Aquadive Caribbean

Why We Love It

It is no secret that vintage diving watches are at the top of our list of must-have cool stuff. 

Sure, the commonly associated brands make some pretty iconic stuff (think Blancpain, Rolex, Omega, DOXA), but some of the coolest pieces come from lesser-known brands. Their names may not have survived the quartz crisis, but some of their watches did - providing a window back in time to a world where the ocean depths were just beginning to be explored.

This watch, an Aquadive Caribbean, was produced sometime in the late 60s or early 70s, and features a Jenny Caribbean Triple-Safe monocoque case design. With a supremely cool rotating acrylic dive timing bezel and a bright blue dial displaying a gorgeous patina, it is one of the coolest vintage diver models we've had the fortune to offer.

The Story

During the mid 1960s, the Jenny (pronounced "Yanni") Watch Company patented their MONOBLOC Triple-Safe case designs,  which were used on their own self-branded pieces, as well as sold to brands such as Jacques Monnat, Dugena, Haste, Jacquet Droz, Fortis, Aquadive and Philip Watch, among others.  These early professional-grade divers were all marketed with the "Caribbean" name, signifying their aquatic pedigree.  The designer of these pieces contributed his knowledge and technical know-how to the development of the earliest DOXA Sub Series divers, forming a connection with the brand early on.  

Fast forward in 2011, a company bought back AQUADIVE spare parts and relaunched the reliable watch brand. Based in Pforzheim in Germany, the brand relaunched AQUADIVE paying tribute to the legendary watches of the 1960s and 70s, while remaining 100% authentic.
