Jord Wood Watches – Timepieces Inspired by Nature

As a nurse, wearing a watch at work is a must for me. They have to be functional and hold up to lots of wear and tear, and in the process, don’t always end up really pretty. Sometimes when I go out on a date night or to church, I want to go a more fashionable route and wear a watch as an accessory to my outfit, but the watches I wear to work just don’t cut it. So when I saw Jord wood watches, I fell in love right away with their style- each one is a high quality … …..
