The sturdy and streamlined 44 mm case is rendered in titanium in combination with 18K rose gold elements. The brand has created one more version with the bezel sculptured from ceramic appreciated for its durability.
The case is 50-meter water-resistant. An anti-reflective sapphire crystal shields the dial. The case-back is also protected by an anti-reflective sapphire crystal fixed with screws.
The dial is also available in two versions. It catches the glance by its strong geometrical detailing.
The movement is built with a 22K-gold rotor and a silicium anchor escapement. The precision of the mechanism is the silicium hairspring 1.1.1. and the brand’s acclaimed inertial balance wheel.
The movement provides the “chime” alarm function presented via a sub-dial at 2 o’clock that indicates the hour and minute alarm setting. The countdown indicator is found above 10 o’clock. It is based on a 24-hours mechanism, so the alarm function can be set 24 hours ahead. It is used for calculating the time left on a 24-hour scale until the watch’s alarm chimes. This way it is easy to denote whether the alarm is set for a.m. or p.m. The 9 o’clock hand shows whether or not the alarm is activated.
The mechanism also provides the dual time system with the instant time zone adjustor. The 6 o’clock sub-dial displays the 24-hour dual time functions. To change the position of the hour hand, it is necessary to press the pushers – plus (+) or minus (-) adjusting the time zone forward and backward. The original home time, or reference time, remains displayed, with the date, alarm and countdown adjusted automatically when you adjust the time zone. The second time zone is synchronized with the big date in a double window and the countdown function.
The new Ulysse Nardin Sonata Streamline watch is secured to the wrist on a black leather or black rubber strap fited with a folding buckle.
