-In the above photo, notice that T.W. Randall has a pocket watch chain coming from a “watch pocket” in his trousers, secured to a belt loop. The “watch pocket” was first introduced by Levi Strauss & Co. during the 1870s, Prior to that, men stored their pocket watches in their waistcoat (a.k.a. vest) pocket and attached it to a chain secured to a buttonhole. Levi Strauss & Co. was the first to recognize that hardworking men didn’t always own or wear a waistcoat. However, because the patent (at that time) expired after only 17 years, competitors soon included a “watch pocket” in their pants as well. During that time, wristwatches were primarily worn by women; and called “watch bracelets” because they were considered to be fashion jewelry rather than serve any real purpose. Consequently,​ prior to World War I, men seen wearing a wristwatch were viewed as effeminate. The “watch pocket” remained popular for several decades. Today, you will still see a “watch pocket” on many popular blue jeans (a tiny pocket peeking out from above the right front pocket), a relic from a bygone era.+In the above photo, notice that T.W.
