What does the term “jeweling” mean in watchmaking?

In watchmaking, the term jeweling refers to the placement of all the stones (or rubies ) in the spaces provided for this purpose in the movement of the watch . These stones make it possible to reduce the friction of the parts between them as much as possible, so it is important to place them in the places most exposed to friction.

In this video, you can discover the jeweling of the G100 movement from the La Joux-Perret manufacture, which notably equips watches from our Alliance collection. Here it is done automatically by machines but it can also be done manually.
