A Timeless Gift and Treasure: #JORDWatch #Review

Thank you to JORD for providing me with product free of charge, in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions shared are my own.

My husband is a hard-working man. He works double time to provide for our family, and he is often the one who winds up going without. I love to be able to surprise him with special gifts, just to show how much I love and appreciate him and what he does for us. Sacha has been a lover of timepieces for a long time. A handsome watch is as treasured by a man, as a beautiful necklace is to a woman. My husband likes statement pieces which are unique by design, and functionality, which is why JORD Watches was a clear choice to me.

JORD dreams up the most beautiful wooden watches imaginable. Their handsome timepieces are designed to coincide with a modern lifestyle- full of unique design, while being sustainable, eco-conscious, and efficient. Their team of designers might spend all day coming up with a design, just to scrap it and start from scratch. 'Moments are bigger than minutes, and a watch should tell more than the time.' -JORD.

Our JORD Watch arrived beautifully packaged, and we couldn't wait to see it.

JORD offered us a watch of choice, and when I presented the options to my husband, he thought I was joking. He was absolutely floored by the gorgeous options available from JORD. He had been eyeing wooden watches for some time, and was just blown away by the handsome designs by JORD. 

Sacha chose the handsome Dover Series Ebony & Rosewood Watch.

The watch was packaged in a lovely wooden box, bearing the JORD logo, and lined on the inside. The watch was situated around a little pillow. At first glance, my husband was in love with the watch. As if the watch band weren't elegant enough, the face of the watch just makes it stand out all the more- a real conversation starter!

The watch came with everything shown here.

This watch is so stunning. The combination of the ebony and rosewood is so unique, and makes the watch a true stand-out accessory. The contrast between the wood coloring is so eye-catching that we've noticed plenty of strangers craning their necks to get a good look at this watch, when Sacha has been wearing it.

A perfect fit... the Dover Series Ebony and Rosewood Watch.

One of the things we love about JORD, is that they will size the watch for you, before it's shipped. We were able to provide Sacha's watch size, and it was perfectly sized before it was sent out to us. Just in case- extra links were provided with the watch, in case we needed to do a little tweaking (which we didn't). Sacha loved not only the look of the watch, but was so pleased with the fit, that he was able to slip it right on and wear it, just after removing it from the box.

This is a self-winding, automatic watch, which means that it doesn't require a battery! Having to replace watch batteries can be a bit of an inconvenience, so this is a huge win for a busy guy like mine. To care for the watch, be careful about getting it wet. Although it can withstand water (it's splash-proof), it should never be submerged. The wood can be cared for with a lemon or orange oil extract.

One happy man...

Both Sacha and I love to glance over and see the Dover Series Ebony and Rosewood Watch by JORD on his wrist. I know he feels that this is a piece that he will treasure for years to come. He goes to extra lengths to care for it, and store it properly, which is more than he does for other watches in his collection. A JORD watch is a true collector's piece, and I look forward to helping him add more JORD timepieces to his collection.

A JORD watch would make an absolutely amazing gift for anyone on your gift list this holiday season, or for a special occasion!
