Disclaimer: This post is in partnership with JORD, I received the product for free but the opinions are my own.
One thing I told myself at the start of the year is I would “age” up my wardrobe. Meaning I would start to dress to reflect my job. I’m a senior technical lead for a healthcare IT firm working in downtown Minneapolis. One thing I swear makes any look more professional looking is a good watch. Over the years I have tried to get watches, but ultimately always stopped wearing them typically due to my metal allergy. About two years ago, I was introduced to JORD Watches which are crafted with wood not metal for the main material of the band. I wanted to get one in the worst way but couldn’t justify the cost, so when they offered to do a collaboration I was beyond excited.
Before I get into the watch, I got from JORD Watches, I thought I would share a little bit about their history.
JORD Watches is a company from St. Louis. They value sustainability, efficiency an experiential living. JORD is ran by artists, designers, marketers, and minders. Who focus on creating timepieces that are modeled after a modern lifestyle. Two of their mottos really stick out to me:
- “We make our watches for people who don’t just have somewhere to be, they have somewhere to go.”
- “Moments are bigger than minutes and your watch should tell more than time.”
And you can see that reflected in their watches. Plus, I love the organic touch to the watches, it’s unique and makes a statement. There were several styles I was tempted to get, but I ended up going with the style Frankie in ebony and gold ($189). Frankie also comes in the following combinations: Dark Sandalwood & smoke, Zebrawood & Champagne, Dark Sandalwood & emerald, Zebrawood & Navy, Koa & Ash, and Purpleheart & Plum. I love a black accessory so it probably comes at no surprise I would get a watch to reflect that. Plus, the gold is just makes it look timeless, sleek, and could go with any other accessory or outfit. It’s a beautiful & subtle statement piece that doesn’t overwhelm your entire outfit.
I would recommend this as a gift especially if you know anyone that really enjoys organic materials or if you love sleek and refined natural designs! The watch also comes in a beautiful wood box that can be used to store other accessories as well. It’s like two gifts in one! If you’re interested you can find more JORD watches for women here and men here! I’m probably going to get another one in a lighter wood tone since I really love this accessory.
