NEW Trilobe Les Matinaux  L’Heure Exquise

In haute horology, Trilobe stands out not just as a watchmaker but as a craftsman of time itself, weaving poetry into the very fabric of its creations. With the introduction of the “Les Matinaux” collection, Trilobe ventures for the first time into the realm of complications, showcasing a timepiece that elegantly features a moon phase known as, L’Heure Exquise. This bold move exemplifies the brand’s commitment to reinventing timekeeping, transcending traditional constraints with a blend of audacity and poetic vision.

The Celestial Ballet of “Les Matinaux”

The NEW L’Heure Exquise brings a novel interpretation to timekeeping, marrying it with the eternal beauty of the cosmos. The collection opens a celestial gateway on the dial, framed by a polished and satin-finished flange, where stars perform a dance across a sapphire crystal, marking the passage of seconds. Beneath this astral waltz, dual moons engage in a graceful duet, their dance choreographed to the innovative X-Centric calibre. This timepiece is not merely an instrument for measuring hours but an invitation to experience time as a continuum of moments, each as exquisite as the hour.

Trilobe’s Moon Phase: A Lyrical Ode to the Night Sky

The moon phase complication in L’Heure Exquise represents more than a technical achievement; it is a lyrical ode to the night sky. Echoing the moon’s orbit with a 59-cog gear wheel, this feature accurately portrays the lunar cycle, inviting wearers to connect with the celestial rhythm. For the first time, Trilobe links the moon phase directly to the seconds wheel, creating a dynamic portrayal of the moon’s phases against a star-studded backdrop. This innovation honors the collection’s name, derived from the early morning hours, by presenting time in a continuous, poetic flow.

At the end of the day…

To be candid, among Trilobe’s collections, Les Matinaux never quite captivated me as much as the others—it always seemed to lack something. However, this latest addition transforms the collection, beautifully bridging the gap I felt existed. This new model enriches Les Matinaux with a poetic depth, drawing us away from the hustle of daily life to marvel at the universe’s vast beauty. Not only is it a feast for the eyes, with its romantic allure pulling us into an otherworldly realm, but it also serves as a subtle nudge towards boundless creativity. The introduction of the Trilobe motif, representing the foundational elements of time—hours, minutes, and seconds—honors the brand’s origins and propels it into a new realm of whimsical elegance that feels quintessentially French
