Why I LOVE My JORD Cassia Watch
First and foremost, I want to talk about why my JORD Cassia Watch is fantastic and a piece I’ll wear on my travels. You’ll probably see in photos of Amsterdam in the coming weeks!
Seriously, I’m not kidding when I say that I’m kinda obsessed with this wooden watch. It’s so unique and pretty, and I’ve gotten tons of compliments on it. I’ll probably wear it out to dinner tonight (again).
Not to mention, other people have noticed how much I love my new watch.
I’ll give you an example. Just yesterday I was having lunch with my best friend, who I haven’t seen in AGES, and she immediately asked about my feminine wooden watch, saying that it was striking. And, of course, I ate the compliment right up, haha.
So, for those of you who like earthy and unique designs, you’ll especially like the items JORD has in its extensive collection.
But anyway. Specific details.
The ladies’ wood watch you see in all my photos is a Walnut & Vintage Rose watch.
Full disclosure time. To be 100% honest, I don’t normally wear watches and usually use my phone for telling time, but what’s the fun in that? Phones aren’t delicately made of walnut.
You guys, you guys. I absolutely love how feminine and pretty this wood watch is. I’m also a sucker for rose gold so it makes sense that I would go for the Cassia watch in these colors.
Furthermore, something I liked about JORD watches was that custom professional sizing is available for all customers.
Having this option available means you don’t have to worry about whether or not the watch will cut off your circulation or fall into a sewage grate. JORD will help you out if you’re not sure what your specific watch size is.
JORD is a very responsive company, and as you can see in the photos, my watch fit absolutely perfectly on my wrist. I might even wear it teaching in September!
Shipping was seamless and easy, too. Your JORD comes in a durable box so you know the item will arrive safely and in quality condition.
Finally, I love the styling of the domed sapphire crystal and the Roman, concave dial. This is the type of watch that you can wear with a pair of jeans or a flowy dress for dinner.
As travelers, we are always looking for accessories that are versatile. And you can seriously pair the walnut vintage rose watch with literally any outfit. It’s perfect in that sense.
I’ve Never Heard of JORD. Who Are They?
Not sure who JORD is? I’ll give you a quick lesson.
JORD is actually pronounced YODE and means “Earth” in Norse.
Unsurprisingly, JORD’s designs for watches and other accessories are all inspired by nature. They are most well known for their wooden products including walnut, ebony, zebrawood, and so much more.
JORD has existed since 2013, but they’re actually expanding in 2019 and creating more products using stone and marble. Pretty cool, huh? Again, if you’re into earthy designs, JORD is the company for you.
To be honest, I’ve never heard of JORD prior to this giveaway, but I definitely want to check out their future merchandise!
But What About the Price?
Now you’re probably thinking, “Rachel, come on, I don’t have money laying around to buy watches.”
The Cassia vintage watch retails at a very reasonable $199. I think it’s a very fair price for this piece especially considering watches can cost hundreds upon hundreds of dollars. I’d have zero problem paying out of pocket for this watch.
And hey, you have the opportunity for $100 off your purchase, right? Right!
