This post is a collaboration with JORD, but all thoughts, photos, and baby chicks are my own.
With my flock of wriggling chicks growing bigger every day, my schedule is about to get a little more regimented. I’ll need to check on the girls in the coop a few times a day, collect eggs regularly before they squash (or eat!) them, and pay attention to the sunset so I can usher them into the coop before nightfall. I figure that’s as good a reason as any to add a new watch to my jewelry box 😉
I have an aqua and zebrawood JORD watch that I loooove so I was thrilled when JORD reached out about collaborating to showcase a beautiful new wood watch design. The Cassia caught my eye, partly because of its Scandinavian design and vintage-inspired dial, which shimmers when the light catches it just right. But if I’m being totally honest, what really sold me was that it comes with this deep, rich, ebony wood watch strap – which matches my new chicks. Yup, I’m that person now. It happened quickly. I recently bought the t-shirt in these pictures because of the feathers. It was actually on clearance for $9, so I went and bought four more. Then I went to a store and contemplated getting a metal chicken lawn ornament. I knew it was possible that I might become a #crazychickenlady, but I didn’t think it would happen so quickly – or that I’d have my uniform on lock already, haha.
Even if I didn’t want to coordinate with my chickens, the Cassia is a beautiful wood watch (and it comes in different, equally striking, color combos too). It has a quartz battery movement with a bezel-free case. You can have it engraved and even get custom professional sizing (so it makes a unique gift).
If you havn’t heard of JORD (pronounced YODE – it’s a Norse word meaning “Earth”), the company creates many styles of eye-catching watches with stunning wood bands. The wood bands feel surprisingly smooth and comfortable to wear. When I first got my aqua wood watch, I wasn’t sure how practical a wood watch strap would be – or whether it would stand the test of time (sorry, couldn’t resist). But years later it looks brand new, even though I wear it often. It makes a statement and no matter what I’m wearing (I could be wearing a chicken on my head), people ooo and ahhh over my watch.
