A watch is both a necessity and a piece of accessory to me. Yes, we live in the age of smartphones that go everywhere with us, BUT I still prefer the good old wrist watch to check time. Having a few timepieces in my collection, I still did not own a wood watch until now. JORD specializes in making luxurious, sustainable wood watches for men and women; shipping worldwide. You have a lot of options in terms of the type of wood, glass and movement of the watch. I went for their Frankie 35 Series in Dark Sandalwood & Mint. I am a sucker for packaging so when I received the watch in a wood box along with a little cushion, it definitely made me happy. Another thing I liked is that JORD will do custom sizing, so you receive a wearable watch right away.
Talking about the watch, it is lightweight and I hardly feel it on my wrist. The dark sandalwood has a beautiful finish and feels smooth. The mint dial just pops against the dark sandalwood and makes for a perfect amalgamation of dark and cool tones. The style is minimalist which I personally prefer for everyday wear. Not to forget the attention to detail and craftsmanship involved, with the brand name engraved on the box and watch. Overall, the watch is one of a kind.
