Catalogue Note

The fashion for fob, lapel and belt worn watches worn on chatelaines was a style that continued in its various forms for hundreds of years. Whilst they were used by both men and women throughout the centuries, the preference for ladies was for particularly decorative examples set with diamonds, semi precious stones or enamel. In the present example, the decorative waist plaque can be worn a both at the lapel or hooked over a belt.
