JORD Wood Watch Giveaway: For Guys and Girls

Jord Main

I have to admit something a bit embarrassing— I haven’t worn a watch since college. I just got out of the habit at some point and didn’t go back. And then the lovely folks at JORD Wood Watches sent me one of their incredibly lightweight, beautifully constructed, sustainable wood timepieces (the Fieldcrest style, pictured here in maple), and I’ve hardly taken it off since. It works so well with my style, and it’s size is a perfect accompaniment to a variety of other bracelets and cuffs—as you can see, I like to stack them.

And I’ve noticed that I’m less attached to my phone (something I’ve been working on) since I don’t look at it for the time anymore—a quick glance at my watch instead of digging my phone out, and then getting sucked in by a new email—I am more mindful of the world around me, which is something I’m aiming for!

  1. The time of day I like most changes from day to day. Last week, work was slow and I got to sneak in a 30-45 minute nap in the morning. The cats both slept with me on the couch and no phone calls interrupted me. Last night, however, I got the dishes and the garbage all done, everyone had been sleeping for hours, and I relaxed to a few TV shows before bed. Both were just as great.

    I think perhaps the evening wins out since I enjoy it more often. I am more productive, there are more interesting TV shows to watch, and time to settle.

    Thanks for the chance to win one of these fantastic looking watches.

  2. Wow, I have been looking for a watch and wasn’t happy with any of the options. This one is perfect! I love the first fifteen minutes of the day, before I get out of bed. My dog quietly watches me sleep and the second I invite her up to bed, she snuggles in next to me to smell my hair and get a belly rub. It guarantees a good start to every day.

  3. I like dawn because it is when the sun is rising and it’s pretty

  4. I love 5:00…the end of the work day!

  5. I love early mornings, before everyone else is awake 🙂

  6. Samuel Preveda says:

    I love the cool evening, velvet skies and shiny stars!

  7. I like the Fieldcrest the most because it has classical round design – it’s perfect for work and leisure. I absolutely love it in Maple.

    • And you know what? The best time of the day is early in the morning when you can see the sun rising from the horizon. It makes the nature sparkle in a unique way.

  8. Such a gorgeous watch! Worthy to be featured in my blog (if i’ll get it, hehe)

    My favorite time of the day would be 7:00 in the morning and onwards. For me its a start of a new day, a time to stretch, go for a short walk, to feel the wind blows, and to stuff myself with the yummiest breakky ever. On this time also the sun would greet us all with energy and passion reminding us to live life actively and keep on moving!

  9. Sunrise is my favorite time of day. I’m usually running at this time and no matter the time of year the sound of birds, the beautiful sky, and the overall serenity of the moment never fail to humble me! It is one of the few times I feel alone in the world, a time to quietly reflect. This is juxtaposed with the excitement in the air at the beginning of the day 🙂

  10. Very cool watches! Love them!

    My favorite time of of day is that universal early morning moment when all coffee drinkers take their first sip. There is a quiet camaraderie (and if among others there is sometimes a mutual head nod)… and for at least a few moments of the day, we all mind our own business. It is a quiet moment, personally and mutually enjoyed across the globe.

  11. I love the morning!

  12. Renee Richardson says:

    I absolutely love between 2-4 am. The house is quiet and I love the solitude. Thanks for the awesome giveaway 🙂

    I’m a night owl so my favorite time of day is after dark, usually in the early morning hours between midnight and 2am. When I was young and lived in a rural area I loved it because I could step outside and see millions of stars in the night sky. Now that I live in an urban area I don’t get to see many stars, but I still enjoy the midnight hour because it is usually quiet and peaceful and a perfect time to write, read, or reflect.

  14. Laura S. says:

    I am so attached to my watch! but I must admit I need a new one, and I love this wooden design. My favourite time of the day is late night, after everyone else has gone to bed.

  15. My favorite time of the day is around 6:00… because that’s when I am ending my day at work! Thanks!
