After Steptoe1 posted a chain (pocket watch) and wasn't sure what was for, I thought I might show a few variations of pocket watch chains & straps that I have.
In the first group photo from the left:
1 & 2: Double Albert Chains. Watch on one side placed in vest pocket, fob i.e. key, knife, cigar cutter on the other side in opposite vest pocket..
3: T-Bar fits through vest button hole, watch attaches to snap.
4: Same as 3 except it has a extra short chain & ring attachment for a fob.
5: Ring with slide opening to attach around button threads & snap on other end for the watch.
6: T-Bar, slide piece to hold chains together, snap for watch.
7: Cylinder screw open/close on both ends. One to place around button or belt loop, watch on the other end.
8: Clip on belt, snap for watch.
9: Large snap for belt loop, small snap for watch.
10 & 11: Belt slips through metal bar, snap for watch.
12: Braided leather belt strap, belt through large loop, watch on buckle end.
13: Fob leather strap, strap feeds through the watch bow & fob on the other end with strap buckled together and watch carried in levi watch pocket.
Just a little reference to pocket watch chains & straps.
