When you think of accessories, stacks of rings, an arm full of bracelets, or dainty necklaces immediately come to mind. But there’s a jewelry piece that’s iconic yet doesn’t surface to the front of your consciousness right away. And that’s none other than the watch!
Believe it or not, the smallest attention to details make the biggest difference when it comes to dressing up, and this is especially true when accessorizing. This is why I was so excited when JORD Watches reached out to me regarding their classic wooden timepieces, which are timeless yet minimal.
Contrary to the misconception of watches being outdated in this digital age, they’re actually some of the most classic and timeless accessories that are not only functional, but are a representation of who we are and who we want to be. Read on to see why timepieces last a lifetime and why you need them right now!
1. They’re an Accessory That Will Never Go Out of Style
Although it’s common to check the time with our cell phones in today’s digital age, watches will never go out of style, especially in the business world that I work in! While you can definitely take out your phone to take a quick glance at the clock, it may be considered a bit rude and jarring in a traditional corporate environment, especially if you’re in a meeting with senior executives.
That’s why it’s so important to have a chic yet minimal watch that’s understated, as it’s not only a functional accessory that allows you to conveniently check the time, it’s also a fashion statement that allows you to add an air of sophistication to your ensemble.
2. Fashion’s the Most Powerful Art – It’s Movement, Design, and Architecture All in One
Run by artists, designers, marketers, and minders, JORD Watches is focused on creating timepieces that are modeled after a modern lifestyle. With values of sustainability, efficiency, and experiential living, they make watches for people who don’t just have somewhere to be, they have somewhere to go.
One of their best-selling designs, the Cassia in Ebony and Sable, is minimalism at its finest, transcending the simple categorization of a watch. The uncomplicated face allows focus, the streamlined shaping offers style, pushing you towards your purpose. Your time is your own.
With an intelligent design that pairs with classic styling, the Cassia watch showcases a full Roman number concave dial, which is beautifully reflected in the domed sapphire glass. Made with a band interlaced of metal and wood, the Cassia Ebony & Sable is the statement piece that matches seamlessly with every ensemble.
3. It’s a Reflection of Who We Are and Who We Want to Be
Most importantly, though, the value that stuck with me the most about JORD Watches is the way they cherish time. JORD Watches believes that the value of a watch is not in being able to tell how much time has passed, but in being aware of the need to make that time count. Moments are bigger than minutes and your watch should tell more than time.
With our busy lives and schedules, we may forget to really enjoy the moments in our life, to really live in the presence and to cherish every minute. Time is something that never stops, whether we want it to or not, and though it may not cross our minds all the time, it’s important to remember that time is limited.
This is why timepieces last a lifetime – they’re a constant reminder that while time is infinite, the time that we have is finite, and we need to appreciate and cherish all of the time that we have. Because time is a gift.
We have to use every minute of it wisely in order to show the world who we are and who we want to be.

And before we end today’s post, here’s one of my favorite quotes about time recently:
“Forget yesterday. It has already forgotten you. Don’t sweat tomorrow. You haven’t even met. Instead, open your eyes and your heart to a truly precious gift; today.”
