Jenny Watches: 1000m Diver Pioneer

Post by Anonymous-3027 » December 11th 2022, 8:24am

We’ve covered many Doxa SUB dive watches over the years, including the Limited Edition Doxa Mission 31 SUB Professional and Doxa SUB 300 Searambler ‘Silver Lung’ Reissue. Founded in 1889 in Le Locle, Switzerland by Georges Ducommun, Doxa has a storied history that started with an 8-day watch movement in 1908 for car and plane dashboards. However, it was the Doxa Sub, introduced in 1966, that led to the company’s current reputation as a dive watch specialist. Doxa, however, has a sister brand, JENNY Watches (pronounced as yen-ny), that produced dive watches from day one. Let’s take a closer look at Jenny Watches, the relatively unknown brand that beat all of the major players to 1,000 metres of depth over 50 years ago.

Super WIS pro tip in this article.

Turns out that Jenny was a white label supplier of dive watches to a lot of Swiss brands , some still well known, for several decades.

But more gray label than white because they usually retained some indications of Jenny manufacture, such as Jenny’s fish logo on case back and crown most commonly, and sometimes dial labeling

That’s pretty interesting
