1960’s Heuer 2446C Autavia - Abercrombie & Fitch Co Dial - Original Owner
Description: Heuer began supplying watches for Abercrombie & Fitch in the 1940’s. The brand was quite different from the pure clothing brand marketed towards teenagers at malls that we are more familiar with today. A&F Co was focused on hunting and fishing supplies and all the ancillary accessories that went along with that lifestyle. It was targeted at the social elite of there time and included allegedly Hemingway, Howard Hughes and other cultural icons.
