Hello Fearless People!
A few weeks ago my husband asked me what I thought of wooden watches. I definitely thought they were cool, but I wasn’t sure if I would rock them.
Fast forward to later that same week, JORD wood watches approached me about doing a collaboration with them. They offered a watch for not me, but the special man in my life. I guess he spoke it out into the universe and made it happen.
He may have gotten the actual watch, but of course I was the one to pick it out for him. I wanted something versatile, while still maintaining a unique style. The Dover watch in Olive and Acacia (here) ended up being the watch I went with. I was surprised with the quality of the watch itself when I received it. Its has beautiful medium-deep links with lighter contrast inserts. The watch face is a light gunmetal with silver numbers and a pop of color with the turquoise second hand. It breaks up the monotone face and adds a little whimsy (an adjective I would not necessarily relate to Mr. FV). My ABSOLUTE favorite part of the watch is that you can see the watch mechanisms on both the front and the back. Clearly the engineer in me loves to see the little gears move.
For styling this look: It’s quite warm here, so we went with a light-weight chambray button down and grey slacks. To add high contrast those textile colors, we matched the belt and shoes to the watch. I would love to pair this with black slacks and a burgundy printed shirt.
Over all, the watch definitely has a more formal feel which is usually Mr. FV’s style anyways!
Take a look at the watch and styling below.
