Gifts for the Man in Your Life: Jord Watches

June 17, 2015 By · 4 Comments

Disclosure: We were sent a Jord Watch for review purposes. All pictures and opinions are our own.

jordwatchAntonio, aka SoccerBoy recently graduated from High School and I was so happy to be able to give him a Jord Watch as a graduation gift (one reason I had to wait to do this post). While most of your teens are all about their phones and not caring about having the time on their wrist that is not him. He constantly looks at his wrist when someone asks about the time and immediately pulls out his phone. He had brought up a few months ago how much better it would be if he could have a watch for when he goes to college/work after he graduated high school so I was already hoping to find him one. Jord Watch wrote and asked if I’d like a chance at reviewing their lovely watches, at first I wasn’t too sure but since I knew SoccerBoy had mentioned wanting one I wondered if they had one in his size. They absolutely did and they had quite the selection once I found his wrist size.

In the photos above you can see the watch arrived in a very protected box, I call it a pandoras box because I couldn’t immediately open it. Not to worry it isn’t that hard I just thought you lifted it up. haha. Inside it is protected by the lovely (tiny) pillow to secure it and it also has a layer of bubble wrap around it so it won’t scratch or bump during its trip to you. Every night he takes his watch off and places it back in the box. We got the Fieldcrest Natural Green Jord Watch to review.

Watch Details:

  • Deployment Buckle with Push Button
  • Scratch Resistant Mineral
  • Citizen Miyota Quartz Movement (2035)
  • Case Width: 39mm
  • Case Thickness: 11mm
  • Lug Ends: 49mm
