The merry-go-round of time
Attracting considerable attention within the Fine Watchmaking microcosm due to its new ring-based time read-off, the new Trilobe brand launched last winter is introducing a chromatic transformation of its splendidly refined dials. Eight shades of varying intensities now adorn its inaugural collection Les Matinaux, from sunburst stormy gray to carmine, silver and blue. Its poetic and technically innovative approach is based on the symbiosis between the architectural and literary culture of its young founder Gauthier Massonneau and the widely proven know-how of watch designer Jean-François Mojon. After three years of R&D, they patented the X-Centric module enabling the rotation of the three rings gliding on rubies : a small one for the seconds, a middle one for the minutes and the largest one for the hours, indicated by three fixed trilobe-shaped indicators. This distillation of aesthetics and performance harbors a wealth of detail and talent, confined within a modest yet generous price positioning.
