When my phone battery dies the other day I didn’t know what to do. I was out shopping and had to keep asking strangers for the time. I thought about Spring and warm weather finally coming our way. I had always worn a watch, but now I’ve gotten into the habit of just checking my phone. I spent some time thinking about how wonderful it would be to not be a slave to my phone. So, it was perfect for me when JORD the makers of wooden watches asked me to review one of their stylish watches. My husband was jealous. He looked at their men’s selection and loved the idea of wearing a wooden watch. (I made a mental note for a future gift idea!)
First of all the website was easy use and navigate. That is something that I look for when I’m buying products online. JORD had fantastic imaginary and descriptions for all their models. I picked the ELY in Maple. Although JORD watches can be sized in many locations, you can actually have it sized before your order ships. I had this service performed. My watch was actually a tad small, but since JORD sent me the extra links I was able to bring it to my jeweler and it have it perfectly sized. I measured my wrist as 6 inches and should have allowed for another 1/2 inch due to the way the band closes. My jeweler shook his head at me and said, “My son just bought one of these watches. Wood!” I had to laugh. He admitted that it was a nice watch.
Personally, I found a great freedom in wearing a watch again. I’m looking forward to NOT having to carry my phone during the Spring/Summer months and just being able to enjoy the time with my family. It’s so tempting to check your Facebook, emails etc when you have your phone. Plus, I love the look of my Ely JORD wooden watch. People just seem to strike up conversations with you. “Hey, is that made of wood?” Seriously, for someone who has problems with small talk this has opened up a whole new venue of conversation. ( So, much better than staring into my phone.)
My JORD wooden watch is well made and stylish. I had trouble choosing a model. I picked the ELY Maple because in my mind it would go with everything. It’s the perfect accessory for the busy mom.
JORD offers watches for both men and women. The prices are moderate and the styles are timeless. I’m enjoying both the beauty of the watch and the time I spend away from my phone. It’s been a win-win for me. Check them out!
