What's the Deal Dreadful? I'm back! With a review of the AMAZING Jord Wooden Watches!


   Hello Lovelies!
       I am finally back after a long hiatus. I had an insane amount of things happen over the Summer and I wasn't able to blog at all between swimming lesson for my three Little Dreadfuls, going on a cruise and getting everything ready for all three of my little ones going to school. Since the school year has started, I THOUGHT (yes let's laugh now at my foolishness) that I was going to be able to get back to blogging, writing and all the other things I had been wanting to do but fell to the side. Oh how foolish I was, I am a unpaid taxi driver with taking my three kids to three different schools at THREE different times. Yeah, thanks school board for that one. But I am trying to squeeze in some much needed reviews and looks now of the weekends. So, without much further ado, on with the review!
       I was approached by Jord Watches if I was interested in doing a review of their wooden watches. Yes, you read that right, wooden watches. I love watches and in all honesty I don't see them as often on people as I would like. Yes, everyone and their mother has a cell phone but what happens when the batteries die or you are in some place you need to know the time and you had to turn your phone off? No clocks on the wall? No problem! You have this awesome watch on your arm now that doubles as a time piece and a fashion statement/conversation starter.

   "Is that a wooden watch?"

     Yes, yes it is. Behold it's epic awesomeness.

   But I am getting ahead of myself, let's go back to the beginning. So, as I mention Jord contacted me to see if I was interested in doing a review of them and I was thrilled with the opportunity. After much pondering and consideration (and even consulting the family on this since all of the watches are that gorgeous) I finally decided on the Ely Watch in Red Sandalwood. It was such a stunning rich red color that constantly caught my eye. After my decision Jord send me some instructions on how to measure my wrist for the correct size of the watch so I wouldn't have the issue of having to send it back and resize it which just screams wonderful customer service because it is a horrid pain to receive your item in the mail and then find out it is too big or too small.

The watch arrived quickly there after in really unique packaging. The watch itself was nestled safe and secure inside a lovely wooden box.

It was just as beautiful in person as it was on the website.  Seriously, just look at this..

 Then came the real test, durability which is essential to me since I have three kids and a moose of a dog so anything dainty and delicate will probably not last long. This watch handled ALL four of those destructive forces as well as daily wear and tear with no problem. The watch is considered splash proof and is NOT waterproof. So take it off when doing dishes, going the in pool, or soaking in the tub.  Since this is a wooden watch you are going to have to take care of it a little differently than your metal ones. I asked what the best way to care for watch from Jord was and I was told that the best way to keep the watch looking like new is to apply a natural coating of beeswax, butcher block oil or even walnut oil to prevent the watch against damage and keep it's moisture balance. You can pick up the butcher block oil and walnut oil from Amazon easily for under $20 and it will last you FOREVER and your watch will look just like new.  As far as price, I think that these watches are a great deal. Granted watches vary greatly in price but I think that the cost of these watches are extremely affordable for the quality and beauty that you get.

Yes, the tag is STILL on it. I had to immediately put in on and take a picture. 

   Now if you have the overwhelming desire to have your own epic wooden watch you can buy one from Jord. And if  you need the Ely Watch in Red Sandalwood here it the direct link to it. I hope that you enjoyed this installment of What's the Deal Dreadful and until next time lovelies!
