Early, Large and Heavy, this Pocket Watch Chain is for the Big Boy
Pocket watch chains meant for utility pocket watches (like railroad watches), for the most part, don't make much of a statement. This chain, made of solid .925 silver (sterling) makes a very nice statement for a larger gentleman's pocket watch, like any size 18s. Since with chain is sterling, even though it's never been polished, it still retains a nice luster unlike the more common coin silver. The chain weighs approximately 25.3 grams (WOW) and is 17" long. It is made for a larger pocket watch than a standard 16s. Although it's really the case size that matters. This would go great with some of our larger pocket watches of silver or white gold filled; and frankly, I've not seen a sterling chain of this size and weightso I believe it's quite rare.
