Just in Time for Mother’s Day: Jord Wood Watches

This post was written by the Experimental Dad.  While a sample was received to facilitate this review, all opinions remain 100% honest.

The Steve Miller Band once stated, “Time keeps on slippin’ into the future.”  But, what is the future of time?  It very well could be a wood watch from Jord, which I recently had the pleasure to review.  I must admit, I am very particular about watches. I don’t like them too big, too small, or too flashy (I usually feel like Goldilocks trying to pick a bed).  However, the “Black” Fieldcrest Series was just right.

I would like to say that there was only one thing that caught my eye when I opened the box, however, there were multiple things.  First was the overall appearance.  Simply put, the watch is beautiful; a black wood grained face (30mm diameter) set on a dark brown bezel (39 mm) and band (20mm) with stainless steel hands.  The finish is of the highest quality, and the color scheme accentuates the grain of the wood perfectly.  The next thing that I noticed was the weight of the watch.  This watch is extremely light, fulfilling Jord’s quest to get back to nature and away from common metal and rubber components that are not very Earth friendly.

Now, the Fieldcrest is not the only style watch that Jord makes.  The website shows 6 different series which can appeal to a variety of tastes for both men and women.  By combining different colors and wood grains from the variety of woods used in making the watches which include bamboo, maple, sandlewood, Blackwood, cherry and teak, each watch is unique.  Plus, the Citizen Miyota movement, used in the Fieldcrest ensures accurate time.

The Fieldcrest, which sells for $120, would make an excellent gift for Mother’s Day, Graduation Day, Father’s Day, birthdays, or for any other occasion that requires a present.  If you don’t have an occasion to give one as a gift for someone else, reward yourself with one—you won’t be disappointed.  Just be prepared for people to ask to see your watch, because in addition to a time piece, it’s a conversation piece.
