Jord Works with Natural Elements to Create Beautiful Moments in Time
Jord artists use wood as their canvas of choice carving expertly crafted unique timepieces that appeal to individuals who want modern simplicity combined with a timeless natural beauty. We all know the four elements of western culture are: earth, air, fire, and water. These four elements were believed to be essential to life. However Taoism has five elements, each one superior to the next in turn. These elements are wood, earth, water, fire, and metal. So in their superiority level metal conquers wood, wood conquers earth, earth conquers water, water conquers fire and fire in turn conquers metal.
In this respect, Jord craftsmen are also conquering wood my making beautifully crafted watches. Each watch embraces a different variety of wood, giving it its unique appearance and the Jord artists contain the knowledge to be able to work with each variety of wood to turn it into an alluring finished product. Woods like Koa from Hawaii with its red tones, Zebrawood from West Africa with its pronounced growth ring patterns, Maple from Northeastern North America with its lighter tones, to Ebony from East Africa with its dark almost black tones, must each be handled differently so as not to damage the wood. When craftsmen truly enjoy their craft, it shows in their finished product. Jord produces both men’s designer watches and watches for women.
I had the opportunity to review one of their stunning ladies watches recently. The watch arrived in a beautiful hand-crafted wooden box that is a keepsake in itself. Inside I found my watch wrapped around a stylish pillow. What a magnificent display for women’s watches to reflect the image of the brand.
My watch was from the Frankie series with a gorgeous Purpleheart wood sourced from the Solomon Islands. This wood has a natural purple color that has to be seen to be believed. The large plum colored face with gold-toned display covered with sapphire crystal glass, make this watch equally glamorous with jeans and sweater at the game or at a black dress party. This watch has a Swiss Ronda Normtech Caliber 763 movement and hands for hours, minutes and seconds. The band has a deployment buckle with push buttons for easy open and close feature. After wearing this attractive timepiece I received numerous compliments from individuals who appreciate beautiful unique artwork. Most people had never seen a wrist watch made from wood, myself included.
This watch has a slick style all its own and is a creative gift for just about anyone. It would make a great birthday or anniversary gift for the woman who appreciates being different and likes to set her own style. A leader in the fashion arena.
When looking for cool gifts for that woman who has been bitten by the travel bug, this watch is just the thing for her travel and adventures. Especially when she understands the value and comfort of a well-worn pair of jeans but still likes to be trendy.
This wrist watch is for the woman who treasures the beauty of mother earth and values sustainability and natural resources.
