Trilobe’s L’Heure Exquise: An Enchanting Leap into Horological Poetry

Trilobe, known for its unique approach to timekeeping, has once again transcended traditional horology with its latest masterpiece, L’Heure Exquise.

This new addition to the “Les Matinaux” collection introduces a lyrical complication to the world of watchmaking, combining celestial aesthetics with a poetic rendition of time.

Reinventing Time with Celestial Elegance
Trilobe’s innovative spirit is evident in the design of L’Heure Exquise, where the sky itself plays a central role. The watch features a moon phase indicator, set against a backdrop of a star-filled sapphire crystal that dances to the rhythm of the seconds.


This design not only showcases the moon’s cycle but also captures the poetic dance of the stars, reflecting Trilobe’s philosophy that time is not just a measure, but a treasure.

A Waltz of Moons on a Sand-Blasted Dial
The dial of L’Heure Exquise is a marvel of engineering and artistry, featuring a sand-blasted surface that mirrors the vastness of the night sky. At its heart, two moons perform a celestial ballet, driven by a gear wheel with 59 cogs that accurately portrays the 29.5-day lunar cycle. This intricate mechanism allows the moons to gracefully reveal their phases, enhancing the watch’s allure and complexity.

Every aspect of L’Heure Exquise reflects a deep respect for watchmaking tradition while boldly pushing the boundaries of design and functionality. The watch’s layout is a nod to Trilobe’s inaugural series, “Les Matinaux,” with five elements on the dial that maintain the original structure but introduce subtle innovations. The numerals are slightly tilted to emphasize the passage of time, and a single trilobe marker points to both hours and minutes, enhancing the visual flow of time.

Available in variations of titanium or rose gold, L’Heure Exquise caters to diverse tastes while maintaining its distinctive aesthetic. The watch is offered in several finishes including Dune, Blue, and Secret, each presenting a unique interpretation of the celestial theme.

The “Secret” Edition: A Personalized Celestial Canvas
The “Secret” edition of L’Heure Exquise allows wearers to immortalize a significant moment against a custom-made starry backdrop. This personalization makes each piece uniquely meaningful, capturing a specific time and place in the stars.

Activated by UV light, the stars on the dial illuminate to bring the cherished moment to life, offering a magical view of time.

Priced at SGD 21,800, including tax, Trilobe’s L’Heure Exquise is a portal to the stars, a reminder to cherish every moment, and a testament to the brand’s commitment to re-enchanting our relationship with time.

It invites wearers to “be in the moon” and savour the exquisite hour, far removed from the hustle and bustle of daily life.
