    Re: Lets see some Jenny wrist shots

    Chris's wrist has been SO lonely up in this piece for the last three weeks, that I forced to steal Taddyangles' wrist shot from the "So how do you use the Caribbean 300 bezel?" thread, and post it here for him.

    Jenny owner's, don't force me to use these guerrilla tactics again; post your wrist shots, like the man said! LOL.

    Yup, time to post a wrist shot. I've been wearing this the past couple of days, and I absolutely love it. The decompression table bezel just gives it an extra edge of "cool".

    I'm really liking the bezel on that one. I'm hoping that someday Jenny will make alternate bezels available, so we can switch out to the one that best suits our individual needs. Having the choice between the decompression bezel (what's currently offered), the elapsed-time bezel (like yours), and the 12 hr bezel (another vintage option) would be really awesome. Can't wait to see more pics of your vintage 700.

    I'm really diggin' the blue. The one thing I've been wondering about is the fit/comfort. It looks like it sits nicely on the wrist. Is that a good observation?

    My biggest concern regards the strap. Does the strap do what the DOXA rubber does, refuse to bend around the top of your wrist?

    The blue is definitely my favorite, and to me, is what's iconic to Jenny. DOXA has their signature orange, and Jenny is all about the Caribbean blue.

    The strap is nothing like the DOXA strap, and I know for a lot of guys, that's good news. At the lugs, the strap angles downward, so the fit is contoured to the wrist. If I had one complaint, it would be the softness. It's super soft and comfortable, but because of this, the tail of the strap is always coming out of the last strap keeper. Other than that, it's perfect, and is somewhere between a silicone and an Isoftane, regarding softness. However, if that strap doesn't do it for you, there's the Isofrane option. Right now, I put the one I have on a dark blue Iso, and it looks great. It really changes the look.

    That is GOOD news! The strap sounds a bit like the natural rubber that came on my Auricoste....comfy. The Isofrane straps bug me with their lack of taper, and their thickness...although I do love the buckles they come on. Yeah, I know....picky picky!

    Thanks for further dangling the carrot in front of the horse!

    Can anyone further indulge me with some lume shots?

    That dial sure looks incredible in the light! Sort of has this glittery effect. Wonder if it's an age thing, or did the factory use a crackle finish on their dials that just happens to create a sparkle effect?

    Looking pretty posh!
