    Vintage „Caribbean“ - advice needed - thank you!

    Gentlemen,

    a good friend of mine has had this Caribbean for some time (got it from someone in the family) and thinks about selling the watch:











    Could you assist on an idea of the value? I suspect it was produced along the Jenny Caribbeans etc. but my knowledge of this area is quite limited.

    Thank you for your support!

    Regards, Frank

    Yes it’s a Jenny - clever ‘J-fish’ logo on caseback.

    Early 1970s I think, value quite strong due to the Doxa fanboy connection.

    Probably around the Ł1200 mark, possibly a bit more if the bracelet is signed

    Just make sure it’s the full size one, they did small ladies versions that look similar, hard to tell from photos.
    Cheers..

    Thank you very much - two new photos:





    Looks like 44mm?

    Apparently the watch is not running currently, so I presume a service would help his sale - any tips on who you would recommend?

    Regards, Frank

    Looks like a 706 case; these are huge and not every one's taste.
    Movements are mostly eta, so don't expect a problem to repair. Bracelet seems aftermarket. Original plexies and bezels are almost impossible to find. .Your original bezel seems ok, only a small crack at 12? Glass can be polished but they often have 'internal cracks'. just hope for the best
