{Review} JORD Wood Watches ~ Ely Series

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received a complimentary sample of one or more of the products or services mentioned below in the hope that I would mention it on my blog. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and/ or believe will be good for my readers. In some cases, an affiliate link has been applied. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255: "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising."

Details: It’s about time someone delivered an unconventional answer to age-old wrist candy. JORD watches are designed to take people back to nature and away from today’s metal & rubber. They want to challenge the norm by making unique time pieces as a focal point for everyday fashion.

Ely Series: Elegant, small-face design. This is that kind of watch that makes you grin for no apparent reason. Light, sexy, and compact design makes this a popular, everyday watch. There are no numbers on this watch other than the date (but we’ll assume you already know how to tell time).

MSRP: $129

Personal Experience: I’ll admit, I saw other bloggers writing about and discussing these beautiful wooden watches and I was intrigued. I wanted to learn more. I wanted to see them for myself. I am so fortunate that JORD watches agreed to give me the opportunity! I chose to review the Ely Series watch in Natural Green.

I was very impressed with the care taken in shipping and the overall packaging of the watch. The watch box was carefully wrapped in bubble wrap and placed inside a larger box. The decorative product box arrived in perfect condition… ready for gifting. The watch sits inside; wrapped around a satiny pillow emblazoned with the JORD name. They even included a wooden coin tag with the company logo. Overall, a nice presentation.


Above you can get a sneak peek at the clasp. I don’t understand why this clasp baffled me so much at first! Once I figured out how simple it really was, I had a little eye-roll at myself and finally got down to enjoying the watch.

I love the wood grain. It means that each piece will be unique and not a cookie-cutter, everyday watch. Even the face of the watch gets the wood grain treatment. It’s just a beautiful piece. I fond it ideal for summer weather, because I often wear a lot more wooden and natural jewelry in the summer.

I was amazed by how light-weight it is for being made of wood. I was caught between finding this a good thing and a bad thing. On one hand, it is nice to not feel weighed down by my watch. I’d often forget I was wearing it. On the other hand, it can be all to easy to associate lightweight with cheap. Wearing it has proven the durability, though.

I love to wear watches and jewelry, but I also live my life with some abandon when it comes to jewelry. The scratch-proof glass face is perfect for those of us that tend to be a bit rough on our jewelry. Even after getting caught in unexpected downpours, tackling yet another stink diaper, forgetting I’m wearing it as I prep bubbling spaghetti sauce for dinner, and all the daily battering that a watch can take; my watch looks as good as the day it arrived.


Overall, I think it a great addition to any wardrobe… male or female. It’s something with adding to your gift list and your wishlist!

Pros: Beautiful and unique. Lightweight yet durable. Comfortable for all day wear. Giftable packaging.

Cons: The lightweight feel could be make this seem cheap, but the durability will speak for itself.

  1. Aren’t wood watches kinda heavy though?

    • These are very lightweight and easy to wear. I would forget I was wearing it.

  2. I’ve seen so many great reviews about these watches. They look really neat and something I think my husband would find really unique. I find it really cool that they are made of wood.
