Watches for women can be a fickle thing. Well, at least for me they are. I'm not much of a jewelry kinda gal, so when I do choose to wear something on my arms, I'm ultra picky. I always tend to bypass watches because they're either too bulky, too boring looking, or just flat out ugly. Recently, I've noticed that a lot of my favorite bloggers have been showing off their JORD Wood Watches, and it totally piqued my interest. It was such a cool concept! So naturally, when the people behind JORD reached out to me to see if I'd be interested in trying out one of their watches, I was all like, "YASSSS!"

The watch I received was the Ely Green Sandalwood + Maple watch, which retails for $129. Like the name mentions, this watch is made with natural green sandalwood and maple, and is hand finished and pretreated with tung oils. This may be silly to admit, but I was kind of worried about getting splinters from a wood watch. I know, I know. These watches are super smooth to the touch, and sit comfortably on the wrist. I love the different tones of wood in this watch. It definitely makes for a super unique timepiece and is something I can proudly wear on my wrists.

Generally with watches, I find that they overwhelm me. And by overwhelm me, I mean they just seem like they're taking up a lot of real estate on my wrists. I'm a short, petite person, so chunky jewelry and watches are a lot for my frame. Even though I do find that this watch is a bit on the chunkier side, I also found that pairing the watch with dainty jewelry really complements my outfits and looks pretty damn cool as opposed to looking overdone. No complaints here.

And PS- these watches are water resistant. So no worries if your watch comes in contact with water. As long as you don't submerge your watch under water for long periods of time, you'll be good. So don't scuba dive with this watch on. Probably isn't a smart idea.

Anyway, I am really impressed by the quality and luxurious feel of these watches. I'm totally on board with this wooden watch thing. Best part of all? You too can own one of these awesome and luxurious wooden watches! If you use coupon code brikasia by September 14th, you'll get 10% off your order! Hurray!! Wooden watches for everybody!

  8. These are great watches. I got one of the early models but would love one that's a lighter wood and a tad smaller now.

  9. I love your photos first and foremost! I have this watch in koa, too bad it's a tad tight so I brought it to watch repair shop to reattach the links. Owner does not want to fool w/ it because it's made of koa wood (pricey and sough after wood) so it's sitting here, ugh

  11. I think that watch is definitely the perfect size for your dainty wrist. I love my watch and have been a fan of it that I bought another for my hubs. We are watch people - my mom put a watch on my wrist when I was 2 years old and I sleep with mine on... can't live without it. I am glad to have it as a part of my collection, because I own an extensive collection but never had a wood one. :D
