Playing with an old Montgomery ward automatic movement for education. Somehow I lost the jewel cap on the balance. Where do I buy a new jewel and cap? Are all jewels the same size?

You lost the jewel and the setting? Depending on the age of the movement you may have to harvest a replacement from an identical scrap movement

I only lost the jewel cap. I do have the setting. Learning g is not as easy as I hoped it would be. I did expect difficulties and good technique seems to be leading the charts for me.

I am currently in Switzerland on vacation. I can’t believe the number of different watch brands that are on sale in windows. I have a lot to learn obvuously!
