Wooden Wrist Watch

We're living in an age where we rely on our phones for practically everything. And I do use my phone for a number of things but not for the time because I still prefer to wear a watch. I actually feel like something's missing whenever I leave the house without one. Honestly it's just easier to look at my wrist for the time than to take out my phone. And I don't want to be one of those people who is constantly looking at their phone.

I consider watches to be fashion accessories. My Cartier Roadster is my absolute favorite but I have a rotation going so they all get some regular wear. JORD recently sent me this Frankie 35 watch. The minimal meets classic styling immediately caught my eye. Crafted of natural dark sandalwood with a slate colored face, rose gold dial and bezel, the Frankie 35 speaks to modern design meets practical function and sustainability.

The streamlined look of this watch is in line with my aesthetic and I like how it works well with my wardrobe whether dressed up or down. Aside from the unique look, this watch is cool because of how it feels substantial and lightweight at the same time. Light enough that I don't even feel like I have it on sometimes. It also looks and well made. This model features a sapphire crystal glass case, Swiss Ronda Normtech Caliber 763 movement and a deployment buckle with a push button mechanism for a secure fit. All JORD watches are also designed to be splash and scratch-proof. The watch can be easily maintained and cleaned with a a natural oil as needed. The brand sent along their JORD Preserve pen with a custom-formulated cleaning oil created specifically for the care of wood watches along with a cloth.

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 and unique watch styles in a variety of all natural and sustainable woods for men and women. All of their environmentally conscious products are handcrafted in the USA and backed with a one year warranty. Prices start at $139 and go up to $395 and the company ships worldwide. They will size your watch to your specifications so that it's ready to wear as soon as you receive it. I have to get all my link style watches resized because my wrists are small so it's a real timesaver when it's pre-done. And JORD also offers custom engraving for their watches as well as the box that they come in which adds a lovely personalized touch whether you're buying a watch for yourself or as a gift.

  1. I only wear my FitBit, and that to keep track of my steps more than to check the time. Never was a watch person, even though I appreaciate the unique approach of this design.

  5. I love the aesthetic of JORD watches but mine broke down within months. The dial and numbers fell off the face. :-(

  6. I still have my Jord watch from a couple years back but took out a few pins/links too because my wrists are really small, lol! This looks like a lovely style that you chose, Rowena! :-) Good luck to everyone!

  7. You are right. On the one hand, watches are fashion accessories. On the other hand, you have to wear a watch because is not always polite to take out your smartphone in order to look at time. A casual look at your watch is considered always courteous.
    Additionally, a watch must be stylish because it attracts attention of everybody.
    And I love these watches of YORD! They are different, stylish, striking and marvellous!

  10. This watch is beautiful, and I love that it is lightweight! I'm not a huge fan of watches that feel like they are weighing me down, so this wood one sounds perfect to me! Thanks for sharing!

  11. I've been seeing Jord watches on bloggers for a while now. They always look so chic and elegant, they seem to match any outfit. The design of Jord watches is certainly very appealing. I think that making watches out of wood is a great idea. Not just because it is ecological but also because it is visually interesting. This watch you got is gorgeous.

    Have a lovely day!
