It’s hard to believe it, but Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching! So, if you’re stumped on what to get that special someone in your life look no further, as JORD wooden watches have got you covered. This was the perfect option as an early Valentine’s Day gift for my boyfriend, Jason, as he had been wanting to get himself a watch to wear for night’s out and special events. I am also thrilled to announce that I am doing a GIVEAWAY, so make sure to check out the end of this post on how to enter!
Founded in 2013, JORD wooden watches are hand-crafted from raw materials, making each timepiece unique and also making it a great, sustainable option. And as long as you take proper care of your watch, it is capable of standing the test of time (come on, I had to get one ‘time’ pun in here somewhere!).
Jason ended up picking out the exact watch I would have chose for him, which is their Hyde watch in Ebony & Iron*. The natural ebony, which is hand-finished and pretreated with tung oils to finish and protect the wood, is so beautiful and gives the watch such a sleek, classic look. Jason loves the minimalist face on it, and the fact that he can easily pair it with jeans and a t-shirt (aka his daily uniform) or with more formal attire.
The one thing I definitely can rave about in terms of JORD wooden watches is their attention to detail. The watch comes housed in a wonderful handcrafted box, which I actually think Jason loved just as much as the watch itself! The hands on this watch are metal tipped and the face is protected by sapphire crystal glass. I love the couple pops of red on the face of the watch, as it brings the perfect amount of colour to this otherwise dark timepiece and it ties in with the subtle red that runs throughout the wood. This watch also uses a deployment buckle with push buttons, so you can take the watch off just as easily as you can put it on. Along with the Ebony & Iron, the Hyde series also comes in Walnut & Black and Kosso & Gray. To see the rest of the collection, you can view their men’s watches here and their women’s watches here.
JORD also offers personalized engravings on either the backplate of your watch or on the cedar box it comes in to make your gift that much more special. I chose to keep my engraving simple and opted for just my boyfriend’s initials (and yes, he shares the same initials as his favourite Tennessee whiskey). Check out their watch engraving page here for more information, and if you’re in need of some engraving inspo JORD also has a Pinterest page.
JORD wooden watches range from $139 to up to $495, and all watches come with a 1-year warranty, and JORD also offers free shipping worldwide. You also receive a JORD cleaning cloth to keep the watch’s face clean, as well as their 100% natural preserve cleaning oil and JORD polishing cloth to keep your timepiece clean and conditioned.
Now, onto the GIVEAWAY portion! I’ve teamed up with JORD to give one lucky winner $100 to use towards a beautiful JORD wooden watch of their own!

What do you think of these JORD wooden watches? Personally, I’m thinking about getting one of their Cassia watches for myself this Valentine’s Day!
