Recently at a blogger event, I had the opportunity to learn more about JORD wood watches. A St. Louis-based company, I fell in love with the natural design elements of JORD watches and the simple beauty of the wood.

I personally have been wanting to get a watch for a while. I used to wear one at all times, but I had fallen out of habit several years ago and began relying on my cell phone to get the time.
In an age where virtually everyone has a cell phone or other electronic device attached to their hips at all times, watches almost seem to reflect a bygone era. JORD watches also reflect the beauty and craftsmanship that you don’t often see in today’s mass produced consumer economy.

I was so very excited when I learned that I would have the opportunity to try out one of the designs. I chose the Fieldcrest style in back. The watch is made from a deep brown wood and has a black face. Since I seem to have black in virtually every outfit, I thought that this one was a great choice!
The package arrived beautifully in a wooden box. It has an easy clasp closure for a quick on and off.
I thought the watch worked splendidly with today’s look that blends natural fibers and textures, with a pop of citrine, one of my favorite colors. My clutch is from another St. Louis designer, Cameo de Bore.

I would wear this outfit for a casual weekend outing.
Are you a fan of wearing a watch?
