JORD - him.
Just a few weeks ago I posted about a new fancy unique watch that I'd added to my everyday wear (find that post here). It wasn't long after being introduced to JORD wood watches that I knew my artist husband should have one too. David, when he isn't working in the studio, is building things. What sorts of things?... All the things! Like our couch, or the kids bunkbeds, or our dinning table, our fort... this guy has a way with wood. He has also built a lot of custom frames for his art. And when he goes building, he doesn't just go to Lowes and do a quick pick of two by fours, he finds wood all over Nashville that is reclaimed or shipped in - all with different natural beauty of color, knots, and smells. So, of course, a wood watch from JORD makes for the perfect gift.
If you are looking for a gift idea for your guy, here is why I think a watch from JORD is a sure bet -
1. Well I already stated it - they are made from wood! High quality durable unique wood.
2. They are light weight. So if you guy is like mine and always doing a bazillion different things with his hands all day, they have an invisible feel you don't have to worry about feeling heavy or sweaty.
3. If your guy is a gadget guy, this one that David has - The Dover, has visible "guts." An industrial exhibition face which makes it really distinctive (and fun to stare at!) An awesome combination of nature and technology. This from their site is how I knew this was the perfect gift for David:
Tinkering around in your parent's garage and playing with things you shouldn't, you were an inventor from the start. Having a thing is never enough. You need to know the how, why, and what of the build. Your foundation for innovation is equal parts curiosity and creation. We know you because we are you. With gears in full view and structured style, the Dover Black & Koa was designed for the maker in us all.
