As you know I get review amazing products that I love with my readers. I have reviewed all kinds of items from toys to cars and every time I get to learn about a new company and product which I absolutely love. A few weeks ago I shared a post about receiving my new Jord wooden watch!
I shared with you how excited I was to see and feel a real wooden watch! I have never bought a watch from Jord before and I was so curious about the wooden watch. The website has amazing photos on it and the choice was very hard. I choose the FRANKIE!
Why did watch interest me? There were two main reasons why I really wanted this watch! First, the overall appearance of the watch caught my eye. This is not your ordinary watch and I love how unique it is. I know most of the younger generations as not investing in a watch since they use their smart phones for telling the time. They are missing out! I hope my review will spark some of them to purchase their first watch! I also, love the size of the face of the watch! It is large and I really like that I can tell time easily since the face is large.
The sustainability of a product is something that I pay attention to. I want to know that family is getting the best sustainability when it comes to products we buy. The materials used in my watch can be seen here! Please be sure to read before purchasing because not all of the wood used in the watches is sustainable. They want to appeal to everyone since not everyone buys based on sustainability.
The Frankie watch is a dark sandalwood and just catches your eye! I believe most people will consider this watch a splurge purchase! I am a single Mom and know that not all watches are priced in the same price range. I will say that this watch is worth every penny based on the appeal and craftsmanship of it. I also love how they let you measure before ordering so you watch fits perfectly! That type of customization is a huge plus.

The natural dark sandalwood is hand finished and pretreated with tung oils. The Frankie is splash-proof but should not be submerged in water (3 ATM).
Lemon or orange oil extract is best for cleaning the natural wood. When storing this timepiece, avoid extremely hot, cold, and excessively dry/humid environments.
This watch is durable and is a for sure statement piece. I can’t tell you how many people stopped to ask me where I got this watch from. A lot!!! I don’t normally splurge on myself but, I would love to get more in other styles. With Mother’s Day coming up I think this is a perfect gift and very unique gift idea. Parents with Style gives it two thumbs up.
Overall, I found the watch to be very sturdy and appealing. I find myself wearing to work and for a night out on the town. I don’t wear it as much just cleaning and working around the house. I like it more as a statement piece since I have small wrists and the face of the watch is large. I dress it up with some more bracelets and away I go.
