This Valentine’s Day not only have I been blessed with a beautiful son but my wife took a little time to find me a watch. I have a bit of a fascination with watches, she knows I love to collect them. She had gotten me a beautiful  wooden Jord watch and gave it to me a week early. I must have earned it!

My Valentine’s Day Gift is here


Personally I have never seen a wooden watch, I have heard of them though. I took a little time to check out their website and read about their story.


My wife obviously has good taste as you can tell from the photos. If you want a closer look of my watch, this is the link to it. JORD WATCH


My wife being the every conscious person, she tries to be green, got me one with the Sea Gull movement self winding automatic, meaning there is no battery. The movement  in the watch can be seen on both the front and back of the watch. I was a little skeptical of whether it would keep time if I stop moving, but apparently even a slightly twitch keeps the watch moving, the only time it needs to be reset is when it sits for long periods (according to the website 36 hours….I haven’t really tested that part.)


She knew I would want something elegant yet not too flashy. She picked out one from the Dover Series, Ebony & Copper. First off I must say what many may be asking, What a wooden watch? I thought the same thing. After viewing the site you will see they make several different styles and use many different woods. Many of these watches have a casual look yet they can easily be dressed up and no one would think differently.


I was please to find out it came with a sapphire crystal on the front. Obviously my wife knows how brutal I can be on a watch. I could go on talking about the watch, but I also have to tell you how it came. It arrived in a rustic wooden box and a nice burlap pillow to keep that rugged feel of a wooden watch. I have to admit, I’m a lucky man but I know the watch is to remind me to get home early to her and my son as they are waiting for me to get back from work.
