Ahhhhh, Ulysse Nardin, in my mind one of the finest watch makers!
I have gone back and forth so many times over the GMT +/_ perpetual LE in platinum that I cannot begin to explain. I almost bought it @ CES in LV this year but swore I wouldn't buy a watch this year so passed despite really good offers from authorized dealers.
Not familiar with the Quadrato, but I do not personally like the Sonata as the chimes are pretty subdued and very quiet. I love the hands of that watch, and it is part of why I so LOVE the GMT+/- LE Perpetual, which uses the same hands only in a perpetual calendar, which is the next complication I want....
To date I have unfortunately passed on the pre-Malte Vacheron Constantin Perpetual (for over 50% off at an authorized dealer!!!!) and the GMT+/-.
I have eight watches to date, so I really don't NEED another, but I likely also don't need all the stereo gear I buy once the dust settles I will start working on the watch thing again.
