Aquadive Caribbean 1000M Vintage Diver

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.

Well enough talk. Here are the pics.

Here’s my collection of monobloc cases from Soviet Union, Switzerland and Japan.

Here’s how they stack up

Finally their beautiful case backs (real plain for the Soviet Zlatoust Diver)

Here’s how they wear.

The USSR Zlatoust diver, despite it’s size, it’s only 3ATM or an operating depth of 30m.

No there’s no typo there, given the technology in USSR in the 60s, this is probably the only diver watch before Vostok came out with a 20ATM dive watch around 1967.

As for wearing it ? I doubt anybody can put it off, unless you have 10″ wrist ? It’s 60mm without crown and 80mm from lug to lug and a 20mm crown. 😡

It looks way too big.

My wrist is only 7″, after all, it’s meant to be worn outside a wet suit.

Seiko MarineMaster 300

I think the reason of the case back design is comfort. Despite, a high profile and a heavy case, the MM300 sits pretty well on my wrist and it’s very comfortable.

They are all great watches in their own way, I’m glad to have them in my collection.
