When when seconds don't matter. Wearing the Lord Elgin Westwood from 1961. It has a 10k gold case.

Why do they put jewels inside the watch instead of outside the watch?

Grumpy, your watches add a bit of pleasure to my days.

What? Where is that cool little second hand? It's not the same!
Sweet watch, tho. Simple elegance.

IIRC, the "jewels" are the watch equivalent of wheel bearings, because some geek several hundred years ago figured out that jewels allowed clock and watch gears to move with less friction than other materials. While sticking 'em on the outside might look more blingy, keeping 'em inside for mechanical movements gives the timepieces a better shot at keeping better time... at least that what the family elders led me to believe when I was a kid.

and then there's times when it's really better.

That's right Buzz. Friction reduction.
