With Father’s Day approaching in June, and April is the birthday month for many of my friends, I have GIFTS on the brain! Believe it or not, last Friday was actually my BFF’s birthday. Now I had been trying to come up with gift ideas for him for awhile now. So when I had the opportunity to learn more about Wooden Watches by JORD, the light bulb went off!
Now my bestie is quite a punctual man. He’s a stickler for time, and trust me, I always hear it when I show up my usual 10-15 minutes late. He has quite a collection of watches, which is why he’s probably always on time (or early!). So what better gift to give him than a truly UNIQUE watch, different from any of the other ones he sports.
JORD watches are designed to take people back to nature and away from today’s metal & rubber. We want to challenge the norm by making unique time pieces as a focal point for everyday fashion.
JORD crafts 100% natural Wooden Watches for a truly unique look. They use everything from bamboo to blackwood to sandlewood to cherry to maple to teak. I absolutely LOVE that JORD uses sustainable materials to create their watches.
JORD sent the Black & Maple design from their Sully Series, protected in a box and cushioned on a JORD embellished pillow. It was the perfect little gift box to wrap the gift up in.
Now since this watch was a gift, presentation is always important in my mind. I loved the little JORD tag attach to the watch that helped give the presentation an “earthy” and “sustainable” feel, while still giving off that casual and professional style.
The watch bands are similarly made from the same types of wood. I love the contrasting look that comes with the Black & Maple. Band width measures 25mm. While the wood is considered “splash-proof”, JORD does not use any toxic chemicals to treat or protect the watch.
The clasp on this watch is a single action locking clasp, made from stainless steel. The engraved JORD emblem is a nice touch. While the clasp is easy to open and close, we luckily did not have any issues of the clasp coming undone on its own.
The face of the watch features a 3-hand Citizen Miyota Quartz movement. The glass on the watch is a scratchproof (and splash-proof!) “blue film” glass. The diameter of the face measures 33mm diameter, while the frame measures 41 mm.
As I mentioned previously, I love that JORD watches offer both a mix of casual and professional styles. What is great about the Sully style and the other watches offered by JORD, is that you can wear them with a t-shirt and a pair of jeans, or out and about in a fitted suit. It’s definitely a unique timepiece to go with any style!
After we gave the watch to him, my son did request the box back. At first I thought it was odd that a year old wanted the box… However it was not the box he was after! My son wanted the watch pillow, as it turned out, it was the perfect size for his Iron Man to use when “napping”. So yes to all you dads out there… the watch pillow doubles as a pillow for your daughters’ dolls and sons’ action figures!
