I love winter. I know I say it every year and I know it’s probably starting to sound like I’m trying to convince myself, but it’s the truth. I love the snow when it’s big and clumpy and blanket-y, I love having a fireplace and actually using it and I love over-dressing. Robbie does not. He should, given his lack of melanin but he prefers the weather in Cali. That’s why he moved there, from here, in the first place.
But I do love Robbie in winter clothes. Guys just look good in layers. This week I added another little layer to his wardrobe. A JORD wood watch. It’s the Zebrawood & Dark Sandalwood watch from the CONWAY series. How gorgeous is this watch? And here I was thinking wood watches were only for hipsters – I feel like this one was made for Robbie. He looks so natural wearing a wood watch. Natural and rustic. Woodsman-ish almost. Or is that the beanie…
The watch came in a wooden box with vents and a humidifying pouch. It’s like a humidor for your watch. It also came with an adjustment kit and a cleaning cloth and a little finishing oil pen. It’s even nicer in real life than in the pictures. It’s beautifully detailed and has a really nice weight to it.
I’ve always fancied men’s watches on girls. Plus, a women’s watch usually looks silly on me (I’m at peace with my man hands). So when JORD sent a men’s watch, I tried it on before I gave it to Robbie. Just for kicks. I don’t want to blow my own horn, but it looks good on me. It just does. So now it’s the Boyfriend Watch. He can keep it but I might borrow it for trips to the Berkshires.
If you are looking at Robbie’s watch and thinking you need a wood watch right this second, I have good news and bad news. The good news is that JORD is giving Les Petits Gazette readers the chance to win $100 toward their own wood watch. If you enter but don’t win, you will still receive a $25 gift code at the end of the contest. The bad news is that you won’t get your watch right this second. You’ll have to wait until the contest closes on 2/5 at 11:59pm.
