Jord Wood Watch
I love myself a good masculine watch. In fact, almost all the watches I own are pretty masculine. Maybe it’s because I have smaller wrists, but there’s something about a big watch face that makes me feel cooler. Is that weird?
When I first hopped on the Jord website, I was immediately intrigued. Watches made of wood. As a girl obsessed with all things made of wood, I found them to be a match made in heaven. Intrigue shortly turned into a love affair. I wasn’t sure how I could choose one.
I really like the Fieldcrest and the Ely. I considered choosing one of those because they were slightly more subdued and feminine. The thought that they might appeal to more people actually crossed my mind, which I’m not super proud to admit. Clearly, in the end, the Dover won out. I just couldn’t help but keep being drawn back to it. It’s dark and masculine, but I’m obsessed with it and have actually had several people comment on how cool they thought it is.
It just goes to show that you always gotta follow your gut and what you really like, not what you think other people will like. This watch is a good reminder of that. And as cheesy as it sounds, being able to see the inner workings is also a good reminder to tune into my own inner workings every once in awhile. No matter what something looks on the outside, there’s a lot more that goes into it on the inside.
Beyond the watch itself, Jord itself is a pretty awesome brand. Jord is Swedish for “earth, soil, land.” Sustainable meets modern. Simple but rad. My kind of stuff. Also the perfect gift. You can shop their site here.
