Dressed Up Giveaway/The Collars Love: JORD Watches -- Now Closed

Time for a giveaway!  Instructions at the bottom of the post!

We're freaking thrilled to be working with an awesome brand this week sponsoring a giveway: Jord wood watches. Jord even sent us a watch to review first. This beautiful black and maple wood timepiece is the Sully. We chose it because it's so awesomely unisex -- weighty on a man, oversized on a woman. Here's what we have to say about it:



It's well crafted. The unit is perfectly hinged and evenly weighted but very light. It slinks around fluidly and it's as smooth as metal, but it's not cold. A major plus for lingering winters like this one. Also, the wristband isn't elasticized, so it doesn't grab your arm hairs.

It's smart. This watch is self-winding. Also, you can easily customize the size of the wristband, as several of the links are secured with tiny but substantial screws that can be removed with a mini screwdriver. Jord officially recommends letting a jeweler do it, but between you and me, we did it ourselves and it took 10 minutes.

The wood finish is extremely versatile. The watch can look classic and collegiate or casual and playful, depending on how you style it. The sun kept creeping in and out from behind the clouds during this shoot, and you can see how dramatically the direct vs. indirect sunlight brings out different aspects in the black maple watchface. Certain lights make it seem almost blue (though that aspect became somewhat amplified in the photos), while other lights highlight the grain.

Wanna enter our giveaway for a $139 watch? Cool, scroll down!



Today, we are giving away one $139 watch like this one.

  1. Nice watch. I love the wood look. How heavy is it?

    1. Hey Stark! Like I said in the review, it's extremely light -- I was actually pretty surprised by how little it weighs, especially relative to the substantial look of it. :)

  2. Liked 'em on Facebook. A lovely wood watch would make a much classier replacement for my worn-out, purple Timex, that's for sure. :)

  3. I'm so in love with that watch. :3

  4. Wow, that's a seriously rad watch! Definitely a neat concept. I like that it's got that oversized look without looking comically large on your wrist -- that's always the tricky thing about large watches and small wrists, as I'm sure you've experienced, too, Cammila.

    Anyhow, awesome post as always (I know I never comment, but I always read your posts)! I've got my fingers crossed for a win, as I've been woefully watchless for almost a year, since my last one broke and I haven't found the right replacement yet.

    Keep on being the most awesome blogger-bloggess couple around, you two! :)

  5. I was just thinking how I could use a watch. If I win, I will wear it with pride, and tell everyone how awesome the Collar's are.

  6. YAY! I would love to win! Following them on Twitter (@rachelslookbook). My dad loves when I wear watches because he thinks I do so to tell the time ;) But I had to inform him that it is to look stylish!

  7. I am following on Instagram and I love the look of these watches. (@southwestprincess) They are classy yet have a rustic look, which is my style to the tee. I can just imagine wearing this watch with everything. But I would have to guard it with my life because all my friends would try and take it ;)

  26. Sweetness!!! I would epically love to win and to select a watch to give to my darling husband for his birthday in August, or perhaps our 10th wedding anniversary in October. Either way, their offerings strike me as being very much up is alley sartorially and so my fingers will be very, very firmly crossed for this splendid giveaway.

    I've liked Jord on Facebook.
