JORD wood watch review

When it comes to picking out gifts for men, especially my husband, I always struggle. I love him dearly but part of our connection together is that we like so many different things. Tools and camping gear are not my knowledge base at all. If I am being honest, half the stuff I buy him he usually returns. Don't even get me started on the kayak I bought him that he resold on Craigslist!

So when I was contacted by Jord to review one of their watches I knew just the man that would be a perfect recipient. David is extremely handy and knows how to wield a jigsaw so when I saw that these watches were completely made out of wood, well I knew my wife stock was about to go way up.
This watch has so many neat features one of which is that it is self winding and you can completely see all the insides from the back of the watch. Honestly as soon as I saw him put it on I was kind of bummed I didn't select one for myself instead!

David chose the Dover style crafted from koa wood - which immediately reminded us both of our honeymoon in Kauai where koa is a pretty coveted item. It's a sleek watch and contrary to what I initially thought, that it would be heavy, it's actually very lightweight.
There are a lot of reasons to love this watch but for me especially it fits so well with my husband and his personality. Not to mention it catches everyones's attention and is almost always followed with "that's made out of wood?!"
So if you have a man in your life that loves being unique, is a handy man or is a trendy man. These watches truly fit a lot of different personalities. Also wouldn't it make for the best 5th anniversary gift which is wood?! 
PS. Men can't have all the fun - the women's line is equally as neat!
