JORD Wood Watches Fieldcrest series in Zebrawood & Maple - REVIEW!

Posted on 29 dicembre 2015

Hi everyone!

It's been a while since my last post but it's been a very busy period and writing here on the blog wasn't as quick as posting on Instagram and Facebook (socials on which I have been more active) however, I came back to write and share with you my last post of the year ;) a review of the amazing Fieldcrest "Zebrawood & Maple" wood watch I received from JORD!



JORD Wood Watches
Fieldcrest Series (Zebrawood & Maple) - 129 $
JORD is a brand based in the U.S.,


 "... focused on creating timepieces that are modeled after a modern lifestyle. We value sutainability, efficiency and experiental living. We make our watches for people who don't just have somewhere to be, they have somewhere to go. JORD is run by artists, designers, marketers and minders. We spend our days creating, considering, arguing adn hopefully agreeing. Then we'll scrap it all for the joy of starting new. We have fun is our journey" (Source: www.woodwatches.com)


The models available on JORD's website are many and each timepiece is unique not only because of the excellent design but also because of the grain pattern which is different on each piece.



The one I received is the JORD Fieldcrest Series in "Zebrawood & Maple", a very easy-to- wear and lovely model which is also available in Green Sandalwood, Dark Sandalwood and Maple.

I must say I don't wear watches very often because I tend to use my smartphone but what I've been able to notice from the very few minutes I have been wearing my JORD woodwatch is that it's extremely lightweight and very versatile: you can easily wear it from day to night!

The first thing that surprised me when opening the box the woodwatch came with was the extreme care for details JORD dedicates not only to the watches but also to packaging: the watch comes in a wood box with the JORD logo on top and on the front low side and once opened with a gentle slide movement, the watch appears wrapped around a nice pillow. A wood medal with the letter "J" is tied to a link and can be easily removed.
Inside the box you will also fin a black soft cleaning cloth, extra clasps and the warranty card.

The stainless-steel butterfly clasp is easy to manage, you just need to fold the wood together over the clasp and press down to snap it shut and there are two push buttons on each side of the clasp that you push to release when you wish to take the watch off. Easier done than said! ;)



The Fieldcrest series is unisex and as each woodwatch from the JORD collection, you can communicate the measure of your wrist when buying your timepiece in order to have it custom fit!

Here are some detailed information anout the Fieldcrest series features:


- Scratch-resistant mineral glass

- Deployment buckle with push buttons
- Case width: 39 mm
- Case thickness: 11 mm
- Lug ends: 49 mm
- Band thickness: 20 mm
- Band length: 195 mm


The watches are splash-proof but should not be submerged in water as JORD explains in the "Finish & Care" section which appears in the website, just below the description of the Fieldcrest features.

Maintenance of the delicate wood grain is best achieved with rubbing the strap with some lemon or orange oil applied to a soft cotton clotch. The FAO section on the JORD website also advises that wood can develop a natural patina over time so you can choose to coat it with beeswax, butcher block oil or walnut oil to mantain the original finish. As you can see, despite the fact wood is a "living" material you don't need to pay extreme attention to your time piece.

Christmas is over but if you have forgotten someone important, a JORD woodwatch might be a great way to make up for it!

Worldwide shipping is always included in the price of the watch! ;)
