When it comes to summer style, my husband likes to keep it simple. His go-to outfit is a solid colored top, khaki shorts and flip flops. He’s not much for accessories, but the one item he never goes without is a watch. Besides looking stylish, he likes that a watch helps him keep track of time. Sure, he always has his phone attached to his hip, but he still likes telling time the old-fashioned way.
His collection of watches has grown over the years, but the one watch he grabs time and time again, whether he’s going to work or spending a day with family, is his JORD wood watch.
JORD (pronounced YODE) watches are truly a one-of-a-kind. Handcrafted from natural wood and sapphire crystal glass, they are beautiful, strong and unique.
My husband loves his JORD watch that we reviewed a few years back, so when we were invited to feature JORD again, I jumped at the opportunity. It was close to Father’s Day, so I thought it would be fun to pick out a watch for him and gift it to him as a Father’s Day gift. He’s been wanting a new watch for a while now, so it really was perfect timing.
After browsing the JORD website, I picked out the Dover Series Olive & Acacia. I really like the contrast of the deeply grained acacia against the velvet olive wood and steel gray ring. The open face allows you to see the intricate parts of the watch move, which is so cool!
The best part is the drive system is self-winding automatic, so it doesn’t require a battery. It’s modern, simple, and totally unique!
The watch arrived in a gorgeous, handcrafted wood box with the JORD logo engraved. The box has a little drawer to store extra links and finishing oil for care and conditioning. How impressive!
The moment my husband opened the box and saw the watch, his eyes lit up and he couldn’t stop smiling. It was love at first sight and that made the kids and I so happy! It’s quickly become his go-to watch for both work and casual settings.
The one thing that really stands out about this watch is the quality. I can tell that it is built to last. The wood is beautiful and surprisingly lightweight. I can see my husband wearing it for years to come!
If you are looking for a unique gift or timepiece to add to your collection, take a peek at the JORD website. You’ll find beautiful watches for men and women in a variety of styles and types of wood. Any of them would make a great gift!
