Why wooden watches are beautiful

Today we’re talking wooden watches; Why I like them, how I style them, and why you need one (despite having a phone that tells perfect time).

If you’re like me, you tend to be just a tad behind on the latest trends (yet here I am, giving style advice — oops). HOWEVER, once I hop on board with a new trend, I tend to get pretty excited about it. The wooden watch trend is fairly new, in my opinion. There aren’t a whole lot of watch companies out there that specialize in wooden watches – yet. And trust me, there will be. When Nicole from Jord Watches reached out to me about a partnership, I was understandably excited. I have never been much of a watch person, but I was a huge fan of this one particular model (the one pictured above). I have never had a wooden watch, so I don’t have much to compare it to – but wow. I’m impressed. (P.S – skip to the end if you want the link for a GIVEAWAY!)

I love how the light gray face of this watch compliments the warm rose gold accents and Koa wood. As you can see, I’ve chosen to pair it with rose gold jewelry to bring out those accents (just so happens that rose gold is another trend right now). For reference, this model is the Frankie 38 in Koa & Almond. The best thing about these wood watches is how neutral they are; you can wear almost anything with them. Choose one without metal accents if you want to be able to wear with all metals – or mix metals for a unique look. Something I really appreciate about their website is that they have a whole page dedicated to explaining how they process the wood so that it will be both beautiful and durable. They have men’s watches and women’s watches, so you can be sure to find something for everyone.

The last thing I’m going to talk about (before the GIVEAWAY!) is why you need a quality watch. Yes, we have phones now and laptops that tell perfect time – but that’s not all they do. Phones can also be a huge distraction. It’s not always a good idea to take your phone out to check the time…and the smart watches that can “do everything your phone can” are just as bad. Lack of focus is something that (young people especially) are beginning to struggle with. Constantly having these smart devices on or checking them and getting notifications is certainly not helping…but that’s a conversation for another time.  There’s also something so respectable and classy about these wooden watches. I feel like wearing this watch would make me look put-together no matter what outfit I had on.

    Classy looking watch! Love the wood, esp if it’s aromatic like cedar! What a cool looking mirror on the wall too!

      I so agree!! I don’t have a great sense of smell, so I couldn’t tell if they’re aromatic – would have to ask my husband. And yes, I got that from Zulily! It’s my favorite.
