Watch Fob Chain Stretching Springs Silver Plate Antique

Like this item?

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


This unusual stretching springs watch fob chain is 10-5/8" long, including the toggle and swivel. When one pulls on the chain, the springs in the links compress and expand the length of the chain, which seems like a useful feature for pulling one's watch out of the pocket. The condition of the springs is excellent. There is some wear in the silver plate at the end with the toggle. This is an old or antique piece which shows some age. I believe it dates to the late 19th or early 20th century.

Shipping includes insurance in the U.S. I will refund excess shipping over $2. Please feel free to email questions, including the possibility of shipping outside the U.S.

Secure options
  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
I do appreciate payment promptly after the purchase has been selected, and I usually ship the same day or next business day after having received payment. I am licensed to do business in New York, which means that I must collect sales 8.875% tax when an item is delivered in New York. If you do not live in NY, there is no sales tax.

Please have compassion. I generally sell one of a kind items. If you change your mind about a purchase before it has been shipped, please let me know right away, so that the item can be released for sale to someone else.

Returns & exchanges

Since my items are one of a kind, I generally do not offer refunds. However, if you purchase a piece of jewelry, and you are not happy with it, it can be returned within 3 days, provided, of course, that it is in the same condition it was when I sold it. The buyer is responsible for the shipping both ways.

If I have failed to note a material defect (this means a defect which substantially affects the value or use of the item), I will offer a full refund, including shipping both ways.

Any damage that occurs in shipping is covered by insurance. Please contact me immediately after receipt of damaged items. We must cooperate on filling out the paperwork and filing an insurance claim. Please do not return damaged items to me, since this action will probably void the insurance coverage. Please save the damaged item and all packing until the insurance has been paid. Please furnish me with jpeg pictures of the damaged item and packaging. It may take at least 2-4 weeks to resolve the insurance claim.

Shipping policies

I usually use U.S. Post Office with insurance to ship almost all items. I find that USPS is pretty reliable, although sometimes slow and confused, especially with tracking, which is another whole topic. I try to charge as close as possible to the actual cost. If you prefer another shipping method, please let me know, and I will do my best to accommodate you.

If I agree to international shipping, any local customs duties, taxes or other charges levied by the government authorities of the shipping destination are the buyer's responsibility, so please check before you purchase. Many of my items are antique, and most countries do not charge duty. The requirements of certification and proof of antiquity vary, so again, please check with your local authorities. I will cooperate in any reasonable way that I can. Please note that I am an honest, law abiding person, and I do not undervalue shipments. To do so is against U.S. law and reduces the amount of insurance coverage for the shipment.
