I have been admiring JORD Wood Watches for a few years now and had coveted a women’s wooden watch to call my own. I love that they are handcrafted and use range of raw materials as well as the feeling of ‘wilderness wanderlust’ I get as soon as one of their images pops up in my Instagram feed.
I was absolutely thrilled to be asked to collaborate with JORD as they are a brand that I already had an emotional connection with – even though I was not yet a direct consumer. They say it is always a matter of timing and when the email came through about 10 days before Father’s Day a little thought crept into my head. I scanned the list of women’s watches in the Woman’s shop and picked my favourite. Curiosity got the better of me, so I had a look through the men’s wooden watch range as well. I kept coming back to a watch that I knew that Tim would absolutely love, but what about MY watch? I really, really want one! But the thing is, Tim is hard to buy for. I’ve lost count of the number of DVD’s and framed photos he has received as gifts, and apart from sending him skydiving for his 40th birthday, my gifts to him could be described as a bit hit and miss. Well, NOT THIS TIME!
With a spring in my fingertips, I ordered Tim a Koa and Black Dover series watch from the Men’s shop and eagerly waited for it to arrive from America. It arrived and like an excited child, I presented it to Tim! He was amazed and promptly announced that this was the third best present he has ever received (after Alegría and Isaac!). He was so excited that I didn’t have the heart to point out that they weren’t actually presents!
Opening a JORD watch is an event in itself. The watch comes beautifully packed in a cedar box with oil, cloth, extra links, and warranty card. The box (and selected watches) can even be personalised with custom engraving for birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, graduations or just a declaration of love.
Each JORD wooden watch is crafted out of a range of beautiful sustainable woods and sapphire crystal glass instead of actual glass (crystal glass is one of the most scratch resistant materials on earth) which is perfect for living life outdoors! A quick look at the JORD website will show you each unique watch has different textures, colours and grains along with different internal movements. We love the skeleton watches, such as the Dover, because you can actually see them working away. You know, keeping time. Oh, and you don’t even have to worry about winding your watch or flat batteries as JORD watches are self-winding watches. It truly is fascinating!
Each of JORD’s wood watches has a one year warranty, but they have two rules! If you got all crazy with your watch and it got damaged they appreciate your honesty and will charge you a small fee. If there was a defect in their workmanship, they will put their heads down in shame and repair the watch free of charge. I like this.
I can honestly say that JORD watches make a unique and distinctive gift, but it’s not just the adults that love this watch. Isaac is so enthralled with Dadda’s new wood watch he has put his order in! One day, little man. One day.
