    No luck on locating the jewel settings complete Peter.

    The old burnish jewels are also next to impossible to find now. If those were gold settings I would do my very best to find burnish jewels and rub them in to keep the watch original but with the brass settings you may wish to convert them over to readily available friction jewels.

    Seitz friction jewel assortments can be purchased from most watch supply houses. The link to the assortment that Paul posted also looks like a good assortment.

    Wish I had better news for you Peter. I hope this helps.
