When we went to choose our watches, we loved that there were so many options to fit each of our styles. Chris immediately zeroed in on the Dover Series' Koa wood options. This gorgeous and strong wood comes from acacia trees, and the word "koa" also means " warrior" in Hawaiian. When we lived in Hawaii, his ship squadron's nickname was "Koa Kai"- the warriors of the ocean. So, it was pretty much a no-brainer for him to choose the Koa and Black Dover Series watch. Chris isn't much of a jewelry guy, but the beautiful wood grain, exposed gears, and reminder of our time in Hawaii means that it rarely leaves his wrist these days.
My own choice, the Cora series Lavender and Maple watch, was a pretty simple one to make. I love the colorful face, and casual elegance of the maple wood. It pairs seamlessly with shorts and tee, or perfectly with a date night outfit.
Both of our watches are incredibly lightweight, so even with all that comes with a day with the kids-- fixing breakfast, changing diapers, playing trucks, giving hugs, wiping tears, kitchen dance parties-- we barely notice our watches on our wrists-- until it's almost naptime, of course. Then we may be checking our watches a little more frequently. ;)
