Fig. 5 is a perspective view of the anchor watch-strap per se. i In the modi?cation of the invention disclosed in Figs. 6 and '7 means is provided for reenforcing the end of the strap-like member l2 which is pro; vided with the anchor-like projections l3. person illustrating an anchor watch-strap con Fig. 4 is a rear elevational view of the watch having one end of the anchor watch-strap con nected with one of the spring bars. > Means is provided for attaching the top end 1 of the strap-like member 12 with an article of This reenforcement means is characterized by a sheet metal piece 2i! which is inserted into the end of the strap-like member l2. A slit 2| is extended inwardly from the end of the strap like member l2 forming a front layer and a back layer. The piece of sheet metal 29 is inserted into this slit between the layers and will ?t integrally therein its anchor-like projections ?tting into the corresponding anchor-like projections 13. A means is provided for securing the layers of the strap-like member I2 and the piece of sheet 55 metal 20 together as an integral unit.‘ This means 2,411,446 comprises rivets 22 passed through the layer and through the sheet metal piece 20. Reenforcing the bottom end of the strap-like member I2 will prevent it from becoming acci dentally disengaged from the bottom spring bar I I. This reenforcement piece 20 will prevent this end from being pulled through the space between the spring bar and the watch case and will retain the anchor-like projections l3 imposition behind the lugs '14 which support the bottom ‘sp'ring'bar ' II. In other respects this form of the invention is similar to that previously shown and like refer ence numerals identify like parts in each of the several views. ‘ While I have illustrated and described the pre~ ferred embodiments of my invention, it is to be . understood that I do not limit myself to the pre cise constructions herein disclosed and the right is reserved to all changes and modi?cations com— ing within the scope of the invention as'de?ned in the appended'claiins. I Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by United States Letters Patent is: 1. An anchor watch-strap, comprising a strap like member having anchor-like projections on I) the sides of the bottom of one of its ends for en gaging the bottom lugs which support the bot- ‘ tom one of the spring bars of a watch when said strap-like member is laced by starting with said end at the back of the watch and continuing over and around the front of said bottom bar and up the back of said watch whereby said mem ber may then be laced under and. up the front of the top bar of said watch, and means for at taching the top end of said member with an ar tide of one’s clothing. 2.
