Trilobe wins the prize "Petite Aiguille" at the Grand Prix d'Horlogerie in Geneva

“Petite Aiguille” for a watch with no hands

After being nominated for three consecutive years for the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève, our watch “Nuit Fantastique Dune” won on November 10, 2022. The jury rewarded Trilobe’s creative and daring spirit with the “Petite Aiguille” prize for a watch without hands, but with confidence. Offering an intuitive reading of the time, our “Nuit Fantastique” is a proud representative of our House: “Hands less but with a sprinkle of magic”. Classic in its refinement, offbeat and contemporary, with a disruptive and singular reading of the time. This prize is certainly an emblematic stage of maturity for Trilobe.

A look back at our first trilogy

We are proud to receive this award, at the dawn of our 4th year. On December 17, 2018, Gautier Massonneau launched, at the Museum of Arts and Crafts in Paris, the inaugural series “Les Matinaux”, after three years of research & development. By doing so, he turned the traditional world of Swiss watchmaking upside down with eccentrically designed automatic watches.

After Les Matinaux, the Nuit Fantastique and Une Folle Journée complete the French trilogy. With the same technical and aesthetic signature. Between minimalism and eccentric use of hours, minutes and seconds. Morning, Noon and Evenings, these three collections are also completed by a personalized edition, “Secret”, and based on the signature automatic movement, the X-Centric Trilobe calibre.

Une Folle Journée Réconciliation 
Trilobe and the art of Kintsugi

Trilobe is honored to be taking part in the 10th edition of Only Watch, a charity auction created in 2005 in support of Duchenne muscular dystrophy. The auction has already raised nearly 100 million euros for research into muscular dystrophy and neuromuscular and genetic diseases. 2023 marks the Brand’s third participation. For this occasion, Trilobe has chosen to transform its latest creation “Une Folle Journée” into a singular timepiece echoing the philosophy of Only Watch.

13 years after coming across the Japanese art of Kintsugi (金 継 ぎ) while in Tokyo, Gautier Massonneau, Founder and Creative Director of Trilobe, decided to draw from it to create a unique piece, “Réconciliation”. This art consists of repairing broken objects with gold. A profoundly inspiring philosophy: instead of rejecting damaged objects, Kintsugi considers that their scars carry stories that deserve to be valued. The radiance of gold, a noble and precious material, gracefully reconciliates beauty and imperfection, transforming these wounds into a symphony of light.

The story of this piece thus transcends physical mechanics and plunges its readers into the realms of philosophical contemplation. With its exposed fractures, this timepiece bears witness to the passage of time. Like the tribulations of life that shape us, this unique creation pays tribute to the journey it has undertaken – a transformative odyssey where it has been intentionally broken, emerging even more precious and captivating.

The impact marks on the rings and the movement are handmade by a craftsman watchmaker who achieves a hammered effect finish on the bridges, the plate and the symbolic rings. The damaged parts are then gilded by hand with gold leaves. This piece of art thus resonates with Only Watch’s profound philosophy of seeing beauty in all things.

In the field of watchmaking, where precision and perfection reign supreme, the Trilobe “Une Folle Journée” collection stands out for its unique expression of time and embodies a new narrative in the art of watchmaking. At the heart of this collection lies a captivating innovation, that challenges traditional codes. Featuring a 10.2 mm high sapphire dome, the watch shows three rotating rings, representing the hours, minutes and seconds, set in motion by a system of pillars.

A unique piece, the “Réconciliation”, will be sold at the 10th edition of Only Watch, on 5 November 2023, in Geneva.

Trilobe @ Time For Art

Trilobe @ Time For Art

On December 10 and 11, 2022, in New York, took place the first ever auction of watches to benefit contemporary art and its artists. 100% of the proceeds is donated to them, through the Swiss Institute.

This event highlights the close ties between the worlds of art and watchmaking, through the sale of pieces with unique and innovative designs that reveal the singular vision of their creator.

Trilobe for the occasion sold a limited edition at $16, 380 which was estimated at $6,000-12,000.

Nuit Fantastique Désert, a unique piece

Trilobe is supporting the Time For Art auction by redesigning its Nuit Fantastique collection with a «Desert» edition.

