Jord provided me with a complimentary wood watch in exchange for sharing a review on my blog, but all opinions expressed here are my own (honestly!).
I get emails from publicists fairly regularly asking if I’d like a free product in exchange for a review, but I rarely take them up on it. First of all, I like to make sure this blog isn’t overly spammy. But honestly, I don’t much like to talk about products I’m not genuinely excited about, especially because it can be a fair amount of work to create sponsored content. But when Jord reached out to ask if I’d like to try one of their wood watches, I was immediately in love.
Seriously, how beautiful is this thing? It’s 100% my style, and I love how it’s classy enough to dress up for formal office attire but hip enough that it works with jeans and a tee. Before shipping it to me, they even asked me to measure my wrist so they could custom design the band to fit me. This is no small detail, because I usually avoid wearing watches or bracelets since my small wrists and hands mean they often flop around or even fall out.
It was clear from the moment I pulled it out of the box that it was a true piece of craftsmanship – you should have heard how my lady coworkers ooed and aahed. And although I’m not normally much of a watch wearer (who needs to be with smartphones, right?), this Jord wood watch is more of a piece of jewelry than a purely functional device.
Do you ever wear watches with your outfits? What do you guys think of my new Jord watch?
