Heuer Mareographe – Very Rare

Excellent condition HeuerMareographetide indication chronograph watch. It is a very rare watch and there are very few examples of the HeuerMareographe. Most of these models were manufactured by Heuer and marketed by Abercrombie & Fitch as the Seafarer or by Orvis as the Solunagraph. Heuer introduced the line of tide indicationchronographs in the early 1950's. These chronographs included a unique indication that had not been included in chronographs produced by other manufacturers and rarely sued since which is the tide indication. The dial on the left, at the 9 position shows when high and low tides will occur. Specifically, the cross in the centre of this dial indicates the times for high and low tides, with the disc turning to match the moon's orbit. Accordingly, the points of the cross are not 12 hours apart, but are actually 12 hours and 25 minutes apart, to correspond to the cycle between high and low tides. The pusher on the left is used to set the disc for the correct high tide / low tide times in a particular location, and the disc then rotates to remain accurate.Most of these tide indication chronographs produced by Heuer were sold under the Abercrombie & Fitch Seafarer name; however, Heuer also sold these watches under the HeuerMareographe name. The movement is a Swiss made hand winding Valjoux 72, one of the most highly regarded of hand winding movements used in a broad range of watches from the Omega Seamaster to the Rolex Daytona. The crowns and pushers are all original, and the winding crown is signed Heuer. Comes on new replacement blue leather strap to match the dial markings. Width is 36 mm excluding crown and 42 mm including crown, Lug to lug is 45 mm, Thickness is 13 mm.
