Just a guess: Fob watch = pocket watch?
Yep that's right lorne a pocket watch , with a chain that attaches to your buttons lol, the English language can be so different in so many countries.
any links to these thing's would be great.

Re Fob watch - In Australia men's trousers USED to have a tiny Fob pocket ( just big enough for the watch) in the front next to the ordinary pockets where the watch was kept and the safety chain clipped onto the waist band.. the watch was pulled out of the pocket and flipped open to see the time...this was in the days before the wrist watch ..my grandfather used to have one I remember.

So did my father and grandfather back in Cuba. I remember those very well.
Thanks for the memory!
Yep that was what i was after, to bring back some memories for my parent & grandparent.
