Ulysse Nardin’s Classic Sonata combines beauty with user friendly functionality. With the Classic Sonata, mechanical complications are always designed with the wearer in mind, the goal being a perfect fusion of form and function. With its streamlined design this timepiece is also incredibly functional.
Mechanical complications pared down to their most essential form make this timepiece an ideal travel companion. An alarm function wakes the user with a cathedral chime positioned between 12 o’clock and 2 o’clock. In the center of the counter, the ‘countdown’ display of the last 12 hours, allows the user to select a wake-up in the morning or in the afternoon.
Another exclusive Ulysse Nardin innovation, the Dual Time function, means both home time and current time can be viewed simultaneously. Driven by the UN-67 manufacture movement, it has been re-designed for even better ease of use. As always, time zone adjustment can be made both forwards and backwards, just by using the pushers to change the position of the hour hand.
The Classic Sonata is elegant, and comes in two editions that highlight the essential beauty of the functions: black and rose gold, or stainless steel with blue markers, each on a black alligator strap. Both models have a 44-mm diameter case, water resistant to 30 meters, with a sapphire crystal case back. Price TBC.
