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

Golden Camphor

(Cinnamomum camphora)

COLOR & APPEARANCE

The color of Camphor can be highly variable depending on the species and growing conditions. JORD selects stock that is light brown, with shades of grey & olive green, creating a golden hue. Paler sapwood isn’t always clearly differentiated from the heartwood.

SOURCE

Southeast Asia

GRAIN/TEXTURE

Camphor grain can show a variety of patterns: straight, interlocked, and wavy can all be present in a single piece. The texture is uniform, with a high natural luster and a soft buttery feel.

SUSTAINABILITY

Camphor is not listed in the CITES Appendices or on the IUNC Red List of Threatened Species, although a few related species are listed as vulnerable/endangered due to a population reduction of over 20% to 50% in the past three generations, caused by a decline in its natural range, and exploitation.
