* denotes required field
hands for hours and minutues. As each hand gets to bottom of time-arc,
the hand jumps back to the top. The hands do not rotate like a standard
Automatic winding Swiss mechanical movement.
There were very few double-retrograde watches made in the early
seventies but here are two of the very best. The vintage automatic
winding "Futurama 1000" by Wittnauer featured only two styles, silver
dial and black dial with hours and minutes displayed in an arc (hours
on left, minutes on right). As each hand travels to the bottom, they
fly-back to the top rather than circularly rotate. Deep-set magnified
portholes for date display.
