The Hip List: Wood Watches By Jord

Wood is what holds homes together, it is what we walk on when we vacation at the Jersey Shore, it stands tall in our forests. Rethink this sturdy material and picture it around your wrist, telling time.

Unlike the other uses of wood mentioned above, with Jord watches, wood is the main feature.

Jord translates to earth, soil, land in Swedish and speaks true to the concept of the Jord watch. Entwined in each timepiece is an appreciation for natural elements, simplicity, efficiency and above all utility.

“Jord owners don’t just have somewhere to be, they have somewhere to go. We believe our watches tell more than time,” according to

Each watch is designed to be as unique as its owner. With selections including colorful faces, square and round pieces, multi-colored wooden bands, and untraditional wooden blends, you’re sure to find your Jord perfect match!

“Our methods ensure that our watches are not just worn, they’re used,” Jord’s website reads.

Wear your Jord like a boss, use it like it’s your job.
