Hello! 😀

Jord Wooden Watch Review

Jord Ely Watch

Today I have a wonderful wooden watch that has been kindly sent to me from JORD to share with you!

This is the Ely in black. And I absolutely love it!

The wooden box it arrived in is so cute! (I do have a weakness for well designed packaging)

But more importantly. What’s in the box?!

The Ely watch is on it’s own branded pillow with a little engraved wooden tag, a warranty card and a card with social media information along with a couple of extra links for the strap.

It all arrived carefully packed inside and out with bubble wrap, and made it all the way from America with out a single scratch!

The Ely retails at $129 which is around £83 and JORD ship internationally.

The Ely is available in four different types of wood, each one a different colour, Black (my one), Cherry (a warm red), Natural Green with Maple (green toned light wood) and Maple (pale honey shade).

The watch itself feels really well made, the wood is very smooth and surprisingly tactile, I keep finding myself stroking it lol.

This is what JORD say about the Ely Watch.

“Ely is produced using a slightly smaller dial and band, with the addition of a date display. The simplicity of this design accentuates the intricacy of the wood grain. The Ely is understated and effortless.”

And the technical details.

  • Deployment Buckle with Push Button
  • Scratch Resistant Mineral
  • Citizen Miyota Quartz Movement (2015 w/Date Display)
  • Case Width: 37mm
  • Case Thickness: 11mm
  • Lug Ends: 45mm
  • Band Length: 200mm
  • Band Thickness: 21mm

Also the clasps are made from stainless steel which is great if you have metal allergies.

JORD Wooden Watch With wood nails

For my JORD inspired wood grain nails I used

  • Color Club Black-ish
  • Color Club Rebel Spirit
  • Malava Zanzibar
  • Revlon Hot For Chocolate
  • Revlon Stiletto

Starting with a base of Hot For Chocolate I used a thin brush and Stiletto to paint the grain, I decided that a different pattern on each nail as the wood of each link has a different pattern.

With the same thin brush I added Rebel Spirit, Black-ish and Zanzibar to add a little more depth to the wood grain pattern.

I really love that this watch is unique, it’s light and easy to wear, and because of the lovely neutral colours and classic design it’s really easy to dress up or down. 😀

This really took a long time to finish, but most of that was getting all the striping tape lined up.

For the stripy nails I started with Snow Me White, then the striping tape and a couple of coats of Come To Bed Red, it really was quite bumpy so I added two coats of top coat to even it out.

The tree is Emerald City, and some nail studs! The little reindeer is from plate HD05 and the snowflakes are from plate QA86. I did actually double stamp the snowflakes with Antiquated and Konad Black but the gold doesn’t really show up over the stripy background :/

On my ring and middle fingers I applied two coats of Sardonyx this polish is from the Models Own Velvet Goth collection so it dries matte, I un-matted it with a coat of Seche Vite.

For the candles on my ring finger I used Snow Me White, Antiquated and Black-ish, I painted them with a little paintbrush.

The Christmas Pud on my middle finger is a mixture of Hot For Chocolate, Its All San Andreas’s Fault and Black-ish. I used Its All San Andreas’s Fault for some added texture. For the cream I again used Snow Me White the Holly is Emerald City and Come To Bed Red! I didn’t add any more topcoat over my pudding, so it would keep it’s texture! 🙂
