Edition Trilobe x Dubai Watch Club

18 November 2022 / Collaboration

Trilobe for the Dubai Watch Club 

Through the mashrabiya screen, he observes the beauty of the landscape.
Under the light of a setting sun, the sand of the desert takes a copper color.
He dreams of a flourishing oasis where several shades of green intertwine.
A rare and cherished color in the region.

Exclusively for the Dubai Watch Club enthusiasts, Trilobe faced the challenge to rethink its iconic «Nuit Fantastique» collection. A brand new design, the result of a meeting between two men sharing a common passion for watchmaking, Nawaf Al Abdooli and Gautier Massonneau.

Nuit Fantastique is a classic: its design overturns the status quo, inviting you to open up to the world and its new perspectives. Trilobe transports you: inspired by oriental architecture, the watch is dressed up with a guilloche dials adorned with mashrabiya motif. Its hue is reminiscent of the national flag of the Emirates or the Arab League one. The numerals, written in literary Arabic, tell the story of time by gently scattering on the dial. A mesmerizing ensemble, which perfectly represents the image of the Dubai Watch Club.

An harmonious and singular design based on Trilobe’s foundations. Still equipped with the X-Centric calibre, the signature movement of the brand, Trilobe engraved the Dubai Watch Club’s symbol on the micro rotor. 

The elegant guilloche dial defies symmetrical shapes and is made up of four parts, three of which are in permanent rotation. Raw and uncluttered, this unstructured dial opens three distinct windows: The larger ring for hours, the minute wheel that appears within an aperture, and the seconds wheel that alternates between a “Clous de Paris” center and an azured ring. The intertwining of the minutes and seconds gives a glimpse of the infinite and the time that goes on endlessly, within a satin-finished and polished in-dial bezel.

Collaboration Trilobe x Fabrice Ausset, à l'occasion du salon Watches & Wonders 2022

Collaboration with Fabrice Ausset

May 16, 2022 / Collaboration 

Trilobe x Fabrice Ausset
Carré des horlogers - W&W 2022

For its first physical participation in Watches and Wonders, Trilobe joined the architect-designer Fabrice Ausset to enhance its space. In the Carré des Horlogers, Trilobe had the honour of revealing its collections while seating comfortably on the Rocks on the Moon, in a stand designed by Procept, event designer and producer.

The collaboration of Fabrice Ausset – creator of Rocks on the Moon – with the Fine watchmaking brand Trilobe appeared as an obvious choice. Trilobe wished to assert its innovative vision of time: a time for oneself, a time we offer ourselves, a reconnection bubble, which allows contemplation. A time that frees itself from the surrounding immediacy, and suggests to anyone who will listen that life is also around us and, more importantly in front of us.

This is the philosophy behind Fabrice Ausset’s rocks. In a landscape that lends itself to contemplation and height, these extracts of nature are volumes encouraging discussion and exchange, evolving constructions with a random fate that one can modulate at will. They offer a soft shape to the body which takes hold of them, curls up in them, finds its position.

It is also the idea of «rethinking» that unites the two craftsmen, by choosing to challenge some previously untouchable absolutes. For more than 7 centuries, we have been reading the time in the same way, and everything suggests that we have been sitting on a chair since the Egyptian era… Why not offer something else? A watch without hands? A more instinctive way of sitting?

This is the heart of the Trilobe x Fabrice Ausset collaboration: to break what has been earned. To the question «how do we sit in 2022?» Fabrice Ausset has chosen to answer with anachrony. An almost archaic return to our roots: the body finds a spontaneous, authentic, almost naïve position on these rocks. It thus contemplates the time offered to it on a Trilobe watch, which has only one message: to free this time. A meaningful collaboration that will make many people meditate: on age-old rocks, reading an innovative time, and combining opposing temporalities. An oxymoron if ever there was one!


