    mustangtony,
    Jewels in a watch are bearings made of a diamonds, sapphires, rubies, & garnets. the diamond is the hardest but is seldom used except for cap jewels. The sapphire is the next in hardness and is the most commonly used because of its fine texture. Garnets are softer than sapphires & rubies.
    Most American watches have either 7, 11, 15, 17, 19, 21, or 23 jewels. Most Hamilton military watches are 22 jewels. There are also 24, 25 & 26 jeweled watches.
    The greater the jewel count the higher the quality of the movement.
    I'm not an expert by any means, just love collecting them.
    Watches described as "dollar watches" are inexpensive and are not jeweled movements.
    Hope this helps,
    Dave
