Pocket Watch Alberts (chains)


Recommended Posts


My wife has recently bought me an antique 1920's Hamilton pocket watch as a graduation present. It never came with a chain and Im looking to buy one but it seems to be a bit of a mine field. Also online I am either finding cheap tat or antique valuable metals running over £1000 and not much in between. I have considered Cousins who sell solid silver at around £60 to £80 for a double Albert depending on weight. I eventually plan to buy a leather wristlet strap so I can wear it as a watch but I want an Albert for formal wear which doesnt happen a lot these days. So budget wise I want something of best quality I can get obviously but probably wouldnt want to spend more than £100. I wouldnt mind something with a fob even vicotrian style gem etc but this may be something I can buy seperatly and wouldnt mind costume jewellery for that part. My main concern first is the chain. Any recomendations new or used would be much appreciated.
