Trilobe invites you to embrace difference and to adopt a new frame of reference. With the Trilobe watch, time starts moving. Three rotating rings rush forward, carrying with them the scales of time: the largest ring for hours, the median one for minutes, the smallest one for seconds. These three eccentric rotating rings turn counterclockwise. Thus, a new classic is born, hands less, but with a sprinkle of magic! Trilobe. Time. Liberated.
Trilobe, a mix of architecture, poetry, and design for a new classic
The position of the rings on the dial was designed to create a subtle and clear harmony, while giving back a place of unique importance to each time component. The Trilobe is an architectural motif that echoes the three pillars of time – Hours, Minutes and Seconds. Timeless and universal, this shape gives its name to the brand, and becomes the new indicator of time. The Sainte-Chappelle rose window was chosen for the skeleton of the seconds’ disc; a mysterious place for Parisians, far from the distracted eyes of passers-by; a so-called “radiant” architecture, allowing the rays of light to enter ; a luminous and subtle invitation into the heart of the movement. Finally, the sobriety of the dial also allows a touch of eccentricity and poetry with a few hidden details and the three non-aligned trilobes.
From a Centric to an X-Centric vision of watchmaking - The X-Centric calibre, automatic movement, and hallmark of the brand
With its eccentric dynamics, innovation, and expertise place themselves at the service of the dial’s poetry. Our innovation compendium translates into the development of our X-Centric calibre, with the task of combining the technical challenge with an ‘‘artistically offbeat’’ approach, while perpetuating Swiss watchmaking excellence. Trilobe plays with contrasts: X-Centric vision of watchmaking on the front side, concentric and symmetrical signature on the reverse side based on a graphic and architectural centered perspective, one of the central pillars of Trilobe. Drawing its inspiration from the architecture’s aesthetic codes, with a contemporary distinction and a refined design, the movement offers a visual contrast through a two-tone plate: a search for brightness on the front side and an invitation into the storm grey depths on the reverse side.
“Impose your luck, embrace your happiness and go toward your risks: by looking at you, they’ll get used to it.” René Char paves the way for hope and boldness. In this spirit, Trilobe created “Les Matinaux” collection. Les Matinaux in rose gold brings together French creativity and Swiss watchmaking excellence with pure refinement. Crafted in 18-carat rose gold, the case with a 40.5mm diameter was specially designed for the X-Centric movement. The subtlety and elegance of Les Matinaux in Sunray Silver rose gold version incarnate a timeless and sophisticated luxury for an offset timepiece.
