My aunt, just diagnosed with cancer again, came upon a big birthday. At the time, I was making good money but not great. I wanted to give her something great not good and so I gave her a watch because for as long as I’ve known her, she collects watches. For some people it’s earrings, for other women it’s shoes, but for my aunt it is watches and the thing is: she’s my hero. So because of that birthday and that gift and my aunt, I began to collect watches too. When we see a cool watch, we talk about it. In the case of these JORD wood watches, I told her over a loud dinner for what was another birthday for her. I thought they looked cool, casual but also chic. After seeing one in person, I was right.
After JORD reached out to me, I realized working–typing and making calls and writing longhand–and playing–going out with friends and baseball games and concerts–all work with my JORD watch. Or better yet, JORD can work and play with me.There isn’t an outfit or an activity or anything that I can possibly think of where this watch doesn’t work. I have fallen asleep wearing it which is crazy because as much as I love watches, I take them off a lot. I put them out as I walk out the door to complete the look and then my wrist gets tired…
Like I said, the biggest issue with my collection of watches is their weight. When I am typing (all day everyday) or sitting at a desk (all day everyday), they are too heavy on my bird-like wrist. I often take my watch off and set it aside. But I don’t have to do that with my JORD watch (and if you think I am just saying that, you don’t know me). It’s light but well made. It doesn’t bother me when I type or I am on the phone. In fact, when I see it out of the corner of my eye, it makes me smile.JORD reached out to me (I am so grateful) in exchange for an honest review. Good thing because I don’t believe in dishonest reviews or dishonesty in general. I chose the Fieldcrest Dark Sandalwood JORD watch because I felt like the dark color lent a richness to the wood but I honestly struggled to decide. I asked people’s opinions. And then I bit the bullet and chose and I am so glad. I can wear it while working, with jeans and a t-shirt to elevate the outfit a bit, or when I go out.
I can even wear it with dresses.
Normally, when I go out, the weight of a watch will force me to remove it and place it in my purse. I am proud to say I can wear this JORD watch all day and all night. It’s my go-to now. There truly is nothing I can’t wear it with and that makes me incredibly glad I have one. Now I have to save my pennies to get my aunt one. I can’t begin to fathom which one I would choose because there are so many great ones. But she is, after all, the one who taught me to collect watches. She is, after all, the bravest woman I know. What I love is that my aunt and I have different styles and yet JORD meets both of us where we are. Like me, each of her days are different which require her to sometimes work in a jeans and t-shirt or business casual and so I cannot wait for the day when she gets to open a box like this:
I was given this watch in exchange for an honest review. I’m nothing if not honest. It’s easy to describe a day in the life with a JORD watch because my days now include this watch. I absolutely love it. Now, my aunt needs one…She is kicking cancer’s butt.
