Why I Still Love Watches on Men + A Father’s Day Giveaway

Date Thu, June 12 2014

Although I don’t wear watches myself — I’m always near my phone or computer and I tend to sweat a lot — I love them on men. Why?

  1. They’re sexy. There’s something about a designer watch and a suit that just gets me. Maybe it suggests that a guy is put together in my mind?
  2. They’re practical. When someone looks at his or her watch to check the time, I automatically think of them as reliable people.
  3. They’re luxurious. A watch made by Cartier is like a pair of Louboutins for women. And both are imitated!
  4. They let a man show his personality. Women get all sorts of jewelry and accessories, but men often have fewer choices. Enter the wrist watch.
  5. They can be passed down. How many people have their grandfather’s watch? A wrist watch can become a family heirloom.
  6. Watches make great presents for retirement, graduation, weddings and more.
  7. Checking the time on a watch isn’t as distracting as using a phone.

Jord is a manufacturer of unique wood watches — and there are a ton of images on Google of people loving their natural Jord watches! Rather than typical stainless steel or gold links, these watches consist of wooden links in from various trees. Jord has crated over 20 unique watches with wooden bands and gorgeous analog faces. Although, I could easily see them working with digital faces, which would be a perfect match between traditional and contemporary.

My two favorite watches from Jord are Ely, a light maple band with a face that has a date panel, and the darker Delmar with a textured blue watch face. The rectangular design of this watch is definitely unique, and people would stop to ask where you got your watch if you were wearing it! The 746 series in black is also gorgeous. Several of the watches are available with different wood and face finishes if you don’t like those colors, too.

These watches use modern hardware such as scratchproof glass that is splashproof but shouldn’t take it into the pool with you. Some of the watches use classic winding mechanisms so you’ll never have to worry about dead batteries. In fact, you might find yourself soothed by winding up your watch every day.

If you think that the special dad in your life would enjoy a watch by Jord, or even if you’d like one yourself, then you’re in the right place.

    For me, I like the Ely, since it’s slightly smaller. For my spouse, I like the Fieldcrest or Sully. Actually, I like all of JORD’s designs!

    Both my spouse and I love watches. Why? Well, they’re fun, they’re useful, and they’re a way of expressing the way you feel by which one you choose to wear on any given day.
