REVIEW | JORD Wood Watch in Ely Series (Cherry)

Good day, everyone! My birthday is just few days over but I still feel pumped and blessed! Everything went well and I think it was the best birthday. I spent it with my family and boyfriend and during that day, everything happened smoothly; no complications. I also feel so blessed with a lot of things. Thank God! One of the best things I received before my birthday is this JORD Wood Watch. The company sent me this gorgeous watch and ever since I got it, I can't stop using it.

Description (source: http://www.woodwatches.com/series/ely#11):

Ely is the complement to our Fieldcrest series, produced using a slightly smaller dial and band, with the addition of a date display. The simplicity of this design accentuates the intricacy of the wood grain. The Ely is understated and effortless.

  • Deployment Buckle with Push Button

  • Scratch Resistant Mineral

  • Citizen Miyota Quartz Movement (2015 w/Date Display)

  • Case Width: 37mm

  • Case Thickness: 11mm

  • Lug Ends: 45mm

  • Band Length: 200mm

  • Band Thickness: 21mm


Each JORD watch is designed to be splash proof but is not intended for complete submergence in water. Also note that due to the nature of the wood chosen for each unique timepiece, colors and grain pattern may vary from photos.



I received the package approximately 7 weeks after confirmation. I think delivery varies depending on how fast postal office/customs in a specific country handles packages. Nevertheless, the watch arrived in excellent condition. Although wrapped in a bubble wrap, the box got deformed a bit but I don't mind for as long as the product inside is safe and sound. Well, given the chance, I would have wanted the wood box just like what I saw in their website.

Upon opening, I saw this beautiful watch together with its warranty card and a cushion for storage.



They had the watch custom-fit for me (I gave the measurement, of course) but they still included the removed part into my package which I like because in case I get bigger or if my sister wants to have it, we can always have it adjusted. The sad thing though, I gave a wrong measurement and I had to find a jeweler who can adjust it. The first one I went to cannot do it. I was successful with the second one. They are actually surprised every time I hand them this watch. I know why, IT LOOKS SO UNIQUE!



This particular design, Ely, comes in four different colors: Natural Green & Maple, Maple, Cherry and Black. I chose Cherry because it looks feminine to me and I think it will match any outfit but will still standout. The date will be very much helpful since I tend to forget and ask every time.



I didn't expect the back part to be wood as well but it is and I like it. Engraved are some details like brand name, logo and where it was manufactured.



You can even see the logo on the crown of the watch. Talk about nice details here.



The buckle is made of stainless steel and it snaps perfectly. When you need to release it, all you have to do is press both sides.

If you are wondering why the background of my photos are changing, it is because I want you to see how the watch looks in both natural and artificial lighting. The ones with black background are the photos I took indoors.



Let's now move on to my favorite part: the part where I wore the watch! It looks really nice! I can't stop raving about it. I like how people react when they see me wearing it. They would ask if it is made of real wood and you can really tell that they are amazed. Ever since I received this, my old watches have been resting. Well, I don't normally use a watch or jewelry but this one is an exception. I love wearing it every time I go out. It is perfect for everyday wear since it is very lightweight.



Here, I wore a simple white top and basic jeans. The watch added a nice touch to my outfit.



I never had problems with its mechanism inside. The time and date is always in sync with my other gadgets. I tested this watch and wore it during the rainy days and I am happy that nothing bad happened to it. I expected it to have white marks but I was wrong. Of course, since it is made out of wood, it shouldn't be submerged to water but it is splash resistant.

Let's do a summary.

What I like:

  • The watch arrived safely.

  • You can have it adjusted according to your preference.

  • Unique look because of the wood component.

  • Functional.

  • Very fashionable.

  • Splash-resistant.

  • Available in different colors.

  • Loving the details in every angle.

  • Shipping cost to Philippines is $20. I think that's fair enough.


Neutral:

  • $129 (roughly Php5700) is quite pricey but then again, it is a unique watch!


What I don't like:

  • The waiting period. Delivery takes weeks depending on the location.

  • The box got a bit distorted during shipping period.

  • You have to be careful not to submerge it in any liquid. I should practice not being too clumsy.

  • Not locally available. (You may purchase it online and pay for shipping)


Ratings:

  • Packaging: 3.5/5

  • Appearance: 5/5

  • Functionality: 5/5

  • Availability: 2.5/5

  • Affordability: 4/5


Overall Rating: 4/5

I am totally in love with my JORD Wood Watch in Ely. I am sure we will have more time spent together. I think I will also save money to be able to buy another one in a different design.
