Hello, my lovelies! Today I have something a little different to share with you and I truly hope you'll enjoy it. I was recently contacted by the Jord Wood Watch company and asked if I would be interested in receiving a watch from them for review. Now, to be honest, I haven't worn a watch in years. I was fully expecting to politely decline their offer, but when I went to their website and checked out their designs, I was intrigued.
Jord watches are designed in St. Louis Missouri, which is a city I've always thought of as a second home, as I've spent so much time there. Plus, you know how much I love shopping locally and supporting independent designers, right? All Jord watches are made from real wood. I picked out a maple wood watch because it's the palest shade they offer. It's a perfect summertime accessory for when I'm trying to stay away from wearing all black in the hot sun.
I love the simple, androgynous and modern design. The band is adjustable, which is great because I have teeny-tiny wrists and always find that watches and bracelets and things are usually too large for me. I was surprised at how lightweight the watch actually is. It feels like it's barely there.
Each Jord watch comes with its own square wooden box, which I think is a delightful way to store your watch when not in use. If you're wondering, as I was, how to pronounce "Jord," it's actually a Scandinavian word with a nearly-silent "r," sounding like "yode."
The Jord Fieldcrest series is available in Maple, Natural Green, or Black and sells for $120 USD.
