    ~ Hi CW Gang ~

    Hello all, hope you can help me some on these. I believe they are stopwatches (not sure of the time settings they are for). All the same. chrome (not black as that is just how the pic looks) but all chrome. Made in Switzerland, and have 7 jewels in them. So anyone know exactly the model of these? The time setting speed? The years made? Valuable or not with 7 jewels in them?? The back of them all have the same red round label on them. Is stop watch on here one word or two words?? Any info will help.

    Thanks for LOOKING // LOVING !!
    ~ STAY SAFE ~

      antiquerose, I found a tool for helping people date Heuer stopwatches (and yes, it's one word, "stopwatch"):

      https://ikonicstopwatch.com/heuer-stopwatch-identification/

      Yours all have cylindrical crowns, so I think they're probably 1970s vintage:

      Unfortunately, that still means one has to look through at least a dozen catalogs from the 1970s and late 1960s. :-(

      @keramikos - Thank you for the info. Are they a certain time type ?? Having jewels in them make them any rarer or $$

      Will look at those links - Thanks

      You're welcome. :-)

      No idea about rarity or value, but here is a glossary of terms for stopwatches, and jewel is addressed:

      *snip*

      Jewel - ruby within stopwatch; increases accuracy and useful life of mechanical stopwatch through less wear of parts.

      *snip*

      https://www.stopwatchesusa.com/stopwatch-glossary/

      So the jewels in stopwatches (and presumably other time pieces) are indeed jewels in the sense that most people understand the term, but I imagine that they're industrial quality rubies:
