Hi all, I got this watch at a yard sale in a box with 5 other watches, I was able to find the others online, this one is harder to find info on, I plan on selling them to put towards a new watch, I've had a couple offers, but no clue on value, I asked for help on another forum a few days ago, no info just a offer to buy it, so if anyone here could help that would be wonderful.

watch works, the crystal is pretty scratched, with a nice band and new crystal it would be a great watch..
it says..

front:
Jenny
17 Jewels

Automatic
1000 Meters
3300 fts

back:
Full Steel Swiss Made Brev+387551
Super waterproof 708 Automatic incabloc 70694
Caribbean Triple-Safe

Thank you
Russell

Gorgeous find, and valuable as well.

I couldn't price it for you, but it would easily fetch over $1k assuming it is real (and yes, there are quite a few fake Jenny Caribbean models floating around out there).

That is a beauty! ... Consider cleaning it up and wearing it?
Agreed, I would send it to a pro to have it serviced and restored a bit and then wear the hell out of it.
If it is real, the value will only increase over time.

yeah, but i think the "toilet bowl" Caribbeans were the ones that were faked. 95% of the ones you see on the boards are fake-

Yeah, those are my personal favorite, and someone made a killing a while back selling those fakes on ebay and on the forums.
I've heard of some of the other models being faked as well, but the Caribbean 2000 is the biggest counterfeit culprit.

I was having trouble posting pictures a while ago. I have found the easiest way is to use another third party site to load the photos, and then just copy and paste them in. You can use a little code to like to them too if you are so inclined.

I use Photobucket (it's free) load my photos up to them, and then use their url link to post photos here.
