Wooden Watch Review and Giveaway!!

Disclosure: I was sent this watch to review free of charge from JORD Watch. All opinions in this post are my own. I did not receive any other compensation for this review. As in all my reviews I am providing links for your ease, but receive no compensation. JORD Watch is also providing me a watch to giveaway to one of you!!

 I am so excited to review this product and offer one as a prize!! Why? Because it is something I have been searching for almost my whole life. I know you are now thinking I am a bit crazy. After all it is a watch and you can find watches everywhere. However I have extremely sensitive skin and possibly an allergy to nickel. With this issue every watch I have owned has given me a watch if I wore them regularly. And I should add I have owned/tried many watches. I grew up in the 80's so I always wore a Swatch, but every couple of weeks I would have to put nail polish on the battery cover so it would not give me a rash. I wasn't so sure about always having nail polish next to my skin and stopped wearing them. I had a nice gold watch my grandparents gave me for my high school graduation, but I could only wear it for one day or it would give me the rash. I even found watches with ribbon bands, but where the ribbon connected still gave me the rash. (Did I mention the button on jeans gives me a rash?) So in college or so I stopped wearing watches and had finally just given up on them. Then JORD Watch contacted me asking if I would like to review on of their wood watches. When I saw that they were almost completely wooden, I jumped at the chance.

Sorry Steve took this one with my phone before getting the new camera
They sent me the cherry Ely watch. I chose the Ely because it was definitely completely wood except for the metal clasp. I asked for cherry because I really like cherry wood.



The cover on the back of the watch is wood and is held on with inset screws that never touch the skin!! I love it!! The only metal to touch the skin is on the clasp.


My watch is just a bit loose so the metal clasp is not constantly touching my skin, but if it bothers me (which it has not) I could easily glue a piece of ribbon there without affecting the clasp itself. When closed you barely see any of the clasp.


I got the watch just before Christmas and have been showing it to many people. Most love the look of it. A few think it is nice but not their style at all. My father tried it on at Christmas and commented on how comfortable it is to wear. Now they have many different styles for both men and women. 


Now for the fun part--I get to give one away!! And you get to choose one of their fine watches. The giveaway prize is a certificate for $129 (cost of the Ely watch) plus free shipping. If you want one of the more expensive wooden watches, you can apply the $129 toward the cost and pay the difference. To enter the giveaway, please follow my Giveaway Rules (open to U.S. residents only--sorry) and follow the Rafflecopter. Good luck!!
