The Albert chain, or fob chain as it is also known, was originally designed for a gentleman to hold a pocket watch at one end and the key to wind it at the other with the t- bar connected to the waistcoat. Years later when men put these down and started to wear wrist watches women started to wear the fob chain as a necklace, which has become very popular.
