Wearing Your Pocket Watch

How to wear your pocket watch is a question often asked these days. There are many forms of chains, fobs, and leather holders which will hold your pocket watch safely. The key is to make sure it attaches securely to your belt, button hole, belt loop or watch pocket. Fobs make the watch easier to pull out of your pocket, and usually display a metal engraved or stamped decorated piece, often with a train related theme, construction heavy equipment, historical, old west, or a fraternal theme. Some fobs are made with teeth, or claws of animals, or stones. Western and horse themes are very popular as are firearm, rifle, and pistol makers. Wells Fargo and Harley Davidson are frequently worn today.

Below are some examples of different styles of watch chains and how they might be worn.
