Armed with easy to use and functional complications, the Classic Sonata, introduced at Baselworld 2016, makes its entrance. Pared down to its most essential form, the new piece is in titanium and steel. The alarm function and the Dual Time system with instant time zone adjustor, are both exclusive to Ulysse Nardin. It’s a boutique edition that has been limited to 99 pieces.
The Classic Sonata is powered by the caliber UN-67 – a patented self-winding manufacture caliber, with its silicium hairspring and patented inertial oscillator.
The movement features an exclusive alarm setting which wakes the user with a melodic cathedral gong. Positioned between 12 and 2 o’clock, it boasts a12h or 24h alarm setting, which means the alarm can be set for am or pm.
The hand at 10 o’clock denotes whether or not the alarm is activated, while the alarm is synchronized with the Dual Time system when traveling.
Ulysse Nardin’s Dual Time with instant time zone adjustor is featured on the Blued dial, at 6 o’clock. The Dual Time function simplifies time zone adjustments, which can be achieved both forwards and backwards just by using the pushers to change the position of the hour hand.
The date is featured in a double window at 4 o’clock. The Classic collection DNA is apparent in the design with the dial, lugs, pushers and steel mid-case in perfect harmony, as are the “Glaive” hands.
The 44mm Classic Sonata combines has a mid-case with a titanium bezel and sapphire crystal case back. Water resistant to 30 meters, the watch comes on a leather strap with folding buckle clasp.
