Trilobe unveils Nuit FantastiqueGuilloche Edition

This timepiece, a fine line between rupture and continuity, combines a contemporary design with traditional watchmaking know-how.

At the heart of this new creation, and for the first time on a Maison Trilobe model, is a guilloché technique known as “Barley Grain“, which is the aesthetic focus of the piece.

The design of this ancient motif has been reworked exclusively for this new edition, in alignement with Maison Trilobe eccentric displays.

When opposites meet : a creation marked by duality

The ambivalence of this piece is conveyed through the relief of the dial, which unites two traditional decorative watchmaking techniques. The Clous de Paris guilloche, with its incisive rectilinear pattern, contrasts with the spheres of the Grain d’Orge guilloche, formed by interlaced curves. The Grain d’Orge guilloche takes as its starting point the center of the minute window and highlights the Trilobe time display. Trilobe called on a guilloche craftsman to shape the intricate Grain d’Orge pattern on the fixed part of the dial.

A veil between light and dark

“On Nuit Fantastique Brume”, the fixed part of the dial and the hour ring feature an ambiguous shade between gray and brown that oscillates with light. Just like ”mist”, the English translation of the name of this model, the classic hue evokes infinite timelessness. Subtlety shines through the pigment, adding to the refinement of our Maison’s latest creation.

A new interpretation of time signed by Trilobe

Drawing inspiration from the minimalist design of the Nuit Fantastique collection, the elegant guilloche and grained dial is a major technical achievement that emphasizes the watch’s elegance. It defies the laws of symmetry; made up of four parts, three of them permanently rotate: the largest wheel for the hours; the minutes wheel that appears within an aperture and the seconds wheel, which alternates between a “Clous de Paris” centre and an azured ring.

A piece signed “Paris-France”

Nuit Fantastique Brume is equipped with the X-Centric calibre, an automatic movement designed and developed exclusively by Trilobe. For the first time, it bears the words “Paris – France“, a symbol of the development of our Maison, which recently inaugurated its own watchmaking workshop in Paris. In this workshop, our expert watchmakers carry out the final stages of manufacturing Trilobe timepieces. Each piece is entirely assembled and cased-up by a watchmaker, who works with rigor and precision to guarantee an impeccable finish, in line with the Maison’s high standards.
