JORD Wood Watch Review/Giveaway

Disclosure: I received a product to help facilitate the review. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


Best Card Ever (as declared by grandpa)

Grandpa recently had a birthday, and by grandpa, I mean my husband's dad. What do you get a rocking awesome grandpa, like the one we have in our family? The first thing you have to do, and it's a given, is make him a card, because grandpas LOVE homemade cards.

Grandpa loved his Fieldcrest Green Jord Watch
Then you get him a present, but it has to be a really special one, because grandpa deserves to be spoiled on his big day, and you want to do your part.  So, you get him a watch. Not just any watch. A fantastic and very unique watch.

The Jord Watch fits the bill, and then some.  Grandpa is a bona fide, 100% American Indian. His roots are in nature, and we thought he would appreciate a product that is made so purely.  We were right, grandpa loved his watch! We loved it too. This is one of the most unique, well-made watches I've ever seen. The Jord Watch collection is created from wood that is gathered all over the world. There are many selections to choose from, and each of them is very beautifully made.

The Jord Watch has awesome packaging!!
We ordered the Fieldcrest Green (pictured above), which is the same watch one lucky winner can enter to win on the Rafflecopter form below.

The Fieldcrest Green offers Citizen Miyota movements, stainless steel hands, and it has a beautiful wood band, back, and face.  Remember when you get yours, that because they are all individually made and wood grain varies, not all watches look exactly the same.

The face of this watch is hardened and has scratch-proof glass. The band width is 20mm, the frame is 39mm in diameter, and the lug ends are 45mm.  There is a single action stainless steel clasp on the band. This particular watch retails for $120 on the Jord website.

We loved the watch we received to review, and have only really good things to say about it.  From the packaging, to the look, to the high quality craftsmanship, we think the JORD watch, the world's first mechanically driven wood watch, is a complete winner.

You can learn more about these great watches by visiting the Jord website.
You can also follow along on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram.

This giveaway is open worldwide.
