Yes, it’s me, and yes, there’s a bit of irony that the topic of my first post after a short hiatus from my site is a watch since time has been the scarcest and most precious commodity in my life over the last few months. I’ve settled into my job and I am striving to maintain a healthy balance between my career and the rest of my life.
I am excited that JORD reached out with the opportunity to feature a one-of-a-kind wood watch. I chose Cassia in zebra and ivory; it’s made from natural zebrawood (all the details on the watch are here). After receiving my watch, I feel like I have a reason to wear a watch again!
Prior to receiving the Cassia, I realized I haven’t been wearing the watch I had as often as I used to; I guess this could have something to do with carrying my phone with me everywhere I go. I’ve seen wood eyewear and jewelry, I feel that these looks can come off as having an earthy or organic feel. But as you can see, while the styling of my Cassia is traditional, it has a modern look to it. It may sound cliché or as if I’m stating the obvious, but what I love the most about it is that it’s truly a unique women’s watch.
After learning more about JORD, I appreciate the design details of their timepieces. In deciding what watch is for you, I think you approach it just like other accessories or clothing and consider the occasion, color, and function. Above all though, don’t take fit for granted. How the watch feels on your wrist will determine how you feel when you wear it, so take a moment to measure your wrist and be sure you get the correct size.
JORD’s design details aren’t limited to their watches – I was impressed when opening the package and seeing the beautiful wooden box my watch was shipped in. It made me realize you can feel great about giving a JORD timepiece as a gift be it for a special birthday, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, graduation, or even as a gift for your wedding party. When you find the right timepiece, do it right and get the watch or box engraved and share a personal message with your special someone.
From now until April 15th, JORD is offering the chance to win a $100 off code and is offering 10% off just for registering. Follow this link for all the details.
Note: In full transparency, when my Cassia arrived, the band was not properly connected to the bezel and it needed to be repaired. I sent JORD a message, they promptly responded, and the entire process was effortless. So, not only can you count on getting unique style and design, you can also count on getting treated right.
My thanks to JORD for partnering on this post!
