On some watch dials I see the jewels written as "17 камень" but on others as "17 камней". I studied some Russian in school years ago, but not enough to know if this is simply a minor difference in wording, or, if one is authentic and one is a fake.
Working on a 15/0 Elgin, Gr 673. Beautiful movement with a free running train and an balance that swings FOREVER after a puff. Problem: Pallet fork is difficult to seat and when I think I have it seated, it is very sluggish. It doesn't flick from post to post. I have examined the jewels...
Helle everybody :)
Found this old watch, which works. It's a manual winding watch, and it's named M* and states that it got 17 jewels and something called incabloc. But I can't seem to find any information about this watch on the web, and therefore I made this post, because maybe some of you...
I recently got into watch collecting and really fell in love with Seikoes.
On some of the watches they have a label that say something like "24 jewels". I was wondering what's the significant of jewels is. Also what is the significant of the number? I see the number ranges from 19-25.
Please forgive me if this is not in the proper thread and if not, where to ask this.
I'm curious about the quantity of jewels in high accuracy quartz watches. How many jewels are normally in high accuracy quartz watches? At what point or how many jewels does a quartz watch...
Hey everyone, I've recently got this Elgin pocket watch and I can't really see the jewels that are supposed to be there. All I see are the brass fittings and the jewel on the centre wheel. This is quite unlike the Hamilton 992B which I have where you can see that the red/pink jewels are clearly...

Can someone tell me something about it?
I got it from a friend, he did not like it, it...
I recently purchased a vintage Fortis triple calendar watch with moonphase and am very happy with it. I am rather new to vintage watches, and I am wondering about the jewel count. The dial says 17 jewels, but the movement says 21 jewels. Does this mean there was a marriage of dial and...

I have always been really interested in watches and they have always appealed to me in any shape or size. So I went to an auction today and ended up coming home with a lot of mixed watches. Amongst the watches was a rather interesting looking vintage Ingersoll...
Do you guys know if Russian Quartzes had jewels in them? I have seen some but not the movement. What are the jewels used for? Are these electro-mechanicals? Do they have the sweep hand or regular quartz ticking?

Hello, I just got a Perrelet Retrograde / Regulator model A1041/C via FedEx today.
My question is that the movement says "engraved" 21 Jewels but the manual says it is supposed to have "36 rubis".
It is supposed to be a P-221 automatic movement and according the Perrelet website, that movement...
