Please enlighten (!)... What are the jewels for?

And why do the Japan made models have them and not the singapore ones???

Oh....

And why this post? :p

Awesome, thanks Brendan.

Simon, this is mostly for my benefit, I was asking him about Seikos, we both pretty much decided to take our discussion public for all to learn...

I think the 007J (JAPAN) and the 007K (Singapore/unknown) are the same other than some text on the face. Best I can tell they are identical mechanically.

GoogleFu on Jewels as petaining to watches;
"The jewel movement involves the use of jewels within the mens watches to act as bearings at the wheel train as well as around the escapement lever. These are areas within a watch component where wear and tear is the most prominent.

Tiny synthetic gem crystals are set between many of the gears, in order to reduce friction. These gems resist temperature better than metal, and hold lubricant much longer.

Originally, the natural rubies were used before a major switch to industrial-grade or synthetic rubies for cost efficiency reason. There are two important points about rubies that make them suitable to be used as bearings.

Firstly they are extremely hard (it can be as hard as diamonds) to withstand high frequency of abrasion and wearing. Secondly, its smooth surface is perfect for the various steel components in the watch to operate on with much reduced friction.

With the high load and high speed motions within watches, the two advantages of ruby clearly outweigh any possibility of using steel bushings.

You can actually hear the jewel movement working. The ticking noise of mechanical watches are actually made by two rubies banging into the steel teeth of the escape wheel. You should make sure to have your watch serviced every five years, as the toughness of the rubies can erode the steel if not properly looked after.

There are many categories of jewel movement, for example, 17 jewels, 21 jewels, or 25 jewels. The actual meaning of these numbers is just a representation on the number of rubies used within the mens watches.

Does it mean that having a 21 jewel movement would equate to better quality than a 17 jewel movement?

Well, not really. The higher numbers reflects more jewels used for the parts to prevent more specific wearing. Or watches with more moving mechanical components would require additional rubies to be fitted in to reduce friction in these areas.

A simple example would be automatic watches that use only 4 &#8211]http://www.mens-watches-guide.com/jewel-movement.html[/url]

Thanks Bok! ;)

Some are certainly inexpensive BUT the red isn't. Then again considering what I have been known to spend collecting knives, Spyderco's and Customs mainly, it is relatively cheap...........certainly you can get orange and black Monsters for VERY reasonable prices as my Kids are about to find out.

I'm going to get one or two of the cheaper variety for wearing generally at work etc. NOT keen to wear my Red out before it's time.

The Blue and Yellow are next............ :D
