Jord watch front and back

Let me tell you a little about JORD watches, they are made from different woods from all over the world including bamboo, maple, sandalwood, blackwood, cherry, and teak. The glass is made from scratch-proof blue film glass. The best part is that each one is hand-crafted from natural materials making each one truly unique.

The watch in this post is the Delmar Series in green model. The Delmar comes in five design options at the affordable price of $149 USD.

The watch is really amazing in person and its really all made of wood. I love how unique it is and while the watches are a great size the wood makes them lighter than your average watch. The JORD watches are very wearable and a great conversation piece. These are extremely well made watches and would make a wonderful gift for dad, grad or a groomsmen gift.

To clean your JORD Watch you mix two tablespoons of olive oil and lemon juice and apply the mixture to a cotton cloth and then to the watch. Jord watches are splash proof, meaning they will withstand some water being splashed from a kitchen sink, but they are not designed to be submerged in water.

If you are looking for a gift he won’t forget, head over and check out all the great wood watches available from JORD!

Father’s Day is Sunday! Not to worry Kiehl’s has you covered.

I love to get my dad good skincare products for Father’s Day. If left to his own devices he would be washing his face with Irish Spring. Well Father’s Day is right around the corner but I have a few great items from Kiehl’s that I know any Dad would love.
