A fob is an adornment or a seal that hung from the ribbon or chain of a Gentleman's pocket watch. Its purpose was to decorate or add weight to the watch chain. Some fobs swivelled within a moveable bracket to allow the wearer a choice as to which face was displayed prominently. Some also represented the wearers interests adn hobbies.
The fob measures 3cm and the chain measures 64cm with a 5cm extension.
Gold fill has the same desirable properties and look of solid gold. It won’t tarnish and will not rub off. If treated with care gold filled jewellery can be worn daily without fear of fading or rubbing off.
