JORD Ely wood watch

I’ve always really loved the look of a modern wooden watch, and after buying my husband one for his birthday a while back, I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect one for myself. Well as luck would have it, Jord made my search MUCH easier by offering me one of their beautiful watches to review! I chose the lovely “Ely” watch in Maple because of its simple design, and I couldn’t be happier with the new addition to my wardrobe.

First of all, this watch feels so incredibly light that sometimes I forget I even have it on because it’s so comfortable to wear! Thankfully there’s a scratch-resistant face to protect it as I clumsily flail my arms around all day :-) The unfussy neutral style also makes it easy to pair with just about any outfit you can think of aside from a sequined floor length gown. Flannel shirts? Yep. Cozy sweaters? You betcha. Cool tees? Absolutely! The watch seems to be well constructed, and I love how the the natural beauty of the wood is brought to the forefront in its design. All in all, this baby is a minimalist lover’s dream!

Even better? Jord watches are handcrafted with care from 100% sustainably sourced wood from across the globe, AND they refrain from using toxic chemicals to treat/protect the wood – how cool is that?? They offer watches for both men and women, so head on over to their site and make a dent in your holiday shopping list!

    Have you noticed any discoloration so far on the underside of the band? It might be a trait specific to metal and leather watch straps, but inevitably my skin oils (omg that sounds gross) tend to change the surface that sits on my wrist full time, you know? xo

      Haven’t noticed anything like that, but I’ve only had it for a few weeks so far. I don’t imagine it would discolor with use though…I’ll let you know if gets grody !
