I was long-ago very anti smartwatch for no real reason, but as soon as I gave in and got one, I became addicted to it. But over time, I must confess I started to miss wearing something more fashionable that could be better combined with my massive bracelet collection to give my wrist a little more high gloss. I started to look around online for what I might wish to purchase but then Jord stepped in at the perfect moment to help a girl out. Check out my new Jord watch!
My body is not petite so I really prefer mens watches and this Conway design with its dark sandalwood band and burgundy face suits me just fine. I think that deep, shiny burgundy is a gorgeous, subtle accent to the deep chocolate tones in the sandalwood band and I love layering a silver bracelet with it to pick up the stainless steel details on the watch-face. Plus, because it’s made from wood and sustainable materials, it’s incredibly light. Seriously, it weighs next-to-nothing and it blows my mind. What a nice change from all the heavy, designer-y watches out there.
I played around with it a bit and found some other fun ways to style it – using more sparkly silver as well as my brown, leather rope bracelet. I LOVE to accessorize, people, so this is only the beginning!
Jord (FYI – that’s pronounced “Yode”) is based in St. Louis, where they are constantly developing new designs. The watches are are a sophisticated mix of natural, and largely re-claimed materials, combined with quality movements and components. I appreciate that Jord’s team is focused on creating timepieces that are modeled after a modern lifestyle; that value sustainability, efficiency, and experiential living. For a special, more personal touch, you should know that they size every single watch for the recipient and most of the watches’ backplates can be engraved!
Frankly, in addition to just wearing it, the experience of receiving the watch was my favorite thing. The presentation for each is in a humidor cedar watch box and comes with a cleaning cloth and a six-month supply of JORD Preserve: a custom-formulated wood treatment gel with applicator pen. It’s quite elegant.
It gives off a high-end jewelry store vibe, don’t you think? I totally put it under a lamp to catch the shine as if I were peaking in a display case at the mall. I’m a goofball.
