Paul Peugeot Caribbean 1000

Established in 1957, Paul Peugeot (not to be confused with the car manufacturer) might now be known as a maker of fashion watches, but this diver proves that they once had some purpose-built tool watches in their arsenal.

In the 1960s, Swiss watch manufacture Jenny created a case design that took the watch world by storm.

The MONOBLOC Triple-Safe design consisted of a one-piece case with a decompression bezel that the Jenny brothers patented in 1969. Beneath the crystal, the dial was coated with Scotchlite to guarantee maximum visibility underwater.  Like many watches of the era, these divers—dubbed Caribbean 1000 after the watch’s then-record-breaking depth rating—were offered in vibrant colors.

Jenny sold the watch to many different manufacturers, from Dugena to Fortis and many in between—Paul Peugeot being one of them.

While there were a variety of case styles and dial configurations produced under the Caribbean name, they all followed a fairly simple formula: tough, professional grade watches with colorful design elements. For the dial of this diver, Paul Peugeot chose a black color that contrasts with the yellow accents of the bezel and the hour markers and hands. Whether the yellow was a technical or an aesthetic choice, we can’t be sure, but we can’t deny that the effect is striking.

With a sharp case capped by a rotating acrylic outer bezel, it's easy to see that this timepiece's roots are anchored in classic dive watch lineages. Originally water resistant to 1000 Meters, it features a dial fashioned in the traditional DOXA style with decorative script under a warm domed acrylic crystal. Whether strapped on a colorful NATO (we recommend black and yellow) or on an old-school rubber Tropic-style strap, this watch is the perfect cure for the dive watch doldrums.
