It’s no secret that a watch is one of the best pieces of arm candy you can have during the warmer months! When you’re most likely wearing short sleeves (or no sleeves!) all eyes are on your accessories, namely jewelry. Here’s where a good watch comes in: You want one that’s functional, but also something fashion forward. That’s true for both men and women.
I also like to make sure my watch is easy to pair with my favorite bracelets (I’m loving ones like this and this for spring!) and one that goes with every outfit. My fiancé feels the same way about making sure it goes with everything– once he’s hooked on something, he’s not going to change it just because I say that it doesn’t look good with gym shorts.
PS- At the end of this post, you can enter my giveaway to get yourself a cool new watch this spring!
For me, that’s my Apple Watch. I know, I know— I swore I wasn’t going to jump on the bandwagon, but I did and I do not regret it! No regrets though, I absolutely adore my Apple Watch. I have the rose gold face, with the pink sand silicone band. The band is the perfect blush color that goes with absolutely everything, and doesn’t even look weird with a pink top!
I love that this watch can be worn to the gym and still look good enough for date night. Not to mention, it’s so useful that it’s not even funny. I check emails, texts, and even make calls from my wrist. The 21st century is coming at us hard!
Mitri’s favorite is a new watch from JORD, and its all wood! Yes, the whole thing! Its the Frankie Series watch in Dark Sandalwood and Emerald, and he is obsessed with it. The dark wood color is dressy, but the colored face keeps it from looking overdone with shorts or a more casual outfit, which is what he normally is wearing if he isn’t working.
Typically, we can NEVER find watches for Mit because of his large wrist size, but JORD carries up to a size 27 3/4 in this bands! He is wearing a 26, for reference. (Here is a nifty measuring guide for watches, if you need it)
The Frankie Series men’s watches are splash-resistant, feature hard sapphire crystal glass facing, and the wood is pretreated with tung oils. All this is relevant because like most men, Mitri is so hard on watches! Another great thing is its SO lightweight, it doesn’t even feel like you’re wearing anything.
Oh, and I think he likes the engraving too! (Also done by JORD)
