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.
