I’ve been looking for a women’s wood watch for years, and I’m happy to report that I’ve finally found one.
NOTE: The FTC requires me to disclose that I received this lovely JORD women’s wood watch for free in exchange for this post and social media shares.
I lead a very analog lifestyle. I spend nearly every waking moment attempting to get away from my phone. And while I know some folks swear by smart watches, I just can’t do it. My number one requirement for a watch is to tell me time. So if it shows me my text messages, I’M OUT. (It’s not that I don’t like hearing from people. It’s that I don’t want the distraction all day long.)Check out this women's wood watch from JORD -- it's perfect for your analog lifestyle! Click To Tweet
Can I make a quick confession? I have no less than three secret Pinterest boards dedicated to “professor style.” And even though I’ve been teaching at a university for three years, I don’t think I’ve quite achieved the look I’m going for.
Ultimately, I want to look professional, but bookish. Kind of like Indiana Jones before he leaves the university to seek the Arc of the Covenant, but more feminine. I’m thinking elbow patches, brogue oxfords with a pencil skirt or ankle pants, and a floppy leather satchel that’s full of books and pens.
And the accessories are just as important! Think horn-rim tortoise shell glasses. (Who cares if I’ve had LASIK?!) Add in a fun enamel pin on lapel that illustrates how smart and witty I am. Then top it off with a women’s wood watch and the look is complete.
This women’s wood watch I received from JORD is ideal for a number of reasons. Firstly, when you order, you state how large in centimeters you’d like your watch to be. So you don’t have to worry about finding a jeweler to take band links out for you. Secondly, the choices they offer are both striking and neutral, so you can wear this watch with anything, and it still makes a statement.
Thirdly, well, just look at it.
I love how this women’s wood watch can be dressed up or down. It’s perfect to wear to work or for a night out. It’s the ideal watch really, and would make a great gift for the lady you’re shopping for this Valentine’s season.
(Seriously. Always choose functional and professional-looking jewelry over the heart-shaped necklaces that the mall jewelry store tries to sell you. Adult women want to look like adults. And JORD offers custom engraving, so it’s sure to be a special gift.)
I chose the Dover Koa and Black watch, and I love how you can see all the gears on the inside. And it’s self-winding so it doesn’t require a battery. (Can you tell I hate going to jewelry stores to have watches serviced?!)
But if the Dover isn’t your thing, that’s okay. JORD makes so many beautiful options that they’ll definitely have one you love.
And don’t worry, dudes, JORD makes watches for men too.
