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!
