There are ten tassels total along the length of the chain, at the end of each side of the chain the final two long segments narrow down to two box-link chain strands that are capped at each end with the same blue-enamel accented rectangular finials as are found on the tassels, one side has a medium-sized smooth polish screw-down swivel clasp while the other side has a small length of round links that then connects to the medium-sized fancy t-bar with engraved ball designs on each end and a raised center cuff swivel detail.

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".
