JORD Sidney Wood Watch

 Jord Sidney Watch, Jord Watch Review

Most of my friends don't wear watches these days and instead rely on their phones for the time. I almost always wear one because I feel like something's missing whenever I leave the house without a watch. I have a few watches and I consider them fashion accessories.

The latest addition to my collection is a JORD Sidney watch which arrived in this nice looking wooden box. This beauty has gotten alot of wear since it's sporty yet classic and feminine styling goes with a variety of looks from my summer wardrobe. The maple crafted style with a rose gold chronograph face, iridescent dial and fixed crystal bezel surrounded by delicate Swarovski crystals speaks to modern design married with practical function and sustainability.

Most of my other watches are stainless steel so I was excited about having one hand crafted of 100% natural wood. Aside from the uniqueness, the best part is that it's both substantial and exceptionally lightweight at the same time. Like so light that I don't even feel it on my wrist at times. It's also impressively well made. This model features Seiko Quartz Chronograph Stopwatch Movement and a deployment buckle with push button that is similar to some of my "fancier" watches.  All of their watches are also designed to be splash and scratch-proof.

JORD (pronounced "yod") is a Swedish word meaning “earth, soil, or land”.  The company was founded in 2013 by two brothers in St. Louis, Missouri with a mission to bring the highest quality wood timepieces to the world. They offer a range of fashionable styles in a variety of all natural and sustainable woods for men and women. All of their products are handcrafted in the USA and backed with a twelve month warranty. Prices start at $129 and go up to $275 and the company ships worldwide. And they will also size your watch to your specifications free of charge so that it's ready to wear as soon as you get it. I have small bony wrists and have to get all my link style watches resized so I think this is a really useful and timesaving service. The JORD Sidney retails for $199. Visit JORD's website here to see their entire line of wood watches. 

Would you consider wearing a wood watch? Which JORD style would you choose?

  1. I'm head over heals with this watch. I sometimes wear a watch and sometimes I don't, but like yourself I consider them fashion accessories. Today we all have our cells and other gadgets but it is nice to have a traditional watch, somehow it feels just right.

    I just love the fact this watch is made from wood...so very eco-friendly...the addition of those Swarofski crystals makes it more modern and refined. All in all, a wonderful watch.

    1. I would definitely go for your version, Rowena! Since it blends with the skin and looks really subtle at the same time! And those Swarovski diamonds make it even more to a feminine, unique and an outstanding piece! Thank you so much for your amazing comment, Rowena! You're the best, my friend!! <3 Happy Monday, Rowena!

  5. Oh wow, I just can't imagine not wearing a watch! There was a brief stage when I was younger where I didn't wear one (call it a rebellion?), but now I would simply feel lost without one on my wrist. I've heard a fair amount about this brand lately and I'm certainly impressed :)

  10. What a really cool look! I thought it was rose gold for a while! I kinda wish I wore watches more often but rarely wear anything on my wrists post-baby. I may need to change that!

    p.s. I'm trying En Japanese Brasserie! My husband saw homemade tofu and was smitten, haha.

  17. Wow would never guess the founders are from Missouri! Love the wood toned aesthetic and the "earthy" feel. But it still looks chic.

  18. Oh wow Rowena.. I totally love it on you. You're right. Many are relying on cell phones to stay on track but, like you ;) I enjoy a large watch and often wear it with a bangle or two. It's a great look and accessory.

    You are so funny Lol! I'm working up to getting the cross body bag but even at the discount it's expensive and I need to make sure it's going to get lots of wear. I worry about it being too small :\

    Happy Monday! xxL

  30. I haven't worn a watch in at least a decade but your watch makes me want to own one for sure Rowena. The first time i saw it on your Instagram i thought what a unique and beautiful looking watch. I want!!

  31. I'm not sure if I'd wear a wood watch honestly, but I definitely love the craftsmanship and the style of this. And it looks amazing on your wrist Rowena. Beautiful.

  32. The watch is really pretty! I like the convenience of not having to pull out a phone that a watch allows, but I don't actually like things on my wrists so I don't generally wear one. Even bracelets don't always last long. I did manage to keep a fitbit on my wrist for 2 months straight but took it off as soon as I won the competition. :)

  33. This is such a cool watch! I'd have chosen the same, Rowena! I also wear a watch and I love mine, but I'd love to try something new like a wooden watch! Great find, Rowena!

  34. The watch is beautiful! So original!

  38. Wow, Rowena! This is quite an intriguing piece of watch, who could have thought that a watch made out of wood can be this cool, ya?

    I am similar like you, I need to wear a watch when I go out, I guess it's just a habitual thing, something feels missing without it. I was just going to ask you how would it fare under humid or rainy kind of weather, but I guess you mentioned splash proof, so it sounds kind of all right to me though... we wouldn't want that moss to develop, right?

    But I am sure people at JORD must have figured that out and sorted it already, treated the wood or something?

    I like your piece. It's elegant yet sporty enough for daily wear, I feel.

    Lovely indeed. Hope you are gearing up for a great weekend ahead, my friend *_^

    Cheers,

  39. Aren't their watches fantastic? I originally wanted the rose gold watch you received but it was a hot ticket item and was unavailable. I absolutely love the one I go though and have been wearing it a lot. I love how soft the wood is! Fantastic photos, dear :)
