A look back over our launch year

3 January 2020 / Corporate

Trilobe has 1 year already!

On December 17 2018, Gautier Massonneau launched the inaugural series « Les Matinaux »,  after 3 years of Research and Development, thus disrupting the traditional Swiss watchmaking with automatic watches of eccentric design.
The founding year 2019 was very rich both for the development of the new collection and Trilobe’s awareness on the luxury watch market.

Trilobe official launch

17 December 2018 / Event

Official launch party
of the brand Trilobe

Paris, December 17, 2018

We were officially launched on December 17, 2018 at the Musée des Arts et Métiers in Paris. The strategic choice of a perfect and obvious setting, in the heart of this ancient church which traces the history of technology and honours great inventors.

A journey of experiences, reflecting the spirit of Trilobe, was proposed to our guests: an invitation to the “digital detox”, an enchanted “reveal” around Foucault’s pendulum, a cocktail to let go, a mentalist who shakes up biases, a whisperer of René Char’s poems, and a discovery of the watch, from its 246 pieces, decomposed and reassembled live…

So many invitations to restore the value of time for our 350 guests, celebrities, journalists and especially our first buyers…! Want to join our Circle?
