Heuer for Abercrombie and Fitch: Seafarer 2444

Throughout the 20th century, and long before Abercrombie and Fitch was a lame mall brand, it was the place for explorers, athletes, hunters, fishermen, etc., to buy gear needed for their adventures.

Charles Lindbergh was geared up in A&F when he flew solo across the Atlantic, and Ernest Hemingway supposedly killed himself with a shotgun he purchased at A&F in NYC…

Here is a Seafarer ref 2444, made by Heuer for A&F sometime in the late 50s.  The subdial on the left tells us what time high and low tides are throughout the day.  Each day, the tide wheel advances one click, so that it keeps up with the lunar cycle.
