Ulysse Nardin Silicium Sonata Video  1 Comments


Ulysee Nardin Silicium Sonata from Harry Tan on Vimeo.

Here is a video of a selection of my images of the the Limited Edition UN Silicium Sonata photographed at the local authorised dealer. For collectors of avante garde forms - UN has been at the forefront of both design and materials for watches. The Sonata is quite an imposing timepiece with an automatic UN caliber 67 that features a power reserve of 42 hours. The functions include hours, minutes, seconds, large date, dual time system with instant time zone adjuster, countdown, cathedral gong alarm. The key design change from the standard Sonata is the anchor and escapement wheel which are made of silicium - an a plate of grey silicium on the dial that provides the mirror effect.

The dual time function permits time zone adjustments forward and backward by simply pressing the pushers plus (+) or minus (-) to change the position of the hour hand. The original home time (reference time) stays displayed while the date, the alarm and countdown adjust automatically when a time zone adjustment is made.
