The Best Minimalist Watches to Fit Your Style
Gone are the days of clunky, old-fashioned, elaborate watches- minimalist watches are IN and HERE TO STAY! Can we all just praise heavens for that for just a minute?
Why Minimalist Watches?
I’m a busy woman and like to stick to the basics, and let’s face it- you’re here too because you also love minimalist style. I’ve always loved watches, but time and again (see the pun there?) I have failed to find one that I love because they are either too ornate and flashy for my style, they look like a grandma wears them (no offense, grandmas!), or they look cheap. Thank u, next.
And then I saw it. My cute friend Kaitlyn over at Mr. Mr. & Mama posted the most gorgeous, minimalist watch and I knew. I was in love. Minimalist watches were/are officially my muse.
Finding the Perfect Minimalist Watch
I discovered Kaitlyn’s watch was from Jord watches, so I started digging through their site to see what they were all about and shop through all of their gorgeous options. It must have been fate or luck or some stars aligned somewhere though, because within a few weeks a rep from Jord reached out to me and offered to send me a watch to try out!
I spent a lot of time pouring over the options, they really have an incredible selection of minimalist watches that could fit any person’s style, for both men and women. For me personally, I wanted something with a large face that made a statement, while maintaining it’s simplistic nature.
I also tend to wear a lot of black and love things that have a darker, moodier vibe (that’s why my insta photos tend to be more moody when I edit them!) so getting darker wood was a must for me.
I was a little torn because I found so many I loved, and I actually heavily considered a lighter colored one that was rose gold and white marble because it was so stunning and clean, but ultimately I found the perfect style for me- the Frankie. Frankie is actually my grandmother’s name, and as soon as I saw that I had to choose one of those. I love my grandma. 🙂
My watch is in the color Ebony & Gold.
What Makes Minimalist Watches from JORD so incredible?
Jord wood watches are simply one of a kind. Jord is based in St. Louis and crafts beautiful watches using natural and largely re-claimed materials, and they have some really cool customization options so you can make your watch perfect for your style. Plus every watch comes with a one year warranty and options for exchange if you’re not 100% satisfied.
Fun fact: JORD is actually pronounced like “YODE” – or Yoda without the “a” on the end, as my cute rep mentioned. Totally embarrassing because I had been saying it wrong for weeks. No big deal.
Some of my favorite minimalist watches from Jord:
Arcadia in White Marbel & Rose Gold
Cassia in Ebony & Sable
Frankie in Purpleheart & Plum
Cora Polaris in Zebrawood & Turquoise
And of course my watch, which is the Frankie in Ebony & Gold.
**I just want to give a huge thanks to Jord for partnering with me on this post and sending me this gorgeous watch! Of course, all opinions are my own and I absolutely do not work with or share brands that I don’t love. **
