We were sent a JORD wood watch to review and as I’m not really a watch wearer (merely just an admirer) I thought this honour best go to Miz who actually really liked the look of these wooden watches for himself. Read on to find out a little bit more about this unusual watch brand in Miz’s own words.
I really hope no one is expecting an elaborate and technical review, highlighting the pro’s and con’s of this watch. I’m less of a watch wearer and more the type of person who wishes he wore watches, were it not for having spent all his spare income sipping warm beer at an empty show full of tiny out of of town bands who really need to practice more.
That being said, this watch seemed ideally suited not only, to the “manly” (let’s not go into why that’s a complete stereotype) side of me that drools over nice watches, but also to the side of me who doesn’t want to be caught dead wearing a super nice watch at a punk show; and yes I am completely aware of what that says about me and my insecurities.
Basically, this watch is incredibly nice, without screaming “Hey look at me I spent a huge amount of money on my watch”, I like wood (sniggers), so I was won over pretty quickly, it sat nicely on the wrist once I got the size adjusted to fit me, it runs perfectly and doesn’t weigh a ton. I would suggest you all run out and buy one, but then I’d start seeing them pop up at punk shows, eventually every “scene-kid” would be wearing them and due to my before mentioned insecurities I would have to stop wearing mine, everyone knows it’s not cool when it’s cool.
So yea, that was Miz’s ‘review’ of this watch, basically it’s nice and he likes it. I should totally get him to write here more often, but he spends so much time writing lyrics I’m not sure he has time writing non-musical stuff. JORD watches ship from America, but have an excellent turnaround time and come beautifully packaged, a perfect gift for all sorts or people.
