Anyone who knows me, knows that I have a HUGE watch addiction… so much so that I have more watches than I could ever use in a lifetime and I can’t live without a watch on so I even sleep with my watch. I have my favorite brands, my favorite styles and since I’m someone who spends a lot of time in the ocean, I have my Diver’s watches – but I have absolutely fallen in love with a style that is not only timeless, it’s unique. JORD watches are gorgeous wood watches created in different finishes and designs for every lifestyle. Today I am sharing with you the JORD Sully in Black & Maple. This watch has been a favorite of mine for days I want to dress up or those that I chose to be chill and lax.
JORD was derived from the desire for a timepiece that modeled their modern lifestyle. Jord wanted to provide something that was sustainable, efficient, simple and also influenced by experiential living. They wanted their watches to be able to tell more than time by creating a style that was guided by a deep appreciation for natural elements and modern design. Wood is not just a component to each watch, but is the main feature. Each watch is created with an intricacy and multiplicity of woods in the design to insure that each one is as distinctive as the owner. Their methods were to ensure that each watch was not just worn, they were used.
Not only is each watch beautifully crafted, but they are packaged as show stoppers and each come in a gorgeous wooden box. If the box alone didn’t make a statement for you, the watch enclosed within will surely make your jaw drop. I have owned various watches over the years, from many high end brands and I have to say – Jord definitely takes the cake in packaging because I fell in love with the box before I even seen what was included inside.
Each watch ranges in cost between $129 and $295, the most expensive being the Dover which includes Koa wood. That is what attracted me immediately to these watches since Koa is a prized wood here in Hawaii and I had my eyes on the Dover since the first day I heard about Jord. I received the Sully in Black and Maple which is a gorgeous watch with blond and dark wood. The time piece itself is absolutely gorgeous and retailing for just $139 – this watch makes a great gift for anyone (hint – hint, Father’s Day is just a few short weeks away). Each watch is adjustable and if you provide your size to Jord, they can size your watch for you prior to shipping it out your way.
As I mentioned previously, I have the Sully. The Sully series marries complimentary and contrasting woods giving this watch a vivid and varied tonal effect. It has large face numbers and a cut out bezel to add to that playful and sporty look that you can use on a daily basis, but the watch itself is so pretty that this classically styled timepiece can be worn for any and every occasion.
Here are the stats:
Deployment Buckle with Push Button
Stratch Resistant Mineral
Citizen Miyota Quartz Movement (2035)
Case Width: 49mm
Case Thickness: 12mm
Lug Ends: 56mm
Band Length: 214mm
Band Thickness: 25mm
Each JORD watch is designed to be splash proof, but is not intended to be completely submerged in water. Also, due to the nature of the wood chosen for each timepiece, colors and grain patterns may vary from photos. Just like finger prints – while Jord watches a similar series, they have their own little finger print in the wood grain.
What’s great about JORD watches is that these time pieces are made in the United States and made of quality materials. I love that there really is a watch for anyone – any size and style. I picked a large face watch because I’m all about those large watches and I love dressing this watch up or down and it’s perfect for a casual day of lounging.
So – are you a watch addict like me? I am absolutely in love with all of the styles and I’m itching to get a Dover for me and one for my hubby for Father’s Day. He NEVER busy anything for himself and is my biggest supporter of my blog, so my goal is to pick one up for him soon. I adore the Sully and I’m very impressed with how well it was made and how stylish it is. If you are looking for a watch that’s definitely unique and offers you a style all its own – I definitely suggest you check out Jord.
