Pierre DeRoche has introduced a new watch - the Pierre DeRoche GrandCliff TNT Royal Retro
equipped with the first movement that incorporates six retrograde seconds mechanisms
The remarkable thing about the movement is that all the retrograde hands are driven not by cams but by gears. Moreover, the traditional balance-spring system has been substituted with a strip-spring, so the retrograde hands come back to their initial positions after "they have passed on the baton" to the next hand. This innovative approach gives an advantage of improved design and shock-resistance.
The dial demonstrates a relay team of six retrograde seconds hands. For indicating the sector with the moving hand, the middle of its bridge has a small window
that becomes red. When the hand finishes its 10-second cycle, it "passes on the baton" to the hand in the next sector and returns to its initial position. This way the hands continuously pass on the "baton".
