When I was a child my parents gave me a locket as a Christmas gift. I still have it, sterling silver with a Victorian design on the front, tiny and fragile. To be honest the clasp broke a few years ago and I filled it with epoxy glue to hold it closed so I could still wear it. I love that piece of jewelry. Not because it’s spectacular in it’s workmanship, obviously not because of the pictures in it. I love it because of its sentimental value and because of the spirit it was given to me in, a keepsake, a remembrance, a piece of my past to bring forward with me and send on.
Many men have pocket watches in a box or drawer somewhere hidden away from the world but held onto for the same reasons. It’s not a day-to-day functional piece of jewelry. Have you ever asked someone for the time and they pulled their pocket watch out? The simple fact is that time has marched on and the heirloom pieces of jewelry we feel sentimentality about are no longer useful or stylish and are often relegated to a box or drawer only to see the light of day during spring-cleaning.
HourPower Watches® has a contemporary piece of jewelry that addresses the sentimentality of the heirloom. With the marriage of the pocket watch and the locket they have taken both men’s and women’s heirloom jewelry into this century. From bezel to band the appointments and details of these quality timepieces are visible. What’s not visible is the secret chamber under the face of the watch. Simply lift at the tab placed at six o’clock and you will reveal a compartment with an engraving surface to hold your own heartfelt sentiments and a protected area for a photograph or a small memento.
After years of counseling clients without a tool to help them in their recovery Paulette Nance and Brenda Ellner got together and created HourPower Watches®. The effects were immediate and the feedback prompted the women to take their project full scale. Now HourPower Watches® are available to the public either directly through HourPower Watches® or at select distributors. Now you too can mark any life event with this timeless gift of love, hope, and inspiration.
The possibilities are endless. Celebrate a birth, a wedding, a graduation, or a confirmation. Remember a loved one who has passed or a soldier serving overseas. Whatever you are going through in your life you can use your HourPower® watch to keep you focused on your recovery. Every time you check your watch you will connect with the sentiment inside and regain your focus and boost you strength to make it through your day. For those working a 12-step program expression discs are available. These brass discs fit in the photo compartment of the watch and offer helpful affirmations for the wearer. Use your HourPower® watch as a touchstone for your recovery or give it as a gift of support for someone you know who is recovering.
