If you look at the "Jeeves and Wooster" TV show, you will see Bertie Wooster sporting his watch in this manner.
    It's quite the coincidence that you mention this, because I was wondering if I was seeing a watch chain in the jacket pocket of this photo of John Brown (posted by OC Richard). It's not a doublet and not a double-breasted jacket, but I would think the same issue might be at play. There's no other pocket accessible for a watch. When I look closely at that photo, I see the chain hanging out of the breast pocket, but I also think I see the T-bar and a pendant or two coming out from behind one of the buttonholes on the front of the doublet. Is it a watch?
