A fob is either a chain or ribbon (and the ornamental piece joining it) that is attached to the pocket watch and the word fob dates back as far as 1888. The ‘T’ cross at the end of the chain prevented the watch from falling out of a waistcoat pocket and because watches were typically heavier then, the chain was kept relatively short to make it comfortable to wear.
