We are a bit untraditional when it comes to Valentine’s Day. We either celebrate it just before or just after to avoid all of those lovey dovey things! I don’t have a romantic bone in my body and I’m terrible when it comes to Valentine’s Day and anniversaries HOWEVER, thanks to the lovely team from JORD Wood Watches– I’ve totally nailed it this year!
The lovely folks gave me a couple of options to pick from but as soon as I saw the Frankie – Dark Sandalwood and Smoke wood watch, I knew it was the one! I still asked for Nicks opinion as to which one he would prefer as I knew that I needed one that would go with all of his work shirts, and thankfully, he had his eyes the same one!
Nicks hobbies are based around wood- longboards and guitars. We ran a longboard store for 5 years and while I was pregnant he started learning the guitar. The JORD Frankie wood watch has the EXACT same wood finish as his favourite ever longboard and is also the same finish that is on the neck of his favourite guitar. I think it was fate!
Our nights and weekends were spent packing longboards and my afternoons were spent lying pregnant on our bed listening to Nick play the guitar- I’ll never forgive him for butchering my favourite song! HOWEVER, every time I look at the Frankie on his wrist, it reminds me of the first 5 years of our history together and it puts a rare smile on my face. Well, would you look at that- I can be a little be lovely!
Nick was given his mens watch as soon as it arrived (which by the way, only took about 5 days to get to New Zealand from the USA) and thanks to the custom fit the folks at JORD did, it was on his wrist as soon as it came out of the box! Since I am not the one wearing it, I asked what he loved about it and well.. I should have made a cup of tea first!
“When I was wearing my silver watch, I would notice it after a few hours into taking an all day training course and my wrist would start to feel heavy. With the JORD wood watch, it is so light and comfortable that I forget I am actually wearing a watch. People always notice when you’re wearing unique things and so I have had A LOT of comments on how awesome my new watch is.
Because I am always running workshops or training courses, my arms are always getting knocked against the white board or desks. The construction on the watch is awesome and I am rather thankful that this watch is super hard wearing so no scuffs or scratches otherwise I wouldn’t hear the end of it! Aside from the colour of the watch which reminds me of a few of my favourite possessions, I am stoked with how big the face of the watch is. It’s bigger than average but not too big so it is way easier to read.”
The presentation of JORD Wood Watches is absolutely stunning! They come in this gorgeous wooden box, tucked in with their own little watch pillow- I want one! Their women’s watches are GORGEOUS! I have my eye on the Cora Series in Koa and Rose Gold. Since they do personalised engraving, he can even get it engraved with something like “Wife, you’re absolutely amazing!” or on the box it could say “You’re the best thing thats ever happened to me and thank you for picking up my socks EVERY SINGLE MORNING!”. Hint, hint hubster!
