Happy Friday YUMMs! I've said on here probably a million times that I used to work in retail. Well, I worked a for a major department store chain in their fashion jewelry department. The department was separated into four different bays (cash wrap counters). There was the designer jewelry bay, sterling silver bay, costume jewelry bay and the watch bay. Since, I was the youngest and had the best eyes, I was often put in the watch bay because you need a good set of eyes when you're removing and adding links to a customer's watch. Long story short, I have a bit of a thing for watches.
And for the past couple of weeks my wrist game has been on point thanks to the lovely folks of JORD Wood Watches. They reached out to me a while back and asked if I'd be interested in trying out one of their watches. After checking out their selection, I was like, "Umm...of course!!" For starters, I've never owned a wooden watch before and secondly, I loved their designs. So, let's jump right on in to this review.
For my JORD review, I decided to go with the Black & Maple Sully from their men's line. There's just something about the look of big faced watches on a slender arm that I love. Also, it's no secret that my vision is awful and I try to reduce the strain on my eyes as much as possible. I think it goes without saying that since men's watches have bigger faces, they also have bigger face numbers and that makes it easier for me to tell the time.
The Sully also features a cut out bezel, deployment buckle with push button, scratch resistant minerals, Citizen Miyota Quartz Movement and is splash proof, but not made for "complete submergence in water." Besides all of that, what I loved most about this watch is the overall look. The contrast of the dark and light wood tones makes this watch an eyecatcher. And the lines on this watch are just as clean as those of any metal watch.
While the Sully has a bit of a classic feel, there's a non-traditional edge to it as well. It's a little bit flashy without being too overtop. You don't need to pile on bracelets. Nope, this watch commands attention all on its own. Also, you can dress this watch up or down in terms of outfit choice. I decided to style an outfit that was somewhere in between. Southern Bell Casual Chic is what I'm calling my look that I put together.

Even from far away, my Sully watch stands out. You can easily see that it's two toned. And I have to say that it looks amazing paired with my outfit!
In the picture above, I shed my faux fur vest for a more toned down look and my Sully still looks awesome! I'm completely in love this watch and have nothing but good things to say about it and JORD. The Sully retails for $139, which in terms of the quality and craftsmanship of this watch is a reasonable price point in my personal and professional opinion.
