Years ago, I stopped wearing watches. There wasn’t a single watch on the market that really spoke to me anymore, so I gave up. If the watches I saw weren’t outdated, they looked like they were some NASA apparatus that soon would beam me to another planet. If I wanted to know what time it was I had to dig into my pocket, find my phone, and see what the clock on my phone said. For some reason, most times I would look at the time, slide my phone back into my pocket and then try as hard as I could to remember what the time was when I checked it. Back out with the phone, this time trying to pay attention to the time, and instead answering an email, a text message and checking the weather. It looks like it’s going to be a nice day after all. See what I mean?
Now that I have a school age daughter, time is of the essence. I have to be ready to help her pick out clothes, brush hair, and eat breakfast. I have to know when there are “five minutes until we have to leave”, a popular phrase in our house, and I have to be there for pickups, after school programs, lunch dates, field trips, plays, dinners, it just never ends. Where I was once tired of looking at my watch, I now am getting tired to staring down at my phone, only to get distracted and find 20 minutes that I didn’t have completely wasted after being distracted by the phone itself.
Wood Watches by Jord happened to pop into my life exactly at the right time. I found a watch that seemed to fit exactly what I was looking for with its sleek design, classic look, yet totally unique. Though they have many watches to chose from at Wood Watches by Jord, I found the one that fit my sensibilities perfectly, The Fieldcrest.

It’s light as can be, and the wood really has a good look and feel to it. Much better than a clunky metal watch and lightyears beyond tacky rubber, Wood Watches by Jord stepped in to make a watch that is exactly what I was looking for.
