Pocket watches are commonly worn with a chain to allow them to be attached to your clothing, such as your waistcoat, lapel or belt loop - keeping your investment secure and easy to access. The pocket watch chain should complement your watch, which is why we have chains available in a variety of different materials, finishes and thicknesses to suit your timepiece. If you’re looking to wear your pocket watch opposed to displaying it in your home, then a chain is a necessity for both security and style.
When it comes to choosing a pocket watch chain, there are three main types you can choose from. Amongst the most popular are the T-Bar chains, which are also referred to as Albert pocket watch chains. T-Bars provide a simple solution to attaching your pocket watch to your waistcoat or jacket by slotting the bar end into the buttonhole and the other to your watch. Bolt ring chains and belt bar chains can be used to attach your pocket watch to your trouser belt loop so you can safely store it in your pocket.
