You regular readers of J'adore le Décor know that I jump at any opportunity to help you create chic, sophisticated, boutique-like living spaces.  Strong quality, and attention to the details result in a home that is totally YOU.  

We dedicate so much time to creating beautiful dwelling places.  Shouldn't our personal style be an extension - a reflection - of how we live?  I believe it should.  Of course, the trick is to make it look effortless.  JORD timepieces make this possible. 
JORD blends high quality Swiss movements with luxurious modern aesthetics.  So when JORDselected me to feature one of their timepieces, I was excited over the opportunity.  I chose to feature the Frankie 35 Zebra-wood Navy women's watch, which arrived beautifully packaged.  The watch itself is strikingly handsome.  To take a closer look at it click here

After taking a few moments to admire this unique and cool watch, I suddenly realized how perfectly it matched the boho, traditional style of my home.  I even have a zebra wood veneered wine cabinet!  Not only that, but just like my home, the watch is fitting for a man or a woman.

The wood grain on this one-of-a-kind timepiece is clearly of the highest quality, which made me curious about its origin. After viewing the JORD website I learned that zebra-wood is generally harvested from West Africa (Congo).

If you've read my About Page you know that I have a strong connection with French-speaking transplants to the Chicago metropolitan area.  Many are residents of West Africa.  Having said that, I became concerned about promoting a product that might contribute in some way to the harm of my friends or their families.  So I contacted JORD Wood Watches with a tough list of questions.

To my great pleasure and relief, I learned that:
  • JORD timepieces are recycled mainly from furniture remnants, sourced from furniture warehouses all over the world.  
  • No forests - in any place in the world - are harmed in the production of these watches.
  • Only damaged trees, or those brought down by natural causes may be used as sources for production.
  • Each timepiece comes with a 12-month warranty.
  • While the movements are constructed in Switzerland and Japan, all components are handcrafted, assembled and produced in St. Louis, Missouri USA.
  • Shipping within the U.S. is free, and $20 internationally.
  • New designs are added every few months, so their look always stays fresh.
I am absolutely fascinated with this watch, and am thrilled to be able to present a brand to you that embodies the principles that I often discuss on this home decor blog:  strong quality, smart re-purposing, and high-end finishing.
