"Les Matinaux" Collection Trilobe unveils its first collection

Spirit of the collection : Take a step aside 

Because you recognize a beautiful day from the morning, and, above all, a tribute to René Char’s poetry collection: a book that takes an opposite view of the world we live in. A poetry that combines refinement and simplicity. An invitation to be bold and to take the time. “Impose your luck, embrace your happiness and go towards your risks: by looking at you, they’ll get used to it.” René Char paves the way for hope and boldness. It is in this spirit that Trilobe was created.

Les Matinaux is available in Silver, Grey, Blue, Carmine, Green and ‘‘Secret’’. With its sober and elegant titanium case and resistant sapphire crystal, this creation reveals a new vision of time.

Fusion of poetry, architecture and design

The Trilobe
An ornamental pattern made of several circular arcs that echoes the three pillars of time – Hours, Minutes and Seconds. Timeless and universal, this architectural figure gives its name to the brand, and becomes the new indicator of time.

The Sainte-Chapelle rose window 
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. No other building had been so bright before its construction. A luminous and subtle invitation into the heart of the movement.

Three eccentric and rotating rings turning counterclockwise: an opposite stance from traditional watchmaking. Look closely… Many other details are hidden on the watch: The traditional fish traded for a duck as symbol for the water-resistance of our watches ; Three non-aligned trilobes, that will intrigue many. A touch of poetry and eccentricity on your wrist!

X-Centric vision of watchmaking

In keeping with the unique spirit of the brand, the watches from Les Matinaux Collection are equipped, since 2020, with the X-Centric calibre, a signature automatic movement developed exclusively for Trilobe. Mirror of the brand identity, this calibre enhances architectural geometry: a contemporary distinction with a refined design. Its harmony brings refinement and modernity to the collection. Integrated into the X-Centric calibre, the micro-rotor combines finesse and technical performance.
