It has been long time since I’ve started wearing watch again. The last time I was a regular watch wearer was probably in middle school, back when Swatch and Baby-G ruled the world.
Nowadays my I use my iPhone, which is tethered to me 24/7, to tell time. The watch no longer serves a functional purpose, and is purely arm candy. Since my teenage years, my taste has also changed a bit.
When I first discovered Jord watches, grown-up arm candy is what came to mind. The watch is made out of wood — how sophisticated (and cool) is that! The fact that it could tell you time is just a side bonus. I love that the neutrality of the wood makes it easy to pair the watch with different outfits and layer with other accessories. As any New Yorker with limited closet space can attest, versatility is key in selecting items to add to your wardrobe.
