Happy Thursday Everyone! I can’t believe that it’s the first Thursday of January already! I’m so excited to be sharing an extra special post today all about spoiling the men in your life. My guy is always the one behind the camera when I do blogging photos, so he was extra excited to be able to model his new JORD watch for this post today!
We got his JORD watch right before Christmas and he got to wear it all throughout the holidays, where he received lots of compliments on it! We were both super impressed with how versatile the watch was throughout all the different events we attended. J works in business, so he has a few watches that he only wears to work, but he was in the market for one that he could wear regardless of the setting, and this one is definitely it! He chose the Conway Watch, but JORD has a really nice selection of both men’s and women’s watches that would suit anyone’s style. I’ve had my eye on a few of the women’s watches that I might be dropping hints for this Valentine’s day… 😉
I really love the idea of a wooden watch because I have super sensitive skin and have had issues in the past with metal and silver jewellery turning my skin a lovely greenish colour (it runs in my family – yay!) and so I’ve always avoided wearing a daily watch for that reason. Since I’m a new student, a 24k gold or white gold watch isn’t exactly in the budget at the moment (the only metals that won’t dye my skin!). But after seeing these guys, I definitely think there are some nice non-metal, affordable options that would suit my style. I think my favourite one is the Dark Sandalwood & Slate Frankie 35.
After wearing it for a while, I wanted to know what J thought and whether he’d recommend it to others. Overall, he said that he’s really happy with it’s performance and would definitely recommend it to other guys who are looking for watches that can go from casual to corporate seamlessly. His one comment would be that it does occasionally get caught on his dress shirt when he’s writing or typing and he finds that a bit annoying when he’s in a hurry, but otherwise he has no major complaints. Trust me, J is a really picky guy when it comes to any sort of accessories (christmas shopping for him is a tough one!) so if he likes it, your guy probably will too! It also looks really nice on his darker skin tone which is another thing he really loves about it.
The other thing that I really liked about the watch was the packaging. It came in a secure shipping box with lots of padding and bubble wrap, and then came individually packaged in a really nice wooden box (see photo below). Included are extra links, a finishing oil pen, a cleaning cloth, and a little pillow to keep the watch safe while it’s in the box. I have to admit, it’s one of the nicest packaging for jewellery I’ve ever seen. The box is really cute and has a drawer underneath to store the extra links and care items, although I’m thinking I might steal it as my own jewellery box when J isn’t looking 😉
If you’re thinking that this might be something your guy (or anyone you know) might be interested in, you’re in luck!
