed so it would fit and a cleaning cloth.

The watch itself is even more stunning than it looks online. It is so much lighter in weight than I had expected it to be but it is the craftsmanship of the watch which is truly amazing. Being made of wood, there are no rough edges and whilst it is chunky, it looks amazing whilst being worn, it is so unique to have a wooden watch. Each link was individually carved out of wood and linked securely together with metal pins and it uses a Double Locking Fold-Over Clasp, so once it is fastened it is really secure in place on the wrist and it uses a Citizen Miyota Quartz Movement.

I personally think the 94A Series is more suited to a man than a woman and I think it looks amazing on my husband, that said, we both absolutely love it, so it will be a race in the morning to see who can wear it first.

If you want to take a look at JORD watches, you can see the range here. They are amazingly priced, this one is $159 which is around £100 and then delivery is $20 (so just under £10) which is couriered.

What do you think of these wooden watches?

  1. I have never heard of this brand and I like the idea of it being sustainable wood. I have also never even seen a wooden watch and would never have thought to wear anything other than a metal one!
