Watches have been around since the 16th century and for good reason; being able to easily tell time at any point of the day is crucial without fumbling around trying to find a phone or looking for a clock. One would think with today’s modern technology that the wrist watch would be dying out and ultimately one day disappearing altogether, but the wristwatch is still thriving and surviving despite technological advancement because they’re more than just a way to keep track of time, they’re also a fashion statement!
I stumbled across JORD Wood Watches and was intrigued by the intricate mechanical designs of some of their pieces as well as the watches being made out of 100% natural woods like maple, bamboo, zebrawood, cherry, blackwood, koa and sandalwood. You can tell that each piece had a lot of thought and time go into the designing process. They’re so classic yet industrial-looking, almost like they came out of the 19th century, especially the Dover pieces which are my husband and my faves.
