A few weeks ago I was given the amazing opportunity to select my very own JORD Wood Watch to wear, style and basically fall in love with! Did I forget to tell you how much I have been stalking these watches? So when they offered me the chance select one for myself and then offer you guys a Giveawayy – My Lovies – with the chance to WIN your very own JORD Wood Watch… Aaaah-May-Zing!
Now, JORD Wood Watches are not only lovely, fashionable and stylish BUT they are made of wood. Definitely a unique fashion statement if I ever saw one! I mean come on – WOOD?! I think the first time I saw them was on their Instagram and I kept looking at the photos like is that really wood? How does it function? Can you wear it in the rain? Will I get splinters? Yeah folks, I mean I wondered it…don’t judge me!
Well here are JORD’s answers to a few of my questions from their FAQs Page:
JORD watches are considered to be splash proof. Normal wear and use can include kitchen activities, a day on the beach, the gym, etc. However, full submergence in water is not recommended both for the integrity of the movement and the wood itself. Excessive moisture exposure can result in a diminished flexibility in the bands wood links. If this occurs, allow the watch to dry for 1 to 2 days to allow the wood links to dry and return to their natural size.. — JORD Wood Watches
Wood watches by JORD are produced with all natural and untreated woods. This keeps them hypoallergenic and maintains the true finish of the wood. Because wood is inherently porous, it is prone to dirt and oil. For best cleaning results, mix two tablespoons each of olive oil and lemon juice. Apply a small amount to a soft cotton cloth. Wring the cloth to spread the mixture further into the material and apply to the wood using brisk strokes (this helps distribute the oil evenly).
Wood will naturally develop a patina over time but if you’d like to maintain the original appearance we recommend that you apply a natural coating such as beeswax, butcher block oil, or walnut oil. Regular application can help to protect it against damage and improve the durability of the wood while helping to maintain the moisture balance (prevent drying or cracking). — JORD Wood Watches
Okay. My questions were answered and now it was time for me to pick a watch. I can’t even explain how hard it was to pick one. They are all so amazingly unique and different. The color options, designs and styles are amazing – there is literally a JORD Wood Watch for every occasion and personality.
Since we were headed into the beginning of Spring and I have several darker toned watches I decided to go with a light wood and picked the Cora – Maple & Silver.
Cora is our first Lady’s automatic timepiece. Crystal markers bounce light off the lustrous face and the round aperture offers a clear view to the beauty and complication of the automatic movement. Cora’s elegance is grounded by the complex grain in the wood case and band. An earthly jewel; our lady’s automatic timepiece illustrates the seamless blend between function and fashion. —JORD Watch
This watch caught my eye immediately with it’s wood tone, the simple femininity and the precision of design. I knew this watch would be my perfect Spring accessory.

My watch was beautiful and I couldn’t wait to take it out for a spin in the sunshine of the amazing Spring weather. First I decided to pair it up with a pair of jeans and a bright plaid shirt for a casual Blogging Event I was hosting. It looked great! Not only did it give me that statement piece we all look for with any outfit but it worked perfectly with my casual look…
The next time I wore my JORD Watch I decided to dress it up a bit. As you can tell I love coral colors but I also love the way the color makes my watch pop even more. I decided to pair up the dress with some really neutral nude platform heels and I think this look came together great. I was so excited to take my watch out for a perfect Spring Sunday Stroll…
I even paired up my JORD Wood Watch with a surprise date night look and it was then that I noticed the precision of the watch itself.
So there ya have it! JORD Wood Watches can make any look, casual or dressy, make a statement worth noticing.
