JORD Wood Watches - #Win $159 Gift Certificate

Disclosure: I received a product to help facilitate the review. All opinions stated, however, are genuine and my own.

Welcome to the JORD Wood Watches - $159 Gift Certificate Giveaway Event!

I will admit it - I'm a watch girl. I love beautiful watches. I could never afford to purchase one as a child, but I'd admire them so much.

One day I received this most gorgeous of watches. It had a blue bland with gold trim and white plate, just beautiful. I probably would have worshipped that watch.
I couldn't believe I had received such a gift. I am unsure of the cost then, but based on it's design, I'll assume it was a women's fashion watch.
I was in the orphanage for goodness sake! And I promised myself to keep it in my socks if I had to, so it would not be stolen.

The next day it was broken. The locker door crushed it.

I bawled.

I was blamed for being irresponsible.

I've never owned or loved any other watches since then.

Now I just admire them.

I also admire JORD wooden watches. I was excited when I was asked to review one of the pieces. Maybe I'll fall in love again right?

The watches do command attention. It makes you wonder how they could make it out of wood and it not being stiff and awkward! I was very intrigued.

I received the Jord 94a Series in Chocolate.  It is so well-made that you cannot tell it's just wood.


I love watches because it's right there on your arm, and finding the time is very convenient. Not only is it a time-piece, it's also fashionable.

I rarely have my phone in my hand or close to any tablet or screen to find the time, so for me having a watch on my arm to easily glance the time is very convenient. Maybe I'm just old school.

I suppose the chocolate color goes with my chocolate skin, but I am told I need bolder colors for my skin.
But this watch can be worn with any color ensemble.  And I agree with the idea of using natural elements instead of metal.  This is a genius idea to divert from the norm and still make fashionable watches.

It's very easy to set the time. I loved the wider face, it makes it easy to see and read the time. I also love the color pattern on the face plate. It is a very nice blue during the daytime.

I wish I could say I have a watch again, but I don't.  At least not yet....

The Jord 94a Series Chocolate is just too big for my wrist. That is very disappointing. I would have loved to be able to wear it for myself.  It would make for an interesting conversation starter.

I waited for my husband to arrive home to give it a try, and it was also too big for his wrist. We are hoping to see if we can get it adjusted.

So my only con is that I wish it had more than one adjustable setting, so it could fit any wrist or close to it as possible. Otherwise, the Jord 94a Series in Chocolate is the perfect dress watch for either gender!

94A SERIES Chocolate - $159
Why have that wood grain on the dash when you can have it on your wrist. The 94A series includes a brilliantly etched, multi-colored, metallic face. Square, scratch-proof glass, secure Citizen Miyota movement with date. Stainless steel clasp fastens securely with a simple pinch.
  • Hardened, Scratch-proof glass face: 26mm x 33mm
  • Wood frame / bezel: 48mm x 42mm
  • Band width: 26mm - 37mm transition design (5pc links)
  • Lug ends: 42mm
  • Stainless face
  • Single action clasp
  • 3-hand Citizen Miyota movement with date window
  • Includes stained bamboo display box
Each JORD watch is designed to be splash proof but is not intended for complete submergence in water. Also note that due to the nature of the wood chosen for each unique timepiece, colors and grain pattern may vary from photos.

My husband isn't a fan of wearing watches. Something about it getting caught in the hairs on his arm, so I know if this get adjusted, then it would be all mine :)

I look forward to wearing the JORD timepiece.
