Answer
Too far out of the field of electrical engineering.  

My opinion is that 21 jewel is maximum for wrist watch and 19 jewel is most common.

Resale value falls into to categories:

1.  Expensive class such as Rolex:

The above examples sell for thousands of dollars.

2. Cheap class of watches:

They are very inexpensive and have small market.

Most ordinary watches are of electronic design now days.

Only vintage and esoteric watch are interesting to collectors and connoisseurs.

That is an opinion only.  I am not an expert for watches.
