14.5" mixed karat 10k straight-style pocket watch chain with elaborate 18k finals and findings, overall this handsome chain has been designed to look like a dragon chasing a swan, sinuous 10k (tested) links create a 5mm diameter snake-chain design for the entire length of the chain, the "tail" end is finished with a heavy 18k (tested) final with deep vertical-design engraving and heavy connector loop, which then connects to the 10k (tested) screw-down loop swivel, the "head" end of the chain has an 18k (tested) final formed to resemble the large beaked mouth of a dragon with intricate engraving detailing scales, feathers and teeth with the beak closing to form the connector loop, attached to this loop is then an elegant 18k (tested) button-clip finding of smooth polish curves that resembles a stylized swan, overall the chain is in excellent condition with no kinks on the chain links and no heavy scratches or damage to the other components, however there have been some small expert repairs done on the 2 connector areas, likely to reinforce those components from natural wear from friction, weighs approx. 24.0dwt.

For historical information, photo examples, and suggested wearing styles for our pocket watch chains, please visit our "How To Wear" Guide.
Our example photos show our items against a backdrop created from a men's medium-sized vest.  Depending on the style you are looking to create with your chain, we offer that for someone with a slender build or short to average height, you can expect the shown item to hang off your person similar to the photo.  If you have a larger build or are taller than average, please note the chain will hang differently off your person than shown.

As a rule of thumb, on an average-build male, we suggest straight or Albert style chains 10" or shorter for heights under 5'8", 10" to 14" for heights 5'8" to 6'2" and 14" or longer for heights over 6'2".  For Double Albert chain styles, we suggest 20" or shorter for heights under 5'8", 18" to 30" for heights 5'8" to 6'2" and 24" or longer for heights over 6'2".
