An invitation to reach new heights
Remaining faithful to our Maison’s offset artistic DNA, Une Folle Journée is a piece which echoes Trilobe’s first editions and puts our fundamental pillars into perspective. With its rotating and floating eccentric rings, this collection hits new heights by combining fine watchmaking traditions with a contemporary design.
Our Inspiration : Beaumarchais (Le Mariage de Figaro)
The brilliant rhythm of a thrilling storyline which takes us on an unforgettable journey. One of enthusiasm, passion, and panache. Following in the footsteps of Figaro, the main purpose with this piece is to shatter the shackles of tradition by passionately embracing freedom and emancipation. While Beaumarchais, well-known playwright and clockmaker to the King of France, sharpens his pen to fight against a narrow-minded society, Trilobe makes a creative statement in favour of X-Centricity. This freedom bias gives rise to an artistic take: break the rules, ban hands. More than an invitation, Une Folle Journée urges you to embrace your difference.
The Watch hits new heights to forge a technical bond between its off-centre rings and its X-Centric³ (cubic) signature movement. This is what makes the strength of Trilobe’s innovation: the rings are intrinsic to the movement, which alone makes it possible to free Time.
A movement in space
The dial, open for the first time, enables to savour the watchmaking craftsmanship of a Swiss Made calibre, without losing sight of the rotating rings’ singularity. The unfolding of the complication, signed by Trilobe, gives curious onlookers the opportunity to contemplate a striking movement powerfully revisited. The three-dimensional design offers a view on a technical motor assembly with 196 custom-made components.
The rings propelled into the air
The three rings of the hours, minutes and seconds are tiered and fly at a 10.2mm height, a true watchmaking prowess. Projected in space and balanced by 9 pillars, Trilobe’s rings are each the result of a complex assembly.
Like a flying saucer
Une Folle Journée is available in black and blue and comes in a titanium grade 5 case, built with brought lugs around a case middle alternating polished and satin finish.
