Truth be told, I am a sucker for being on time. I’ll happily boast that timeliness is one of my giftings (guilty of setting three alarms in five minute intervals). Invite me over? I’ll prioritize being early, even if it means sitting in a driveway until it’s a socially acceptable to walk to the door. Funny enough, for how much weight I put on punctuality, I’ve never been a watch kind of gal. Perhaps I’m the only one, but I just never did get the whole watch craze. Was it a right of passage into adulthood? Was I still swimming in post-college not a girl, not yet a woman realm?! Haaaalp! I am positive the last timepiece I owned was hot pink, plastic, and made in the 90’s. I’ve consistently adored several high end watch brands, but have never owned one while #adulting.
Much to my delight, JORD Wood Watches showed up and helped reveal what all this timepiece hype was about. For some, watches are simply a statement piece. For others, an essential accessory to keep them on track for the day. For JORD? Their watches are as unique as they are beautiful. Each timepiece displays a mix of sustainable materials, seasonless styling, quality in *clap* every *clap* darn *clap* detail, and wearable practicality. Using a variety of woods as the foundation of their pieces, such as acacia and bamboo, sets JORD apart from the overly saturated accessory market. Their timepieces are not only sustainable, but exceptionally lightweight while remaining sturdy.
If you’ve been around here long enough, I’m sure you’ve noticed I’m not exactly a glam and glitter kind of gal. Simple styling with intriguing patterns is my preferred aesthetic. When it came time to select a watch, kindly gifted by JORD, I was immediately drawn to the Frankie 35 in Champagne and Zebrawood. For a funky pattern lover like myself, the zebrawood design was a must!
Beyond the unique aesthetics of my watch, I was assured JORD’s timepieces are crafted under careful evaluation pracices and hold to ethical standards:
“Our watches are manufactured in China in a facility that we manage. We have a team on site who follow production and are in charge of quality control, as well as a team who works specifically on prototyping. Our designers are here in St. Louis and after the initial drawings, specs, and materials are chosen, our team in China evaluates the design, considering production and long term wearability, makes whatever changes are necessary, and builds out samples. Prior to putting a new design in full production, several of the JORD partners will fly to China to oversee the final design and approve the materials.”
I was personally assured that JORD Wood Watches are made under ethical standards in China. The workers who produce JORD watches receive a fair wage, fair work hours, as well as equal vacation hours as the JORD employees in the USA!
