Recently got my Pontos Small Seconds serviced and polished and I been on an ML kick lately. Then I borrowed this ML Retrograde off my buddy a while back and he asked if I was interested in keeping it. We came to a price and now its a new member in my watch box along side my Pontos Small Seconds. The retrograde is a great piece I will most likely wear for the more formal events and I think its going to make a great suite and tie watch. Simply a joy to watch the movement and power reserve move along when winding. Really wanted to have a power reserve and retrograde complication in the collection and with one piece I got both. Quite happy to have this one added at a great previously loved price. Ok, enough talk. Here's some eye candy.

Both truly stunning, thanks for posting! I have found myself being more and more impressed with ML recently, and watches like these are the reason why!

I'm surprised the movements look so similar, given the retrograde calendar and power reserve on the one. I guess it's the same base, with the complications added?

I believe so. The Retrograde is actually slightly more nicely finished with blue screws and a little more detail in the finishing.

Love the Retrograde! I, too, much prefer it over the new version. I wouldn't be a WIS if I didn't have a nit-pick with the gold bezel, however. :-d

The Retrograde is a great watch, especially when it's a hand-wind |>
