Interview with Rolf W. Schnyder Part II By Su JiaXian © November 2008 SJX: What do you think of the watch press nowadays? There are so many magazines, on the internet, everywhere. RWS: Far too many. Frankly many of these magazines are just there to make m...

Sonata Rolf

 By: MTF : November 30th, 2008-06:33
Thanks SJX and Rolf for the interview. The Sonata is also special to Rolf because the funky see-through hands were at his suggestion. At the beginning, they seemed a bit freaky but eventually, people got used to the better visibility. I remember the first... 

I always thought the Sonata was an ugly watch

 By: SJX : November 30th, 2008-06:35
and I still do. BUT I think the silicium Sonata in white gold as on Rolf's wrist, looks terrific. For some reason the grey and blue colours work perfectly despite the awful hands (sorry Mr Schnyder). This is the only Sonata I would wear. - SJX

My God! I own both the PC and the Sonata with these Hands! LOLOL

You must trade in for a silicium Sonata and ask Rolf to make a silicium QP

 By: SJX : November 30th, 2008-07:06
The silicium dial looks amazing. I thought it would look tacky and cheap but the colour and reflectiveness of the material look terrific. Don't worry amanico, even though you own two watches with those awful hands, I know you have excellent taste because ... 

Naaah...I keep them! LOL

Hi Melvyn, do you mean this PC?

 By: AV : December 1st, 2008-02:12
Photo a bit dated, but watch is still in my happy hands. Don't you just love those hands, which is why I wanted it so badly. Great interview and wishing much continued success to Rolf and everyone at UN....  

Great read

Very informative interview SJX!

 By: AnthonyTsai : November 30th, 2008-09:42
Thanks very much for this great interview, and it was very interesting to hear Mr Schnyder's stories. What did Rolf mean when he said the dial on his Sonata was made of silicium? Did he mean the entire dial? Or just some of the cut out parts of the dial s...  

Only centre portion is made of silicon

 By: SJX : November 30th, 2008-23:24
It looks slightly brown in the photo due to its high reflectiveness, but in actual fact it is the purplish-blue colour of silicon. - SJX

K thanks for the info [nt]
