So, what’s a watch? Why do people buy watches?
Time is of the essence. We’re stressed for time. We’re worried about being late. Time is money. [ Read more here! ]
According to Wiki, “A watch is a timepiece, typically worn either around the wrist or attached on a chain and carried in a pocket.”
Wristwatches are the most common type of watch used today. Watches evolved in the 17th century from spring powered clocks, which appeared in the 15th century. The first watches were strictly mechanical. As technology progressed, the mechanisms used to measure time have, in some cases, been replaced by use of quartz vibrations or electronic pulses. The first digital electronic watch was developed in 1970.
Now, Business Insider says, “DEAR APPLE: We Don’t Want A Smart Watch Because The Classic Wrist Watch Will Never Die!”
“We’re all extremely attached to our cameras, our phones, our computers, our iPads, and I think there’s something charming about owning something analogue,” Stephen Puvirent, associate editor of the online watch publication HODINKEE, told us. “I’m going to replace my iPhone sometime in the next few years. But a really high-quality watch I can wear and enjoy on a daily basis.”
Now, we know the big boys Rolex, Cartier, Harry Winston, and A. Lange & Söhne; but what about the new kids on the block? The “new kids” like Jord.
JORD watches are designed to take people back to nature and away from today’s metal & rubber. We want to challenge the norm by making unique time pieces as a focal point for everyday fashion.
There’s always a story behind every beginning of something great. It was the same for Jord.
Have you ever wondered, “What does your watch say about you?”
This simple question sparked an all-night, red-bull fueled session that ended in the purchase of “World of Woods In Color” by William Alexander Lincoln. Apparently, this was a true story…
He wondered, “What if we could create watches made from diverse woods from all over the world? What if we could combine various grains and their natural colors to create a line of watches that ensures every watch is truly unique?”
With that came the birth of Jord, and ever since, they’ve become obsessed with using natural materials to offer a unique fashion flare.
Jord wood watches are one of a kind, premium quality time pieces, hand-crafted with sustainable materials from all over the world.
JORD, telling more than time…
Thinking of getting a Jord? You should, cause I did.
The Ely series is our elegant, small-face design. This is that kind of watch that makes you grin for no apparent reason. Light, sexy, and compact design makes this a popular, everyday watch. There are no numbers on this watch other than the date (but we’ll assume you already know how to tell time).
I love it, totally. And I’m considering the Cherry coloured one.
