The primary photos show our items against a backdrop created from a women's medium-sized sweater with the pin displayed in the traditional "lapel" position.
To attach a watch, or other display item, to the pin, thread the bow of the watch through the hoop on the back of the pin before you wear it.  Once you put the pin on your person, your own clothing will prevent the watch from being able to leave the loop.  Because of the curved design of this hook, it would also secure a watch to the pin safely if a brooch-converter was used to turn this into a pendant.
