Time is essentially a human invention, where the rotation of the earth has been chopped up into seconds, minutes, hours, days, months and years for the human mind to keep track of, record, note and quantify this journey called life. But timekeeping does not have to be boring or mundane like the proverbial ticking away of a clock in the background. Just like the new year throwing in endless possibilities our way, there are also several exciting options when it comes to jazzing up your time keeping accessories, aka watches. In this day and age of cell phones for timekeeping, a watch not only spells trendy but also timeless elegance and speaks volumes of your take on understated style meets functionality. One such trendsetter is JORD, the company that makes wood watches following sustainable and ethical practices and the result is gorgeous, elegant pieces for your wrists! This post also involves a very generous giveaway, so do read till the end!
As a bona-fide watch lover (I have been wearing them since I was fifteen) and who often wears hers to bed (I am that comfortable with my wristwatches), I was very excited when JORD reached out to partner with me to showcase some of their women’s wood watches. I am showcasing the Reece walnut and navy watch, that came packed in a gorgeous wooden box (see below) , extra band links for adjusting the band and a soft cloth for wiping your watch. The exact link to my watch can be found HERE and the link to all women’s watches is right HERE. The watches come in different dial shapes (rectangular like mine or circular) and the type of wood used is described in the watch details. JORD has an incredibly user-friendly website and customer service and they are thoughtful enough to allow for customized sizing (for people with narrow wrists such as me), and custom engraving as well to gift a watch to that special someone in your life! Best of all, JORD ships free worldwide! If this is not incentive enough, I don’t know what is to get that mouse clicking and starting off on your order. To make things sweeter, there is a GIVEAWAY LINK at the very end of the blog, so do keep on reading!
The watch is a gorgeous piece of work, with a Swiss Ronda Normtech Caliber 763 for precision, sapphire crystal glass (synthetic glass and second only to diamond in scratch resistance strength), the wooden band has a rich patina finish and can be easily clasped using the deployment buckle with push buttons (see photos below for clasping guide).
The watch is splash-proof but should not be submerged in water. I have found the watch to be incredibly light and it looks extremely stylish when worn with casuals, chunky sweaters and in general winter wear which it compliments beautifully with its rich wood finish. I have tried to showcase the beauty of the watch with different layouts and in ways I would incorporate it in my life. Finally, for those of us who are averse to leather but have very few options and are allergic to metal bands, JORD wood watches with their beauty, lightness, elegance and functionality are the perfect answer for keeping an eye on time and looking stylish while doing so. A head-turner and conversation starter, JORD watches are a fresh take on clocking those minutes! And finally, being the incredibly generous souls as they are, there is a HUGE GIVEAWAY for all my blog’s readers! Simply click on THIS LINK to enter a chance to win $100 code for your next purchase and the best part is that every entrant gets $25 after the contest ends (end date 2/12). HURRY!
A big thank you to JORD for partnering on this post. All opinions are my own.
