Always protect the watches you carry with a watch chain, one slip and it can cost well over $100.00 in repairs. We have dozens of vintage and can custom make almost any chain you want. 

When more than one accessory is ordered or ordered with a watch purchase PayPal will automatically add shipping charges, I will refund the excess shipping cost by a PayPal credit. Caution, chains and straps should not be used to pull your pocket watch out of your pocket. If the watch gets caught and you continue to pull the chain or strap could break or the bow could be pulled loose from the case making it likely that the watch could be dropped. Use the straps and chains as protection from dropping only and not to pull the watch from your pocket!

Custom Made Chains
Tell us what you require and we'll figure the price.
Build your chain just the way you want it. 

You can see the options available for a watch chain are numerous and affect the price. Prices change with gold and silver prices for custom made chains so it is best to determine what you want and either call or email us.

The basic custom chain will be sterling with silver plated ends. This can be upgraded by adding sterling silver end parts and if the sterling chain is gold plated to gold filled ends.

The chain can be upgraded further by using sterling or gold filled split or jump rings for assembly, and further upgraded by using sterling or solid gold no solder jump rings.

Gold chains are sterling silver electroplated  with 18K gold. The charge for the gold plating is $20 for any chain up to 20 inches.

In most cases new gold filled or solid gold chains are just to expensive for most buyers.

 

Please note!! On custom made chains I will send photos of the chain and attachments, you will receive for your approval before assembling the chain. Once you approve the photos and the chain is produced they are not returnable. I cannot always get the exact chain shown in the photos when I re-order either because it is not available or the cost are too high. The price of precious metal chains and findings fluctuates wildly and the product I receive, which being close may not exactly match the photos I get of the chain before I order it or the photos of new chain on this page. I do the best I can to maintain continuity of the product but cannot guarantee it. 

The gold filled chain varies significantly in price with each order I receive so sometimes the pricing looks a little strange. The findings to complete the chains in gold filled and sterling are quite expensive and there are few suppliers but at least the prices are fairly consistent.

Many vintage chains are not marked and may in fact be gold filled, but unless they are marked I consider them to be gold plated, not gold filled. All of the yellow chains have been cleaned and plated with pure coin gold. I can upgrade the custom made chains by using gold filled T-Bars and solid gold, no solder jump rings. These are nice upgrades but do add to the cost. I use sterling silver, gold plated sterling and gold filled spring rings, split rings, jump rings, claw snaps and swivel snaps on all sterling and gold plated sterling chains.
