Review: JORD Frankie Wood Watch for Men


My review of the Frankie series Zebrawood & Navy men’s wooden watch from JORD.


Every year I tend to buy my Brother-in-Law something edible or alcoholic for Christmas. I don’t think he minds at all really, but this year he has an extra special treat.


When I was contacted by JORD and asked to review a wood watch from them, I knew straight away who would love it. I let him choose the watch that he would like and he chose well in my opinion. Here is the Frankie series Zebrawood & Navy JORD men’s watch bathed in a bit of autumn glow from the sun.

When it came to taking photographs of the watch I decided to pop to the beach not far from our home. With the watch being made of wood, I thought it needed somewhere natural to show it off fully. Plus any excuse for an afternoon walk on the beach is fine by me.


As soon as I removed the packaging from our watch delivery, I was impressed without even seeing the watch yet. The JORD watch boxes are really something else. Carrying on with the natural theme they are made of wood, look gorgeous and are quite frankly huge. There is a little drawer in the box to keep any extra links in.


I like that they sent the extra links with the watch. Whilst ordering they ask you for the wrist size of the person you are buying for and the watches arrive sized ready for that person. Just in case of errors in measuring it is reassuring to have the extra links there ready.


The watch was actually sent to us from America but arrived really quickly considering and in perfect condition.

The watch itself is so attractive to the eye. The blue of the face is a lovely pop of colour amongst the warm wood colour of the rest of the watch, which really makes it stand out.


There were several different colours of watches in the Frankie series and even different types of wood. No two JORD watches will ever be identical thanks to the use of wood for making them, not to mention all the different choices and types of wood watches to choose from. I love that as in this day and age of mass production it is harder to be unique.

The face of the watch is big, clear to see and looks great on a man’s wrist. Si who was acting as my model for the day said that the watch was really comfortable to wear. I think he would be tempted to buy himself one if it wasn’t for the fact that he has such a physical job and watches aren’t a viable option.


I really do like this watch and I am hoping my Brother-in-law loves it!

I was sent the watch in this post by JORD for the purpose of review, but all thoughts and opinions as ever are my won and honest.

    Gorgeous watch! My hubby’s birthday at the end of the month. He loves a nice watch, I’ve given him two as pressies in the past and he is always looking for more or asking for another! Wonder if he’d like a wooden one :)

      They really are just the sort of slightly quirky that I like. I think I may need to buy myself a women’s one soon.
