Trilobe unveils the edition Les MatinauxL'Heure Exquise

Trilobe is renewing itself by exploring for the first time the world of lyrical horological complications, with a timepiece adorned with a moon phase.

With this new edition, belonging to its first collection, “Les Matinaux”, Trilobe wants to push poetry to a higher level, by linking time with its most ancient element: the sky.

Encased in grade 5 titanium or 18k rose gold, this model comes in several variations with sand-blasted dials: Dune, Blue and Secret.

Limited series of 100 pieces

A waltz of celestial wonders, lyrical and enchanting 

In this new temporal setting, an enchanting celestial door opens at the heart of the dial, within a polished and satin-finished flange. It reveals a ballet of stars dancing on a sapphire crystal to the rhythm of the seconds. Beneath this celestial waltz, two moons intertwine in a rhythmic you-and-me. They face each other in the night sky of the sunray disc, metamorphosing to the rhythm of this new X-Centric calibre.

The first complication of the Maison

A gear wheel with 59 cogs evokes the orbit of the Moon around the Earth, completing a full cycle of 29.5 days. Through this mechanism, the moons quietly reveal their age. For the first time, the moon phase is co-axially linked to the seconds wheel, under a dynamic and mesmerizing starry sky.

A tribute to our inaugural series 

Trilobe draws from the classic aesthetic of its first collection, “Les Matinaux”, and replicates the dial structure identically in the edition “l’Heure Exquise”, featuring five elements, each with notable variations.

The hour and minute rings continue to run smoothly across the dial, but a slight tilt of the numerals accentuates the movement of the discs, highlighting the
passage of time. A single trilobe now serves as the indicator for the hours and minutes, while the seconds flow freely across the dial through a starry sapphire glass.

The reading of time

It is 9 hours and 55 minutes

The trilobe, a universal and timeless architectural motif, echoes the three pillars of time – Hours, Minutes and Seconds – and becomes the new indicator of time.

The elegant dial with its matt, sand-blasted finish is a real technical challenge. It defies symmetrical shapes, and is made up of five parts, three of which are in permanent rotation, in an anti-clockwise direction:

The largest ring for the hours;
The median for the minutes;
The starry sapphire glass rotating to the rythm of the seconds.
