The number of jewels used in watch movements increased over the last 150 years as jewelling grew less expensive and watches grew more accurate. The only bearings that really need to be jeweled in a watch are the ones in the going train - the gear train that transmits force from the mainspring barrel to the balance wheel - since only they are constantly under force from the mainspring. The wheels that turn the hands (the motion work) and the calendar wheels are not under load, while the ones that wind the mainspring (the keyless work) are used very seldom, so they do not wear significantly. Friction has the greatest effect in the wheels that move the fastest, so they benefit most from jewelling. So the first mechanism to be jeweled in watches was the balance wheel pivots, followed by the escapement. As more jeweled bearings were added, they were applied to slower moving wheels, and jewelling progressed up the going train toward the barrel. A 17 jewels watch has every bearing from the balance wheel to the mainspring barrel jeweled, so it was considered a 'fully jeweled' watch.

 

This beautiful wristwatch has the TWO ORIGINAL movements in an excellent status which was very well saved, considering age of this watch. Mechanisms have been recently serviced to ensure it winds and sets smoothly while keeping great, accurate time.

It is fitted on a new 20mm black alligator style genuine leather strap with STAINLESS steel buckle that is vintage style and goes great with this wonderful watch.

This beautifully preserved timepiece measures 44mm end to end and 31mm in width (35mm with crown).

This beautiful and fully restored Art DeCo men’s watch winds and sets smoothly while keeping accurate time.

Because of the vintage nature of the watch I cannot guarantee its absolute time keeping accuracy even if they are in good running condition and in some rare occasions may require additional adjustment.
