JORD watch giveaway

Something new and different for me to give away and tell you about.  A watch.  But not just any watch.  This is a JORD watch made of diverse and sustainable wood from around the world.  JORD is actually a swedish word that means earth, soil and land. (Gotta love that.)  And guess what?  They are made in the USA.  St. Louis to be exact.  Yep, just a bunch of friends with an awesome, innovative idea that they put to use.  All natural.  I'm all in.
In recent years, I have gotten away from wearing a watch.  Probably because I always have my phone with me or near me to check the time.  But let's face it.  Watches are more than just about the time.  They are a timeless accessory that is not only functional but totally fun to wear.
JORD watches are one of a kind.  No two are exactly the same because of the natural materials, so each one is unique.  They are super light and also unisex. (I had a jeweler remove links.)   Each watch is presented in a beautiful wooden box which adds to the beauty of this watch.  Opening mine was a true treat.
I'm wearing Fieldcrest in Natural Green.
{Filedcrest :: black}
The awesome peeps at JORD would like to give away one of their watches to one of my readers.  The winner will receive a coupon code valued at $120.00, same price as the Fieldcrest.  The winner may choose whichever watch they would like in the Fieldcrest series or choose to put it towards another model and pay the difference.  The code will also include free shipping.  If you can't see your lovely self wearing one, enter for another!  It's an awesome gift.  Please leave a comment here before Wednesday July 23, 5pm EST, and I'll have the random generator choose a number.  And send your husband, boyfriend, lover, fella, son, friend over to enter as well.  I am smitten with these watches and I think you would be, too.

Enjoy your time!

I haven't worn one in ages either, but have been noticing (and loving) watches on others. I love your bracelets too!

Celeste said...

These are so great. Thanks for introducing us to this company. I have skin that eats metal so I finally gave up on watches over a decade ago. But wood I could wear. And great to know that the links are removable as I have teeny wrists. Gotta go tell some watch obsessed friends about this company!

I've never heard of this brand and now I love everything about it! Thanks so much!

Robin and Kyle said...

That's a beautiful watch. Very nice.

Susan said...

I'm not a watch wearer, at all - gave it up years ago, because of all of these crazy electronic gizmos all telling me what time it was. But these are beautiful. Thanks for drawing my attention to them! One would also make a great gift.

Like you, Leslie, I have gone many years without wearing a watch.My youngest brother passed away suddenly a couple of weeks ago and I gravitated to the watch he had been wearing.After getting it home, I realized that it is much too big for me, so I will keep it as a memory only.That event and seeing this lovely watch has definitely got me thinking of your 'accessory' comment..I'm so in, wow, just lovely!

I love that watch and I have to say, I love that shirt as well. I have a similar one that I am now inspired to pull out of the closet and pair with my hopefully new watch. ;-)

These watches are lovely. I especially like the Fieldcrest in black.

Boston Knitter said...

How lovely! My Fossil watch is in desperate need of cleaning (it's starting to leave some grime on my wrist) and it would be nice to have another watch to wear on days when I'm feeling a little more nature-y and a little less metallic-y.

I swoon! What a beautiful watch! I want one.

jennith said...

These are gorgeous watches, though I'd likely end up giving it as a gift. There's unisex, and then there's too big for my tiny, tiny wrists.

Britney said...

This looks gorgeous. I've looked for a watch to suit my tastes and I think Jord is it.

Stephanie B said...

Those look so awesome!

cyndi said...

I haven't worn a watch in a long time. I used to buy "cheap" watches at Walmart for $5 and when they needed a new battery I just threw them away but that seemed wasteful. So I gave up on the idea of watches. A Jord would make watch wearing a pleasure again.

crazyestonian said...

I always thought of watch as a practical item. You have opened my eyes to watch as an accessory :)

Wow!! So cool!! Thanks for the opportunity to win one!! :)
