In an attempt to cut down on my smartphone use, I have been on the hunt for a watch. I haven’t owned or worn a watch in several years. The truth is, I have relied primarily on my phone for the time and sometimes hear that siren call and open it for a minute. Which usually turns into several minutes mindlessly checking email, social media and more.
As I try to be more mindful, calm and present for my family, myself and for the sake of my pregnancy, I have been shocked at the difference wearing a watch has made. For such a simple change, the shift in my day-to-day has been distinctive.
I have been wearing my Jord wooden watch for a while and I truly love it. It is lightweight but sturdy, versatile enough to go with any clothing I’m wearing and it even looks nice strewn on my bedside table. It’s somehow a perfect blend of styles for my personality. The model I have – the Fieldcrest in Zebrawood and Maple – is contemporary, warm due to the natural materials used and yet still sleek and minimalist. I wear it every day and it never feels out of place.
The whole line-up of Jord watches for women and men are reasonably priced, durable as far as my testing has gone, and very beautiful. They come in a gift-worthy wooden box that can be used to store the watch daily or repurposed elsewhere. I’m using my Jord box to store small items in my office.
If you’re interested in getting your own wood watch from Jord, hang on! Go to this page before the end of October and you’ll get a special coupon for $20 off a wooden watch. And psst…a little birdie told me that one of you will also be randomly chosen to get a $75 gift card! Ahh, so exciting. I’m rooting for you!
Disclosure: I received a Jord watch from the company gratis for the purposes of this review.
