As a nurse, wearing a watch at work is a must for me. They have to be functional and hold up to lots of wear and tear, and in the process, don’t always end up really pretty. Sometimes when I go out on a date night or to church, I want to go a more fashionable route and wear a watch as an accessory to my outfit, but the watches I wear to work just don’t cut it. So when I saw Jord wood watches, I fell in love right away with their style- each one is a high quality piece crafted from natural wood! I received my Sidney Series watch in Cherry and Mother Pearl, and I was so excited to wear a piece that was so beautiful (not to mention the incredible packaging it came in!).
I loved Jord’s style right away because it was so different than any other high quality fwatch styles I have ever seen. Each watch series is distinctively crafted from different types of wood with a nod to modern styles and natural elements- which really fits with my lifestyle in general. I have a deep love of dark cherry woods, and paired with the iridescent mother pearl, the colors really pop. And true to my own style with just a touch of sparkle, there are Swarovski crystals at each hour marker. The larger band and case really gives the Sydney a bold, modern style that’s perfect for a fun night out or to really dress up some jeans and a heavy sweater.
Besides the bold, natural look of the watch that I already love, there are a few smaller elements of the watch that make it really nice to wear. Since the watch is primarily made of wood, the watch itself is so much lighter than I expected for a bolder style watch. Plus the face has a chronograph stopwatch movement that can keep time for up to an hour, and shows military time on one of the dials (which of course comes in super handy as a nurse!). I also love how the Sydney has a deployment buckle that opens two ways on the back with just a touch of the side buttons. It makes the band look smooth and seamless when clasped.
Jord makes a wide variety and style of high quality pieces, from slimmer, lighter color women’s watches to wider, bold men’s styles with modern gear designs in the face. My husband has his eye on a few of their sportier pieces that would be a perfect gift for Father’s Day, and there are ton’s of perfect women’s styles that Mom would love to get this May.
