Being a country girl, I have a bit of passion for natural fashion. You know things that aren’t as full of glitz and glam. Although, don’t get my wrong I absolutely love shinny jewelry! It’s so hypnotizing and beautiful! But sometimes I like pieces that are a bit more down to earth. That’s why I love JORD Wood watches! If you are a purist of fashion, a country girl or just looking for a great piece for a guy, the wood watches are perfect!
Universal Fashion with JORD Wood Watches
JORD wood watches are hand crafted from 100% natural wood. And come in a variety of styles and stains. I loved the look of the Ely Maple wood watch. It is a nice natural look to fit my country girl style. But it also is an excellent choice for Men too since it isn’t full of frills. it also comes in a natural green and maple, cherry and black if you are looking for a darker color. The Ely series tells both time and date. Though setting the date isn’t as easy as I’d like. Normally with watches, you can pull out the setting dial, and the first setting does the date and the second controls the time. Well, sadly that isn’t the case. To change the date you have to manually wind the time over and over again to rotate through the dates.
Setting the date the first time took quite a bit of winding as it was 1 week off from the day it arrived. Then changing February to March again, as I had to manually wind through 3 extra days due to February being so short.
But the issue with the date being a pain to set, that is the only downside to this wood watch! I personally love how it is so versatile between a man’s watch and a woman’s watch. It is fashionable for both and blends easily with most day to day outfits. Especially when my husband wears his earth toned green shirt and jeans. Perfect look for this wood watch!
And you don’t have to worry about the metal band pinching or pulling out arm hairs like many other inferior watches do. The clasp to fasten the watch is super easy to open and close with one hand, and is easy to put on or take off, no matter which hand you use.
And features a 26mm diameter hardened, scratch-proof glass face. And while the watch is splash proof; it isn’t submersible. It merely means if you splash a drop or two while washing your hands it will be OK. But you don’t want to be wearing it while washing dishes or going swimming.
Overall we have really been impressed with the JORD Wood Watches.
