JORD Sully Wooden Watch Review and #Giveaway
A funny story/tidbit about me and Kevin....When we first started dating, I went out of my way and tried really hard to get him the ultimate Christmas gift. Even though we had only just started our relationship, I knew he was the one. So I knew the first gift I gave him I wanted to set the expectations and express to him how strongly I felt. I went out and shopped around a ton, then spent quite a bit of money on a really nice watch for him.
After all my efforts, Kevin informed me as he opened the gift, he didn't wear watches and would not have a use for this gift. Sorely disappointed I can tell you that still after seven years of marriage, I haven't bought a watch for a single person, including myself. Surprisingly, when I was recently asked by JORD to review one of their wooden watches I was finally open to it and adding this accessory into my style again. Being that this was such a unique gift and more than that an eco-friendly one, I thought it was about time I give one a try.
"It's about time someone delivered an unconventional answer to age-old wrist candy. JORD watches are designed to take people back to nature and away from today's metal & rubber. We want to challenge the norm by making unique time pieces as a focal point for everyday fashion." JORD provides "wood watches are one of a kind, premium quality time pieces, hand-crafted with sustainable materials from all over the world".
JORD sent me over their Sully Series Cherry and Maple Watch. I love the contrasting colors as they truly show the different features in this watch and as they state in their description, it makes it obviously even from a distance that this is a wood watch. The glass face is 33 mm in diameter is scratch-proof and on the other end you can find a single action locking clasp made from stainless steel.
Alana actually decided to scoop this review up the minute it arrived through the door and even though its a bit big for her she loves it. All we had to do was remove a few links to get it to fit better around her tiny wrist. We absolutely loved the quality and unique design of this accessory.
Cost/Available to Purchase: $139 Sully Series Cherry and Maple Watch
Recommendation: I think these are great and really awesome quality too! I love the fact that because they are made of a natural wood, no two watches will technically be the same. I don't really see myself paying this much for a watch at this point but in all honesty it's priced really well compared to both other watches of this style AND utilizing a natural, sustainable material.
Giveaway: JORD is going to give one of A Lucky Ladybug's lucky readers a Sully Series Cherry and Maple Watch to have of their own! This begins tonight at 8pm 3/10/14.
