If you must ask me, my absolute favourite season must be Fall. Just think about it: Fall is great! The weather finally cools down, which means you can walk out of your house without immediately breaking into a heavy sweat. Two of the year’s absolute best holidays, Halloween and Thanksgiving take place in the autumn months, which also means Christmas is just around the corner. Gifts, comfort food, spending time in front of the fireplace with your loved ones, coats, autumn colours! Yeah. Basically, Fall is heaven.
As mentioned above, the season of gifting and showing affection officially starts with Fall. Now would be a perfect time to start planning that ultimate gift for your loved one. My husband loves buying me gifts that I will use for a long time. So, I wanted to step up my game and find a gift that would wow him this year. Something that he would brag about for days, months, and years to come. That something is a beautifully designed and personalized watch. He loves stylish and unique watches that are made of great quality.
Have you ever given someone a watch as a present? Perhaps you chose a timepiece for a loved one, a family member, your best friend, or even your children. In each one of these cases a watch symbolizes a declaration that ‘we are together for every second of the day’ because there is nothing more precious than time.
I found myself very fortunate to have been approached by JORD watches to do a review of their beautiful hand-crafted, one-of- a-kind wood timepieces.
My first impression of JORD was based on their website. In the past, I have refused to complete
online purchases because the process was difficult to understand and the website was difficult to navigate. Fortunately, JORD has made it easy for all their customers. Clean, easy to navigate, and a professional looking webpage. The website is welcoming to consumers and makes online purchasing easy to complete (three step process).
First, I picked the watch that I thought would impress my husband the most (more about the item below). Second, I entered the inscription I wanted on the back of the watch. Lastly, order and pay. The entire process was easy and it took me less than 5 minutes to complete.
About the watches:
JORD wood watches are handcrafted from natural woods — Maple, Bamboo, Koa, Zebrawood, and Sandalwood among them, and the glass in this watch is a scratch-proof “blue film” glass. The watches are created from all untreated wood except for the clasp, which is stainless steel. The good news is that anyone with an allergy or skin irritation can purchase a watch like this and breathe easy. Each watch can be adjusted to your wrist size and on top of that JORD offers a 12-month warranty. They also offer FREE shipping worldwide!
The watch was delivered on time and in a perfect condition. It came in a wooden box with the JORD logo on top and nestled in a protective cushion. It looked stunning. Trust me, it would
impress anyone that is receiving the watch as a gift or keeping it for themselves.
I wanted to pick a statement piece for my husband. The watch that spoke to me the most was the Kosso&Gray watch from the HYDE series. I love that the watch looks minimalistic and elegant (I hope I can borrow it from time to time). The natural Kosso is hand finished and pre-treated with tung oils. The HYDE series is very stylish and splash-proof; however, it should not be submerged in water (3 ATM). Lemon or orange oil extract is best for cleaning the natural wood. When storing this timepiece, avoid extremely hot, cold, and excessively dry/humid environments. We picked a larger size to be safe and later had two links removed. It fits my husband’s wrist perfectly now.
The watch attracts attention and it is a conversation starter amongst our friends. Anyone who enjoys “natural” and “minimalistic” look will love it. JORD watches are the perfect blend of all things functional, fashionable, and sustainable. I find them to be truly ageless. Plus, the watch is super lightweight and resistant. If you are looking for a unique gift for someone you cherish, consider a JORD wood watch. Anyone that receives one of these beauties as a gift from you will be grateful to know you. I had my husband’s watch engraved on the back, making it extra special. A gift to cherish. These watches are perfect for Fall. Accessorizes well due to its Earthy, rustic and natural look.
JORD watches could be a perfect gift for:
Price range from $139-$495 USD, so there is something for everyone.
