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

Ebony

Ceylon - (Diospyros ebenum)

COLOR & APPEARANCE

Found in East Africa, ebony wood has a high saturation of color and a natural glossy sheen. Due to the depth of tone the typically straight grain is not easily made out, though it is fine and uniform in texture. The hardness of ebony can make it challenging to work with so tools are routinely checked and sharpened to reduce pulling and poor edging.

SOURCE

East Africa (Mozambique)

GRAIN/TEXTURE

Grain is typically straight or sometimes irregular, with a fine, uniform texture. Has a high level of natural luster.

SUSTAINABILITY

This wood species is not listed in the CITES Appendices, but is reported by the IUCN as being data deficient.
