Unique Gift: Wrist Watch [review + Giveaway]

Ever since I can remember, a metal watch has been my preferred style for a watch. The look and the design were classic. However, metal watches can be heavy and some people might have skin sensitivities to metal watches. A wooden watch is a great alternative to the metal band! Jord Wooden Watches offer a unique gift of a lightweight watch, natural wooden band, and high quality quartz watch mechanics.

Made from natural wood (pre-treated)

Jord wooden watches are much more than just watches. Made from natural woods and finished with natural Tung Oil, these are statement pieces for the nature conscious and eco-friendly conscious person. The wooden watches are made from a variety of natural woods. The wood covers the face and makes up the watch band. Movement options include: self-winding automatic mechanical, multi-function self-winding automatic mechanical, battery powered (quartz), and battery powered chronograph. Glass is scratch-resistant. Basically, these are high quality watches, but the band and face cover are made from wood. The deployment buckle with push buttons is made from metal.

I did a little research on Tung Oil because I had never heard of it before. It is a natural oil that has been used for thousands of years for pre-treating wood. Pure tung oil is pressed from a seed, but I'm sure there are many diluted and mixed tung oils available for purchase.

The watch itself, the design, the mechanism, and the working were high quality and what I would expected. I've owned several higher-end watches because they last for a very long time. Jord is definitely a competitor there based on what I have seen so far.

The watches comes packaged very well in a cute little wooden box. Perfect for gift giving!

One of the things that struck me the most about this watch was how lightweight the wood was. I am used to wearing a heavier metal watch (even though the watch is slim), so it was nice to have a watch that is a little lighter. I almost forgot I was wearing it!

 Another thing that I liked was the color of the Red Sandalwood. The color popped against most outfits and created a nice accessory. I don't usually wear a lot of accessories like bracelets and jewelry, so the watch was a nice addition.

Jord offers high end watches for both men and for women. If you are looking for a unique Father's Day gift or for an eco-friendly friend, Jord wooden watches are perfect!
