    The redesigned Ulysse Nardin Sonata Streamline travel watch (www.ulysse-nardin.ch) does more than just tell the times of day in your destination and in the location from which you departed. In addition to a dual time display, the $39,000 timepiece provides a gentle reminder that it is time to get up from a nap or get ready for a meeting. While most wristwatch alarm functions employ a relatively simple buzzer system, Sonata’s alarm sounds like a cathedral gong. The acoustic system is similar to those found in much more expensive minute repeaters.
