The Aquadive 1000M vintage diver watch under the company Jenny. It’s a monobloc case, meaning it’s a one big piece of steel case.

When Jenny created the Caribbean 1000, it was the very first 1000m dive watch and the patents were first registered in 1964 with a tripple safe one piece case.

It was later branded by Jenny for Philip Watch, Jaques Monnat, Jaquet Droz, Ollech & Wajs, Aquadive, Fortis, and probably some others.

Today the Jenny Family currently own Doxa.

My latest Seiko, the Marine Master 300.

When I saw the sales post in SCWF, I couldn’t resist and emailed Kucimo, who’s the seller.

After a few email exchange and googling around for his sales history, I was more assured about the transaction as it’s not a small amount.

So he shipped it out on Monday, and I got it on Wednesday ! EMS shipping rocks.

Upon receiving the parcel, it’s a real hassle to open it as it’s very well packed with multiple layers of tape but you will know that the watch is well protected and it will be safe and sound inside.

My first impression of the watch when I took it out, is WOW. The sweeping second hand, the solid 1 piece case (monocoque), the finishing, dial and hands, it’s a work of art.


A very solid and heavy piece
