Time. We use it to countdown to vacations, to capture a moment and to keep ourselves moving forward. Sometimes it feels like time drags on forever, other times it flies. Timing is everything in teaching, which is why I always wear a watch.
When I saw this wood women’s watch, I knew it would be the perfect accessory for teaching. It helps me keep track of when it’s time to pick up my students from specialists, when to end Language Arts groups and when it’s time to go home! Watches have become an essential part of my life. As a teacher, I plan everything in increments of time, which also carries over into my personal life. I always need to plan and know exactly what time I need to be somewhere and how much time that leaves me to get ready. Therefore, a watch is a necessity in my life!
Why I Chose This Jord Women’s watch
My style is classic by nature, and I tend to stick with neutral or earth-tone colors. However, there is something about rose gold that I love. It’s feminine and is complementary to many classic colors. The golden Koa wood paired with the rose tones makes this watch beautifully spectacular and pairs well with white, black and fall earth-tone colors.
The second reason I chose this watch is for the wood. I always love adding a unique accessory to my outfit and the Koa wood adds the perfect touch. How often do you see someone wearing a wood watch? It’s a piece that will remain timeless, but also get a lot of interest. I had five different people notice and comment on my watch in one day. It’s that good!
I am fascinated by how this watch works. It is self-winding and I geek out over the fact that you can see the inner workings of the watch. The cut-out window on the watch face allows you to see the gears at work. On the back side, you see all the gears- how cool is that?! Not only does the watch look nice, it also creates a visible thinking opportunity for all who take a gander. Even my engineer husband examined it for a long time and couldn’t get enough of this watch!
With the holidays right around the corner, now is the perfect time to start shopping for your significant other and adding to your own wishlist. Jord makes wooden watches for both men and women. I recommend the Dover series for your husband or boyfriend. For all my ladies, the Cora series is my watch of choice. However, Jord makes all sizes and styles of wood watches, so there is something for everyone!
