The belcher chain has a long association with hanging fob watches or stop watches. It is also ideal for suspending any large chunky fob or pendant. It is also sometimes known as a station masters chain.
A belcher chain differs from a curb chain by virtue of its perfectly round links unlike a curb which has a distinctive flattened style. The curb links are fashioned with straight as opposed to circular lines.
A classical sterling silver belcher chain with spring loaded ring clasp. Its round, welded links, are the distinguishable feature of the classic belcher chain. Ideal for fob-watches but can be worn alone for a classical look. The name belcher originates from the Italian "fazzoletto da collo colorato" although some argue it originates from the neck-ties worn by the British Boxer Jim belcher.
