There are indications that Jewell was connected with Weston. Rider's Perpetual lists all Jewell models under the name of Weston.
To aviod uncontrolled dispersal of models in RMorg we concentrate both Jewell and Weston here in one place.
That may also help to keep Jewel and Jewell products separate.

Weston soll angeblich eine Konzernfirma von Schlumberger sein. Ab wann, ist nicht bekannt. Siehe Radio Elektronik Schau, Heft 12, 1972.
Jewell (with double l) appears on the dial of a radio which is allocated (obviously in error) to Jewel (manufacturer, with single l) in "Machine Age to jet Age", vol.2, p.161.

Hallo zusammen,ich habe einen Spannungsmesser geschenkt bekommen.Meßbereich 0-5V.Hinten sind zwei verstellbare Stifte, ähnlich der  Röhrenstifte.Das Gerät ist handlich, 50mm Durchmesser.Ich denke es war zum überprüfen von Heizspannungen, direkt an der Fassung gedacht.Auf der Skala steht: Weston Electrical Instrument Corps.Newark.N.J.USA
