JORD Cora in Maple & Silver and Giveaway

I am fortunate to work with JORD Watch. If you know nothing about JORD Watch...

JORD is run by artists, designers, marketers, and minders. We spend our days creating, considering, arguing, and hopefully agreeing. Then we'll scrap it all for the joy of starting new. We have fun. This is our journey.

We are focused on crating timepieces that are modeled after a modern lifestyle. We value sustainability, efficiency, and experiential living. We make our watches for people who don't just have somewhere to be, they have somewhere to go.

The value of a watch is not in being able to tell how much time has passed, but in being aware of the need to make that time count. Moments are bigger than minutes and your watch should tell more than time. Start the conversation."

I got this from the website and they said it better than I ever could!

Thoughts: Even before receiving the watch, I saw one on Instagram. I fell in love and was extremely excited to receive my own!
Here's how the watch was packaged. I love how they sealed the box and that it wasn't separated during the shipment.
Here's how the box looks and it matches the brand very well.
You slide the top forward to open the box.
Here's how the watch looks in the box.
Here are the pieces that was inside the box.
It came with a cloth to wipe the glass.
It came with two extra pieces to extend the watch. Thankfully, I didn't have to use it because the watch fit me perfectly!
Here's a look at the watch.
Here's the watch by itself.
Here's the inside glass of the watch. Isn't it cool?
The watch comes with a metal button on the bottom of the band. I love that you just have to click on it to open.
Here's how the band looks when opened.
Here's how the watch looks on me. I have to give fashion bloggers a lot of credit! It took a lot to take good pictures, but then again I had to take my own pictures. I don't have anybody to take it for me.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, it is extremely well-made! There's no nicks from the wood. I can run my fingers through the wood and know that I won't get any cuts. That's a huge plus knowing that we would wear the watch in daily basis. The metal parts of the watch is shiny and there's no scratches even after wearing it several times. Secondly, it's not heavy at all. To be honest, I don't wear watches that often because of the weight. It feels chunky especially since I spend 8 hours a day typing away. I don't need something heavy to bother me while I'm at work. JORD Watch feels light and it doesn't bother me while my arm is lying on the desk. Lastly, it's just plain gorgeous! I can wear it casual, dressed up, and the maple wood goes well with every color of the outfit. Plus, I got a lot of compliments. I've also had people ask me if the watch is made out of wood. It's a conversation starter!

* Well packaged.
* Comes in a cute, matching box.
* Comes with a cloth to wipe the glass.
* Comes with extra pieces to extend the band.
* Well-made watch.
* No nicks from the wood; won't cut yourself.
* No scratches on the metal/glass parts even after wearing it.
* Light; not chunky.
* Gorgeous.
* Will get a lot of compliments!

* Only can be purchased online.

Would repurchase: Yes!!!
