Welcome to the first week of Tay's Favorite Things Fridays!
I'm so excited to host this six-week series! I'll be blogging about some of my favorite products and bringing you special deals and discounts too- This watch actually started the whole project, so I have JORD to thank for that.
I love unique gifts; not only to give to others, but also to buy for myself. Some of my favorite pieces are handmade, were found in a boutique or tell a story. It's important to me that each piece of jewelry that I own is in some way significant, expressive, or stands out.
If you go to JORD's "about us" page; you'll notice they have a similar vibe and style to my own little shop. As you know, life is about far more than just material goods, but what you decide to purchase should be a reflection of your own ideals. I appreciate their values because sustainability, efficiency, and experiential living are also very important aspects to my lifestyle.
In the same way my life mission statement is to live less out of habit and more out of intent, JORD feels "moments are bigger than minutes and your watch should tell more than time." I couldn't agree more.
I already have a pair of wood hoop earrings I love, so I knew a wood watch would definitely compliment my style and accessorize any of my outfits.
The Fieldcrest series is my favorite style; it was love at first sight. I have a minimalistic taste in accessories. I prefer simple silhouettes and sleek lines and the Fieldcrest wood watch fulfilled those requirements. I also thought it was interesting how I was drawn the the Sandalwood grains because I've always loved the scent of the tree. I guess I can say I just love it all around! You can buy the Fieldcrest in Green Sandalwood here.
My watch arrived within two days and was packaged so well- I love little personal touches and this company definitely knows how to make a first impression! It was sent inside a gorgeous, and appropriate, wooden box. Within the box, the watch was nestled on the sweetest little pillow. I loved this attention to customer experience: opening the packaging was like opening a little gift.
Before my JORD watch, I owned and wore just one other watch- it's a rose gold beauty from Fossil. I love the color, shape, and size; but that watch is very heavy. I won't wear it in the summertime or when doing certain activities because of the weight. I was pleasantly surprised at how light JORD's wood watches are. The first time I wore mine, I even forgot that I had it on.
This watch is beautiful, eco-friendly, and unique: everything I could ask for in a product. I think it would make an excellent gift for those who "have everything" because even if they already have a watch, they definitely don't have such a high-quality wood watch! The simplistic design and natural materials also make them suitable for a casual lifestyle without the unflattering look of plastic or rubber watches.
If you've made it this far and you're thinking you need one of these babies if your life- check them out! There are 7 different women's styles (men's styles are available as well) made with a few different types of wood; I was surprised that there were so many options to choose from. Shop them all here!
I did not receive financial compensation for this review, although I did receive a JORD Watch at no cost. All opinions are my own.
