Hello all... This should fit well on 'Retro'

In late 1969 - Jan. 1970, the rich father of a friend had an expensive stereo equipment. Stuck in my retina for decades, the turntable featured a drooling "Jewel mounted" mechanisms and the number of jewels on it. Cannot say for sure the brand/model but smells to me like JVC. It was an era of superb refinement on the tiniest fancy pursuit of audio fidelity and remarkable workmanship continuing all the seventies.
Does anyone know any detail about or seen such jewel mounted tonearm, search engines have not helped yet. Just a nostalgic obsession, nothing important, and I was not dreaming.

All tone arms had some sort of bearing. "Jewel" movements
are nicely low friction (like in watches) but so common that
maybe nobody talks much about them other than in the
sales literature (like, why mention the car comes with 4
tires, when it's expected?).
