JORD Wood Watch Holiday Product Spotlight (And Gift Card Giveaway!)

December 15, 2016

{See the end of this post for information on how to instantly claim a $25 e-gift code from JORD and how to enter to win one (or more) of five $50 JORD gift cards!}

If you know my husband, you know he is picky selective when it comes to his wardrobe and accessories. Man has better style than I do, but that’s never been a secret. While I certainly admire his fashion sense, it can make holiday shopping for him a challenge beyond the standard socks, scotch, and boxer briefs.

Enter JORD Wood Watches.

I admit, when JORD approached me earlier this month about gifting my husband one of their men’s watches in exchange for an honest review, I was a bit hesitant because of said husband’s aforementioned selectivity (and existing watch collection). But then I did a bit of research (i.e., online browsing, my favorite kind of research) and liked what I saw—and so did he! #winning (I know that’s not a thing anymore, but just go with it.)

We chose the Frankie in dark sandalwood and emerald. And first things first, the watch has a pretty cool presentation. This is how it arrived in the mail (great if you’re having it sent to someone—no gift wrap needed):

Second things second, once you open the package, you’ll see the watch is minimal, yet eye-catching; beautiful, yet masculine.

And because I like to repeat myself (particularly since the baby was born): my husband is a well-dressed business professional (look at him typing) with a decent, existing watch collection, and he approves.

Other perks:

One. It’s lightweight (unlike metal band watches) but still feels well-made (read: not cheap).

Two. The band is made out of dark sandalwood from East Africa (Mozambique, to be precise), which is sort of neat.

Three. JORD can engrave the back of the watch and/or the box for you (and, if you hurry, there is still time to do so before Christmas!).

Four. Easy upkeep. The wood band can be maintained with simple lemon or orange extract.

Five. Reasonably priced. This watch retails for $189. JORD has some watches for less, some for more. IMO, it’s a good deal, particularly compared to comparable watches.

The only downside is my husband and I don’t have the same size wrist, otherwise I’d be “borrowing” this. A lot. Just like I borrowed his shirts during pregnancy.

Men’s watches can be shopped here. And since the majority of my readers are women, I’ve linked women’s watches herebecause ’tis the season to shop for yourself in between shopping for everybody else.
