When JORD (pronounced YODE) contacted us, we immediately fell in love with their DOVER Series - Olive & Acacia ( here) for it's light color, steel face, deeply grained acacia and velvet olive wood. JORD makes luxury, one-of-a-kind wooden watches and uses raw materials - which gives their timepieces a natural and refined design. We also felt they looked very "hipster" which is the method we use to judge most things. The more hipster the better. :)
Besides looking dapper on the wrist, this watch looks SO cool up-close! You can see the inner mechanics through it's open-glass face view. Modern and simple - my favorite combination when it comes to style (and my man.)
JORD offers custom engraving and sizing, and we took advantage of both. Rob's watch arrived and fit perfectly. The watch comes in a gorgeous wooden box, with a little drawer for extra links and finishing oil for care and conditioning. You guys know I'm all about presentation - this watch just reads fancy! Everything from the packaging, to the engraving, colors and craftsmanship was above and beyond. It would make a spectacular gift for upcoming Father's Day, anniversary or just because. They also make women's watches, and I have my eye on this CORA Series - Zebrawood & Rosé one here (hint, hint Rob!) You can shop their women's selection here.
For our personalization we wanted something fun - (I told you guys this is the year of the funk!) While I love the idea of meaningful dates and initials, we wanted this watch to remind us to keep our hearts and time with wanderlust and adventure - in life, parenting, and love. Our engraving reads:
"a pirate's life for me"
This JORD watch now carries lots of extra memories, as it ties into a few different aspects of our lives.
First off, it's fun right?! Haha - so there is that, but there are also a few other reasons we love this phrase. It's connected to Rob's lifelong membership to "the lost boys" (a group of guys that are the best friends a guy and gal could ever ask for.) They rock. Good friends are the best.
Second, while most of you are probably familiar with this song from Disney's Peter Pan, (yo-ho!) it also carries connection to Rob's life passion - which is photography and his business name - Man Overboard Images.
Lastly, Rob is a the most wonderful father to our two kids, Noah and Coco. He is the fun in this family, and I like to refer to him as the captain of this ship. (He deserves 100 watches!) It's pretty amazing to get to be with the love of your life. In our minds, becoming a parent doesn't mean you have to grow up - it means you get to become a kid again. We are always in awe - watching the kids experience things we have done hundreds of times before - but experiencing it now through their eyes. Here's to making those precious moments count.
I love a good watch, and a classic JORD timepiece makes a great gift for any occasion. Choose a unique design, and add in your own personal message of love they will carry with them forever.
Father's Day will be here before you know it! This is the perfect way to give something special to that person in your life.
