Might be a lesser grade Eric but still a great looking movement and dial, I can see why the Seth Thomas are your favourites, thank you once again for the photos and education.

Best Regards,

The Model 8 line could be found with either honest or show-off jewelling. If the train gears had a hole jewel on both ends of it's respective staff, then the paired jewels played a part in reducing friction. If the jewels were installed only on the upper plate, then they were more for looks than functionality since the lower pivots were simply bushed into the pillar plate - like the two-tone Model 8 pictured below with a total jewel count of 11:

The tip-off is the lack of a regulator gooseneck.

It fronts an unusual fancy dial with a pale blue background and red Arabic numerals.

Like the Edgemere line, the Republic was available in the open-face and hunter Models 12 and 13, respectively, and could be had in a variety of jewel counts, patterns, and the choice between straight nickel and two-tone.

Another variant of the Model 13 Republic:
