Some of my pocket watch fobs.  Does anyone else have favorite fobs to share?

I just have the one watch and fob. I converted the figure of I.K.Brunel on this keyring into a fob. When people see it  they say "Ooh! You have a little Victorian man on your watch chain" to which I reply "No, I have THE little Victorian man on my watch chain"

The one that's currently on my watch chain is made of a series of beads that I strung together. However, I'd like to make a new watch chain that incorporates this:



It belonged to my great-grandfather.

I had you in mind when I posted this.  That is a nice fob.

I am thinking about adding one of these to my fob collection:

Hi Capt Dirigible,

That is a really good little Brunel.  I can see why you liked it.

The same figure is available as both a tie pin and cufflinks.

I think that Madam is, being a little bit coy...regarding Brunel's hat.  Wink

Btw...I did have a S&D pop-up alerting me to a possible malicous url or cookie setected, after I clicked on the Good Capt's. link.

Oh...my old war wound? I got that at The Battle of Dorking. Very nasty affair that was, I can tell you.

Favorite fob is actually a keychain-one I got with my Songbird Edition of Bioshock Infinite-Murder of Crows.

I don't wear it out much, on account of it's just a sticker on it rather than being injection molded plastic with colours or what have you, but I DO wear it to special events/occasions.

I'm LOOKING into getting a Double Albert Chain soon, as well as a damn decent MECHANICAL watch.

I bought a copper version of this tentacled little fellow from Etsy a while back. I liked it because it's not the usual Octopus design you see everywhere, and being very small it's an ideal fob size.

I just have a small locket with pictures of my daughter inside.  When I bought it, there was a lock of hair inside, which made me kinda sad to think about.

I recently found this key chain fob which will make a nice pocket watch fob.  Even with a good magnifying glass I can just make out that there are in fact tiny words printed on the pages. 

I am also on the look out for a very inexpensive (<$25.00) version of one of these very steamy working 2mm pinfire fob/pistols:
