JORD Watches: Wooden Timepieces Done Right

Standing out from the crowd is easier said than done when designing and crafting a watch. Over the years, we have seen watchmakers turn to various gimmicks and unique designs to appeal to wearers. One of those unique flourishes has been the wooden timepiece, which if done well can be elegant, but if done poorly can look and feel cheap. JORD is a company that does the wooden watch justice with its slick designs for men and women.

JORD understands what it takes to make a good timepiece. Through a painstaking development process, the company has been able to craft appealing wooden watches. The key to the success of JORD products is a clear understanding of what a timepiece made from wood should offer. Firstly, excellently sourced materials, detailed craftsmanship, and finally ensuring the watch itself is quality.

No gimmicks here, just designs that will appeal to watch enthusiasts combining mechanical accuracy with cool visuals. In addition to exotic woods, such as Zebrawood, Koa, Black Palm, and Ebony, JORD incorporates other natural materials such as black Marquina and white marble. JORD has also quickly become a favorite amongst Apple Watch owners, who can buy specialized straps made from wood or leather.

Men’s JORD Watches

JORD men’s watches are available in a wide range of series. Covering all sizes and aesthetics, the selections are affordable and appealing, while each series is available in several wood finishes and designs.

The Black Palm Limited Edition MERIDIAN is a particular standout in the men’s range. This spectacular watch is made from Borassus Flabellifer and is only available in a run of 300 made-to-order pieces. JORD has also debuted its RIST (Resin-Infusion Stabilization Technology) on the Black Palm.

RIST is a specialized resin solution that has been developed to allow added strength and a more premium finish. JORD achieved this leap in technology by placing the Black Palm wood into an activated resin, which was then put under a vacuum. The company describes the innovation as horology first, providing the wearer with a more durable and resistant material.
