I truly believe that everyone needs a great watch that they can use everywhere - from work, to a night out on the town, or on their next trip. I'm not just talking about any regular watch that displays time - that is what phones are for these days. What I'm talking about is the one accessory that makes you feel more put together, the accessory that starts a conversation, is as unique as you and will take you places!
Let me introduce you to this wooden watch which has won me over with its unique yet classic design. Coming from Switzerland, I have a special relation with watches and am very picky with watch designs (let's be honest, I'm picky about pretty much everything). I like large watches that make a statement but I also like classic designs. This Jord wood watch checks both boxes and with a bit of luck, you can win $100 towards your own watch at the end of this post!
I must admit, I had never heard of the concept of a wooden watch but I love it! The wood is extremely comfortable to wear and is not only perfect for people who love a unique accessory but also for people with sensitive skin. Unlike leather watches which can cause skin irritations (yes that's a thing and it runs in my family), plastic watches which wear out too fast, or metal watches which really pinch your hair, this wooden watch is amazingly comfortable to wear.
By far my favourite feature of the Dover watch is that it's a mechanical watch. Mechanical watches, or self-winding watches, use a spring instead of a battery to show the passing of time. Meaning, you don't have to change the battery - ever! Instead, you wind it up to run. It's such a cool aspect of the watch and I'm fascinated watching the springs work.
Mechanical watches are the oldest form of watches and originated in Europe in the 17th century. You really can't get more classic than wearing this mechanical wooden watch which will transport you right back in time like this one did for me when walking through the streets of Silverton, Colorado.
If you're not as much into watching the springs of the watch work, Jord has a wide variety of self-winding wooden watches with different and unique designs as well as watches that are battery operated. They range from modern men’s watches to dainty women’s watches, can all be engraved, and come in this gorgeous wooden box.
I would like to think that I fit right in while walking through town, passing by a horse and carriage, and exploring old mines – all while wearing my Jord watch.
