Watchmakers use retrograde displays in many ways, including the day, date, month, minutes, seconds, or power reserve. The retrograde hand will move in an arc, and once it reaches the end, it snaps back to 0. For example, retrograde minutes begin at 0 and snap back when it reaches a new hour at 60. On the other hand, a retrograde power-reserve indicator will start at the highest number when the watch is fully wound and move down to 0 as the power reserve dwindles, then jump back to full when the watch is wound. Retrograde dials are frequently paired with jumping-hour watches. Since jumping-hour watches don’t have an hour hand, having this unique dial display makes the absence of an hour hand less noticeable. Read on to discover the best luxury retrograde watches.
