30 Vintage Watch Fobs (Gold and Silver)

Started collecting these watch fobs in 1962. All specific construction names and equipment images displayed on them. A real collectible for Classic Machinery Operators or a great talking piece for today's Dealers!

SOLD!

Yeah, they are really neat. You know the little pocket in your pants pocket? They used that for a pocket watch and attached a "fob" to it and let it hang out of the pocket. When they needed their pocket watch, they would just pull the fob. These were handy plus they showed off each persons' skills.

Yes, those pockets. They were used for pocket watches. Now, they are used for change or cell phones. ;)
