If time is a memory that is reflected in my mind, it will inevitably fade away. We always hope that there is a back button to go back to the past and make it beautiful again-like the confession that has been sore at the graduation ceremony of a certain summer in the past; Ling Yun and Youzi who have gone out for the first time; even those Passengers and partings who waved goodbye but never returned. If there is such a method in the world, even if we can’t change anything, we are still willing to try and own it—as if we are obsessed with the flyback pointer on the watch. Even if the time is zero, we can’t return to the original point, but you still enjoy it.
The characteristic of flyback is that the pointer can return to the original position when the pointer reaches the end of the scale. Generally, the hands move in a circular motion, and just return to the original position after one rotation, so the end point is always the starting point of the next round. The function of the flyback pointer is different. When the indication scale is full, the pointer will instantly return to the starting point of the scale and repeat the new process. An old gentleman once fiddled with the watch in his hand and said to me: ‘I have countless watches, no matter whether they are limited in complexity or rare antique watches, the price is more than this number of times, but I like this one the most.’ The FM, which combines only 30 seconds of dual chasing, tourbillon and other complex functions, was handed to me, and continued to mark: ‘Because flyback is the most’ super complicated ‘in my eyes, this is not just its function , It is more metaphoric to the feeling it brings me. ‘As he said, many watch lovers are also fascinated by the flyback function on the watch, although it can not be zeroed with the return of the pointer, making the time passed. Come again, but the metaphorical meaning behind this feature is enough to remind us of the true meaning of time. Every time you return to zero, you can imagine that you are coming from the future and you have a ‘moonlight box’ on your wrist. What reason do you not cherish it and enjoy it?

Flyback and retrograde look similar in function, but the internal mechanical structure and working principle are completely different. The difference is that the retrograde pointer is arc-shaped, and the retrograde return is completed automatically; the flyback chronograph pointer is round and round, and its return to zero requires manual button operation. Left and right directions are done.
When flying in the sky, all routes are automatically calculated based on a predetermined heading and time. Before the flyback function was invented, two different buttons had to be pressed three times to pause, reset or restart the chronograph hands. For fighter pilots, this operation is both time consuming and overly complicated. The creative watchmaker has developed the flyback function. Just press the same button to pause, reset and restart the chronograph. The pilot can recalculate the course at any time.
