*Cut to 3 weeks later*
No watch. Now the first few weeks I actually wasn't worried. Mainly because it was being shipped by USPS and they had been iffy in the past when it came to being quick and keeping up to date with their tracking. But then I realised it probably wasn't gonna make it when I finally checked my local postal service tracking and they had no record(aka it never made it into the country). After 3 weeks I gave up hope, and when the people from Jord asked if I liked the watch I told them what I just told you. Luckily about a week after that, they got in contact with me and told me they were shipping another watch to me. I really appreciated this because I realise that this isn't some inexpensive pack of nail stickers they are resending. That watch got to me less than a week later. So here it is, finally in the wood, my Jord Wood Watch.
I decided to go with the Zebrawood & Maple from the Feildcrest series. I actually really liked the Dark Sandalwood, but decided against it because it felt like it would blend in with my skin. In the end I am glad I chose the one I chose. I like it even more now that I have it in person, it just has so much dimension to it. Trying it out has kind of been a chore, and not because of the watch itself. I own one other watch, and I never wear it. I'm just not used to wearing watches, it's weird to me. So I would forget to wear it a lot. Also when I did wear it I had a tendency not to actually use it. Almost every single time I needed to check what time it was I would seek out my phone without even thinking. But again that's a me thing.
Like I said before the watch I got was made of Zebrawood and Maple. You can find all the details on the types of wood they use on their site. Everything from the source, to the texture, to the height of the tree. When you order they tell you how to measure you wrist so you get the perfect fit. I ended up getting my friend to measure my wrist with measuring tape, and when the watch came I had no problems with the fit. When I saw the watch for the first time I was a bit worried about the size of the watch face. I have skinny twig like arms, and the last thing I wanted was to look like I was wearing some sort of clown watch. Luckily for me, it wasn't too big. It is on the bigger side, but not big in a bad way.
Double sided clasp. The side with the name on it is already clipped down. And the other side, when closed will meet the side with the same. Making the metal clasp invisible.
With the watch you get a cleaning cloth, extra wooden links as well as a warranty card and they all come in a nifty wooden box. And they advise you to take care of the watch by using Lemon or orange oil extract. And to avoid placing it in extremely hot, cold, and excessively dry/humid environments. And while the watch isn't water proof, it is splash proof. So if you get a bit or rain or water from the sink on it, that's ok, but you probably shouldn't go diving with it on.

Overall I really do like this watch and I think it goes really well with a lot of my fall/winter outfits. I also like wearing it on stage and at auditions.While it is functional it is also a beautiful fashion accessory, that isn't in your face, but is still an attractive addition to any outfit.
Outfit I wore on stage. One Fashion by Vero Moda, H&M shorts paired with black tights and my Zebrawood & Maple wood watch. Not shown: Steve Madden combat boots(They have studs on the back)
If you would like to get your wrist in this watch, you can head over here, where they retail for $120 USD. And if that's not the watch for you, they have plenty of other options. They have different woods, different styles(for men and woman) and they all range in price from $120-$295 USD.
Ps. I may do same nails at some point. Didn't want to bog up the post.
