The value of a Jord Watches is not in their ability to tell you how much time has passed, but closer you are to achieving your goals. A watch helps you to make each second count, and of course, it can be a reminder of your achievements. While you may also choose to use your watch as a status symbol, it will bring you more value if you give it a connection to important miles tomes to have achieved so far in your life. Moreover, if the watch happens to be unique, it will not be an icebreaker when meeting friendly acquaintances, but it will steer the conversation your way. In that regard let us talk about things you may not know about Jord Watches.
1. Made of Wood
Few watches around the world have casing and straps made of wood. The Jord Watches have a casing that is made of wood rather than gold, or stainless steel, or even silver. That allows you to wear it to any place without attracting attention the same way a gold watch would do.
2. Water Proof
The Jord Watches is made of wood and therefore you should not attempt to immerse it in water. However, a few splashes of water may land on it and that will not affect its performance. The protective polished coating will allow the water to slide off and leave it as dry as before.
3. Effect of Water on the Jord Watches
When you immerse the Jord Watch in water, the water may get into the joints of the casing and wooden strap. Once absorbed, the wood will thicken, which will compromise the movement’s precision. The strap’s wooden pieces will also get stuck and lose their flexibility.
In the Event the Jord Watches aborbs some water, you will need to stop its movement immediately, and give it two or three days to dry. That will allow the wood to regain its original shape and size. However, the watch’s design requires that you do your best to avoid such scenarios. As with any valuable, proper care is needed to preserve this watch’s value and uniqueness.
5. Custom Engraving
The Jord Watch can be customized just for you. When you order, just provide the picture you would love to see engrave on it or the words of your choice. You will pay more, about $35 to get the engraving m on the watch’s back or $45 on the watch box.
If you buy the Jord Watch with a quartz movement, then you may have to replace the battery at some point in the future. In that case, you should visit a reputable Jewelry shop and have a professional do it for you. You may also contact Jord and they will promptly inform you about the replacement timeline and costs.
7. Winding the Automatic Jord Watches
Jord recommends you give the watch about 15 to 20 times of initial winding before you start wearing it. After that initial winding, just wear the watch for up to 8 hours a day. That will be sufficient to keep it wound.
The mechanical Jord Watch has a lower accuracy compared to the quartz Jord Watch powered by a battery. It is therefore not to be used for operations that require high timing accuracy. The value of the Jord Watch mechanical watch comes from its unique wooden design rather than a high accuracy.
9. Jord Watches Servicing
If the Jord Watch is past its warranty date, you may take it to a reputable jewelry shop or repair store and have them service it. The service will include cleaning, oiling, and movement regulation. The best time to do that is when you notice it is running much slower than it used to, or too fast.
The Jord watch’s flagship movement is the JHLS32 Mechanical from Jord, which is a mechanical dual wheel self-winding movement. Its display has a power reserve, minutes, seconds, and hour dial. Its jewel bearing has 47 jewels, and a power capacity of 40 hours. It has a frequency of 21, 600 beats per day and an accuracy of -/+ 45 seconds per day.
Overall, the Jord Watches are unique and true masterpieces. If you love nature and would take every opportunity to share in its natural value, then get this watch. It might just be another valuable accessory to add to your list.
