Precious Family Time with Jord Wooden Watches

Time. Precious Time. Family Time. Time that seems so limited, time that seems to fly by so fast. Time that we waste. We all do, not purposely, of course, but we do.  Hours wasted in front of a computer, days wasted doing, basically, not a lot. This week Dean decided to take a couple of days off work. The bigger kids at school just me, Dean and Elsie for 2 whole mornings. A rarity and something we didn't want to waste. We took ourselves of on a little adventure, making sure we had our camera to remember the little things and Deans unique watch to ensure we were home in time for pre-school!

We ordered Deans gorgeous watch a few weeks ago, after searching the Jord website he eventually opted for this gorgeous Zebrawood and Dark Sandalwood watch from the Conway series. The website advertises the watch as having 'chronograph functionality allows you to tackle your day, down to the last second if necessary' perfect for when you don't want to waste a second of precious family time! Upon ordering your unique to you watch, you print of a measuring tape which ensures your watch is made to fit you perfectly. 

And then, when your watch arrives (with free international postage), you are delved straight into luxury,  from the black gloss box that your package arrives in, to the gorgeous engraved wooden box which holds your watch, to the tweed cushion your watch is nestled into. Everything about the Jord brand just screams luxury and high quality. 

Dean was more than impressed when he saw his new watch, he is a simple man and to be quite honest not a lot other than cars or motorbikes impress him. But everything about his Jord watch impressed him. The presentation, the watch itself, of course, the little details, like the extra links provided, the wood care, the polishing cloth, the discreet drawer on the box that he found by accident the next day, the comfort of this wooden watch, because when I first told him about these cool watches I had received an email about he couldn't quite get his head around how a watch could be made of wood! 

The watch Dean chose costs $229 with free shipping to the UK.

Back to our day of adventure, we went searching for ducks, counted daffodils, ran up and down hills, jumped from walls, played I Spy, ran away from angry geese, spotted diggers, played hide and seek in the trees, we laughed and we smiled and finally when it was time to come home, held hands safe in the knowledge that we had just spend our time the best way we could. 

Family Time.

Precious Time.

Time Together.
