Spring has Sprung with JORD

(Enter disclaimer text) JORD has teamed up with me to tell you about a women’s watch that is going to have you wanting spring around all year long!

JORD Watch

Finally. Spring has sprung! The skies are bluer and the birds are singing. And the trees? They’re blooming and budding. Doesn’t it feel great to finally be at this point in the year? I know I’m ready to dive into all that spring has to offer.

Spring brings so much promise and shine. I’m reminded to bring out more color in my wardrobe (putting away those navy and black and bringing out my pale blues and corals). I’m spending more time in the fresh air, savoring moments.

You can’t help but to feel connected to the nature around you, right?

This spring, I’m feeling inspired by the weather and my new JORD women’s watch. It is made of natural wood, a constant reminder to me of the natural beauty that abounds this time of year.

JORD brings closeness to nature with every piece of their collection of unique natural wood watches for women and men. These watches make statements and are good for dressing up or dressing down. Features like scratch-proof glass, no battery (they automatically self-wind if you wear it often enough), and water safe (as long as you don’t submerge it) make it easy for a mom or dad to say yes to wearing around their ‘lil ones. (The watches also come with a 12-month warranty, just in case anything should go wrong.)

Gifts for Men: JORD Wood Watch

Enter disclaimer text This post, Gifts for Men: JORD Wood Watch, is one such review post.

We all know that guy. The one who when it comes time to buy a gift for, you really don’t know what to get. You try really hard to find unique gifts for holidays like Father’s Day, but it is nearly impossible. Please tell me it’s not just me.

This year, I had some help finding Greg a Father’s Day gift. The JORD Wood Watch is one of those gifts for men that is just right for that guy who has everything. I say this, and my husband is the one who broke his last watch five years ago break-dancing so…you really need to trust me.

Okay, I just admitted that my husband broke his last watch yet I gifted him a wood watch for Father’s Day. That’s right. When I saw the Ebony & Rosewood watch in the DOVER series, I just knew it was something he’d actually take care of and wear with pride. His first reaction was that it would be reserved for big things (like weddings – except the break dancing sessions, funerals, and poker nights), but he’s come to LOVE his watch and wear it around the kids and when he’s admiring all the hard work he’s put into his garden (but not while working in it!).

While I was browsing the watch options (and trying to pick just one…), I came across this value of JORD:


The value of a watch is not in being able to tell how much time has passed, but in being aware of the need to make that time count. Moments are bigger than minutes and your watch should tell more than time.

That’s why I picked the watch I did. It is sleek yet contrasting, a watch the will stand out and be a reminder to Greg to live in the moment he’s in, making the moments count. Watching the movements of the gears between the black background and crystal clear glass, I hope he’ll make big moments happen with us for a long time to come.
