“A gentleman’s choice of timepiece says as much about him as does his Saville Row suit.” – Ian Fleming
For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been some what of a watch connoisseur. We all have our share of hobbies and coveted collectables. Some people collect automobiles, others collect cards, and there are those that collect currency from all over the world. I collect watches. In a moment of completely transparency, I own a watch box (with my initials engraved on it). Seriously, it is not a game. I take my collections seriously. I also collect kicks but that’s a story for another day! Don’t judge me.
Over the years the years I’ve gathered a very eclectic collection of watches that I am proud of. I don’t know if you’ve ever heard that Sesame Street song “One of these things is not like the other,” but that’s not the case here. Each one of my watches is unique and no two are alike. However, until recently I’ve never owned or even considered owning a wooden watch.
Honestly, I’m unsure why I never considered extending watch box membership privileges to a wooden watch. I guess there wasn’t a wooden watch out there that had caught my eye. Well at least until I stumbled across these Jord Wood Watches. If you haven’t heard of them you should definitely check them out. I really love this Conway Series – Kosso & Midnight Blue wooden watch. If you know me, I am big on details. The pairing of the natural Kosso wood with the midnight blue face is a match made in heaven. Its a thing of beauty in all honesty. We also have to talk about the stainless steel trim that runs along the wooden band. That’s such a great touch. This watch has a luxurious feel and allows an outfit to exude a “sophisticated slay.” All in all, I’m very impressed by this watch. You will not be disappointed in the look, quality, functionality or feel of this watch.
Here’s a closer look at the watch.
