Comments about the data

pin-lever escapement
indirect minute, hand friction clutch on barrel (Roskopf type)
stem mechanism without setting-lever spring
The movement has 14 or 15 functional jewels - quite many for a pin-lever movement.
Further bright blue jewels are just for show:
If the impulse pin is made of steel instead jewel, there is such jewel between the bearings of 3rd and 4th wheel, to achieve at least 15 jewels (Fig.1).
Further 2 or 6 jewels to achieve 17 or 21 jewels sit in a tiny round plate, particularly made for this purpose (Fig.2 bottom left).
