Jord Wood Watch Review & Giveaway
I recently got a new watch. It is a unique watch, made of wood. As you may know I have a side hustle making wooden home decor, so I am always interested in what other people are doing with wood. This watch comes from Jord Watches and they have a whole collection of seriously beautiful wooden watches. I love the ones with a mix of woods. The colours and wood grains are fantastic. They have some very attractive wood watches for men.
This is my first new watch in many years. I stopped wearing watches more years ago than I can remember. I had a calculator watch I was very fond of, maybe even more than one. I wore a variety of watches through high school and then in university I switched to a pager and then cell phones to keep track of time. I am not a fan of watches with metal or plastic bands. They either pull the hairs out of my arm or make my wrist sweat. I do have a watch that was my grandfathers that I liked to wear when I was younger - mostly for how it looked. It was damaged before it come into my possession and doesn't keep time very well so it isn't particularly functional as a timepiece.
[three-fifths]My Jord watch is not only attractive, I also find the strap - which is almost entirely wood is more comfortable than I remember metal straps being and doesn't make my wrist sweat like plastic straps do. They make the strap to fit your wrist, so make sure you measure accurately. I'd recommend adding a little extra length. I sent in the exact measurement of my wrist. [/three-fifths]
I discovered within the first week that on particularly humid days, which we have been experiencing lately, that my wrist swells a little and the result is that the strap is too tight to wear on those days.
[three-fifths-first]These watches are made of wood and as such are not water proof. I can however attest to the fact that they can withstand running through a very heavy downpour pushing a stroller... We had the misfortune to get caught in a significant thunderstorm and accompanying deluge while walking home from a friend's house. We were able to wring out all of our clothes and my watch kept ticking. [/three-fifths-first]
