watches : Some Jaquet-Droz watches, pre SWATCH : A 1000-meter JD Diver


This case was made by Jenny and using their monoblock front loading 1000m Caribbean case( the bezel pops off and a screw down retainer ring holding the crystal is removed, then dial and movement comes out the front utilizing a special split stem system) . It was a very cool watch with a very unique case design. Apparently the Jaquet Droz variants were by far the rarest of all the Marques that used the 1000m caribbean case (Phillip watch, Ollech and Wajs, and Jenny to name a few examples)
