How to Wear a Pocket Watch

How to Wear a Pocket Watch

This blog is going to explain how to wear a pocket watch the traditional way, there will be a further blog or blogs with other ways in which they can be worn.

Traditionally a pocket watch is worn with a waist coat which makes it an ideal accessory at a wedding. To wear a pocket watch with a waist coat one end of the chain is connected to the watch while the other loops through the button hole on your waist coat. The Watch is then placed in the front pocket of the waistcoat leaving the chain hanging down on show. If you are right handed then the watch should be worn in the left pocket, and if you are left handed then the watch should be worn on the right.

If you are wearing a suit without a waist coat, then wearing a pocket watch is still possible. One way to do this is to attach the chain through the button hole on your suit jacket and keep the watch in your jacket pocket with the chain boldly on show. An alternative is to attach the chain to a belt loop and wear the watch in your trouser pocket.

There are other ways in which you can wear a pocket watch which we will look at in future blogs 😊
