10 Oct JORD Wood Watches Review + Giveaway
It’s October and fall has arrived here in Minnesota. While I’m always a bit sad when summer comes to an end, there is something special about fall. I love the crisp air, colorful leaves, football, and pumpkin spice lattes! I realize that I may be a bit crazy, but I usually start thinking about winter and naturally Christmas comes to mind. Even though Christmas is still a couple of months away, I often try to begin brainstorming gift ideas for my family. I’m hoping that there are other mamas out there who do this, too! Thankfully, my kids are pretty easy to shop for, but I find that coming up with fun ideas for my husband can be very challenging. My husband works hard to support our family and I enjoy finding gifts that I think he’ll appreciate.
A few weeks ago I was approached by JORD Wood Watches to participate in a collaboration with them. I immediately was intrigued and excited to partner with them, as wood watches are becoming really popular and I loved what I saw on their website! Specifically, they asked if I would be willing to review a men’s watch. Honestly, I was a bit hesitant at first due to the fact that the majority of my social media followers are fellow mamas. I wasn’t sure that they’d be interested in reading about a product for a guy. Then it dawned on me that it would be really fun to surprise my husband with a new watch and that this could be perfect for women who are looking for a new and unique gift ideas!
JORD Wood Watches has a nice website that shows all of the watches that are available. There are many different styles and colors to choose from for both men and women, so I have no doubt that you’ll be able to find a watch that fits your style and personality. The men’s watches come in either a round or square face and there are many options for the color tones of the wood. Seriously, there are so many cool watch styles to choose from!
I was asked by JORD to review a men’s watch from the DELMAR series and I chose the Dark Sandalwood & Blue Carbon. Trust me, the watches all look so great that I had a hard time choosing from the three options I was given for color! The company was really great to work with and I can’t say enough about how easy the ordering process was. Shipping was very fast and efficient! Just when you think you can’t possibly get more excited about JORD’s unique watches, I’m sure you’ll be thrilled to know that shipping is free! I placed my order late on a Thursday night and received the watch the following Monday.
JORD offered to have the watch sized for my husband prior to shipping which was definitely an added bonus. Once you find the watch you’d like to purchase you simply click the Custom Sizing link that is located just below the Series Options section. There are two options that you can choose from to measure your wrist for custom sizing, which includes using your own tape measure or downloading and printing the JORD Wrist Sizer. Personally, I used the JORD Wrist Sizer and this worked really well.
I think one of the first things you’ll notice about JORD wood watches is that they are beautiful! I’d heard of wood watches, but had never seen one in person until partnering with JORD for this collaboration. The JORD wood watch arrived well-packaged in a cute wooden box. I appreciate the fact that JORD pays attention to detail, even down to the packaging!
This wood watch is very versatile, as it can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. It can be worn with a nice suit for a business meeting or with a pair of shorts out on the golf course. It is well-made and very durable. One feature that is great for my husband’s active lifestyle is the scratch resistant glass. This is a must-have for all the men out there who play wild with their kids! Another feature worth mentioning is the double locking fold-over clasp, which ensures that the watch is secure once on your wrist. Again, this is perfect for active guys who don’t want to worry about their watch falling off. The clasp is stainless steel, thus it can be worn by individuals with nickel allergies.
For those who may be wondering, JORD wood watches are splash proof. Thus, you should be fine wearing it while doing dishes or going to the gym. The company does not recommend wearing your watch for activities where it might become fully submerged in water.
My husband has been impressed by how comfortable his new JORD wood watch is. Even though the watch is made from high quality wood which makes it durable, it’s light and does not weigh his wrist down. So far he has really enjoyed his new watch and has nothing negative to say! It really looks nice on him and I definitely think you should consider purchasing a JORD wood watch the next time you are looking for a special Christmas gift for someone who always seems to have everything!
JORD really does make watches that are luxurious and unique. I think you’ll be very pleased with your wood watch and will likely have many people commenting on how cool it is! Who doesn’t enjoy having a fun conversational piece in their wardrobe? While I think it’s highly unlikely, if you are not satisfied with the watch or want to make an exchange, you can do so within 15 days of delivery for a full refund. After 15 days you have up until 3 months to return or exchange your watch, but should be aware that you’ll be charged a 15% restocking fee.
Now for the fun you’ve all been waiting for! JORD has offered to host a giveaway with me where one lucky winner will receive a $75 e-gift code to the JORD shop to use towards the purchase of a wood watch!
