Yes, they gifted me a watch but I've owned another one (Which full disclosure, they sent to me also and you can read about here) for over a year now and have nothing but praise for JORD and their products, if I didn't I would not be talking to you all about them.
JORD, for those of you unfamiliar with them, is a watch company that creates beautiful timepieces out out a variety of sustainable wood and other high quality materials.
They recently started new customized engraving service just in time for the holidays and asked me if I wanted to give it a whirl. And because I love my Fieldcrest so much and don't want to share it with Justin anymore, I decided that I would and I would give the watch to Justin as a Christmas gift.
The particular piece I decided to get for Justin was the Conway (Dark Sandalwood & Burgundy) because it is just this gorgeous statement piece of a watch that would go with anything he is wearing. And there was just something about it that was so attractive and screamed gift for Justin.
In terms of the engraving, if you've been following me for a while you can probably kinda sorta guess what I had engraved... I had "I love you. Everlong." engraved on the back plate. I wanted to have "You've got to promise not to stop when I say when" because that lyric has always been a big part of our relationship, it was in our wedding vows to each other, etc. But the particular piece I chose had a twenty-five character limit. I mean, they have another engraving option where I could have had it done on the side of the box the watch comes in but I really wanted to have something done on the piece so that was always with him. So "I love you. Everlong." was it.
C'mon, that is one sweet engraved gift...
For those of you that wanna get down to the nitty gritty details on their customized engraving service... Like I mentioned above, JORD is offering two options for engraving. You can either do the watch engraving, where they engrave the back plate of the piece for an additional $35.00. Or you can have the wood engraving, where they engrave the side of the cedar wood presentation box that the watch comes in for an additional $45.00. Both options can be done in either block or script engraving. There are character limitations, so you'll have to visit the website to see those. And most importantly, engraving will extend your delivery time by up to seven business days so plan accordingly, customization is not a last minute thing but it is 150% worth it.
In addition to them generously giving me a watch for me to give as a gift, they've given me my very own gift card code to share with all of you. So if you click here you can fill out a form for a gift card (The gift cards are are available on a first come, first serve basis. One they are all redeemed, your gift card will no longer work).
So I hope you get to take advantage of that because these watches are seriously some of the most beautiful affordable time pieces I've come across and they make great gifts for any occasion. My sister's future brother-in-law actual received one from his bride the day of their wedding and he adores it.
If you do use the gift card code I'd love to see a picture of the piece you chose, and if you get the watch engraving what you had put on it or the side of the box.
