*Editor’s Note: I was sent this product in exchange for an honest review.
JORD Wood Watches reached out to me to see if I would be interested in reviewing their unique wood watches. Because I value my readers and want to always provide real information, I expressed to JORD that I don’t personally wear watches, but my best friend Jerry does. JORD graciously agreed to send me a cool men’s watch for Jerry to wear and give me his feedback on.
Jerry went through their online store and picked the style and color of the watch he wanted. It was actually a difficult decision because they have so many beautiful products. Jerry chose the FRANKIE series Zebrawood & Navy.
When Jerry opened the watch we were both surprised at how much effort went into the packaging. JORD really went the extra mile to make sure their product was safe and arrived in style. Jerry’s watch is gorgeous! His watch is a Swiss Ronda Normtech Caliber 763. The movement is one of Citizen’s top of the line and is normally used in watches that can cost well over $1,000. Those watches are typically made of gold or silver and have jewels in them. Wood, as it turns out, is a lot less expensive than most precious metals, but provides a unique look! He had to go to several watch places to get it sized and everyone told him that the watch was gorgeous and they never had seen one like it.
When researching information about his watch on the JORD website, we both found it interesting that the zebrawood his watch is made from is native to West Africa (Congo) and is considered a luxury hardwood. Their website says that zebrawood trees are typically 80 ft tall! Also, the glass on his watch is sapphire glass which is known in the luxury watch world as the definitive material for transparency and durability. What that means to us is that it isn’t going to scratch.
