When I wear a watch, it is being worn as an accessory. I put it on because I like how it looks. I wear a watch to add to my outfit. So just any old watch will not do. It has to look good, feel good, and have personality. My watch is making a statement so it has to rock.
Let’s face it too…. wearing a watch is also a lot handier than having to take your cell phone out every time you want to see what time it is.
I like unique watches as you can already probably tell. I wouldn’t wear a boring necklace, ring, or earrings, so why would I wear a boring watch!
Well my latest addition to my watch collection is in no way boring or same old. My newest watch is unique, bold, classy, and made out of wood. Yes, wood!
I have the Jord Cora Series Purpleheart & Mother of Pearl. I know, the name of my newest watch even wins you over and sounds so classy.
Here is the fancy way my Jord wood watch arrived all nicely nestled in a beautiful wood box and on its very own pillow.
Of course my Jord wood watch did not stay in the box long. I needed to try this wonderful piece of art and jewelry on.
One of the first things I noticed with picking up my Jord wood watch, was the weight. My Jord wood watch felt like it had substance and was in no way flimsy. I then noticed the enclosure, that to me seems like butterfly wings. I have never had an enclosure on a watch like the one on my Jord wood watch before, and I really love it. Each side has almost like a wing at the back that you need to close to clip together. It is easy to close and feels very secure.
I love the coloring of my Jord Cora series wood watch. The wood is brilliant in the purpleheart collection. The face of the watch is amazing with crystal markers. Really I think I am staring at my watch more often to adore it than to even see what time it is. 🙂

Yes, you read that correctly, my Jord wood watch does not require batteries. I just need to wear it and with my own movement it winds itself up. Now I need to just find a house that when you live in it, it cleans itself and I am all set. 🙂
I am actually wearing my Jord wood watch while I write this review. I definitely feel it on my wrist. I like the weight of the watch. I cannot hear any noise from it, unless I shake my arm like crazy and put the watch up to my ear really fast. I of course have only done that to see if I could hear anything from my Jord wood watch. This is not something I would normally do!
The Jord wood watch is easy to get on and off. With just a push of the side buttons on the clasp it undoes, but stays put so it does not fall or drop. Then just slide it off and put it to bed on its pillow if you wish. To get it back on, you just close each side of the butterfly clasp as I mentioned above.
I am in love with my Jord Cora Series wood watch. I love how it looks and feels.
Caring for a Jord wood watch is quite easy as well. Here are the simple instructions for my Jord Cora Series watc,h as per the Jord website…
FINISH & CARE
The natural purpleheart wood is hand finished and pretreated with tung oils. The Cora is splash-proof but should not be submerged in water (3 ATM).
Lemon or orange oil extract is best for cleaning the natural wood. When storing this timepiece, avoid extremely hot, cold, and excessively dry/humid environments.
Jord has a watch that will suite all styles, so if you are wanting something a little darker or lighter, there is a Jord watch for you.
If I was to get another Jord watch I would choose a lighter color this time around, not because I don’t love mine, but because then imagine the accessorizing options I could do with having a dark and light colored Jord! My eye is definitely attracted to the Cora Series Maple & Lavender wood watch. It is gorgeous as well.
I could go on forever about by Jord wood watch! I recommend that you check Jord out. A Jord watch would make a classy and treasured gift for anyone whether it is birthday, graduation, or even Christmas.
