JORD – (Swedish) earth, soil, land. In Norse mythology, Jord was the mother of Thor and the personification of the Earth
I love reviewing products that are completely different and unique from anything I’ve seen or heard of before. When I received an email from JORD asking if I would like to review and giveaway a wood watch, I wasn’t sure what to say at first. But, then I went to JORD’s website and I was incredibly impressed with all the different styles and how beautiful they were. Knowing that my husband would love a new watch, I let him choose which style he liked the best.
My husband chose the Sully Series Wood Watch in Cherry & Maple woods (the Sully also comes in Cherry, Natural Green & Black and Maple.) I have to say that this watch is even prettier in person than it is on the website. The face of the watch is 33mm in diameter and is made of a hardened, scratch-proof glass. The clasp is a single action locking clasp made of stainless steel. You would think that a wood watch would be really heavy & bulky but my husband and I were both surprised at how light-weight his Sully watch was when he first tried it on. He’s been wearing it to work, in a lab setting, and he loves the way it feels. Plus, he’s gotten compliments on how nice it is & people have loved hearing how it’s made out of wood!
All of the JORD watches are designed to be splash proof but aren’t intended to be completely submerged in water. Since each piece is made out of wood, the grain and color of each watch will vary a bit. Also, if you need to resize one of JORD’s watches, we found a great tutorial online that allowed my husband to take 2 links out of his Sully watch. Dana from Wonder Forest has put together a great tutorial, with LOTS of pictures, that it made it very easy to do. Thanks Dana!
While all of the JORD watches are beautiful, I think my husband did a great job & chose the best watch for him. The colors are amazing together and are definitely eye-catching. The Sully watch retails for $139. I am incredibly happy to tell you that I am giving one of these beautiful watches away too! Enter below on the Rafflecopter to win your own Sully Series Wood Watch in Cherry & Maple, open to US only & GOOD LUCK!
