I’m going to let you all in on a little secret. My husband does not let me dress him. Try as I might, that man is consistently dressed in athletic sweatshirts and fluorescent pink tennis shoes. Which, by the way, he gets compliments on all the time when we go out, usually by ladies, but compliments nonetheless 😉 He has his own style, and while I can count on one hand the number of times I get to see him in a nice button up throughout the year, I love his independent and unique ability to own his quirky style.
While he is the king of casual, that does not mean he is unwilling to try out fun accessories. I learned early on to not waste my time or money trying to buy him clothes. However, things like hats, necklaces, and watches are always fair game. And that is why I was absolutely thrilled when Jord reached out to me about the opportunity to gift a wooden watch to the most important (and pickiest!) man in my life.
To be honest, I wasn’t quite sure what he would think. That man has opinions, and he shares them pretty darn freely. When I presented him with his options though, he easily picked a favorite. And asked me multiple times when his new watch would be arriving. You guys, he was excited about it! I was so happy to be able to give him something that has a practical purpose, yet is also so unique and different than anything else you would find in a store.
When it did finally arrive, it was packaged perfectly. The box that it came in was a work of art in and of itself. Engraved with a logo, it was nearly as pretty as the watch within. High scores all around on presentation.
The watch itself is gorgeous. The biggest thing we both noticed right away was how light it is; truly as light as air, which is such a nice change a pace from normal watches, which are typically a little bit heavy. The wood carved pieces are beautifully and meticulously crafted. It really is a work of art.
We encountered a bit of a scare when Mike went to put it on, as we feared it was not big enough! I was a little baffled, because Jord wooden watches are custom fit, with a request for you submit a wrist measurement when ordering. Fear not, we quickly realized that there were two clasps involved in closure, and Mike had simply not opened it up all of the way! When we figured that little detail out, it slid on perfectly and fit just as it should.
This watch is the perfect piece to dress up a casual outfit, but will also pair beautifully with dressier looks. There are so many gorgeous styles available, for both men and women, I have my eye on one or two for myself! If you are looking for that unique gift for Valentine’s Day, or simply a stylish piece for the man in your life, this is it.
