I love watches. I think it stemmed from reading Caddie Woodlawn as a little girl and seeing her fascination with her father fixing timepieces – from clocks to watches. She ended up loving to work with them too; I think of it like I do knitting. That soothing, redundant place you get to while you’re creating/fixing. So now, I usually won’t wear a watch unless I find one I love and that feels really comfortable to wear all day.
I don’t know if you all have heard of JORD watches, but I hadn’t until a few weeks ago. I found myself on their site, having serious watch lust, as I looked over their wooden choices – all sustainably made. They have watches for both men and women, and honestly you could switch some between the two and it would work for either gender.
I’m now the proud owner of their Sydney Series brand – the Cherry and Mother Pearl. Bella asked for the small pillow immediately – because obviously we haven’t read Caddie Woodlawn to her yet so why would she care about the watch? So besides the fact that this watch is something you can wear with almost anything, and keep forever, it has a:
- Sapphire Crystal Face
- Seiko Quartz Chronograph Stopwatch Movement (VD54)
- Screw-down Crown
- Swarovski Crystals
And? For just $10 they’ll custom size it for you before it ships.
And YES international friends! They’ll ship to you and it’s not as much as a house payment! ::praise hands::
Things I love about it:
It’s so, so smooth. All the edges and sides are just perfectly smooth.
Each one is made uniquely so they all have slightly different looks – even with the same wood used.
The face is clear to read, it’s easy to set, and it’s sturdy. I don’t have to worry about it catching and snapping on something.
