Talking About Men's Watches, More Than Just Time (and a giveaway!)

Besides a wedding ring, the only other accessory my husband wears is a watch.  I have a tradition to give my husband a watch to mark different seasons in our lives.  

It all started when I bought my husband a timepiece for our 10 year anniversary,  I bawled like a baby in the jewelry shop (just ask my sis-in-law).   While we lived near those golden SoCal beaches I bought Nick a watch that tracked the tides.  It was technically for surfers, but why should they have all the fun.  These gifts are reminders to each other to be present, and to remember what we've learned along the way.

In our newest journey my husband has become a frame builder, and we are shop owners.  I never thought, along with most everyone we know, that we would be carrying on the legacy of our neighborhood custom frame and gift shop, and yet here we are 6 months in.  The process of this journey has been a long time in the making, before we even realized.  It's a lot of fun but also challenging and I don't want us to forget what lead us here.

So now Jord Watches.


"The value of a watch is not in being able to tell how much time has passed, but in being aware of the need to make that time count. Moments are bigger than minutes and your watch should tell more than time."  

Right?

These unique time pieces are made from wood.  This just seemed so fitting.  I especially love it because it symbolizes this new journey in our life.  My husband likes it because it's super lightweight and comfortable, most watches this size are so heavy.  His favorite design was the dark sandalwood with the dark carbon face, different than any other watch he owns.  I love the way it looks on him.

I'm also totally smitten with the wood box and tweed pillow packaging.  They thought of all the details.  And the price point is very nice too.  I've got my eye on this one for myself, just think how great this would look in the summer stacked with some gold bracelets and bright beads.

So now the best part, Jord Watches is giving away a 75$ gift card to one of my readers, just tell them which watch is your favorite, enter to win here.  Easy as pie.  Contest ends 11/06/16.

  2. Traditions? I worked at a jewelry store and people would shop for wedding anniversary gifts. The yearly gifts for newlyweds were always a great start for new traditions. Just makes shopping more fun and traditionally paper is for the 1st anniversary but now the modern gift is clocks! So maybe your shop and blog can meet all the first anniversary needs for him and her.♡♡
