Find Something For HIM And For HER At JORD

Jord Final 1

This year, my husband, Ben, and I were looking for a way to celebrate each other for all of our hard work throughout the year as parents of our four kids. Mother's Day and Father's Day usually arrives quicker than we realized and with our big family we never seem to have time to plan much more than a meal out to eat together as a family (and hey, as a Mom who primarily cooks all the meals, I'm not complaining!). I was thrilled when JORD allowed me to review two of their unique wood watches (pictured above), at no cost to facilitate this review, because this was something both my husband and I could appreciate not only for Mother's Day and Father's Day, but all year around. Though we give up a lot for our children in the way of time, and material things, it's important every now and then to find a way to commend each other on a job well done - and JORD helped us do just that!

What Is A JORD Watch?

Jord final 3

Jord was derived from our desire for a timepiece that modeled our modern lifestyle. Sustainable, efficient, simple, and influenced by experiential living. Jord owners don't just have somewhere to be, they have somewhere to go. We believe our watches tell more than time. - JORD 

Our style is guided by a deep appreciation for natural elements and modern design. Wood is not just a component of our watches, it is the main feature. The intricacy and multiplicity of the woods we utilize in our designs insure that each watch is as distinctive as the owner. - JORD Creates

Jord is a collective of artists, designers, and seasoned watchsmiths. Every watch series is planned with the expectation of delivering visible craftsmanship and unyielding utility. We choose our materials and movements with forethought. Consideration of best use and added benefit are central to our decision making process. Our methods ensure that our watches are not just worn, they're used. 
- JORD Constructs

To put it simply, JORD watches are made with one of the most raw and natural materials found on earth. There is something so natural yet bold about wearing a time piece made of wood, that when I wear it, inspires me to find an adventure, let my creativity flow a little farther, and take the long way home.

My JORD watches arrived in these fantastic wooden boxes, pictured above. Just like each JORD watch is made from it's own unique piece of wood, so are the boxes they arrive in. The lids, detailed with the JORD emblem and logo on the top and the sides, slide open to reveal the naturally perfect watch. JORDS packaging truly is just as impressive and each one different, just as the watches themselves. When giving a JORD watch as a gift to your favorite Mom or Dad this year, the presentation has already been taken care of for you. The stunning beauty and craftsman ship of the box itself is just a hint of what is in side. Unlike the hinged cases other watches or jewelry comes in, these boxes will be ones you want to keep. They are the perfect place to keep your JORD watch when it's not on your wrist, and are small enough, and handsome enough, to have a permanent place on your dresser, nightstand, or wherever you keep your accessories.

Ben received the handsome JORD Delmar White watch, priced at $149. My husband is usually leans more towards the urban style and though you might not think it, this time piece goes perfectly with his attire. He also recently took a new leadership position in a company and dresses a little more business causal. Whether he's dressed for an evening out, a day on the job, or just out and about with the family, Ben always reaches for this watch. There's no style this watch won't compliment and it's simple face design and slightly square build always lends itself to bringing sophistication to any look.

Delmar's versatility is inherent in the design, making it a true chameleon. The industrial dial complements the angled case and transitional band. We choose saturated carbon fiber colors and muted wood tones to add contrast. The Delmar is fitting for casual attire but can transition seamlessly to suit and tie.

I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to review the JORD Maple watch from the Ely Series, priced at $129. Aside from the obvious reasons to love a watch made of wood, being a girl with a smaller, petite frame, I love that JORD provides the Ely Series and this watch especially which has a slimmer band and smaller face than some of their other watches. There is eye-catching beauty about this time piece! The creamy color of this watch makes it wearable with just about anything and thanks to more recent fashion trends of mixing metals and blacks and browns I can pair my JORD with just about any bracelet accessory I own! It definitely adds the perfect trendy touch when I'm dressing down. When I'm wearing jeans, this is the first accessory off my dresser and onto my wrist. The Maple Ely is perfect for any causal style but still classy enough to wear with a simple spring or summer dress. I absolutely love this watch!

Ely is the complement to our Fieldcrest series, produced using a slightly smaller dial and band, with the addition of a date display. The simplicity of this design accentuates the intricacy of the wood grain. The Ely is understated and effortless.
