What Do They Mean By Asia Automatic Movement (21 Jewel) On A Wrist Watch?
- 1 decade agoFavorite Answer
Movement refers to the inner working of the watch. An automatic watch movement is a mechanical(spring driven watch) that is self winding. The jewels are used as capstones and bearings of some of the moving parts to reduce friction and maintain accurate time keeping. Asian would indicate it is made somewhere in Asia. I wouldn't trust an Asian watch movement unless it is Japanese.

Hi. The jewels were used for bearing surfaces for the gears, automatic or not.
