From bold colors and classic leather, to digital and intricate dials, watch styles are ever-changing. Now the latest trend in watches is wood! I’ve seen wooden watches pop up more and more which is why I was so excited to have the opportunity to try one out from JORD Wood Watches. Here are my thoughts…and spoiler alert…there’s a giveaway at the end!
The watch I tried was in the color, Dark Sandalwood & Slate, which has a beautiful grey face with rose gold accents. I went with the smaller size but it is also available with a larger watch face, if that’s more your style.
All of the JORD wood watches are hand crafted from different types of natural wood. The wood is pretreated so it is splash proof, but not waterproof (the only downside if that’s a deal breaker for you). But they use sapphire glass, which is actually a synthetic crystal rather than actual glass, making it the 2nd hardest and most scratch resistant materials, next to diamond (mind blown). So it’s definitely durable and with most of the watches powered by Swiss Movement it can fall into the luxury watch category.

Aside from falling in love with the wooden watch trend, I found myself really impressed by this company! They’re packaging is also made of wood and unique to each watch, it’s obvious they really take the time to make each and every order special. So if you’re looking for some gifts ideas, definitely check out both their women’s watches and men’s watches.

Moments are bigger than minutes and your watch should tell more than time.
