Also something I thought was a thing of the past? Wearing a watch. Why would I wear one if I can just glance at my phone to see the time instead? Add to that the somewhat-bland, generic appearance of all of my timepieces and it really isn't any wonder that they've all been relegated to the depths of my jewelry box.
I'm now back to fully loving to wear a watch now that I have one that is modern, sustainable, efficient, simple, and distinctively beautiful. Basically, it's hard to not be in love with the amazing designs, intricate craftsmanship, and stunning appearance of the wooden watches from JORD!
I have to admit that in a you had me at hello type of way, I was head over heels with the JORD wood watches as soon as I visited their website. From simple to complex, their 100% natural men's and women's watches are so unlike any that I have seen before that it didn't seem possible to select a favorite.
However, once the Ely in Cherry arrived, I knew that it was absolutely the perfect combination of understated, effortless elegance mixed with just enough of a punch of color to keep my interest.
The Ely is available in four color options — Maple, Black, Natural Green & Maple, and the Cherry that I received — and its uncluttered, clean design truly shows off the spectacular grain of the wood and the overall quality that JORD stands behind.
One aspect of this watch that I liked in particular is the slightly smaller dial and band (in comparison with the rest of JORD's collections) and the recent addition of the date display. I find that I never know the date, so having it right on my wrist has proved to be a big convenience that I hadn't realized I needed!
As the icing on the cake to the stunning looks and impeccable quality of this JORD wood watch, the company offers complimentary sizing with each order.
Forget having to find a jeweler (not to mention spare time) to have links removed, you simply measure your wrist beforehand and, upon arrival, your JORD watch fits perfectly right out of the box!
And once you have this on, it doesn't take long to realize that JORD watches go with everything! The sleek, polished look can easily pair with a dressier outfit; perfectly accessorize a pair of spring capris and a blouse; give a finished appearance to jeans and a tee; and more!
I couldn't be much happier with the style, design, quality, lightweight feel, and sustainable nature that JORD has provided in my life!

Other than the Ely Cherry watch that I was provided by JORD in order to facilitate my review, I was not compensated or enticed to do this post in any way. This review is solely my honest opinion about this incredible product.