Horloge La Réciproque, fruit d'une collaboration entre Trilobe et l'Artiste Daniel Buren

La Réciproque Clock

15 september 2021 / Collaboration

"La Réciproque" Clock
Trilobe by Daniel Buren

For Only Watch 2021 edition, Trilobe and Daniel Buren have decided to offer a unique creation, based on a singular and meaningful collaboration.

It is from a desire for reciprocity that the Trilobe by Daniel Buren project was born: to combine a young watchmaking House with one of the most recognised Artist on the international scene. Around a scarlet beating heart, imagine a duality between the technicality of the watchmaker and the unique proposal of the Artist in an immediate dialogue with the “X-Centricity” of Trilobe. Daniel Buren and Trilobe have fun with their encounter: opposing forms and colours, disturbing the view, questioning the mind. Art and watchmaking oppose and meet each other, in reciprocal forces.

La réciproque 

Forms, colours and meanings find their reciprocal,
Hours, minutes and seconds dance around each other,
Black and White marry to the beating of a red heart,
Verticality is amused by circularity,
The frantic race of the “X-Centric” rings overlaps the verticality of the 8.7cm wide strips,
Colours leave and find each other again,
Shapes finally align themselves twice a day only,
At the time when it all began, the time of the first meeting of Daniel Buren & Trilobe, at 02:13pm.

The D-Centric Calibre

Designed as the scarlet beating heart of the work, this mechanical calibre is unlike any other. It combines the architectural codes dear to Trilobe with the artistic vision of the Sculptor Daniel Buren. A real technical challenge, it took several months of development to create this unique calibre, designed in France and entirely handmade by Swiss watchmakers in the canton of Vaud, Switzerland. inspired by Trilobe’s signature X-Centric Calibre, each part has been recalibrated to the scale of this unique clock, to allow the display of the hours, the minutes and the seconds by rotating rings and fixed indicators. In the purest horological tradition, the clock is equipped with a constant-force escapement, while the barrel has been doubled to provide an eight-day power reserve. It features the excellent finishes of traditional watchmaking, with hand-polishing, bevelled bridges, as well as sunburst barrels and a sandblasted plate.

Daniel Buren 

Considered one of the most recognised French Artist on the international scene, Daniel Buren has had nearly 3,000 exhibitions around the world. including Monumenta at the Grand Palais (2012), the Observatory of Light at the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris (2016), “Les Deux Plateaux” in the Cour d’Honneur of the Palais Royal, the Venice Biennale on more than 10 occasions with the Golden Lion in 1986 or the Guggenheim Museum in New York in 2005, without forgetting the memorable exhibition using all the available spaces, on the rooftops, in the basement, in the caterpillar, on the balconies, at the Pompidou Centre in 2002. In 2007, Daniel Buren was awarded the Praemium Imperiale of Japan for his work, the highest honour in the field of the visual arts.

Trilobe at – Only Watch 2019

02 July 2019 / Event

Trilobe « Les Matinaux » x Only Watch

“You only fight well for causes you yourself have shaped, with which you identify and burn” René Char

 

Trilobe is very proud to support the Only Watch Charity Auction. This auction, that will be held on the 9th of November 2019 in Geneva, is the premier international watchmaking charity event. Since 2005, the Monegasque Association has already raised more than 40 million Swiss Francs in funds. These funds proceeds to finance research in the field of  Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a degenerative neuromuscular disease that affects more than 3500 young people around the world.

 

Trilobe’s unique piece “Les Matinaux” – Only Watch 2019 – is a tribute to all communities fighting strongly and audaciously for effective research and patient’s treatments in the future.
This unique piece in bronze compresses life challenges into prose from René Char engraved at the back of the watch.
René Char is a poet who fearlessly shouted out “Impose your luck, embrace your happiness and go toward your risks: by looking at you, they’ll get used to it”. He paved the way for hope, courage, human warmth and wisdom. With the courtesy of Madame Char and Gallimard Publishing House, the back of the watch has been exclusively engraved with his quote along with the poet’s original signature.
