I received a JORD Wood Watch to facilitate this review. I was not financially compensated for this post. My opinions are my own and not by any means influenced by any other part.
When it comes to watches, I am very particular and it is really hard for me to get a time piece that actually works for me. I really do not like it when I need to replace my watch which was the case recently….Have you heard of Jord Wood Watches? JORD is run by artists, designers, marketers, and minders. Their designs are one of a kind beautifully crafted time pieces that would change the way you see time.
JORD Wood Watches has a wide selection of wood watches and that includes both men’s and women’s designs that would be perfect for this holiday season including the smashing Zebrawood and Turquoise watch which is part of the women’s Cora Series collection.
Wood Watches by JORD
Zebrawood and Turquoise watch This watch is the best looking watch I have seen in a long time and features a sapphire crystal glass, deployment buckle with push button, and Swarovski crystal markers that complete the astonishing look on these wood watches. The color combination on these wood watches is simply amazing…The rich browns on the Zebrawood with the turquoise on the watch face, coupled with the gold markers with the Swarovski crystals on them is really beautiful.
The watch is designed so there is a small cutout circle at the bottom left hand side of the watch that lets you see part of the watch’s internal operating mechanism and the back of the watch is actually glass so you can see the guts of the watch…Really neat! The Zebrawood Cora Series is not only available in the turquoise finish. They also offer this beautiful watch in 4 additional colors to match your needs and personality!
The watch is pre-treated with tung oils and while the watch is splash –proof, it is not to be submerged in water. The Zebrawood and Turquoise watch from the Cora Series collection, is lightweight and very comfortable to wear and the size is just right, not too big, and not too small. JORD wood watches now offers you free sizing…All you need to do is take the measurement of your wrist and add it to your order and they will size the watch for you!
One other thing I really liked was the watch’s presentation as it arrived in a wooden box with the JORD name branded that is really nice and can be used to keep your watch in when not in use or can double as a small jewelry box…So your watch arrives pretty much ready for gift giving.
One thing to know about this watch is that it is actually self-winding and it is a little tricky to set the time on the Cora watch …I visited their site and used the chat app on the Jord website and had a conversation with Daniel…. This was the best customer service experience I’ve had in a long time!
He was awesome and explained to me how to do so:
So the piece that you use to set the time is called the crown. Normally, you just pull the crown out and turn it to set the time. This watch has what is called a “screw-down” crown. This means that before you can pull the crown out to set the time, you must unscrew it.
1. Turn the crown counter-clockwise until it pops (this means that it’s been unscrewed from the threads)
2. At this stage, if you turn the crown clock-wise, it will wind the watch (if your watch is dead or is new, I would suggest turning the crown 20 times clockwise to get it wound).
3. if you pull the crown out further, this is how you set the time (by turning the crown either direction) 4. Once you are done, push the crown all the way in and turn clock-wise (while pushing it it).
The goal is to get the crown to catch on the threads and screw back in. The screw-down crown feature is generally reserved for higher end watches. It prevents dust from getting into the internals (just a fun fact for ya 🙂
The watch’s presentation is great as it arrived in a wooden box with the JORD name branded that is really nice and can be used to keep your watch in when not in use or can double as a small jewelry box…So your watch arrives pretty much ready for gift giving.
The Zebrawood and Turquoise watch from the women’s Cora Series has a retail price of $275.00 and it is one of the many options available on the JORD website which of course also offers a wide selection of men’s designs for the Holidays!
