A historical watch! The watch was initially produced in 1000 pieces but given the success it met, Heuer produced another series for Abercrombie & Fitch who before selling clothes sold slightly different items such as hunting rifles, fishing rods, … It was the very first watch to indicate the tides as well as solar and lunar time simultaneously. It was mainly intended for fishermen and hunters who believed in the solunar theory.
