I tried to look them up on ebay just to get a general idea how much they cost. I typed in "pocket watch case opener" and got nothing but the knife case openers and the suction cup case openers. I don't know what I should have typed to search for these kinds in this thread. I really can't give a price range because I know nothing about them and I'm not sure how to look for them.

Default Case Openers, Fobs, etc.

Here are a few more case openers, fobs, etc. the two items top, center are dies for stamping paper labels from the Westclox factory, and the silver fob and chain on the bottom was a fork in a previous life!

Rob, that fork fob is great! I like it because its owner made it himself or got it from someone who made it.

Thanks Laura, I acquired it with a group of "Dollar watches" that I purchased
from a fellow that I met at the Amarillo Regional in November of 2007. After the show he sent me a box of watches and the chain and fob were just thrown in with the lot. It also turns out to be Sterling which I thought was pretty neat. You are right the, the personal touch that it was given by its original craftsman really makes the item!
