My Favorite New Accessory | A Unique Wood Watch by JORD

Review of the JORD FRANKIE series watch.

*We’ve partnered with JORD for this post.

As a female woodworker, I have an appreciation for unique wooden accessories. You all know how much I love bangles and earrings, but I also love watches.   So when Jord, reached out and asked if I would be interested in reviewing one of their watches, I was excited about the prospect of reviewing a watch that is made of wood.

If you’re not aware, Jord is one of the premier manufacturers of wooden watches. And it’s an American company.   Jord (pronounced Yode) is based in St. Louis. It develops watches that are a sophisticated mix of natural materials. It’s contents are largely re-claimed, combined with quality movements and components.  So, in essence, this is a green and environmentally conscious organization. And Jord is constantly developing new designs.

The Watch

I chose to review the Frankie Zebrawood & Navy watch because I fell in love with its minimalist and simplistic design.  I also really like blue. The clock face is a pleasant navy blue. It arrived in the mail in a cute little cardboard box wrapped around a small burlap pillow.


First Impressions

Typically, I’ll admit, I wouldn’t select a unisex watch because often the size is a little larger than a standard female watch.   However, I was pleasantly surprised by the ‘FRANKIE’ series by Jord. This watch is well crafted and is a lot lighter than I expected it to be.  The watch isn’t bulky and the overall look of the watch is slim and elegant.  I also really like the look of the exotic zebrawood. The woodgrain is aligned from the watch face down through the band.


Watch Features

The Frankie series comes in a variety of color selections, mixing color tones of the watch face and exotic wood tones of the watch band.

  • This watch, along with many other Jord watches, can be customized with an engraving on the backplate
  • Jord watches can be sized to fit your wrist…big or small.
  • While the Frankie Zebrawood & Navy watch is not waterproof,  it is splash proof.
  • Jord offers free shipping, even internationally
  • They even offer an easy payment plan for watches via Affirm.
