    Some hard research on various historical military sites, Simon. Took over a week or so trawling through thousands of images.
    I have quite a few of men and women wearing this type of watch from the late 19th. and early 20th century, including a couple of author Jack London.

    Not trench watches, those are the ones with wire lugs from the early 20th. century, Kaffe.
    These are sometimes called wristlets.

    The above image has been reviewed by the National Army Museum, after David Boettcher asked for permission to use it. They said this;

    The NAM said "Battye was awarded three medals (one for Chitral posthumously). He appears to be wearing two ribbons in this photo. That indicates he was already awarded the IGS medal and the Afghanistan medal for the 2nd Anglo-Afghan War 1878-80 when this image was taken.* Another point is that Battye appears in the Army List for 1879 as Cavy but Inf in 1891. The Corps of Guides have both but he is Infantry in this photograph. The Guides Infantry were part of the First Brigade during the 1891 Black Mountain Expedition so this unit were there." Hope that answers your question.

    Other giveaway is that in the photo, Lt. Battye has his rank insignia on his epaulettes, and until 1880 the insignia would have been on the collar.

    This is the new entry in the NAM archive, where the original came from.







    So my image from 1888, and another of the Highland & Southerners from the same year featuring a similar watch, are still the oldest known photos, both found by me.

    Stand corrected, was just a bit peeved that I posted the 1888 photo on this thread right at the beginning and zero comment.
    Maybe itís me but seems to happen quite often, I post something to zero reaction someone else posts the same thing later

    I'm sure they would have been ladies fob watches in those leather wristlets. They look too large for a normal Gents size.

    A little known fact is that these officers were en route to their local Rolex AD to place orders on a Daytona. I'm glad to announce that they picked their watches up last week.

    Pics of watches worn well

    Poster in a service station Costa today.
    Not sure what it is supposed to project, but the single outstanding thing to me is the nonchalant super-loose, badly fitting end piece, ubiquitous diver type watch.
    Maybe an Orient, on closer look?

    Cool as fook when you donít care about your watch, I reckon.

    France's third astronaut (3eme spationaute) Michel Tognini ....



    .... wore his Yema Spationaute III Aragatz almost constantly between 1988 and 1992:



    Even in the official publicity photos for his own Antares Mission:




    He still wears it occasionally (photo from November 2018):
