My dad has been into wood working since I was a little kid. I remember when he got his Shopsmith and when my parents planned vacations around finding a Shopsmith store, haha. I’ve been the go-fer in the shop for as long as I can remember and occasionally I’ve made a few things by myself, with dad’s help of course.
So when I was given the opportunity to test out a wood watch, I was so excited. I took a look at their website and I knew immediately which watch was my perfect fit.
They are all beautiful, but I knew that the Cora series was so me. First off this series had some beautiful colored faces, like turquoise, coral & lavender. I was drawn immediately to the Zebrawood & turquoise and the small section of the gear showing on the front is super cool.
From the JORD Watches website the Cora watch has awesome features like a Sapphire crystal glass (no scratches!!), Swarovski crystal hour markers, it’s a self-winding automatic watch, which means NO BATTERY!!! How cool is that? I have a lot of watches but I always stop using them when I have to get the battery replaced because it’s so annoying to get it changed.
Sapphire Crystal Glass, Deployment Buckle with push button, Swarovski Crystal Hour Markers, Screw-down crown
Sea-Gull ST6103K, Displays hours, minutes, seconds, 21 jewels, 36 hour power reserve, frequency of 21,600 Beats per Hour, is accurate +/- 3 seconds/day (if worn often), with a self-winding automatic drive system which means no battery
FINISH & CARE:
Hand finished natural Zebrawood & pretreated with tung oils. The Cora is splash-proof but should not be submerged in water.
Avoid extreme hot, cold & excessively dry or humid environments when storing your watch and use Lemon or Orange oil extract to clean the natural wood.
- JORD watches come in 8 different types of wood from all over the world to give a lot of variety. You can find watches in Ebony (East Africa/Mozambique), Koa (Hawaii), Purpleheart (Solomon Islands), Zebrawood (West Africa/Congo), Sandalwood (East Africa/Mozambique or Argentina), Maple (Northeast North America) & Bamboo (South Asia).There are a number of different style for both men and women, each style is available in a few different types of wood.You can find more info on the women’s styles here. And men’s styles here.
A lot of JORD Watches, including mine from the Cora series, are have automatic movements, which means you don’t need to change the battery. It also means that if you don’t wear your watch often it might be off since it is charges with the movement of your body.
Another awesome feature on a number of JORD watches is the Sapphire crystal glass. Second in hardness only to a diamond, it’s colorless, clear to the eye and one of the most scratch resistant materials. I’m so happy my watch has a Sapphire crystal because I’m always scratching mine because I like to wear my watch face on my inner wrist.
I did have to take my watch into a local store to have some links removed and all 3 of the people in the store said that this was the nicest wood watch they had ever seen.
It comes in a very nice wood box on a little pillow, with a cleaning cloth to keep it nice and pretty.
I love my cool new watch and have been wearing it everywhere (outside of on my runs) because it’s super comfortable, looks cool on and is so bright and colorful which totally fits my personality.
