    Hi

    For me new acquisition, since it is a grail of very long date and very appreciated vintage dive chronograph, the Jenny Carribean 1000 Valjoux 72 Discotron. It was the first 1000m waterproof monobloc chronograph based on Jenny's triple safe system.

    Attention it is not a small watch, it is a particular watch which appreciates in connoisseur seen its relative rarity.

    Pictures of the seller, I will post my photos as soon as it arrives.

    Have a good day

    Best regards

    Georges

    Good Evening

    Now my own photos of the carribean 2000 discotron from last saturday. A 1000m Waterproof chrono which is rare nowadays due to its state of conservation and part of the system that made the jenny really waterproof, the system triple safe.I also included the photos with calipers and measures. there is also the trick to know if we are dealing with an authentic jenny bracelet, it must be marked "phigied carribean" with the logo of the dolphin

    Have a nice week end

    Sincerely

    Georges
