“The value of a watch is not in being able to tell how much time has passed, but in being aware of the need to make that time count. Moments are bigger than minutes, and your watch should tell more than time.”
I begin this blog post with a confession.
I love watches. I really, really love watches. And by “really, really love,” I mean I’m obsessed.
I can’t remember the last time I went somewhere without a watch on my wrist. It’s not that I always need to know what time it is … I just find a sense of comfort in knowing it’s there … and in knowing that there’s still plenty of time ahead of me. When I read the above quote on the website of JORD Wood Watches, I knew they totally understood me.
Truth be told, I’ve been coveting the wood watches from JORD for awhile now. So, when JORD reached out to me about a partnership, you know I jumped at the chance.
Before I tell you about my new favorite watch, let me tell you a bit about JORD, a local company that focuses on creating timepieces modeled after a modern lifestyle. JORD values efficiency, experiential living, and most importantly to me, sustainability … which means I don’t have to sacrifice the Earth for a stunning timepiece. JORD uses a number of sustainable woods — such as acacia, bamboo, and maple — to make their gorgeous watches.
I chose the zebrawood and navy watch from JORD’s Frankie 35 series, and as soon as I put it on, I fell in love. As you can see, it’s absolutely beautiful, and in the short time I’ve been wearing my JORD watch, I’ve received a ton of compliments on it. It’s also incredibly lightweight so it feels fabulous on my wrist as well. It’s truly a statement timepiece.
JORD makes a variety of women’s watches and men’s watches, though many of them would look great on either a man or a woman. JORD watches can also be engraved to add a personal touch. I would definitely recommend a JORD watch for anyone … and if a new watch is on your wishlist or on the wishlist of someone special, today is your lucky day!
