Trilobe for Grail Watch 

“Imagine the three primary time-telling disks first brought to life in Les Matinaux now powered by an alien force field, so that they levitate off the dial and are retained only by the canopy of domed sapphire crystal.” Wei Koh

An exclusive partnership 

Introducing Une Folle Soirée, our limited edition in collaboration with Grail Watch. This piece combines the artistic expressiveness of Trilobe with the luminous signature of Wei Koh, founder of Revolution, Grail Watch and The Rake. The 25 numbered pieces of this edition were sold out within minutes, following its launch on the Grail Watch platform on Monday, November 19th. [DISCOVER]

A luminous signature

“My first impression when setting eyes on Une Folle Journée was of three UFOs in a coordinated flight pattern landing on the surface of a planet. And I knew immediately that I would love to see this featuring a maximum light show when the watch was in an ambient or dark setting.” Wei Koh

The edition Une Folle Soirée is thus characterized by its luminous signature, which distinguishes it from our collection “Une Folle Journée” (A Crazy Day). The numerals, the indicator and the edges of the bridges and plates are covered with a luminescent coating.

“Step into darkness and the watch simply ignites on your wrist, giving another dimension to the thrilling artistic expressiveness of Trilobe.” Wei Koh

Like a flying saucer

The three rings of the hours, minutes and seconds are tiered and fly at a 10.2mm height, a true watchmaking prowess. Projected in space and balanced by 9 pillars, Trilobe’s rings are each the result of a complex assembly.

They fly in the air carrying with them the scales of time: the largest ring for hours, the median one for minutes, the smallest one for seconds.

The open dial enables to savour the watchmaking craftsmanship of a Swiss Made calibre, without losing sight of the rotating rings’ singularity.

Wei Koh 

Considered one of the greatest watch influencers of this century. It all began in 2005, when Wei Koh launched the watch magazine Revolution, which is now published in 17 countries and has become one of the most influential paper magazines in the world. In early 2022, he unveiled his new project around watchmaking, Grail Watch, through which he partners with independent watch brands to offer exclusive limited edition pieces to his community.  Our piece Une Folle Soirée, launched in December 2022, is the third chapter of Grail Watch, and follows a collaboration with Ressence and Franck Muller.
