Re: seafarer, solunagraph, mareograph, etc.

: thanks for the question.

: click the following for a quick introduction
: to the Abercrombie & Fitch Seafarer .
: after you look at the history of the
: seafarers, click the following to see some
: photos of the Heuer Mareographe and Orvis
: Solunagraph

: these chronographs were produced continuously,
: from the introduction in the early 1950's
: into the 1970's. the dials, cases, hands,
: brand names and model names changed
: considerably over the years. the movements
: changed slightly (for example, from base
: valjoux 71 in the early ones to base valjoux
: 72 in the middle and later ones), but the
: basic functions remained the same over the
: years.

: In terms of scarcity, the answer would be
: "yes, they are scarce." There were
: at least a dozen major variations over the
: years. Though the orvis soulnagraphs were
: the last models to be produced (along with
: the heuer mareographs), they are certainly
: rare compared with just about any version of
: the "common" models -- Carrera,
: Camaro, Autavia, Monaco, etc.

: Welcome to the Discussion Forum and please keep
: us informed as to any chronograph or
: interesting information that you might
: acquire.

: Thanks again for the message.

: Thank you Jeff:

I found your information helpful and interesting.
I was told the watch was valued at $1200.
I would appreciate your opinion on this.
The watch was worn for less than a month and has the original leather band and box from Orvis.

Do appreciate your help.
