Not too many people really understand what goes in to the making of a retrograde timepiece. Challenging to build, these watches feature at least one hand that shows some indication of time or date on an arc. The hand travels from beginning to end and then flies back to its original position to begin the timing feat again. Aesthetic and alluring to look at, it is a difficult feat to accomplish. Now, thanks to www.AWJOnlineTV.com, the mission of the retrograde hand is explored and described in all its glory in this video. Thanks, too, to Jean-Marc Wiederrecht.
