Cockney rhyming slang - a kettle

Today's word is kettle. In Cockney parlance a kettle is a watch.
Kettle & hob = fob (watch).

When used in a sentence:
"'Ere this Rolex kettle I bought last week for twenty sovs is a ringer", this translates to "Here, I believe that this Rolex watch what I purchased for twenty quid is a copy".
