About Time: JORD Watch Competition

Time is an obsession of mine; or saving time, to be more precise.

I find it difficult to watch TV or play games (like Sims 4!) that I used to do all the time, by the way, without feeling guilty and thinking that I’m wasting time. I feel I could be spending my time more effectively and do something useful, make something or cook and clean. That’s exactly why I started blogging, so that I can document everything I was doing and have a sort of ‘hub’ for my ideas, sharing my projects so that others can do the same.

Recently, I started listening to a podcast called S-Town, which begins to document the doings of this clock maker who lives in a small town in Alabama, USA. Although the podcast began due to this clock maker revealing a murder that was covered up in his town, the story evolves and becomes so much more than that.¬†Without ruining the story for you though, the reason I’m mentioning the podcast is because I was interested in his fascination with time. Being a clock maker, he was attuned to seeing the smallest of details in a clock’s mechanics but that skill was also very much reflected in his view of life and the world. He explored how humanity kept track of time before a clock was invented and therefore studied astrolabes which are said to tell not only time but ones place in the universe.

I also think it’s fascinating and think that it can really become an easy obsession to wonder about our place in the world as every second passes. I will leave you with a few of my favourite time quotes:

-Time is the longest distance between two places – Tennessee Williams

-Time moves slowly but passes quickly – Alice Walker

-Time is precious so waste it wisely – Unknown

    Love this watch, it looks beautiful. I’ve not worn a watch for years until a couple of months ago when my mother in law gave me one. The strap broke and now I actually miss it.

  • What a fabulous watch and a great competition, fingers crossed I win
