This May, DH and I will be be married for 10 years and together 15. It’s amazing how far we have come. We began as a summer fling, something that was to end when I left for university in the fall. The more we spent time together, the more our relationship solidified. As the months flew by, we decide to do the long distance thing during our stint at university. It was hard and we hit some rocky patches but those bumps pulled us tighter together rather then causing us to drift apart.
After university, we bought our first house and saved up for our wedding. I remember it as if it was yesterday. The warm breeze on the air, surrounded by our family and friends, my dad on my arm and my best friend waiting at the end of the aisle.
Flash forward ten years, we have moved twice, changed jobs and added three beautiful children to our family.
Fifteen years is along time! That is many birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas, and other special occasions together. I have bough him electronics, sporting, equipment, books, music, etc., but for this anniversary I wanted to buy him something very special and very unique to celebrate this very special occasion
JORD – (Swedish) – earth, soil, land
Jord was derived from our desire for a timepiece that modeled our modern lifestyle. Sustainable, efficient, simple, and influenced by experiential living. Each watch is designed with natural elements in mind. The wood is not just an aspect of the watch but it is the main feature. Designed to ensure each watch is as distinctive as its owner.
Our style is guided by a deep appreciation for natural elements and modern design. Wood is not just a component of our watches, it is the main feature. The intricacy and multiplicity of the woods we utilize in our designs insure that each watch is as distinctive as the owner. Jord is a collective of artists, designers, and seasoned watchsmiths. Every watch series is planned with the expectation of delivering visible craftsmanship and unyielding utility.
My husband owns a very expensive watch that he earned for an amazing performance at work. It is a watch he cherishes and is proud of. When I first saw the Jord watches, they screamed his name. Strong and dependable but down to earth and a thing of beauty, the exact way I would describe my husband. The internet does not do it justice! When I received my Jord watch in the mail, I was amazed by its beauty. It looked like a piece of art in the box and I was almost afraid to disrupt it. Once I took the watch out, I marveled at its craftmanship. The soft smooth wood, offset by the mechanical features provided contrast and functionality. The light weight nature made it feel like it was apart of you when on your wrist.
Although our anniversary isn’t until May, I couldn’t wait to share this watch with my DH, so I gave it to him early (not unusual for me!). He loved it! He thought it was the most unique watch he had ever seen. The weight of the watch makes it easy to wear and very functional. The two tone colours make it very rich looking and appeal to both his work style and home style.
If you are celebrating a special occasion, like our ten year wedding anniversary or want to reward a significant other (or yourself) for a job well done, I highly recommend JORD watches! Beautiful, individual and made of wood!
