“The value of a watch is not in being able to tell how much time has passed, but in being aware of the need to make that time count. Moments are bigger than minutes and your watch should tell more than time.”
Creating timepieces modeled after modern lifestyles, the staff at Jord spends days designing gorgeous wood watches for people that “don’t just have somewhere to go, they have somewhere to be.” Valuing sustainability, efficiency and experimental living, each timepiece is unique and well thought out.
My favorite of their watches is the stunning Ely Red Sandalwood watch. This watch has a classic face plate including scratch-resistant mineral glass. It sports the Citizen Miyota 2035 as the heart and brain of the watch. This watch is made from hand finished natural red sandalwood and is pretreated with tung oils. It is splash proof but should not be submerged fully in water. It’s super easy to clean the wood as well with lemon or orange extract.
The Ely Red Sandalwood watch gets its name from Ely Walker Warehouse, one of the many historic buildings that spans Jord’s hometown of St Louis. The Ely Walker Warehouse has been renovated and turned into gorgeous lofts. Honoring the beautiful building, both the watch and the warehouse stand the test of time with solid construction and classic styling. The red sandalwood has gorgeous tones of red, ranging from a vibrant fluid red to dark shades.
The quality of Jord’s Ely Red Sandalwood watch is dazzling. The feel of the wood is soft and sturdy. The clasp is easy to use and hidden well behind the wood. The color, fading from bright red to dark red, is enough to stand out beautifully. The watch comes in a lovely wooden box, the lid slides off and reveals the beautiful watch that is fastened around a wonderful little pillow. It makes the perfect display case and storage for when you’re not wearing it.
Jord definitely impressed me with their wonderful quality of watch, super fast shipping, and wonderful selection of styles and designs.
