Wood Watches by JORD JORD is run by artists, designers, marketers, and minders. We spend our days creating, considering, arguing, and hopefully agreeing. Then we'll scrap it all for the joy of starting new. We have fun. This is our journey. We are focused on creating timepieces made from all-natural wood that are modeled after a modern lifestyle. We value sustainability, efficiency, and experiential living. We make our watches for people who don't just have somewhere to be, they have somewhere to go. The value of a watch is not in being able to tell how much time has passed, but in being aware of the need to make that time count. Moments are bigger than minutes and your watch should tell more than time. Start the conversation 844-888-5673 844-888-5673 Credit Card

PRODUCT

JORD watches use only 100% natural wood and we refrain from the use of toxic chemicals to either treat or protect the wood.

For any client that experiences discomfort (itching or rash) on their wrist after wearing a JORD watch, we suggest you stop wearing the watch and consult your doctor.

Nickel Allergies
JORD watches feature stainless steel (304) clasps for those who may have nickel allergies. Please see the below study from the National Center for Biotechnology Information (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9330816):

In 1994, a study of nickel release and allergic contact dermatitis from nickel-plated metals and stainless steels was published in this journal. It was shown that low-sulfur stainless steel grades like 304 release less than 0.03 microgram/cm2/week of nickel in acid artificial sweat and elicit no reactions in patients already sensitized to nickel.
With proper care, your wood watch can be worn for many years to come.

The biggest enemy of wood is sudden changes in temperature and humidity. This means if you leave your watch in a car on a hot sunny day, the high temperature has the ability to swell the wood and cause it to crack. Same with leaving it in the car on a particularly cold day or night, the cold will shrink the wood, putting pressure against the glass and pins and could cause breakage at those points.

Humidity control is also important. Too much and the wood will absorb the water and swell, too little and it will dry out the wood and shrink. Swelling and shrinking increase the possibility of cracking at the time and in the future.

SO, when you are not wearing your watch be sure that it is inside, and also protected in either its original packaging OR in a watch or jewelry box to protect it from an overly wet or dry environment.

Additionally, the best thing you can do for the wood of your watch is make sure it is properly conditioned, protecting the wood from the elements. We recommend Tung Oil or Lemon oil both of which can be found at hardware stores, or online.

Using a soft cloth, pour 1 teaspoon of your chosen oil on to the cloth and then use the cloth over the surface of the wood, buffing slightly. This will aid in keeping your watch clean and conditioned and will increase the luster.
In order to have your watch sized, you can do either of the following:
  1. RECOMMENDED:  Our team can size your watch for you prior to shipment. Simply visit the page of the watch you are interested in buying and click on the "Custom Sizing" link located beneath the "Series Options" section.
  2. Take your JORD watch to your preferred jeweler or watch repair shop to have them size it for you.
Upon receiving your wood watch be sure to note the instruction card provided. Wind the watch at least 15-20 times prior to wearing it. After the initial winding, your daily activity should be sufficient to keep the watch wound, IF worn every day for a minimum of 8 hours.

Lack of sufficient movement or inconsistent wearing of the watch may require additional manual winding. As this is a mechanical watch, quartz watch accuracy cannot be expected. If your watch is consistently fast or slow regardless of proper winding and wearing, and you have surpassed the warranty period, we recommend taking your watch to a reputable jeweler or watch repair store and having them service the watch which should include: cleaning, oiling, and regulating the movement.

Setting Non-Date Models



Step 1: Pull out the crown. Turn crown to move the hands forward (clockwise) to set the time. Set the minute hand approximately 5 minutes ahead of the desire minute marker, and then turn back to the same marker.

Step 2: Push the crown back to the "IN" position.


Setting Date Models



Step 1: When The Second hand reaches the 60th second mark, pull the crown to the "OUT" position.

Step 2: Turn the crown to move the hands forward (clockwise) until you see the date (for date only) or both day and date change (Midnight).

Step 3: For AM time, continue to move the hands forward until the minute hand is approximately 5 minutes ahead of the desired minute marker; then turn back to the same minute marker. For PM time first advance the hands past 12 o'clock midday, then set the time.

Step 4: When the time standard that you are using reaches the 60th second, push the crown to the "IN" position

NOTE: The date will change automatically at approximately midnight. The watch calendar uses a 31 day cycle. Therefore, at the end of any month with less than 31 days, the date must be advanced manually to "1" (See Step 5)

Step 5: For normal date or date displays, pull the crown to the "intermediate" position (one "click"). Turn crown one way until the correct date appears. Push the crown in.

NOTE: The calendar should not be changed manually between 9:00 pm and 6:00 am. As this could cause an incorrect display which must be corrected later.
JORD watches are considered to be splash proof. Normal wear and use can include kitchen activities, a day on the beach, the gym, etc. However, full submergence in water is not recommended both for the integrity of the movement and the wood itself. Excessive moisture exposure can result in a diminished flexibility in the bands wood links. If this occurs, allow the watch to dry for 1 to 2 days to allow the wood links to dry and return to their natural size.
Yes! Jord now offers both watch and box engraving on select models. There is a customization fee of $35 to engrave the backplate of your watch or $45 to engrave the wooden watch box. Company logos, handwritten messages, standard text, and uploaded graphics can all be engraved.

We've created a handy guide which shows each watch in our collection side-by-side.
