Abercrombie & Fitch Alarm

Why We Love It 

Vintage timepieces signed by Abercrombie & Fitch aren't all that unusual and can, at times, command a fair premium over unsigned versions (think Heuer Carrera & Seafarer models). But fortunately for the watch collector on a budget, there beautiful, technically fascinating pieces which can still be had for a song!

This incredible little Alarm from the 1960s looks and sounds like it was just picked up from the jewelry store yesterday.  With crisp printing, creamy luminous indices, and a sharp case, this piece is the answer to anyone who thinks that great vintage watches aren't affordable.

The Story

For those of you who have been around awhile (or are at least well educated on all things old-school), you know that Abercrombie & Fitch wasn't always the trendy, bare-chested, short-shorts hocking, teeny-bopper fashion brand that they were for the past 25 years. 

Once upon a time the brand was a true outfitter for the serious outdoorsmen, offering everything from mosquito netting to elephant guns in their stores - serious provisions for your safari into the dark heart of Africa. 

We remember hearing stories of our grandfathers' visits to their flagship store on Fifth Avenue, being greeted by giant taxidermied elephants at the entrance, instead of a mouthful of over-bearing perfume and a crowd of tourists excited to buy this season's disposable fashion trend at exorbitant prices. 

While many modern brands have gone to great lengths to honor their history and heritage, Abercrombie gave theirs the finger and ran away in the opposite direction, and only recently has turned the corner and are re-embracing their storied past.

We're hopeful for their future once again, and adds to our renewed excitement when we find quality vintage A&F timepieces such as this beauty!
