Jewels
Quality mechanical pocket watches are jewelled. Little pieces of ruby, sapphire, garnet (and sometimes glass or synthetic jewels) are used as bearings for the moving parts to reduce friction as the wheel pivots rotate. A fully jewelled watch has 17 jewels 

Albert
Probably named after Prince Albert, these pocket watch chains are designed to be used on a waistcoat. A single Albert attaches to the waistcoat button hole with the watch at the other end being placed in the waistcoat pocket. The double Albert has a second chain onto which a cigar cutter, key or Vespa box could be attached.  

Repeater
This is a pocket watch with a chime at the hour. Popular watches in the Victorian period, but not so common now.