“Nuit Fantastique” is a proud representative of the House, of its creativity and audacity: classic in its purity, offbeat and contemporary, with a disruptive and novel reading of the time.

For this edition, the iconic grained dial has been given the color of desert sand, appreciated for its elegance and sophistication. Underlining and sublimating the symbol of infinity through a contrast of colors, the grained dial awakens under the light of polished and satin-finished angles, like grains of sand in a desert lit by a radiant sun.

Designed for a grade 5 titanium case, the Desert Edition of the Nuit Fantastique collection pays tribute to the purity of Trilobe’s design. It embodies with finesse and style a timeless and refined luxury, for an offbeat watch creation.

The complicity between Art and Trilobe 

From its conception, Trilobe has placed art at the heart of its DNA. Like a work of art, Trilobe aspires through its watches to make people feel emotions by telling stories in a new form based on even more innovative techniques.

Trilobe has been inspired by literature, René Char, Stefan Zweig or Beaumarchais, for their works that take an opposite view of the world we live in, in order to propose a new reading of time.

Architecture is also a great source of inspiration for Trilobe and is reflected in its designs. The name of the brand is borrowed from a universal and timeless architectural motif echoing the three pillars of time.

Thus, Trilobe has never ceased to strengthen its affinity with the world of the arts, and in particular with contemporary art. One example is its unique collaboration with Daniel Buren, one of the most recognized French artists on the international scene, for the 2021 edition of the Only Watch charity auction.

Dubai Watch Week 
Trilobe takes part in the Emirati Fair

Trilobe is delighted to have taken part in the 5th edition of Dubai Watch Week, which gathered around 50 watch brands, from 24 to 28 November. The DWW was a great opportunity for the brand to raise its profile internationally among worldwide aficionados and actors of the industry who came to assist to this major event. On this occasion, Trilobe was also able to interact with its peers in a relaxed and open environment.

Founded by Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons in 2015, Dubai Watch Week, which takes place every two years, is the greatest non-commercial event in the watchmaking industry. The aim of the DWW is very clear : “We’re not here to sell, we’re here to educate and to promote watchmaking. Our goal is to create an unparalleled educational, experiential and networking event.” These are the words of Hind and Mohammed Seddiqi during their opening speech on November 24.

Thus, this event is a golden opportunity for the brands to present their novelties, whether they are destined for the local or global market, and to strengthen their image with a diverse audience.

In the purpose of enlightening participants, developing their knowledge and expanding their thinking on the watchmaking topic, the 2021 edition of Dubai Watch Week offered a rich and diverse program including discussion panels, masterclass and workshops.

The hosts of DWW also took the opportunity to pay a tribute to the United Arab Emirates’ 50th anniversary by presenting a special collection with exceptional pieces in limited edition.

High point of the watchmaking industry in 2021, Dubai Watch Week enabled the industry actors to gather altogether and celebrate the watchmaking expertise for a week, a long awaited moment after months of industry paralysis because of the pandemic.

Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève 2021 Preselection

15 September 2021 / Event

Trilobe preselected to the Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève 2021

The academy of the 21st Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix (GPHG) has given its verdict and Trilobe is very pleased to announce its preselection in the “Petite Aiguille”* category, for the third consecutive year.

“Petite Aiguille”* for a watch without hands, a happy coincidence or a bold move from the jury? This wink results undoubtedly from the magic of a watch liberating time, thus surprising us at first glance through an assumed step aside.

This year, the new Nuit Fantastique (Fantastic night) collection is the one that caught the attention of the GPHG Academy.The design of this creation plays on perceptions. The elegant black grained dial is a real technical challenge. It is made up of four parts, three of which are in permanent rotation : the ring for hours; the minutes wheel that appears within an aperture; the seconds wheel alternating between a centre in clous de Paris and an azured ring. The intertwining of the minutes and seconds gives a glimpse of the infinite and time that goes on endlessly, within a satin-finished and polished in-dial bezel.

Designed and developed in the singular spirit of the brand, the Nuit Fantastique watch is equipped with the X-Centric calibre, Trilobe’s signature automatic movement with micro-rotor. With a thickness of 5.78mm this movement combines finesse and performance.
