My Favorite Accessory: A Watch by JORD
So I’ll be honest, I’m normally an Apple Watch person. But I’ll also be the first to admit that the Apple Watch is not the cutest accessory– an opinion I’ve maintained since launch.
When the folks at Jord Watches reached out to me with a collaboration opportunity, I was intrigued. I thought that a cute, stylish timepiece would be a great addition to my wardrobe for elevating an outfit… and also for those days when I don’t feel like wearing the same watch as literally all my coworkers.
Keep reading to see my full review of my new Jord watch! There’s also a fun giveaway at the end!

Jord Wood Watch Review + Giveaway!
Who is Jord?
I’ve actually never heard of this company until they reached out to me, so I’ll give you some background info just in case you haven’t either:
- Founded in 2013, Jord (pronounced “Yode”) is a wooden watch company based in St. Louis.
- The watches are are a sophisticated mix of natural, and largely re-claimed materials, combined with quality movements and components. A few examples of the wood options are bamboo, ebony, maple, rosewood, and sandalwood.
- Watches can be sized specifically for your wrist, and you can always order additional watch links or have some removed to customize your fit. You can also get custom engraving on most backplates.
- Each watch comes with a one year warranty, with additional options for returns and exchanges.
- Free standard worldwide shipping is available.
Shipping & Unboxing
I live near Nashville– pretty close to St. Louis. So I received my watch quite quickly; I believe it was within 48 hours of making a selection. Despite the close proximity, I really wasn’t expecting to receive my watch that quickly! If you opt to receive custom engraving on your watch, it may take up to five business days for Jord to process and ship your order.
The watch came beautifully packaged inside a box and on a small pillow. There was a film over the watch face and backplate to prevent scratches while in transit. I also received their Jode Preserve cleaning oil; a custom-formulated oil specifically designed for the care and maintenance of wood watches.
Wearing My Jord Wooden Watch
I chose a watch from their Cassia series. I was drawn to this particular series because it features each Roman numeral while maintaining a minimalist design. I personally prefer watches with all of the numbers so there’s no guesswork involved in telling the time. I also knew the ebony wood and sable face would complement my wardrobe, which contains a lot of neutrals and muted colors.
I did provide a custom size for my watch; however, when I received the watch it did seem a little big on my wrist. But aside from a little bit of sliding, it wasn’t noticeable. And I definitely prefer that as opposed to it being too tight or uncomfortable throughout the day!
The watch is easy to put on and undo with one hand; there is a snapping mechanism that secures the band. The wooden links are soft and comfortable. It is not painful or annoying when my wrist is lying flat on a hard surface and I find it easy to type while wearing it.
Jord watches are water-resistant, so you don’t have to worry about daily tasks such as washing your hands as long as the crown is locked.
And just so you know, I wear all watches on my left hand, which is my non-dominant hand. I cannot handle wearing a watch on the same hand I write with.
