Catalogue Note

Heuer started producing watches for Abercrombie & Fitch in the mid-1940s and it was the president of the American company himself, who would visit Ed. Heuer & Co. in Switzerland to decide on new models suitable for sale through his flagship store on Madison Avenue in New York City. Abercrombie & Fitch, famous for being an upscale outfitter for sporting goods at the time, tailored these models to adventurers. Therefore the collaboration includes various chronographs, alarm, dual-time zone and dive watches. A particularly interesting model is the Seafarer with tide indication dial such as the present lot. The case reference is 2446C, which is the last one before the Seafarer models were discontinued in the mid-1970s.
