The Honest Watch

Just before receiving my Jenny Caribbean I was wearing a 3000m deep diver as my daily wear watch. This was a tremendous watch, but it is HUGE and HEAVY and, well, overkill. Oh I totally understand the prowess behind creating a watch that is water-resistant to 3000m, but what I did not know at the time was that what I really wanted was an honest watch.

The strange part is that I did not know it until I actually had it in my hands. In fact, I had no idea what I was missing, as I had been wearing giant deep divers for what feels like years. One after the other and I often felt that if it was not large enough or “imposing” enough, it was not for me. How wrong I was.

I had completely forgotten how a simple design, with just the right amount of attention to detail could be so satisfying.  Wearing the Jenny brings me back to a simpler time when collecting watches used to make me happy and somewhat content. Lately, I have always been after the “next one” and not enjoying the one on my wrist. This is not the case with the Jenny.

Its retro, no nonsense design has brought me back to a simpler, more honest time and when I look down at my watch I smile. Not too big, not too thick, 300m water-resistant for anything I can throw at it and gorgeous dial/hands, not to mention a true Swiss heart; what else could you ask for?


In all seriousness, the Holiday season is upon us and I would like to wish all our readers a warm & healthy HAPPY HOLIDAYS! May all your watches be HONEST ones!
