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!
