When you love intensely, you do not notice the passage of time. It is as though you anticipatorily enjoy the unending enchantment of eternity. And so you need a timeless watch to record the moment – the Jord Cassia wood watch will be there to keep track of the dimension of time for you.

Dartmouth College holds personal and sentimental memories for me. It is the alma mater of several family members, including the patriarch of my Irish heritage, my grandfather. When Eleazar Wheelock, the founder of Dartmouth, brought his library to Hanover in 1770, his 300 volumes consisted mostly of religious tracts, bibles, and primers. Today I am in the Baker Library, which can accommodate 500,000 volumes. There is something romantic and time-stopping about vast libraries. Here too the Jord Cassia wood watch becomes essential: a quick glance at my wrist records the moment and brings me back to the present. In fact, that is what I will have engraved on my Jord watch: “Stay in the present moment.” The present moment is where learning happens…where love happens…where life happens. Jord’s engraving service allows you to customize your watch or its cedar box with words that are meaningful, heartfelt, or even funny. Whatever it is, let it be said with love.

In choosing my Jord watch, I was drawn to the Cassia with its domed Aegean blue glass dial. The deep blue is a beautiful contrast to the Olive wood band. Cream and yellowish wood tones are streaked with dark brown and black flecks. Olive wood has a wild and exotic grain, evoking thoughts of far-flung travels and dreamy adventures. Standing in this library surrounded by volumes spanning eons of history, literature, and the sciences, I will let myself be caught in the vastness of time before I peek at the Roman numerals to bring me back to the present.
