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 jewel watch has every bearing from the balance wheel to the mainspring barrel jeweled, so it was considered a 'fully jeweled' watch.

The movement is signed GRUEN WATCH CO – VERITHIN – 17 JEWELS – 5 ADJ – SUISSE – V.7. Also it signed the movement serial number #604.158.

 

This beautiful wristwatch has the ORIGINAL GRUEN movement in an excellent status which was very well saved, considering age of this watch and has been in addition updated and engraved by the craftsman. Each part of the mechanism, each millimeter it is decorated by a magnificent magic ornament.

Mechanism has been recently serviced to ensure it winds and sets smoothly while keeping great, accurate time, but please, note, some of the wearable parts on the movement might be replaced, and custom made to fit, since it is close to impossible to find original parts.

 

The Decoring of dial and the Engraving of movement are made in the same style.

 

It is fitted on a new Handmade of THE WANDOLEC ART STUDIO 20mm black alligator style genuine leather strap with gold steel buckle that has a great vintage look to it.

This very fine watch winds and sets very smoothly while keeping very good, 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.

Supplied with Certificate of Seller's Warranty and instructions for care and use of this watch.
