This is a sponsored review.
Every year we have come across a vast variety of watch brands to review and test. Some for men, some kids, but none of them stuck out to me personally for a woman. That is until I was scrolling through the Jord wood watch website and saw “Cora Series”. I love the darker wood variants and the almost blue-green watch face.
Let me give you a little back story on me and watches though because this may interest you if you have the same issues and are looking at purchasing a new watch. I can not stand anything on my wrists. Bracelets, hair bands, even those ER wristbands. They just feel constricting and uncomfortable. So a watch, Fitbit, or anything of the sort is out of the question. I have tried, believe me, but nothing has sold me.
What made me choose Jord was that I recently was accepted to a Nursing school and knew I would need a good watch, especially one with a minute/second hand to count with. I figured now would be the chance to try it out and get used to the weight on my arm before starting in January.
When my watch arrived in a beautiful box, even my daughters let out a gasp when opening and seeing this gorgeous wood watch inside. I took a few photos and looked at everything included but put it to the side until a couple days later. That day, I dressed up, put on the watch and went to my school walkthrough. I knew it would be a few hours and I needed to try and see how I did.
Fast forward to when I was home that evening cooking dinner and my husband remarked that I had been wearing my new watch. I looked down because…I had forgotten! This watch is so lightweight that I had actually forgotten it was even on my wrist! I was dumbfounded to be quite honest. I could not believe I went the whole day, driving, walking, caring for my daily activities and for someone who has a wrist anxiety, had found a watch that I could live with.
Here are some details about my Zebrawood & Tourquise Jord Watch:
- sapphire crystal glass
- deployment buckle with push button
- swarovski crystal markers
- display: hours – minutes – seconds
- jewel bearing: 21 jewels
- power reserve: 36 hours
- frequency: 21,600 BPH (beats per hour)
- accuracy: +/- 3 seconds /day
- drive system: self-winding automatic (requires no battery)
- splash-proof but should not be submerged in water (3 ATM)
Going into a profession where I will need a reliable watch, I am glad to have chosen the Cora Series for its drive system as well. I would hate to have to worry about getting a battery in the middle of a shift (or really anytime). Also, using earth natural resources to create a unique timepiece does make my heart pitter patter a bit.
Jord watches do come with a 1-year warranty, however, should I need any repairs outside of that time frame, they do offer a service for a small fee. That is great to know that even in 3-4 years, I can trust they will be able to repair any damage I may have and already know the watch and its pieces. This is actually how luxury purse brands handle their products and if you are paying the same amount or less for a luxury watch, I would expect no less. In fact, I am thankful for the piece of mind. (Obviously, you should take care of your watch by cleaning and condition/oil it regularly or as needed).
The value of a watch is not in being able to tell how much time has passed, but in being aware of the need to make that time count. Moments are bigger than minutes and your watch should tell more than time
