    That’s my uncle Pete during WWII. He flew Dauntless dive bombers and that particular picture was taken just before he left for a raid on Rabaul.

    Later he flew helicopters in Korea.

    In another thread I mentioned he bought a Rolex and gave it to my grandfather as a gift. The watch I subsequently ruined when I had it redialed. Same guy.

    Pete was a really neat guy and I even though he’s been gone a long time I keep this picture of him in my office to remind me, not just of him, but what sacrifices life requires sometimes.

    Here’s the only other wartime picture I have of him. I need to get this one framed.

    This is really quite interesting. I’m especially interested by the line:

    These Abercrombie & Fitch watches are probably the rarest of all the cushion oysters, in all my life I have only ever seen one; it was signed "Abercrombie and Fitch (Seafarer) on the dial and the case and movement were signed Oyster Watch Company.

    Now of all the people I’ve spoken with, nobody seems to know of an earlier watch called an Abercrombie and Fitch Seafarer than mine (which is approx. 1938/39).

    7007290E-983D-4649-97D9-4D170B973A9A.jpeg

    But the trademark information states that even though “Seafarer” was filed in 1949, it was actually in use from March 1930 so that predates mine.

    I need to try and find information on this Oyster Watch Company Seafarer. Do you know the guy who posted the original thread on sgrolexclub ?

    Have you ever heard of this @georgetownhoya ?

    I guess I should move this away from the WRUW thread so maybe PM if you know something more.

    Two days in a row with the 16710 BLRO, and no Speedmaster. That's gotta be a record for me!
