Unique Watches for Moms: Why I'm Loving my JORD Watch (+ a $100 Watch Credit Giveaway!)
Updated: Jan 17, 2019
As a mom of young kids, I find myself getting lost in the moments, the hours, a lot. Despite the best of intentions, we are often running late or falling behind because I don’t want to be holding my phone constantly and it’s easy to get caught up and lose track of time. It was right around when baby Goldie turned one that I realized I needed to start wearing a watch, but I didn’t want anything heavy or clunky that would slow down my busy-mama lifestyle. However, I like a sturdy look. I had trouble finding something that struck the balance -- until I discovered JORD watches.
I'm so excited to be partnering with JORD watches to bring you a review and giveaway of these incredible pieces. I checked out a lot of brands and styles before falling in love with the contemporary take on classic watches from JORD. This sustainable watch brand utilizes woods like maple, bamboo, and olive to create sturdy yet lightweight, environmentally-friendly watches that blend easily with your personal style and your busy life as a mom (or a student, a young professional, a bride, and so on…)
I consider us to be a pretty green family, and that’s one more reason I love these watches. When browsing the website, you can see the origins of all materials used in your watch. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the St. Louis-based company utilizes a blend of natural and largely reclaimed materials. They pair these with high quality movements and components for a sustainable watch that doesn’t just look and feel good, but can be relied upon.
I selected this gorgeously unique purpleheart wood watch because I couldn’t get over the bold color and fine styling of it. I’d never seen a wood watch that color before, and it was a perfect choice for my girly aesthetic (with two little girls in tow, I’m basically dressed like an overgrown boho princess at all times. That’s the only way my kids will have it, and I’m not complaining!).
Of course, it’s not all about the mamas. Many of the unique wood watches by JORD are unisex and there are some intended for men. Something in me really loves the idea of matching your beloved or at the very least “relating,” having watches that are similar. With this collection you can totally swing that without either one of you compromising your unique style.
But even if you’re just shopping for yourself, this is the best collection of womens watches I’ve seen. A lot of companies make ladies watches so delicate and refined, they just don’t work for me. I like something solid on my wrist, something that feels like both a style statement and a sturdy lifestyle choice.
My JORD watch feels like the wrist’s version of a great pair of boyfriend jeans or a comfy-chic moto boot. It’s girly and funky and fresh but also can be lived in. As a mom of two littles, that’s exactly what I need in a watch.
