Reflections on Time with Jord Wooden Watches

As this wild, curveball of a year comes (thankfully) to an end, I’ve been reflecting on the value of time. There is nothing like being diagnosed with a life-threatening illness to make you appreciate how precious life is, but also how important and valuable your time and energy truly is. So cliché, I know. But all clichés are rooted in truth, amirite?

Because of my recent battle with cancer, reminders of time hold extra special weight for me this holiday season. The last time I partnered with Jord, my time looked very different. Who I spent my time with, what my day to day looked like, the way I value my time - all that has changed.

This stacked sandalwood and olive wooden watch has helped serve as a physical expression of the fleeting nature of time. I’ve been given the gift of more time on this earth, so what could be a more fitting token than this unique wooden watch from Jord? Watching the bright gold hands move over the pearlescent face of my Hyde watch is a subtle and simple reminder that life ticks by faster than we realize.

The Hyde has an understated elegance that feels right at home with designer accessories and cozy sweaters. While my Frankie Jord watch feels perfect for an everyday retro look, the Hyde adds a little extra glam to any holiday outfit. I’ve paired it with a plaid midi skirt, comfy sweater, designer belt and over the knee lace up boots - a look that’s perfect for holiday festivities.

Jord men’s and women’s watches make for thoughtful gifts during the holiday season but I also challenge you to give the gift of time all year round. Do you have a friend who could use some timeliness in their life? (Like me - I’m always running later). Or perhaps you have a loved one who is going through a similar health struggle and would benefit from a little ‘extra time’ as they set out on their journey. No matter the reason, a Jord watch serves as a reminder that time is precious and slowing down to appreciate it is the greatest gift of all.

If you want to give a Jord watch to a loved one or perhaps give yourself a little “extra time” you can enter to win $100 from Jord here. All entries will receive a 10% discount code to use towards a watch of her or his choice! Contest ends 12/30/18 at 11:59p CST.
