I believe pocket watches would go into a vest pocket. I like wearing casual vests.

Those tiny little pockets are great for small amounts of change, for a parking meter, bus, toll or something. Sometimes I put a mini tape measure in one, especially when I'm going to buy lumber for a project and need a certain size frame from the thrift store.

I use the small pocket for a big amount of paper bill. I fold it so it could fit the small pocket.
