Hi, have seen this listing on ebay, the watch face and desciption say 21 jewels but I can only see 5 jewels on the movement? It’s a Welsh Smiths of course but there seem to be a few similar ones on google. Could I have thoughts?

Hello Sherlock and welcome..
The jewels one most obviously can see usually are those one can see like in these pictures. I would say one always should spot atleast 6 of them right away on the back side if they are there that is, some lower grade movements uses less jewels.
As you already know the jewels are both in the dial side and on the back, so you have to start multiplying every jewel you find  times two.
So in this case it is atleast 14 jewels (the balance has 4 with it's cap jewels too) which is the minimum for a movement like this to keep somewhat accurate time.
Unfortunately I'm not aquainted to these Smith movements but i'm sure someone in this forum is.
