JORD and I have partnered up to give away $100 towards any watch of your choice! (All entrants will received 10% off while one lucky winner will receive a discount code for $100). JORD (pronounced Yode) is a St. Louis based watch company that specializes in unique hand-crafted wood timepieces. The watches are designed for a modern lifestyle and they use raw material (100% natural wood).
They value sustainability, efficiency and “experiential living.” With a mix of natural, and largely re-claimed materials, they combine each piece with quality movements and components. If a wood watch isn’t your thing, they also offer Apple Watch bands for all series that come in both wood and leather.
“TELLING MORE THAN TIME. 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.” -JORD Watches
Another bonus! They offer engraving on the backplate of your watch ($35) or engraving the cedar humidor presentation box that it comes in ($45). They can pretty much engrave anything; company logos, handwritten messages, standard text, and uploaded graphics.

The Frankie Finish & Care
The natural ebony is hand finished and pretreated with tung oils. The Frankie is splash-proof but should not be submerged in water (3 ATM).
Lemon or orange oil extract is best for cleaning the natural wood. When storing this timepiece, avoid extremely hot, cold, and excessively dry/humid environments.
