Every day for one week I saw the same woman walk through the door of my neighborhood coffee shop. She’d walk in, always in a rush, ordering the same thing, a Spiced Honey Latte. She was a fashionable woman indeed. With her handmade cable knit sweater and her designer jeans. Walking about in her beautiful leather riding boots. Who was this girl?

As she waited for her latte, she looked at her watch, a wood watch, with ever so growing impatience. Several times she looked at the watch. It was a beautifully crafted watch made from natural zebra wood and maple. Where did she get this spectacular timepiece? I needed to know.

I watched as she retrieved her latte from the barista. She was left with the task of finding a table at a very popular coffee shop on a busy day. Finally she found a spot. A table next to mine.
As she settled down, removing her laptop from her orange leather tote, getting her workspace situated, I got another peek at her unique watch. So fly. I must know where it’s from. I’m obsessed.

I took advantage of a slight glance to ask. She expressed much gratitude for the compliment about her exquisite timepiece. It was a Wood Watch by Jord. She received it as a gift from her ex-boyfriend who always complained about her always being late. They are no longer a pair. We chuckled.

I thanked her for the information, she smiled and went back to her work. I immediately went to www.woodwatch.com to get more information about this watch. I was in love with. Upon entering the website, I was happy to see that there was a giveaway currently going on. The winner would receive a $75 JORD e gift code, and anyone who enters would receive a $20 JORD e gift code! Nice! The contest closes 12/17/16 at 11:59pm. Both the $75 and the $20 codes will expire on 2/28/17.

I entered my information and continued to shop. She was wearing  a women’s watch from the Fieldcrest Series in Zebrawood & Maple. Not only is it a beautiful watch, its features are pretty awesome too!

Wooden Wristwatch


  1. I’ve seen these Jord Watches floating around the blogosphere lately…but this is the first up close pictures and write up I have read! They are really nice! I love the wood detail!

  2. Love this watch. I collect watches so I am always looking for something unique to add to the collection. This fits the bill! Can you tell me…does it hold up well when it gets wet? I won’t shower with it or anything, but I’m more concerned about splashing it by accident.

  3. I love watches. Someday I want to have a fancy collection. This watch just made my “Someday” list. Thanks for sharing. You better believe I’m entering the giveaway. Maybe my “someday” can start early.

  4. I really need to step up my watch game since I rely exclusively on my phone (smh at myself). I love how it seamlessly matches so many outfits I have in my head since I have been obsessed with neutrals lately.

  5. I have a Jord watch and I absolutely love it! People ask about it all the time, so it’s no wonder you noticed the customer’s watch. I love this one you have featured here – neutral and can go with just about everything. Dress it up or dress it down.

  6. These watches are absolutely gorgeous. I’ve been seeing this name more lately, but I thought that they only were made for men. So excited that I may have chance to join in on the fun!

  7. Great post, Shana. I first heard of Jord watches from fellow blogger Tanya Barnett. These watches are beautiful, unique, and a little sexy. 😀 I think I’m getting two — one for my hubby and one for me. 😀

  8. I have seriously fallen in love with these watches over the last couple of months. They’re so stunning and unique. Definitely thinking of buying one for a gift. Off to enter the giveaway…what a great way to get such a beautiful piece of art.
