FS: vintage Aquadive Jenny Caribbean 1000m Ref.706 Square Case

I am offering up from my collection this very nice 70's Aquadive Caribbean 1000m, case made by Jenny of Switzerland... 41mm x 48mm SS square/concha/shell #706 case... stunning yellow-trimmed hand-set with lollipop seconds hand! signed Jenny 'fish' crown... full service and pressure-test in 2011 and rarely worn after that... but since it is a vintage watch, I will not guarantee water-resistance... I will include the service receipt from the well-known watchmaker near Chicago... the watch runs and sets perfectly... I will include a vintage Tropic-style square-hole rubber strap that complements the square case very nicely...

I've only seen a couple of these ever come up for sale in years of collecting... and this one is in better condition than most!

some history on the Jenny family and their watches...

"The rich history of JENNY watches began more than 50 years ago. Gustav Jenny (1889–1983) started out manufacturing, assembling and finishing watches and watch components for established Swiss watch brands. In 1963, his son, Paul G. Jenny (1918–1978), established Jenny & Cie S.A. in Lengnau / Switzerland, and introduced their first line of dive watches, the JENNY Caribbean, which was soon to become the world's first 1000 meter water resistant dive watch, patented in Switzerland under Brev. 5292/68 Triple safe. This patented watch case system called MONOBLOC Caribbean Triple safe (one piece case construction) becomes very famous.

And the story continues... in 1969 Paul G. Jenny and his brothers Hans and Werner applied to patent a decompression bezel, US Patent no.3,613,354. Within 10 years, JENNY watches had set new standards and become a world leader in manufacturing water resistant dive watches. Jenny & Cie S.A. has provided dive watches, watch design and constructions to watch companies, like Philip Watch®, Dugena®, Haste de Luxe®, Eisenhardt®, Jacques Monnat®, Jaquet Droz®, Aquadive®, Fortis®, Ollech & Wajs®, and many more. For 3 decades Jenny & Cie S.A. continued to supply many Swiss, German, Italian and American watch brands with extremely well engineered watches and watch cases, bearing the JENNY fish logo. JENNY watches prides itself in being among the very few Swiss watch brands that are independent and still family owned, with members of the family who witnessed the early days of Jenny & Cie S.A. still actively contributing to the re-launch in 2012."
