Pocket watch?

They also used to be called Fob Watches.

But, strictly speaking, the Fob is the chain plus other ornamentation to which it is attached.

That’s also why vests contain those small shallow “pockets” which were specifically created to hold them.

Weird how some things develop such tremendous momentum, innit?

I am of the opinion that the world needs more pocket watches.

You can also get a trucker wallet on a chain and a retractable key chain to make a matching set!!

A pocket watch, or if you wear it around your neck it is a watch pendant.

Isn’t that what the fifth pocket in jeans is for?
