I’ve been a bit stuck for present ideas for my husband this year. My husband makes bespoke wooden furniture for a living. If I ask him what he’d like for Christmas he will usually ask for some type of woodworking powertool! (not really my area of expertise). When I was contacted by Jord Watches to ask if I would like to review a 100% wooden men’s watch I absolutely jumped at the chance. I knew one of their natural wood watches would be the perfect gift for my wood obsessed husband.
We had a browse through the different designs on the Jord website – there were lots of different watches that we liked. They are modern designs but made with the natural material so look different from other watches I’ve seen. There are a range of men’s watch designs available. There is also a women’s watch selection too. After some deliberation Rolando decided on the Fieldcrest design in Zebra Wood and Maple. This watch costs £110 with free shipping to the UK and worldwide.
Rolando was thrilled to receive his Jord watch when it was delivered – it really is a cool watch! The strap and surround are made from a dark coloured zebra wood which has quite a noticeable grain. The face is much lighter in colour. I really like the contrast between the two different types of wood.
The watch comes in a beautiful wooden presentation box which is a lovely extra special touch, especially if you are buying this watch as a present. The watch is very well made and will definitely last a long time. It has scratch resistant glass which is great for Rolando as he will be wearing it everyday. You are able to submit your wrist measurement at the time of ordering to make sure that your watch is sized correctly. Rolando’s watch came out a fraction on the large size but he was able to get it resized.
Rolando has been wearing his watch for a few days now. The thing that he has really noticed is that watch is very lightweight, much lighter than a metal watch of the equivalent size. He also likes how the back plate of the watch is also made from wood rather than metal. This makes it comfortable to wear. Rolando has been showing it off to his watch to his carpenter friends and has had lots of compliments.
I would really recommend a Jord Watch as a beautiful and unique gift this Christmas. It is possible to have your Jord watch or the presentation box engraved (at an additional cost) – which would be a great touch for a gift. As shipping is from the USA I would recommend that you check the last shipping dates before Christmas on the Jord Website.

I was gifted this watch in exchange for an honest review – all of the opinions given are my own.
