JORD Wood Watches: For The Man Who Has Everything
(With An E-Card Giveaway!)

Men's Watch
JORD Wood Watches is run by a collective of trendsetting artists and designers who use sustainably sourced and recycled wood to create stunning timepieces that are both functional and conversation starters. In an interview with fellow Ethical Writers Co. blog The Stylish Kind, marketing manager Paul Saitta explains that "(they) want to break the mold of the metal, rubber, or plastic watches and use materials that are pleasing to the eye and environment".
The JORD family is made up of brothers and close friends who grew up together in St Louis, Missouri, and a lot of their designs are named after places in the area as an homage to their ties to the city. Starting at the affordable price point of $129, their designs are crafted by their team in the U.S. and they try to release a new unique design every few months to keep things fresh. 


Men's Watch
I reached out to JORD recently after following them on social media over the last year, and they generously offered to send a men's watch for me to review and feature on the blog. It's no secret that I'm constantly looking for ways to have Andrew on the eco bandwagon with me, but he is difficult to shop for (like many of the men I know) and I was worried that the designs may make too much of a statement for his corporate finance wardrobe. Elena at JORD did a great job picking out the Dover Watch for Andrew, and he  absolutely loves it. For someone who has never worn a watch in his life, that says a lot.

Men's Watch
The Dover Watch in Zebra and Dark Sandalwood is a versatile design that can be dressed up and down, lightweight and comfortable for daily wear. It is a self-winding automatic watch, which means that the natural motion of the wearer's wrist provides energy to wind the mainspring and no batteries are necessary. The natural zebrawood and dark sandalwood is hand-finished and pretreated with environmentally-friendly tung oils for a handsome lustre and waterproof finish, and it has a sapphire glass screen, favored in the luxury watch industry for its clarity and durability.

When Andrew started wearing the watch to work, he received many compliments from his co-workers who noticed his arm candy. He loves being able to glance at the watch for a quick time check when he's sitting in a meeting, and appreciates the attention to detail in the classic-with-a-twist design, with the intricate mechanics of the watch movement on display. JORD has made an honest watch wearer out of him, and I am glad I found the perfect gift for the man who has everything.

The value of a watch is not in being able to tell how much time has passed, but in being aware of the need to make that time count.
