I remember taking a test a few years ago to determine what kind of person I was when it came to new technology. Was I the kind of person that loved to try new things? Did I wait until others had and then jump in? Did I refuse change altogether until I was forced to? The answer for me, in short, is that I love new things. I love discovering new things and I love sharing those new things with friends. Hence my article today, where I’m sharing with you something that I have discovered and come to love…. Wood watches!
Wood watches? You’re probably wondering if I mistyped. I did not. I recently came across Jord Wood Watches, a unique wood watch brand that crafts it’s signature watches out of all different kinds of wood – sandalwood, bamboo, ebony… How cool is that? Here is my beautiful watch, on vacation with me in Palm Springs recently.
My wood watch is the Sandalwood & Smoke combination, which I loved for the dark colours – I thought they went perfectly with the cooler fall weather – and the rose gold detailing on the watch face. Isn’t she pretty?
There are two real tests for me about new fashionable products that I like to see the results of before declaring my love (or hatred) of a product. The first one is if my husband approves (As you well know as a reader, he’s a pretty fashionable dude) and this watch got a huge thumbs up. In fact, it even got a “Hey, do they have men’s watches?” question which surprised me! The second is if, when I’m wearing the watch in public, I will get randomly stopped and asked about it. The answer for this one was another resounding yes. I wore it to pick out mini ghost pumpkins with my sons at Trader Joe’s and a woman completely ignored the kids to ask me about where I got my watch.
I wore it again in Palm Springs on vacation and got asked about it by the manicurist, waiters at dinner, cashiers at stores… And I then wore it to a family birthday dinner where my mom, sister and Aunt all declared that they needed one. NEEDED. The watch even inspired my manicure colour…
