In this article, you’ll learn about JORD Watches and one of the series in their collection. Find out more in this in-depth review of the JORD Hyde – Ebony & Iron.
JORD’s Hyde – Ebony & Iron
I had the wonderful opportunity to join the JORD (Pronounced “Yoad” as in “Toad” but with a “Y” in place of the “T”) team this quarter.
If you want just one wooden watch for that special occasion, our watch tester and Avant-Garde artist Romero says Hyde – Ebony & Iron is it. The Ebony & Iron Men’s watch is part of the newest offering in the JORD collection, the Hyde series. This handsome, natural ebony is hand finished and pretreated with tung oils. Of course, the Hyde is splash-proof or water-resistant, but not waterproof. Therefore, it should not be submerged in water.
If you are like Romero, an artist, creative, or entrepreneur, you sometimes wish you owned a watch that you could wear to your special event. Something that truly speaks to your personality. The Ebony & Iron, from the Hyde series, would seem to fit that mold. Its unique, minimalist design and elegant appearance pair equally well with a business suit or a polo shirt. And you can even customize this watch so you can gift it as I did.
To enumerate, below are the features:
- sapphire crystal glass
- metal tipped hands
- deployment buckle with push buttons
- push crown
- case width: 43mm
- case thickness: 12mm
- lug ends: 53.2mm
- band thickness: 20.36mm
- band length: 150mm
Who are the watches for?
Hand-crafted wood timepieces that seamlessly fit your personal style. JORD’s collection of unique, wooden timepieces is for the adventurer. In addition, many of the watches in the various collections can be styled and worn on all occasions.
Check out some of the benefits of wooden watches:
- Long-lasting and lightweight
- Heat resistant
Wood is the most durable and sustainable materials on earth. Wooden watches are naturally hypoallergenic and will not cause a reaction on even the most sensitive skin. Wood watches are handcrafted rather than manufactured. Moreover, the chemicals and metals from industrial uses that lead to skin aggravations are not a factor.
Another key point, wooden watches are long-lasting and lightweight. Giving you less resistance and more mobility around the wrist. However, metal tends to heat up quickly and be a less breathable option. For example, if you live in a place like North Carolina where the weather is hot and humid, then you’ll love wood watches.
Where can you find JORD Watches?
Unique, hand-crafted wood watch, fit your style. Undeniably three reasons you’ll love JORD. JORD offers custom box and watch engraving on select models. You can find their collection, available online at http://www.jordwatches.com/shop.
In sum, if you’re looking for a watch that fits your style, then check out JORD Watches. Even though the watch shown in this article is from the men’s collection there’s a women’s collection as well.
