Happy Friday! It’s time for the weekend! No pun indended 😉
It’s spring, so that means it’s wedding season. I always have my go to accessories and so does my hubby. For a less formal wedding, he likes to wear a sport coat, a button up and khakis and now his new watch.
When it comes to watches, my hubby has a nice silver one that he wore for a while but he got bored of it and stopped wearing it. He had been wanting a new one, so when I asked him about this wood watch he was so excited. My hubby basically wears nothing but Brooks Brothers and Polo Ralph Lauren, so I was a little surprised he loved the natural look of the wood watch. Here’s what he had to say about the watch:
“I had always thought wood watches looked cool but I’m pretty cheap so I didn’t want to spend a decent amount of money on one and then end up not wanting to wear it very much. So, when I got the opportunity to try the Jord wood watch out, I leaped at the chance. Being a typical man, I’m not big into fashion, and I usually buy stuff based on either ‘that looks cool’ or ‘that looks like something Courtney would allow me to wear’. So anyways, not being a fashion expert, it’s kind of hard to put into words what I liked about the Jord watch, but I really enjoy it. Though they have several other styles that looked cool, I chose to go with this dark brown and red one. The dark sandalwood looks rather sophisticated; something about the way it looks as well as the sturdy feeling it has makes me feel like it came from an old, massive tree. The elegant color gives it a maturity that makes it look like the wood has been around for a hundred years, while the durable feeling of it makes it seem like it could last for a hundred more. The burgundy manages to blend in smooth with the sandalwood color while also popping out. Juxtaposing a dark color (like the sandalwood) with a color that is both light and dark (after all, burgundy is just bright red that they added some brown to I think) is a cool way to have both elements blend together while also popping out. I think this watch jumped out to me because I’m a big Maker’s Mark fan and the colors reminded me of that; the sandalwood looks like the oak barrels and the whiskey itself, while the burgundy is reminiscent of the red wax top. This reinforced the mature, understated elegance of the watch to me. Anyways, enough about the look of the watch. It also feels great and works great. Being in the hospital, I’m always doing something with my hands, whether it’s performing a physical exam or writing a patient note. Despite the sturdy feeling of the watch, it never feels cumbersome when you’re using your arms. Even after a long day, it still felt very comfortable. Overall, I think it’s a great watch, and my only regret is that I forgot to make sure I got a left-handed watch. Courtney and I are both lefties, and it seems like every day something like this happens to remind us it’s a right handed world. Anyways, other than me forgetting that like everybody else on earth is right handed, I highly recommend the Jord watch! I’ve never been a big watch guy, but now as I finally am close to being done with medical school and moving on to actually being a doctor, it’s important to have a professional, elegant look, and the Jord watch definitely fits that profile.”
