I haven’t worn a watch in years.  Not since I first started running and wore my interval timing watch like a badge of honour and a rite of passage to the ‘Runner’s Club’.  But, as an interior decorator, my running watch just didn’t suit my ‘work attire’.  So I stopped wearing a watch because I just couldn’t find one that was ‘me’ enough.

And then wood watches arrived on the scene.  One of my friends posted her new watch on Instagram and I was smitten.  So when the opportunity to work with JORD appeared on my horizon, I was all in!  What’s not to love about the beauty of the wood grain and the classic styling?

This watch is perfect.  It compliments my style and my wardrobe very well.  Everything pairs well with wood, it’s like using wood in an interior.  And since I try to dress myself like I would a room ( don’t ask, I find it much easier to pull a room together than my wardrobe ) a wood watch is the perfect fashion accessory. I know, I know, sounds crazy but its true.  I love the dark wood paired with the black face – the perfect combo!

I wear my new watch everyday and it gets noticed.  It catches people’s eye and when they find out that it is made from wood, real, actual wood, they are astonished!  Yes, it blows my mind, too, that something as hardy and yet fragile as wood can be made into something so unique. It is s show stopper, and that’s kind of fun, too…I like wearing something that is different and has a neat story to it and this watch certainly fits that bill.
