Une Folle Journée Dune
Power reserve: 48 h, 28800 variations / hours
One year after the launch of its model Une Folle Journée, Trilobe is offering a new interpretation of its collection, “Dune”. With its eccentric rotating and floating rings, this model hits new heights by combining fine watchmaking traditions with contemporary design.
Rings propelled into the air
For this new edition, the three iconic levitating rings, in permanent rotation, don stormy grey robes.
The rings of the hours, minutes and seconds are tiered and fly at a 10.2mm height, a true watchmaking achievement. Projected into space and balanced by 9 pillars, Trilobe’s rings are each the result of a complex assembly.
The unparalleled lightness of the titanium-aluminium-vanadium alloy allows the three rings to be propelled into the air. This alloy is one of the most dense and complex to work with and, once processed, offers an exceptional level of finish.
These three discs are highlighted by the singular color of the bridges, for a creation both raw and delicate.
Emphasizing and sublimating the rings of time by a contrast of colours and materials, the bridges don their summer dress with a hue reminiscent of dune sand.
The surface treatment of the bridges reveals the presence of the X-Centric calibre and creates the illusion of sand settled on the face of the movement.
The subtle tint of the bridges awakens under the light of the polished edges, like grains of sand in a desert lit by a radiant sun.
A movement in space
The dial, open for the first time, shows a technical motor assembly with 196 custom-made components and enables the watch-owner to savour the craftsmanship of an exceptional calibre.
Une Folle Journée Dune is equipped with the X-Centric calibre, an automatic movement designed and developed exclusively by Trilobe. Integrated into the X-Centric calibre, the 6.49 mm thick micro-rotor movement combines finesse and technical performance.
Entirely revisited for the collection Une Folle Journée, the X-Centric calibre is taking shape around multi-tiered bridges and plates, whose sharp edges have been carefully polished by hand or with diamond tools to emphasize the micro blasted treatment applied on their surfaces.
Take-off under a sapphire dome
Manufactured in Japan, using flame fusion, this sapphire dome is then smoothed and polished in Switzerland.
Three rotating rings rush forward, carrying with them the scales of time: the largest ring is for the
hours, the median for the minutes, the smallest for the seconds.
The concave curve of the rings and the precision of the stamped numerals highlight exceptional watchmaking expertise.
A pointer allows immediate reading of hours, minutes and seconds.
