Abercrombie & Fitch Bead Beach Necklace

Looks like spools and then beads of copper but could just be an antiqued gold look, I really am not sure on this. I think this to be a mans necklace. Beach surfers wear a lot of these kinds of necklaces. Measures about 17 inches in length and about 4 mm in width. This is strung on a metal string and has a split ring as a connector to a lobster claw clasp. Each of the elongated beads at the connector say Abercrombie  on one side and the other side says Est. 1892. I think this to be an older piece of jewelry, not really sure of the age, but, I know the style is a good one for a man.
