The Freak and the Sonata don't have any competitors. They are both unique. And both so Ulysse Nardin. The Sonata is more " friendly " than the Freak with its 24 hours alarm sounding like a minute repeater, its GMT you can set forward and backward and the ... 

Good explaination

Both are extraordinary watches, better said peaces of art. Me personally would hang more to the Sonata, but the Freak have something i very like. Let’s say, both are great possessions.

Thanks, Weems.

I never thought that the Freak was a daily wear watch. Remember that...

I said Freak X, which IMO is not really a Freak.

The Sonata and Freak X about the same?

Yes I meant in SS. (nt)

Sonata all the way for me.

Why? It is one of the most iconic UN pieces.

Probably a new thread, but...

Go ahead here.

What do you think?

It is difficult. While the...

OOF, tough call. For me... Freak.
