Gold Watch and Chain: Their Complete Victor Recordings (1933–1934) is a compilation of recordings made by American country music group the Carter Family, released in 1998. It is the seventh of nine compilations released by Rounder Records of the group's Victor recordings.[1] The original Carter Family group consisting of Alvin Pleasant "A.P." Delaney Carter, his wife Sara Dougherty Carter, and his sister-in-law Maybelle Addington Carter recorded many of what would become their signature songs for Victor Records.[2]

Emmylou Harris covered "Gold Watch and Chain" on her 1980 album Roses in the Snow.[3]

The tracks have all been digitally remastered and include liner notes by country music historian Charles K. Wolfe.

Music critic William Ruhlman stated in his Allmusic review "... the Carters' usual combination of hymns, traditional folk songs, and other old material continues to fascinate in their renditions, with their rough, expressive singing and innovative playing."[1]
