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

Rosewood

Brazilian - (Dalbergia nigra)

TIMEPIECES THAT FEATURE ROSEWOOD

COLOR & APPEARANCE

Brazilian Rosewood can vary in color from a darker chocolate brown to a lighter purplish or reddish brown, with darker contrasting streaks. The black streaks can sometimes form a unique grain pattern that is sometimes referred to as "spider-webbing" or "landscape," very similar to Ziricote. Lighter yellowish sapwood is clearly demarcated from the heartwood.

SOURCE

Brazil

GRAIN/TEXTURE

Brazilian Rosewood has a uniform, medium to coarse texture with medium-sized open pores. The grain tends to be straight, but can occasionally be interlocked, spiraled, or wavy.

SUSTAINABILITY

This wood species is in CITES Appendix I, and is on the IUCN Red List. It is listed as vulnerable due to a population reduction of over 20% in the past three generations.
