NOTE: Contest details are at the bottom of the post!

If you look on Instagram, there are a ton of watch brands looking to get their products out there. I’ve been contacted by so many that I’ve just been reluctant to agree to them for a couple of reasons.

  1. I just didn’t like the style.
  2. I already had the same style in a different brand.
  3. I was worried the watch wouldn’t be able to withstand traveling or my lifestyle in general.

That last one is the most important to me.

Listen, you either use a watch or you don’t. I actually use mine to tell time and like them to be stylish. But they have to keep up with my traveling and the fact that I’m constantly on-the-move.

Also, when traveling to other countries, I try not to wear anything too flashy, especially when it comes to wristwear that can be easily spotted.

That’s when JORD watches swooped in and we talked about their unique watches. Wooden watches are awesome. They don’t have the same typical rubber, metal, or nylon bands you see. At the same time, the wooden bands are incredibly stylish but still minimal.

I really loved the Zebrawood and Dark Sandalwood Chronograph watch, as you can see below.

They make these amazing wood watches from different types of wood around the world. Each one is perfectly crafted to have a sense of class.

At the same time, they’re subtle. From far away, you don’t notice the watch, which is perfect for traveling!

When people got up close to it, that’s when I started getting a ton of comments about how cool and unique it looks. It’s seriously one of those things where pictures don’t do it justice.

So I took it on my trip to Peru and Machu Picchu (a place where pictures don’t do it justice).

I was worried about it handling all of the flights, bus rides, train rides, and most importantly, the hike up to Machu Picchu.

I have to say, it handled everything without a hitch and I didn’t have to worry about it falling off because it has a high-quality clasp.

And as you can tell by the pictures, it fit really well in the environment.

I’m also a sucker for presentation, so when I received the box I was ecstatic to see how well packaged it was.

It comes in this well-crafted wooden box with the logo on it, but when you open it, the watch is neatly nestled around the pillow and underneath it comes with:

  • Cleaning cloth
  • Instruction manual
  • Finishing oil
  • Polishing cloth

Because of the natural wood, it’s important to keep it in good condition, so it’s really great that JORD offers the oil to take care of it.

At the bottom of the wooden case, there’s a drawer where you can store your cleaning gear, but what’s also cool is that it comes with a 2-way humidity control packet to maintain the nature of the wood.

JORD seriously went through and made sure every detail was covered. It really is outstanding.

This really is my favorite watch right now because it goes with any outfit and can handle all of my traveling needs while still looking classy enough for business. Expect to see this one in future pictures on my Instagram.
