Origin Story

Developed around the 1770's alongside the invention of pocket watches, fobs were worn by both men and women, attached at the waist or to a belt. Their popularity continued throughout the 19th century but gradually became more associated with male attire. Some watch chains held multiple decorative fobs where they dangled similarly to a ladies charm bracelet when draped on a vest.
