JORD Wood Watch Review & Giveaway

*I received a JORD Ely Wood Watch in Maple for purposes of evaluation. Thoughts are my own.

I have always loved wearing watches. I still remember the first time I ever received a watch as a kid and not taking it off for days. I used to love — and in a way, collect — casual, bold and fun watches. I especially loved ones with cartoon characters on the face or the band. But now I prefer simpler and more formal ones in either gold or silver tone. And when I was offered a chance to review a wood watch (I have never seen an actual one before), I thought twice because I wasn’t too sure if I would like it. But now I’m glad I said yes to that opportunity because I really liked it!


I chose the Ely wood watch in Maple. When I received the box, I opened it immediately and was impressed because it was nicely packaged. The Wood Watch was cushioned by a small pillow and there was also a nice wood tag.

JORD Wood Watch 1

The Ely series has an elegant small-face design. This is the kind of watch that makes you grin for no apparent reason. Light, sexy, and compact design makes this a popular, everyday watch. There are no numbers on this watch other than the date (but we’ll assume you already know how to tell time).
– Hardened, Scratch-proof glass face: 26mm diameter
– Frame / bezel: 34mm diameter
– Band width: 21.5mm
– Lug ends: 40mm
– Single action locking clasp (stainless steel)
– Premium Citizen Miyota movement with date window

JORD Wood Watch

I like the simplicity of this wood watch. It’s very easy to just use it as an accessory whatever your outfit may be because of its versatility. I was also very surprised at how light the whole watch is. I usually wear a large-face steel watch so the weight of this wood watch came as a surprise.

Each JORD watch is designed to be splash-proof but is not intended for complete submergence in water. And due to the nature of the wood chosen for each unique timepiece, colors and grain pattern may vary from photos. See below for images of the different wood watches from JORD.

This JORD Wood Watch is a great idea for a gift for a loved one and even for yourself. I love the overall feel of it and it really looks well-made. I’m pretty sure people will take a second look when they see it!

    • I thought this was an international contest…I’m from Greece. So, don’t count me 🙁

  5. These watches are just absolutely gorgeous! I love the earthy look and feel. We live in Colorado, and it’s quite dry, I’m wondering how they hold up to dry climates? Either way, I know my husband would love to add one of these to his watch collection.

  6. I think I like the 746 SERIES Black best, it’s gorgeous, and the gears are visible, which my husband really likes.

  7. I love watches as well, I consider them as much a part of my outfit and that they make a fashion statement. I love the look of the Jord wood watches! They are very different and they definitely make a bold statement. I would really love to win one!

  8. I like the 746 SERIES Black and Im thinking about getting it for my husband for our 10 year anni

  9. These watches are very visually attractive. If I were to purchase one I think I would pick one from either the Ely or Fieldcrest line. Thank you for this post.

  10. I really like the Sully (Cherry & Maple). This is one attractive watch and would be proud showing this off.

  11. After looking at what’s available. the watch I would select is the ‘SULLY SERIES cherry’, as it is one that goes great with my suit. Which is why as a bonus I would advertise that of where I obtained the watch – telling each person I come across that the place to go and get their own is that of the web site!

  12. I love Jord – and have so many favorites! Among them are the 746-Black, 94A in Natural Green & Maple and the DELMAR – especially in Red and in Green! Thanks
