Whew! The Holidays have come and gone, and we're already into the new year. I don't know about you, but the Holiday season tends to wear me out! Not only do we celebrate Christmas, we also celebrate Sophie and Xander's birthdays right around this time of year. Of course there is tons of shopping and cooking and visiting with loved ones....It gets so hectic around here that the time seems to go by so quickly.
If you're like me and relaxing now that Santa has made his way back to the North Pole and life has returned to normal, I hate to burst your bubble.... Valentine's Day is right around the corner! (Don't you hate how these things just sneak up on you?)
That's right! It's time to start thinking about Valentine's Day gifts for that special someone. Sure, you can always run out and grab some flowers and a box of chocolates and easily fulfill your romantic obligations. But, if you're like me and love to give beautiful, unique gifts that are sure to WOW that special someone, I have a GREAT line of products to tell you about!
Jord Wooden Watches are expertly crafted using all natural woods. You won't find any plastic or rubber in these beautiful timepieces! There are several stunning styles to choose from, including mechanically driven watches that allow you to see the inner-workings of the watch like the one below, and there are also dual wood watches and even watches made from bamboo, which is one of the most sustainable materials on the planet! (Yes, these watches are eco-friendly!)
Here's a bit of information about Jord. I think you'll find this brand to be as fascinating as I do!
About Jord :
It's about time someone delivered an unconventional answer to age-old wrist candy. JORD watches are designed to take people back to nature and away from today's metal & rubber. We want to challenge the norm by making unique time pieces as a focal point for everyday fashion.
So what does your watch say about you?
This simple question sparked an all-night, red-bull fueled session that ended in the purchase of "World of Woods In Color" by William Alexander Lincoln. True story...
What if we could create watches made from diverse woods from all over the world? What if we could combine various grains and their natural colors to create a line of watches that ensures every watch is truly unique?That was the night JORD was born...
Since that time, we have become obsessed with using natural materials to offer a unique fashion flare. Our wood watches are one of a kind, premium quality time pieces, hand-crafted with sustainable materials from all over the world.
JORD, Telling more than time...
My review of the Fieldcrest Black Wooden Watch :
The generous folks at Jord are very excited about their high-quality, sustainable watches. They sent me one of their popular styles, the Fieldcrest Black to check out for myself. This watch arrived with lightning speed, and came beautifully packaged in a spiffy looking box that's suitable for gifting.
When I opened this lovely little box, I was immediately impressed by the sheer natutral beauty of the Fieldcrest Black. Oh, and by the fact that it came wrapped around a silken "pillow" with the Jord logo on it. I happen to love extra special touches like this. You can really tell a company takes pride in their work when they pay such close attention to detail like this.
The Fieldcrest Black is gorgeous and wonderfully unisex in design. The watch face is a decent size without being bulky or clunky. (I really dislike watches with gigantic faces...Makes me think of Flava Flav for some reason. Oops, I think I just gave away my age!) The Fieldcrest offers Citizen Miyota movements. Stainless steel hands and hour ticks are complimented by vivid wood grain face.
The single action locking clasp is very easy to operate and keeps the watch securely on your wrist. I tried shaking my wrist around vigorously to see if the clasp would come undone, and I was pleased to see that it remained secure. By the way, if you wildly shake your arm around, your kids will probably think you're insane and retreat, wide-eyed, to their rooms.
I absolutely love the wood-grain detail in this watch. As you can see, all of the natural beauty of the woods used to craft the Fieldcrest Black have remained. The wood itself is very smooth and feels nice against the skin, too. There are no jagged edges or rough spots. Splinters will definitely not be an issue while wearing a Jord wooden watch!
Overall, I am very impressed with my Fieldcrest Black Wooden Watch from Jord. I have worn this watch for the past week and have found it to be very comfortable to wear. Please note: Jord watches are designed to be splash-proof, but they are not waterproof by any means. So I usually take this off to shower or do dishes. I have not had any issues going outdoors wearing this watch, even in the snowstorms we've been having this past week or 2 in NE Ohio. It has even held up well and kept perfect time in the horrid "Arctic Blast" we've been experiencing. It's funny, really....The pipes in my house froze, the battery in my Mercedes died, but the mechanical workings of my watch went completely unaffected!
So if you're looking for a high-quality, unique gift for that someone special this Valentine's Day, definitely take the time to check out Jord Wooden Watches. They have something to suit every style, and would make an ideal gift for men and women alike!
