My Wood Watch from JORD

Happy Christmas everyone!
Christmas isn’t really celebrated here in Thailand except in Christian churches and homes. Anyway, celebrating Christmas isn’t measured on how big your Christmas tree, or if you’ve hung the Christmas stockings , mistletoe , lanterns or turned the Christmas lights on. It’s also not tested on how big , how much and how many gifts have you wrapped. True celebration of Christmas depends on the condition of your heart. Is your heart filled with unspeakable joy as you ponder the true meaning of Christmas—the precious gift of our Savior and Lord who came to fulfill the Heavenly Father’s plan of salvation? This JOY compels us into festive mood. It inspires us to spread the Christmas cheer by decorating our homes, buying and decorating Christmas trees, singing Christmas songs, doing a generous act and giving gifts. Christmas reminds us to always spread joy, kindness, beauty and love.

Speaking of GIFTS, I received something special from JORD:

Jord creates extraordinary watches- wood watches! Wood is the main feature of this watch.

Jord sent to me one of their classic women’s timepieces, FIELDCREST SERIES Maple ($120).

The Fieldcrest Series is produced in a classic midsize. The monochromatic wood face, bezel, and strap serve to showcase the intricacy of the wood grain. Designed to be androgynous, the attitude of the wearer is the final elemental design to this timepiece.

The intricacy and multiplicity of the woods Jord utilizes in their designs insure that each watch is as distinctive as the owner.

 

 

 

Features:

  • Deployment Buckle with Push Button
  • Scratch Resistant Mineral
  • Citizen Miyota Quartz Movement (2035)
  • Case Width: 39mm
  • Case Thickness: 11mm
  • Lug Ends: 49mm
  • Band Length: 205mm
  • Band Thickness: 20mm

 

 

Each JORD watch is designed to be splash proof but is not intended for complete submergence in water.

 

 

I totally love this watch. It makes my look easy yet classy! It’s a practical accessory for active preschool teacher like me. I move from one classroom to another so I need to be wise in managing my time. Also, the large watch face helps telling the time quite simple even with poor lighting inside the classroom.

 

 

I could wear this watch alone or with arm candies to make the look bold, playful, or sexy depending on my mood , my style of the day or on what statement I want to convey.

 

 

It looks heavy but in reality it’s very lightweight. Though this model is recommended for women, it could be worn by male, too.  My hubby is interested with this watch when it came with a large wristband  but because I also like this watch, I look for a jeweler to customize the size of the wristband to fit my small wrist. The jeweler find this piece very unique and interesting. It was his first time seeing a wooden watch. He was interested to even get one for himself!

 

Special thanks for my dear hubby, Joseph, for taking these beautiful photos.

If you’re interested to own this wood watch, view the entire watch collection at Wood Watches at Jord.

AS YOU THINK, YOU WILL BECOME

Let me share to you what my father shared to us during one of our online chat: THOUGHTS ARE SEEDS; WHEN PLANTED, THEY WILL REPRODUCE THEIR OWN KIND.

My T-shirt that Do the Talking

When I buy T-shirt, I usually chose prints that show or say something what I feel or believe in like this: I had the chance to design my own shirt courtesy of Hicustom.

It's my weapon of choice in order to share what I believe in without saying a word. In other words, I let my shirt do the talking. I wear … Read more»
