Fall has arrived in New England, and I couldn’t be happier! With Fall comes crisp air, pumpkins (which bring roasted pumpkin seeds), apples (which bring apple pies), and of course costumes and lots, and lots of candy. But most importantly, this is the season that brings us incredible fashion! As some of you may have noticed, I am very big on accessories. Scarves, necklaces, bracelets, rings…I love them all. But I especially love watches.
For me, a watch is an everyday essential. That’s why I was so excited to receive a watch from JORD, a St. Louis based watchmaking company that creates gorgeous wooden watches. JORD’s watches are created from a variety of different wood. What I loved most about their website is that they explain, in detail, the different types of wood they use. JORD makes great quality watches, and takes conscious steps to inform the customer of their products. The different wood used to create their watches include:
Ebony from East Africa
Koa from Hawaii
Purpleheart from Solomon Islands
Zebrawood from West Africa
Rosewood from Brazil
Sandalwood from all around the world
Maple from Northeastern North America
Bamboo that was created by gluing sanded strips of bamboo together then machining the new bamboo “boards”.
The watch that I received, the Cora Maple & Silver, is made from maple wood. The wood gives a unique twist from the classic leather watch. Not to mention, the wood detailing is perfect for fall.
The Cora watch is very light-weight, which is perfect for any busy bee that doesn’t want to be weighed down by a heavier metal watch. I would have barely noticed I was wearing it, if it hadn’t been for all the compliments I was receiving. The Cora has silver tones that sparkle and compliment the soft colored maple, creating a timeless, universal piece.
I also love that this watch is automatic, because there is no need to stress about a battery. Just twist and go! This is perfect for me. As a nanny, I am constantly on the go and always have somewhere to be. Sporting events, cooking lessons, school drop offs and pick ups…you name it, I do it. And I would be nothing without my watch! It’s comforting to know that I have a beautiful and dependable JORD watch to help me be at the right place at the right time.
