JORD - DOVER Zebrawood and Dark Sandalwood Watch

*We received a complimentary JORD watch to feature in this post. As always, all opinions are our own.

JORD (pronounced as 'YODE') are known for their wood watches. Their watches are not just timepieces but rather pieces of art that also carry values of sustainability and experiential living. Each watch that JORD makes is a beautiful mix of functionality and style. So, when JORD reached out to us, we knew instantly that we would love to partner with them. And so today, I am sharing with you our thoughts on JORD and the Dover Zebrawood & Dark Sandalwood Watch that we received.

And there is also a giveaway for our readers, so read on till the very end!

JORD make hand-crafted wooden timepieces. According to them, they are

focused on creating timepieces that are modelled after a modern lifestyle.

The first thing to catch our attention was the craftsmanship. One look at the watch and you can tell that a great deal of effort and thought has gone into the making of the watch. It is a unique timepiece that is sure to last a lifetime. Because it makes use of wood, each watch is one-of-a-kind because no two trees are the same! And the source of the wood used in the watches also varies with some coming from furniture remnants while some from trees that have fallen naturally.

The watch we received, Dover, makes use of two different types of wood:

  • Zebrawood - A luxury hardwood that is native to West Africa and offers a striking grain contrast and exceptional finish.
  • Sandalwood - Known for its fragrance, JORD uses various species of sandalwood in varying colour tones.

Both the zebrawood and dark sandalwood are hand finished and have been pre-treated with tung oils. The Dover watch is also splash-proof (but please note that you should not submerge it in water (3 ATM)).

Keeping your JORD watch safe

Along with your JORD watch, you also receive a collector’s edition humidor cedar watch box to keep your watch protected when not in use. The box includes a cleaning cloth, and a small supply of 'JORD Preserve' which is a custom-formulated wood treatment gel with applicator pen. This helps to protect the wood band of the watch keeping it in good condition for years to come.

Customising your JORD watch

The watch is a beautiful piece – stylish, incredibly light, is comfortable to wear and a conversation starter. Overall, both I and Mr.H have been impressed with the JORD watch. If you are looking for something different to gift to someone special, JORD watches would be an excellent idea.

And did you know that you can even customise your watch. Both back plate engraving and presentation box engraving are available. You can also upload custom designs and your handwriting or imagery will then be precision laser engraved onto the watch or the box, making your gift truly one-of-a-kind.
