A Pocket Watch is a watch that is made to be carried in a pocket.
They were the most common type of watch from their development in the 16th century. Wristwatches became popular after World War 1, during which a transitional design, Trench Watches, were used by the military. Pocket watches will sometimes have an attached chain to allow them to be secured to a waistcoat or belt loop. This prevents them from being dropped.
Watches were also mounted on a short leather strap or fob. As a long chain would have been likely to catch on things. This fob could also provide a protective flap over their face and crystal. Women’s watches were normally of this form, with a watch fob that was more decorative than protective.
Chains were frequently decorated with a Silver or Enamel pendant. They often carried the arms of some club or society, which by association also became known as a fob. Also common are fasteners designed to be put through a buttonhole and worn in a jacket or waistcoat. These sort being frequently associated with and named after Train conductor.
