Jewels  (external link)(usually synthetic rubies or sapphires) are used in mechanical timepieces and other measuring instruments as bearings  (external link)for improved accuracy and bearing life. The color is a characteristic of the synthetic jewel. Not sure if that answers your question...

QUOTED IMAGE

The jewels in watches are synthetic Corundum for the most part. The cost is relatively low and the durability and surface allow them to be polished so that they can be as close to friction free as possible. Friction in a watch movement is not good, it contributes to reducing accuracy.

There are some way out movement designs that have explored using other items. I'm sure that our great Moderator has probably seen or heard of some over the years.:)

A friend of mine was showing of me his late Model Racing Porche. It had a special suspension that uses a magnetic liquid to adjust it. I would imagine that watch companies have explored using something similar as well.

yeah but factories are producing these watches in large amounts and keep costs down due to economies of scale. This shows at least there is a strong demand for automatic watches.

oh, and another tip that was also mentioned by canonised: set your watch to 10:09 and 34 seconds if you want to do stock photos.

10:09:34 should not be used as a hard rule. 10:09 obscures subdials, so I'd venture to say that setting your watch depends on the layout of the face and purpose of the image.
