One Very Cool Watch, And One For You Too!

I receive offers and requests to review and/or promote various products on an almost daily basis. Most of them are products or styles that I wouldn’t wear myself or recommend or that I don’t think would be of interest to you, so I don’t share them here. I’m not going to lie; when I first received an email inviting me to review a line of wood watches, the idea sounded a bit, well…hokey. But I finally did check out JORD Wood Watches, and my jaw dropped just a little. NOT hokey. The designs are clean and modern, and really showcase the beauty of the different woods. I agreed to try this “Fieldcrest” style in Maple which I thought would be a nice watch for summer, and it is!

The band, watch face and outside case of the “works” are all wood (maple in this case). The clasp and mechanics are metal. When I took the watch into the jewelry repair store to get the band adjusted (have to do this will all of my watches as I have a very small wrist) everyone there was really impressed with the workmanship and look of the watch. It’s SO light to wear! While it is a little bulkier than my thinnest metal watch, I hardly notice that I have it on. If a heavy metal watch is too warm for you to wear in the summer, this is not only lighter but cooler too. The clasp is a “double” closure that opens with button mechanism. The wood is so pretty, and this color is perfect for lighter summer outfits.

Most of the styles are unisex. Bands can be adjusted like any other watch band, and yes the case opens for battery replacement. I’m told that it probably should not be worn swimming, but otherwise for day-to-day wear is water-resistant.

I haven’t done a giveaway in a long time, so am very excited to be able to offer one of these watches in the same style as mine, provided by JORD Wood Watches. You’re going to love it! So you may be familiar with this new giveaway widget, but if not, here’s how it works: for each of the steps listed below you complete (e.g. Like “JORD Wood Watches” on Facebook, share on Twitter, etc.) you’ll receive an entry. If you don’t FB or Tweet don’t worry, those aren’t mandatory, but the more you do, the more entries and chances you’ll have to win. (But you must at least leave a comment to be entered. Reminder: if you’ve never commented before or are using a different email, your comment will go into the moderation queue. Don’t worry, you’ll be entered. I do my best to moderate comments regularly, but please give your comment a few hours to show up.) We’ll keep entries open for 1 week, and a winner will be announced within a day or so after that. C’est tout!

    Love this watch! If it’s open to international readers, please count me in – the only problem being that I suspect my husband will love it too, so I would need to get it altered for my small wrist before he got his hands on it!

  22. Melanie

    I just recently went back to wearing watches. I had relied on my phone the past few years, but found myself wistful for wearing one again when I saw a great piece on a friend’s wrist. The wood watch is terrific. What an unusual idea!

  39. Sara
    June 25, 2014 / 9:10 am

  48. MJ

    Love the watch. And I just misplaced another watch (the Michael Kors I bought after seeing you wearing it – is there a pattern here?). While I’m sure I’ll eventually find the misplaced watch, I’d love to have the wood for summer.

  49. June 25, 2014 / 1:12 pm

    Pseu, I don’t think I’ve ever entered one of your giveaways, but I love this clean design, not too formal or “madame” for my taste.

    I avoid facebook and twitter (even LinkedIn, for strictly professional reasons, is invasive) so all I can do is enter with my e-mail.

    Bonne journée!

  53. June 25, 2014 / 5:01 pm

    Ooh, I have been thinking that my Seiko is too hot to wear now that the weather has gotten humid here on the East coast. Love the idea of a wood watch, especially for summer!

    I was actually looking at wooden watches recently and liked the concept.

  58. June 25, 2014 / 7:23 pm

    I LOVE wood watches! I’ve already bought one for my son, and talked my daughter into getting one for herself. She gets so many great comments and loves hers! Yet, I’ve never bought one for myself, so now’s the time!

    I actually saw a wood watch years ago and was intrigued by it. Design wise I really like the wood for summer and Autumn but I love that it is a natural material. It would be fun to wear one – the maple looks lovely. Thanks for sharing this!
