SPOILER ALERT: Read all the way to the end. There’s a really great giveaway there!
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Jord Watches. All opinions are 100% mine, and I wouldn’t type these words if I didn’t mean them.
I am married to the world’s pickiest man who pays attention to every single detail, no matter how small it might seem. And I mean this in the best possible way. It serves him well and helps him succeed.
Sometimes it can be slightly infuriating.
He has been looking for a unique men’s watch for years. YEARS. Ever since we first met, which was in 2000. Yikes.
This isn’t an exaggeration, y’all. I have bought him so many watches. From Jcrew to Timex to Iron Man. And he acts like he likes them and might even wear them for a few months, but then they mysteriously stop working, or he doesn’t like them anymore, or they just randomly disappear.
Canvas bands/metal bands/rubber bands. NOPE. None of them have fit the bill. I actually stopped trying to find a watch for him a few years ago. I didn’t think there was anything I could find to fit the dream watch that he invented in his mind.
Around Christmas time I decided that I was going to try to find him a unique men’s watch for Valentine’s Day. It stressed me out just thinking about it, though.
We’ve been trying to find him some classic but modern civilian clothes for when he’s not in uniform. Guys, that’s so much harder than it sounds. I mentioned he’s picky. The military life is actually great for him because he has limited options when he just grabs a uniform. When he’s out of the uniform, it becomes a bit trickier. We’ve been adding to his wardrobe over the past year because I want him to have some great pieces when he takes command this summer.
I knew that a good watch was part of this but my research didn’t lead me to anything special.
Jord Wood Watches
When Jord reached out for a collaboration and giveaway I thought the timing was perfect. I did a ton of research and decided that their wood watches were amazingly unique and chic and modern and masculine and basically a great fit for Jimmy.
You guys know I’m incredibly choosy about sponsorships and partnerships. I don’t ever want to be a walking ad or come across as fake or salesy and I only say yes to collaborations when they make total sense. This is one of those times. I only like sharing things I (we) truly love and things we think are helpful, orginal, or meaningful.
Jord sent him the Conway Watch in dark sandalwood and burgundy and I am not even kidding when I tell you that Jimmy LOVES it. I had no idea that wood watches were even a possibility, but this material is the perfect match for him.
He is so impressed with the packaging, the quality, and basically just the fact that it looks SUPER COOL on his arm.
These watches are hand-crafted and unique. During my research I found out that Jord uses everything from walnut to bamboo, from sandalwood to zebrawood. They offer a one year warranty and the way they send and wrap the watch is absolutely stunning. You can even engrave the back of the watch to make it extra special.
I truly think that these make the perfect gift if you are looking for a unique men’s watch. For Valentine’s Day, birthdays, or for any reason. I have always had the hardest time knowing what to buy Jimmy! Do any of y’all struggle with the same thing?
Side Note: I am SO damn proud of him for sitting still long enough for me to take these photos. He even offered some posing ideas (like the one above) and I almost peed my pants. HAHAHA!
Anyway, back to being professional. (I COULD NEVER SURVIVE AS A FASHION BLOGGER)…
Thanks to Jord we have the perfect watch. Thanks to J.Crew, Jos A. Bank, and Nordstrom I am on my way to dressing him to match the watch. But the struggle is real and the road is LONG y’all. Lots of plaid and textures, and I feel that that is TOTALLY appropriate for Alaska.
Here are some more shots of the packaging and the watch:
