I’ve had an old, rugged watch clutching onto my wrist for years. It’s gold and vintage and a tiny bit nostalgic. We’ve been inseparable since my 18th birthday. Truthfully, I never understood the need to have more than one watch until I met my watch-addicted boyfriend. Small ones, big ones, bright ones, metal ones; he gave a perfectly reasonable excuse to own them all, and soon after I caved into this ridiculous — yet perfectly reasonable— addiction.

Like any Gen-Y, my wristwatch addiction has flourished into a curious love affair with jewelry. My watch holds no time-telling purpose. Why? Because that’s what my TV-sized cellphone is for. So, when I saw JORD and their enviable wooden watches all over my Instagram feed I became mildly obsessive, to say the least. I began picturing how absurdly this wrist-sized accessory would impact my life; the way it’d make my wrist so utterly cool and laid-back; how hunky-dory my timeless outfits would turn out to be.
Maybe it’s because wooden accessories remind me of a misunderstood lumberjack who just wants to drink beer, chop some wood, and listen to the Violent Femmes all night, but I feel pretty fucking cool. This watch has changed my game in ways only The Pink Ladies, leather jackets, and cigarettes can understand.
Note: my definition of cool is heavily influenced by Grease, loads of red wine, and songs from the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s
