A very cool St. Louis watchmaker called JORD recently sent me a wooden watch. I normally don't wear watches ever since I got my forearm tattoo (it says "now" and is actually quite effective as a watch -- it's always correct), but I love, love, love practical things made out of unexpected materials -- like a wood watch! #jordwatch
The watch I picked is called the Sully and it's in cherry wood. I picked the Sully because it was the biggest style, and I thought if you're going to go wooden, go big. My watch arrived in a cool wooden box. The attention to detail was nice.
The back is carved with details about the watch.
I first wore the watch to a clothing exchange party. It was a real conversation starter, as a bunch of women said they'd been in the market for a wooden watch. At less than $150, this watch is a no-brainer.
I love how versatile this watch is. Right now I've got it on with a henley tee.
I can see what time it is existentially and for realz.
But I also think I'll wear it to the barn the next time my daughter has riding lessons. It looks cool with my wooden purse and her cowboy hat.
