Watches have been around since the 16th century and for good reason; being able to easily tell time at any point of the day is crucial without fumbling around trying to find a phone or looking for a clock. One would think with today’s modern technology that the wrist watch would be dying out and ultimately one day disappearing altogether, but the wristwatch is still thriving and surviving despite technological advancement because they’re more than just a way to keep track of time, they’re also a fashion statement!
I stumbled across JORD Wood Watches and was intrigued by the intricate mechanical designs of some of their pieces as well as the watches being made out of 100% natural woods like maple, bamboo, zebrawood, cherry, blackwood, koa and sandalwood. You can tell that each piece had a lot of thought and time go into the designing process. They’re so classic yet industrial-looking, almost like they came out of the 19th century, especially the Dover pieces which are my husband and my faves.
Jord Wood Watch: The Perfect Summer Fashion Statement for Men
Style: We received the Dover Series Men’s Wood Watch in ebony and copper. I liked this one because it’s a classic black which is versatile and can be worn with just about everything. The Dover is made with ebony, which is a dense hardwood and a genuine copper ring. Industrious and established watch wearers will be drawn to the streamlined styling of this timepiece. My husband is not usually a watch wearer but he made an exception for this awesome wood watch.
Size: You can get these custom fit to your wrist size, which you can easily do by measuring with it a piece of string or body tape. The watches face is a perfect size! Not too bulky nor small, which makes it a great summer fashion statement for men. They even have women’s watches that I now must get my hands on!
Price: The Dover series is $295 but JORD Wood Watches go anywhere from $129 – $295 depending on the style selected. Don’t let the price scare you, they’re totally worth it since they come neatly packaged and are handcrafted perfectly to last a long time. You can even do a payment plan if it’s too much money all at once.
