JORD Wood Watch, Cora Series - Koa & Rose Gold

Good evening!  I have a different post for you tonight, and I'm very excited about it!  I was recently approached by JORD, a company that makes gorgeous wood watches, to review a watch for them!  I know a watch has nothing to do with nail polish, but as I (infrequently) feature makeup, jewelry and skin care products on my blog I felt it wasn't that big of a stretch to share a watch with you too so I happily accepted.  Let me fill you in on JORD.  JORD is a company run by artists who that create watches modeled after a modern lifestyle.  A variety of wood from all over the world is used to created these unique timepieces; Ebony (Africa), Koa (Hawaii), Rosewood (Brazil), Maple (America), etc.  The face of the watches are made of Sapphire Glass, a synthetic crystal that is colorless and optically clear.  It's very high quality and second only to diamonds for its hardness and scratch resistance.  There is a wide range of watches on the JORD site, both in men's and women's styles.  I also feel that for an artisan time-piece, the watches are very affordable - plus JORD offers free shipping worldwide!  The Cora Koa and Rose Gold watch is available online now for $275 USD.  Now that you know a little about JORD let's check out some pictures and my thoughts on the watch I was sent!

I selected one of the newer watched to the JORD family, the Cora Koa and Rose Gold style.  I am a huge fan of rose gold and feel it's one of those colors that is trans-seasonal so this watch will be easy to accessorize with my upcoming Fall and Winter outfits.  My Cora Koa showed up in a this pretty wooden box with the JORD J etched on to the lid.

The lid slides off to reveal this tiny herringbone fabric pillow and the Cora Koa and Rose Gold watch.

There is also a membership card, a cloth to clean the face of the watch and extra links if I ever need to have my watch resized.  When you select your watch you can download a sizing tool to determine the length that would be most comfortable of your.  It's very easy and also a nice touch to have a watch customized so specifically to your own wrist size.

I wanted to make sure to show you all the features of the watch.  Look at how intricate and interesting the back of the time piece is.  I love that it's not covered up so you can see the gears working.

Here's the clasp.  Both wooden ends close in towards each other and click closed.  The links are flush with the rest of the watch when the buckle is closed.

I took a few pictures wearing the watch so you could see the size and the thickness of the face of the watch.  I have a very thin wrist and the JORD Cora Koa and Rose Gold watch was very comfortable to wear.  I didn't have any problems moving my wrist around or bending my hand in any direction.  This watch was unbelievably light weight too!  When I am wearing it I forget that I have it on.   Can you see that little circle window that peeks in to the gears of the watch?  How cool is that?

And just because my blog is primarily a nail blog, I had to do some nail pics with the Cora Koa and Rose Gold watch!  I wanted to create nails that reflected the beautiful face of the watch - emulating the rose gold color and Swaowski crystal accents so I picked out Orly Rage, a metallic rose gold polish and brushed on loose silver glitter at the tops.  The Cora Koa is causal elegance at it's best and it fits my mom uniform lifestyle so perfectly!
