Recently my search for a proper silver watch chain to match my antique Waltham Massey pocket watch paid off; I have aquired a vintage single Albert watch chain with a fob. The t-bar, clasp and chain are all hallmarked for Chester 1922 whilst the fob is hallmarked for Birmingham 1910.

I use the Albert for formal attire and city suits (when wearing a waist coat obviously), but for country suits, tweed and odd jackets I still use the leather watch strap.
I aquired an extra sterling silver t-bar and clasp and intend to make a proper quality leather strap from goat skin; I will keep you posted on that project.
