Once we become parents, it’s easy to let things slip, isn’t it? This is as true for Moms as it is for Dads, including the clothes we wear and how we dress ourselves! While I might put on a little makeup or perfume, my husband likes a special tie, a clean shave, and a good looking watch. To him, it’s how he makes sure he’s on time to work, knows when to make important meetings, and how long until he can come home to us. It’s part of having style after becoming Dad. So I set out to find a unique and gorgeous watch, and I found that and more with JORD® watches.
JOURNEY: JORD is run by artists, designers, marketers, and minders. We spend our days creating, considering, arguing, and hopefully agreeing. Then we’ll scrap it all for the joy of starting new. We have fun. This is our journey.
EXPERIENCE: We are focused on creating timepieces that are modeled after a modern lifestyle. We value sustainability, efficiency, and experiential living. We make our watches for people who don’t just have somewhere to be, they have somewhere to go.
TELLING MORE THAN TIME: The value of a watch is not in being able to tell how much time has passed, but in being aware of the need to make that time count. Moments are bigger than minutes and your watch should tell more than time.
Dover Series – Ebony & Copper
CLASS & VERSATILITY
Copper alloys are known for their versatility and luster. We’ve incorporated just the right amount of elegance with some pop in our Dover Ebony & Copper. Rich ebony is set off by a brilliant ring of genuine copper. A true collection of elements that makes for an eye-catching timepiece. It’s fine to settle. Settle your nerves, settle the score. Just don’t settle for less.
I wasn’t sure what to think about when I looked into a watch made from wood. But the fact that it was definitely unique looking and definitely a conversation piece sealed the deal. It’s a handsome watch that he loves to show off! Not that he doesn’t love a new tie or ball cap from the kids, he takes his stylish watch seriously. It makes him feel like a well dressed man, no matter what he might be wearing.
He doesn’t have to worry about the battery dying either, because it’s a self-winding automatic watch. It shows the hour, minute and seconds with beautiful blue hands and it looks great sitting on top of the copper “inner workings” of the watch. It’s not waterproof but is “splash proof” according to the manufacturer. And if it needs cleaning, or if he’s going to store it for a while, we make sure to use the suggested lemon or orange oil on the wood surface to clean and protect it from damage.
Long story short, it has become a part of his personal style, his style after becoming Dad. Guys, especially Dads, don’t have many acceptable forms of jewelry to wear in the professional world except cuff links, a wedding band, and a watch. He can check the time on it instead of breaking out his smartphone again, which tends to lead to other distractions LOL! I love that he owns a watch from JORD, and that it has helped him find his own style after becoming a Dad.
