Why We Love It: An instant classic from Ulysse Nardin, this stylish Sonata features an 18k rose gold case on a brown alligator strap. The timepiece’s complications span two time zones, date indicator, gong-and-hammer based alarm and sweep seconds. There is the main time in the center, second time zone (in 24-hour format) over 6 o’clock, alarm time at 1 o’clock, and countdown timer (until the alarm goes off) at 11 o’clock. And, like the sonata it was named after, the alarm has a melodic “sonata” chiming sound. The dual time zone function of this watch can rapidly be adjusted forward or backward one hour at a time by simply pressing the +HR or -HR buttons. This way when you arrive in a city with a different time zone, you can rapidly adjust the dual time on the watch without resetting the hands and without interrupting the main time.
