JORD Wood Watches: The Perfect Piece for Your Travels + CONTEST

JORD Frankie 35 Watch

Thinking about ‘where to next?’

One of the biggest (and sometimes stressful) parts to traveling is deciding what I’m going to bring along on my adventures. I always make sure I have the staple pieces such as a pair of jeans, ballet flats, and a couple too many shirts to mix and match outfits; all while trying to pack it into a carry-on suitcase.

When it comes to accessories, though, I usually keep that to a minimum – a pair of earrings and maybe a necklace at most. But I’ve found the ideal accessory to add to my travel packing list that is both practical and stylish.

Frankie 35 series – dark sandalwood and slate

JORD Wood Watches are hand-crafted wood timepieces made from the finest materials. JORD is based in the US and you can tell that this company uses precision and care to provide the highest quality products.

My watch – dark sandalwood and slate from the Frankie 35 series – is simple and modern; not blinged out which is something I dislike in any type of jewellery. I’m really impressed with how my watch looks and feels on my wrist.

JORD, my new travel accessory!

When I’m traveling in a foreign city, I often try to wear non-flashy  items that would normally look appealing to pickpockets. But the simplicity of JORD Watches allows me to feel safe to wear it as I go sightseeing for the day. It’s also nice to be able to glance at my wrist quickly versus digging into my backpack to find my phone in order to check the time. I’m so excited that I have a comfortable, stylish watch that I can bring along on my travels. Now… time for an adventure!

There are so many men’s and women’s watches to choose from, it’s hard to pick my fave! Browse their online shop here and tell me which one is your fave in the comment section below!

    These watches are gorgeous- I’ve seen a few bloggers promoting them on Instagram and, actually, the one that you chose is my favourite. It’ll be nice for you to have a wooden watch in the cold Canadian winters- hope you’re having the best time back home, lady!

    That’s so nice to be writing about this watch. But with cellphone always on my hand, I always forget to wear a watch. Cellphones are too convenient. And for the winter season, I wasn’t wearing any watch at all because it feels bothersome to check in my long sleeves and all:-) Now that it is warmer, I don’t mind wearing a watch again.

    I haven’t worn a watch in a long, long time, but I admit that when traveling in “unsafe” areas, I do feel uncomfortable pulling out my iPhone to check the time. It definitely attracts attention. This watch seems like a good non-blingy alternative.

    That watch looks amazing! I want it but I’m so bad at wearing accessories. I always end up feeling irritated that they’re there and then I take them off after about an hour. Ha! Still I’m entering anyway! The little box it comes in is worth it!
