    Welcome to the forum. A pocket watch does not need to have the full jewel count but your 11 does seem a bit odd. The movement is a Moeris Cal. 19A, details of which are here:

    bidfun-db Archiv: Uhrwerke: Moeris 19'''A

    ...where it states that versions were made with 7 or 15 jewels. However, even if there has been a simple mixing of parts, one should not arrive at 11 jewels. If a geartrain bridge of a 7 jewel movement was used as a replacement for a 15 jewel movement, you should get 9 jewels (the escapement wheel should also remain unjewelled). It is possible that your watch has been "customized" along the line but I am at a loss as to why they wouldn't have gone all the way up to 15 jewels while they were at it......
