Trilobe for the Dubai Watch Club 

Through the mashrabiya screen, he observes the beauty of the landscape.
Under the light of a setting sun, the sand of the desert takes a copper color.
He dreams of a flourishing oasis where several shades of green intertwine.
A rare and cherished color in the region.

Exclusively for the Dubai Watch Club enthusiasts, Trilobe faced the challenge to rethink its iconic «Nuit Fantastique» collection. A brand new design, the result of a meeting between two men sharing a common passion for watchmaking, Nawaf Al Abdooli and Gautier Massonneau.

Nuit Fantastique is a classic: its design overturns the status quo, inviting you to open up to the world and its new perspectives. Trilobe transports you: inspired by oriental architecture, the watch is dressed up with a guilloche dials adorned with mashrabiya motif. Its hue is reminiscent of the national flag of the Emirates or the Arab League one. The numerals, written in literary Arabic, tell the story of time by gently scattering on the dial. A mesmerizing ensemble, which perfectly represents the image of the Dubai Watch Club.

An harmonious and singular design based on Trilobe’s foundations. Still equipped with the X-Centric calibre, the signature movement of the brand, Trilobe engraved the Dubai Watch Club’s symbol on the micro rotor. 

The elegant guilloche dial defies symmetrical shapes and is made up of four parts, three of which are in permanent rotation. Raw and uncluttered, this unstructured dial opens three distinct windows: The larger ring for hours, the minute wheel that appears within an aperture, and the seconds wheel that alternates between a “Clous de Paris” center and an azured ring. The intertwining of the minutes and seconds gives a glimpse of the infinite and the time that goes on endlessly, within a satin-finished and polished in-dial bezel.
