Innovation and expertise at the service of the dial's poetry
Trilobe breaks the absolute of watchmaking with its eccentric dynamics: a challenge to the traditionally centred watchmaking kinematics. A challenge in terms of manufacturing, energy management, chamfering and materials. Over 3 years of research and development for an extreme precision, reliability and aesthetic purity. 55 pairs of hands, hundreds of hours of work, thousands of hours of reliability testing.It is in Switzerland, in the canton of Neuchâtel, that each Trilobe watch is created.
Three eccentric and movable rings slide on rubies. Each component of time holds a unique place: the largest ring for hours, the median one for minutes, the smallest one for seconds. Each one has its own path, in a counterclockwise direction, without ever overlapping.
Mechanical movement with automatic winding, powered by a highly modified 2892 calibre, with the creation of the X-Centric module. 246 parts in total, 100% Swiss-Made. A tailor-made design, for eccentric dynamics.
The X-Centric Module
A savvy mix of boldness and poetry, our innovation compendium is reflected in the development of our X-Centric module. A patented display device, with 103 tailor-made parts, developed and assembled individually. A technical breakthrough for the control of components clearance. A strong integration of the dressing into the movement. No visible screws. Over 3 years of R&D, structured around 4 pillars.
The inertia of seconds
The serrated time wheel
1st research pillar:
A system for adjusting the disc clearance through eccentrics. The rings, which are particularly energy-consuming, slide on rubies. The guarantee of a precise operating clearance.
2nd research pillar:
the inertia of seconds
Optimized inertia to develop the widest possible disc for reading. The guarantee of movement’s performance.
3rd research pillar:
the serrated time wheel, as life itself
The most complex parts of the module. The hours and minutes rings are made through wire EDM (electrical discharge machining) in Durnico. 6 successive runs are necessary for a perfect making.
4th research pillar:
The technical and weight constraints of the rings and the seconds rose led Trilobe to use aluminium for those parts. The guarantee of a low density.
Created in France,
Crafted in Switzerland
The Trilobe watch was born from a meeting between Gautier Massonneau, the creator of Trilobe and Jean-François Mojon, the spearhead of Swiss watchmaking excellence, who is driven by an extraordinary passion for the most sophisticated complications. It is under the aegis of Jean-François Mojon that the Trilobe display concept was developed.
The craftsmen who manufacture Trilobe watches preserve the ancestral know-how of master watchmakers, in order to create pieces that meet the highest quality standards. Their passion for perfection and manual intelligence is expressed in the invisible details of the movement.
Highly modified 2892 automatic winding calibre with X-Centric module, manufactured by Jean-François Mojon.
