Giveaway & Watch Review : JORD Wood Watch Delmar

Watches are not just timekeepers; 
Watches are statement pieces, 
Watches speak to the style and personality of the wearer. 
JORD watches tell more than time.

It is safe to say that I have never been accustomed to hand-crafted wood time pieces, until JORD came along. JORD, from St.Louis complements authentic wood with the watch that speaks to modern accessory and fits to one's lifestyle, be it fun or formal.

Styling with JORD
The DELMAR series is inspired from the Delmar Loop, St. Louis which prides on this district's inclusive nature that makes one feels like home, celebrating individuality regardless of one's culture or clique.

DELMAR stood out for me for its quality woven patterned, tuxedo white carbon fiber display. I chose the Red Sandalwood because I was visually drawn by its maroon tone. The frame and straps are meticulously hand crafted with natural red sandalwood and pretreated with tung oils (or China wood oil, which makes the watch splash proof)  

Bro Tips : DELMAR comes in a selection of Bamboo, Green Sandalwood, and Dark Sandalwood as well.

The JORD watch packaging comes along with a beautifully crafted wooden box (an impeccable accessory on its own), the wood watch clutched to a dainty pillow, additional wooden links for the strap, standard instructions and a one-year warranty card.

Unboxing the JORD watch.
Upon placing order for your watch, you will be given an option for sizing the watch to fit your wrist perfectly, otherwise fret not as forgiving additional links allow you to size the watch to your liking. I channeled the inner watch-smith in me when I had to resize the strap at home (impressed by the fact I skipped the trip to the local jeweller with my uncanny attention to delicate details towards this luxury watch).

Stylish wear piece
Magnifying to the watch's fine details, the J for JORD is prominently found on the clip of the watch, the back of the watch and the crown to adjust the time needle. That being said, branding at its best crafted meticulously and instantly recognizable when worn (am not complaining either when people do ask about the watch, and by showing them up close, I let the watch itself do all the talking).
