Take Time for Dad Fashion with JORD Wood Watches

When I became a father, my priorities changed. I no longer had the time nor opportunity to do many of the things I deemed important pre-dadhood. Among those were sleep, basic hygiene, and wearing a watch.

I initially started going watchless* to keep from scratching my newborn when feeding and changing him. However, it quickly became more about protecting my timepieces from all of the pee, poo, barf, jelly, juice, snot, dirt and the myriad other substances that go hand-in-grubby-hand with childhood. As someone who goes by “Designer Daddy,” you can imagine this was quite a blow to my semi-stylish sensibilities.

Nowadays we’re past the diapers and puking (mostly), and my 7-year-old can hold his own juice and wipe his own butt (mostly) — so I’ve slowly been rebuilding my collection. But with so many other things vying for my attention, how does a dad find time to be fashionable?

JORD WOOD WATCHES

Recently I discovered JORD wood watches. Eye-catching without being flashy; mature without being stuffy; unique without being a kitschy Super Friends watch (though I still wear that one from time-to-time).

In addition to their distinctive appearance, JORD ticks all the boxes for what I look for in a watch:

  • Ruggedly packaged. They come in a dapper, wooden box, which looks great on your dresser or nightstand… or next to your collection of medieval weaponry.
  • Amazingly light. Contrary to their sturdy appearance, JORD watches don’t feel like you’re wearing a log around your wrist.
  • Surprisingly breathable. The links fit snugly together, but are airy enough to let your manly wrist musk evaporate.
  • Stylishly versatile. Whether you’re chasing toddlers through Target, crouched in a tiny chair for parent-teacher conferences, or on a rare date night with your S.O., you’ll always be Cool Watch Dad. I even plan on wearing mine to Papa’s office holiday party, which is the one time a year I go all out — suit, tie, cufflinks, the whole nine. Keep an eye out for IG pics!

Speaking of the holidays… If he’s a good boy, my husband may get his own JORD watch from Santa. Hon, if you’re reading this, Santa says you can stop dropping hints now.

Here are a few of my favorites from JORD’s extensive men’s watch† collection.
