There are no fixed rules on how to wear and enjoy using your pocket watch; you are only limited by your own personal style and imagination.

The Leather Pocket Watch Fob

If you like the casual look of leather pocket watch straps or fobs you can choose from two popular types of leather watch straps.

A common style of leather pocket watch fob is a thin short leather strap with a brass watch clasp. One end is attached to the pocket watch at the watch bow and the other end has a decorative charm, club insignia or old style advertising fob.

Many pocket watch collectors collect these advertising fobs separately as a fun part of their collection or to occasionally wear with different pocket watches. These pocket watch fobs are attached and displayed as they hang out of your pants pocket, small chain pocket or leather belt pouch.

To remove your watch from your pocket, simply pull on the fob end of the watch strap. Although these look great with a pair of jeans one major concern is that your watch could be damaged if it slips out of your hand or pocket. For this reason we would recommend being very careful or maybe using a quartz watch which is lighter in weight and less prone to fall damage.
