Weekend Adventures: High Point University


This past weekend, I took a trip to my alma mater with my Jord watch. I graduated from High Point University this previous May and feel lucky to live close enough that I’m able to take day trips. As much as I love my job and new city, I can’t help but miss college!! High Point University gave me the best four years and I’m forever thankful. I also enjoy going back and meeting up with old forever friends.

Recently, Jord Wood Watches gifted me a watch of my choosing! After wearing the same basic watch for all of college, I was ready for an upgrade. I decided upon the GORGEOUS Zebrawood and Navy watch in the Frankie series and waited eagerly. I was pleasantly surprised when even the packaging the watch came from was high quality. The watch sat on its own tiny pillow in a hand-crafted, wooden box.



Wearing the watch makes me feel elegant and mature. It might sound a little ridiculous… but I even felt more confident being back on campus with my new accessory. I kept receiving compliments on the watch! One friend liked it so much, she even tried to convince me to trade the Jord watch for her apple watch.



The watch has a minimalistic and unique look. It’s stunning deep Navy face is eye-catching and easy to read. At first, I was hesitant about a wooden watch –as I’ve always bought leather– but LOVE the watches fit and look on my wrist. Jord offers watches from thirteen different types of wood. Zebrawood is a wood native to West Africa. Zebrawood of gives the watch a “striking grain contrast and exceptional finish”.

 While the watch is splash-proof, you should be careful about not fully submerging the watch in water. Other cool features about Jord watches include the option to get the watch fitted before purchasing and custom engraving. The service I received from Jord Watches was extraordinary as well. They offer any help you may need and a speedy delivery.

“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.” –Jord Wood Watches
