I just love the rustic look of reclaimed wood! When my husband and I buy a house, I even plan on incorporating the rustic look into the modern style that I want for our future house. This watch is perfect because it has that classic look that I love. You know, using something old and creating something completely new out of it?!

I own a few pieces of jewelry made from reclaimed bourbon barrels, so of course, I’ve been admiring these wood watches from JORD for quite some time, and was even thinking about getting one for myself.
