“They’re really cool, but I don’t know if it’s something I need.”
That was always my reply when asked if I was interested in a wood watch. They seemed to become very trendy in 2014, but for some reason I never jumped on the bandwagon. I know what you’re thinking… I’m from Miami, and everyone here LOVES to jump on the bandwagon, except I’m not one of them. Do you think I cried when Lebron went back home? Or when Wade decided to play for Chicago? Ok, I did actually, but so what? Real men cry!
The point is here we are, 2 years later and I’m proudly wearing my first wood watch by Jord. First impressions are everything, and they did not disappoint. The watch case was made of a light colored wood, and when I opened it I was pleased to find the watch wrapped around it’s own hounds tooth print watch pillow, these stunning details really made me fall in love with this company. It’s the little things that make the biggest impact.
My first thought when it came to wood watches, was that there would be some weight to it, not true,this watch is like a feather. It floats like a butterfly and stings like a…you know what I mean. It’s so light, that at times I forget that it’s still on. One major concern I had when considering wood watches, was how it would react to the elements, but rest assured, they treat each component with tung oil to protect the grain from everyday wear. With that said, you should avoid certain activities, such as challenging Michael Phelps to a race, because
1. You’ll lose.
2. Submerging the timepiece may cause damage.
I also love that Jord features self-winding automatics ( manual) meaning they do not require a battery. However, my favorite Jord design detail is that most of their timepieces have a gallery where you can see the inner workings of the watch, and this one just so happens have it right inside the dial. I really can go on and on about it, but I want to get to the good part! I’m sure some of you noticed, a couple of days ago, I hit 20,000 followers on Instagram.
