I am fortunate to work with JORD Watches. I love working with companies that appreciate and love to continue the collaboration. Not only that, the customer service is amazing! They sent me the wrong watch and the next day, they shipped out the watch I asked for. How awesome is that! I highly recommend checking out the women's shop that's where I found mine.
I took this picture from my Instagram. I have already reviewed JORD Cora in Maple & Silver, JORD Sully in Green Sandalwood, and JORD Delmar in Dark Sandalwood & Blue Carbon.

Thoughts: When I saw this watch, I fell in love. I have never seen purple wood before.
Now for my overall opinion... First of all just like every other watches from JORD, it's extremely well-made! It's sturdy, light-weight, and there's no wood sticking out. I've had the first JORD watch for some time now and they look brand new just as I received them. Since I've received this watch, I wore it pretty often. I got it wet and even spilled soda on the watch. Even with all that wetness, the wood didn't turn sticky and change color. That's how durable these watches are. With that said, it's a lot lighter than metal watches. That is one thing that has held me back from wearing watches. Since I got wood watches, I wear them more often than I ever did in the past. I also love that I don't have to worry about getting splinters. That is one of the fear of most people. Trust me it's so smooth I doubt that will happen. Secondly and last, I love the purple center and plum color wood. It's extremely unique. With that said, you cannot wear this watch with every outfit like black and brown watches. Even though it's not the typical black and brown watch, it'll stand out. I get so many compliments and curiosity with my brown wood watch. I get a lot more with this purple wood watch. Everyone loves it because it's so different. That's why I was drawn to it!
* Great customer service!
* Comes in protected wood box.
* Come with extra extensions.
* Comes with a cloth.

Would repurchase: Yes!
