What does jewels mean in watches?
With the arrival of "The General Railroad Timepiece Standards"
for a railroad watch in 1893 there was a well established relevance
between the number of jewels a pocket watch possesses and its
accuracy. Initially the railroad system adopted 17 jewel movements
as the "minimum" necessary for the railroad watches of its
conductors and engineers. By the early twentieth century many
railroad companies specified 19 jewels or more. While there are
watches that where made to resemble a railroad watch with less
jewels, they were made as cheaper imitations for the general
You may have noticed that there are tiny red or pink dots at various places on the bridge and pillar plate of your railroad watch. These are the jewels. This diagram illustrates the location of the jewels on a 16 size, 23 jewel Illinois "Bunn Special" railroad watch.
Generally they are unless they are electronic watches.
There's a good discussion of jewels in watches here: http://elginwatches.org/help/watch_jewels.html
Jewels are used in watches at friction points. You can get them to a very fine point and they will not wear down like metal. So at a point that a gear will be turning for days and days, they use a jewel. if they used metal the point would soon wear to a round nub. Like the end of a ball point pen. increasing friction, and slowing the watches movement. Decreasing the accuracy of… Read More
Jewels in watch terms are gem bearings that were used within the mechanical assembly inside the watch to reduce friction. Many of the low to medium range watches produced commonly used garnet or quartz. Top quality mechanical watches used Sapphire, Ruby or Diamond bearings as the gems have a lower coefficient than garnet or quartz.
Highwaymen would steal anything of value (money, jewels, watches, etc).
The number of jewels do not correlate to water resistance.
Reducing friction is important to watchmaking. Instead of metal moving against metal, watch makers discovered that jewels cause little friction or wear. Jewels are hard and don't wear down very quickly. By the time of the American revolution, tiny doughnut shaped rubies were being inserted into pivot points on watches to keep them from coming into direct contact with the edges of the hole. This in turn would make the watch last much longer. The… Read More
Clock jewels are the bearings used in expensive spring-wound clocks and watches, so called because they use a natural or synthetic jewel surface such as ruby or sapphire.

The "jewels" in a jeweled movement watch are not the ones that you see on the outside. Polished jewel "bearings" are created for the moving parts inside the watch. If all of the moving parts were "metal on metal", the watch would wear out much sooner. Jeweled movement watches last longer and are able to go longer between maintenance.
Yea... of course they see the real jewels depends if u mean the Cohinoor yea and the crown Jewels OF COURSE!!!!!!!!
It just means there's 17 jewels in the movement. Typically jewels are mostly used in mechanical watches. The jewels are tiny pieces of [usually manmade] rubies that serve as low-friction bearings in critical parts that move very quickly and very often. Using traditional materials may not work as the high friction may cause those parts to wear down more quickly, thus requiring more frequent (and costly) repair and maintenance services.

You say in them and not "on them" so I assume you are talking about the movement. Hand-wound and automatic movements always have "jewels". They are man-made rubies used as friction-reducing bearings. A few high-end quartz movements also utilize these rubies, only not nearly as many.
