This is my sister, Lorna wearing a gorgeous Cora – Maple & Silver wood watch from Jord Wood Watches . Lorna said she is “celebrating my birthday during one of the United States’ most popular holidays, St. Patrick’s Day, means taking note of my time. Am I being productive? Or am I procrastinating about many things?”
My sister wrote about this lovely Cora Series- Maple & Silver. Cora is Jord’s first Lady’s automatic timepiece. As you can see Cora’s elegance is grounded by the complex grain in the wood case and band.
I am wearing the CORA, a beautiful maple and silver ladies’ watch. This selfie was a little challenging to take but I did it successfully at the Hotel Beresford Arms in San Francisco.
More about my #JordWatch
1. The crown on the Cora is actually a ‘screw down’ crown so you have to unscrew it before you can pull it out like a normal crown. You should twist it clockwise and once it is unscrewed it will pop out a little bit, then you will be able to unwind/set the time on the watch.
2. To adjust the band, you will need to detach the push pins that hold the links in place. You will need special watch tools in order to accomplish this, I recommend taking it to a professional jeweller or what repair shop to have this done.
3. How to take care of your watch
Wood watches by JORD are produced with all natural and untreated woods. This keeps them hypoallergenic and maintains the true finish of the wood. Because wood is inherently porous, it is prone to dirt and oil. For best cleaning results, mix two tablespoons each of olive oil and lemon juice. Apply a small amount to a soft cotton cloth. Wring the cloth to spread the mixture further into the material and apply to the wood using brisk strokes (this helps distribute the oil evenly).
Wood will naturally develop a patina over time but if you’d like to maintain the original appearance we recommend that you apply a natural coating such as beeswax, butcher block oil, or walnut oil. Regular application can help to protect it against damage and improve the durability of the wood while helping to maintain the moisture balance (prevent drying or cracking).
