I am a total beach bum. I live on an island surrounded by water. You can’t walk 5 mins without hitting a beach. My house is very beachy and I love anything that makes me think of the beach. To me it is the most peaceful place in the world. When I was approached by Jord to review one of their wooden watches I was stoked! I had seen these watches before during a twitter party I attended and I fell in love with them straight away. They have such a free beachy feel to their look. Classy, understated and smooth like the waves on a calm summer day.
I had a hell of a time choosing which watch to get. I couldn’t decide if I should get one for the hub, or get one for myself. In the end I chose the Sully Series in black and maple for the hubster. Im kinda kicking myself now cause I realllly like it and the Ely series (for women) is so freakin RAD! But hey, chalk it up to some brownie points for me for the next time I over spend shopping…lol
So a little about Jord first. I have to say I like these guys, I mean we haven’t been out on a dinner date or anything but just from browsing their site and a few emails back and forth you can tell these are good, light hearted people. Their site is much like their watches. It is fun and breezy. The write ups to their products are light and funny. There is no pretentious, stuffy, uptight garbage. I like it, I like them. Their service has been bang on and the whole experience to me has been wicked awesome. Apparently these beautiful watches were devised after “an all night redbull fueled session” lol. If that doesn’t scream- not your average bear, then I don’t know what does. You can read the full story here.
Ok! To the good stuff. The watch. As I said I picked the Sully in back and maple. It. Is. Awesome! The shipping was fairly fast and it came all snuggled up in the pretty little box. (even has its own pillow) The first things I noticed about the watch is that it is extreamly light. I swear some of my hubs other watches weight 5 pounds. But this one is so light and doesn’t have that clunkyness most mens watches do. It is smooth. Like a Barry White album. No chanced of splinters, no knicks in the wood. Just a beautiful rich, smooth finish.
