I recently read an article that stated wrist watches were still very popular in-spite of mobile devices providing access to time. Along with added convenience, watches are a smart accessory. For this reason the world can rest assured that this practical adornment will always be an essential staple. It's also for this reason that our chosen watch be reflective of who we are, or what we want to represent.
Add a touch of class to your wrist
Several years ago I noticed a trend in wooden watches popping up on the wrists of the rich and famous. Of course these newer styles outshine their older, rudimentary counterparts. One of the top companies producing some of the finest modern wooden watches is Jord. These watches emanate class.
I was very fortunate to receive a Jord watch to review. Because there is more happiness in giving than receiving I chose a style for my brother because I wanted to give him something truly special. I chose a more masculine style so that I wouldn't be tempted to keep it for myself. This proved to be a very wise move;)
|Sully Series black & Maple|
I chose the Sully Black & Maple Watch. As you can see the watch arrived encased in a lovely gift box so it was ready to be given as a gift, The quality of the watch is extraordinary. It has this very high-end look and could very easily be mistaken for a more expensive watch showcased at an upscale store like Bergdorf Goodman. This contrasts with many wooden watches that I've seen in that they tend to have a more earthy, casual look.
Some features from the Sully Series include:
Hardened, Scratch-proof glass face: 33mm diameter
Single action locking clasp (stainless steel)
3-hand Citizen Miyota Quarts movement
Clasp is discreet and very easy to take on and off
Adjustable (requires removal of links) recommended to be done by a jeweler
Jord selection of watches appeal to both environmentalist and the fashion savvy
The pièce de résistance of Jord watches is its unique craftsmanship along with the materials. Each watch is finely crafted using sustainable woods from around the world, some of which include: Maple, Koa, Zebrawood, and Sandalwood. Because of slight variations in the wood, no two watches are exactly alike. So they are truly one-of-a- kind.
These watches are splash resistant, but they are still wood, so this means no swimming while wearing your Jord watch.
