I haven't been here in months...Does anyone remember me?
I'm here today because I just finished making my own Double-Albert pocketwatch chain:
It's nothing fancy. It's mostly made of brass, and the fixings at the ends are scrap pieces from older, cheap, broken chains that served no practical purpose.
The two halves are 10 inches long, with a drop in the middle, of 4 inches. The pocketwatch is in the right pocket, and in the other pocket, I have my vest-pocket fountain pen from 1920s.
Is 4 inches too long for a center fob-drop? Should it perhaps be 2 or 3 inches? Or even just 1 inch?
