When okies8 first shared this back in Nov, I was so tempted yet unsure. The yellow is screaming out at me but I was hesitant, so I waited for more photos of the actual watch, as they slowly appear on WUS, I decided to jump onto it. Placed an order by end of Nov, the watch finally arrived almost a month later.
At the first glance, it’s almost exactly a replica of the original Jenny Caribbean, the distinct differences are bigger case, screwed down case back vs a monobloc case design, dial and hands and the logo used.
The old and new side by side, the bezel with the decompression table is what stands out in both Jenny.
It’s like falling in love all over again, the perfectly finished brushing on case, the bezel turns smoothly and clicks into alignment. Not a diver, so I can’t make any sense out of the decompression table along the bezel.
The case back is very different with Jenny’s first logo, the Xiphias (sword fish). Quoting from Doxa announcement, “The new (old) logo is historical to JENNY watches and represents a the early days in the evolution of the Jenny Caribbean.”
The original fish logo for reference, which is currently adopted in all Doxa sub watches.
Signed buckle, since we are on the topic of strap, I have very mixed feelings about it, I believe other owners shared the same as well. It’s very comfortable but it picks up dust and lint like magnet. The strap have to go.
Signed crown with the new old logo.
Symbol of Quality, 50 years apart.
