In a world filled with apple watches and fitness trackers, I was honored to be gifted a fabulous watch from Jord Watches. It’s not really a watch, it is a beautiful timepiece that looks far more elegant than anything I have worn in years.
Not that I don’t love my apple watch, because I do. But there are occasions that call for something a bit dressier and this Jord Watch fits the bill nicely.
When the watch first arrived, I set it on the kitchen counter and carefully opened the box. As soon as I loosened the seal on the box, I could smell it. That fresh woodsy sent of recently cut wood. Finally, you see the beautiful inner box that the watch comes in. A three-tiered box with a drawer at the bottom. Little did I know it is a collector’s edition humidor cedar watch box!
I removed the top of the humidor box and was delighted to find a very feminine looking watch made of zebrawood with a rose’ colored face, gold numbers and hands, and a cool “peek-a-boo” hole showing the inner workings of the watch. The watch was fitted and latched around a small, burlap pillow. Cora is sophisticated and fun, interesting and polished.
I was worried about the fit but Jord sends you a template to measure your wrist. My wrist is small and because of template, Cora fits perfectly. It slips over your hand and the bands clasp (a work of art itself) and slides together easily with one hand. The latch also opens easily with one hand for quick removal at the end of the evening.
Included with the Cora watch is a cleaning cloth and a 6 month supply of Jord Preserve – a custom formulated wood treatment. It is a treatment gel with an applicator pen that you put on your watch before the first time you wear it and use it to preserve the wood finish. You apply the gel with the pen to the wooden parts and gently rub with the polishing cloth. Let it sit for about 10 minutes before putting it on. It will keep your timepiece in optimal condition for years to come.
Jord has watches for both men and women. They have a variety of styles and finishes.

I’ve never seen a watch like that. I bet the cedar humidor smells wonderful. Surely a unique, one-of-a-kind item!
It is a beautiful watch. I love the color and the style. The box does smell wonderful!
Oh it is so pretty! I love that it has a pink face on it! How cool! I am glad you were able to get a good fit too!
Thank you Amy. It’s a cool piece. I still don’t wear it very much but am trying to do it more often.
