TRILOBE x DANIEL BUREN, LA RÉCIPROQUE, TRILOBE BY DANIEL BUREN
Model name: La Réciproque, Trilobe par Daniel Buren
Case: Alternating black and white aluminum frame. The back of the clock is protected by glass. The clock can either be fixed on a wall or stand on a table.
Dial: Three eccentric and movable rings slide, each of them in its own position (hours, minutes, seconds), following its own counterclockwise path without ever resting. Hands are replaced by three non-aligned Trilobe index.
Calibre: Designed as the scarlet beating heart of the artwork, this mechanical calibre is a unique creation, combining the architectural codes dear to Trilobe with the artistic vision of the Sculptor Daniel Buren. The D-Centric calibre is designed in France and entirely handmade by Swiss watchmakers. In the purest horological tradition, the clock is equipped with a constant-force escapement, while the barrel has been doubled to provide an eight-day power reserve. It features the excellent finishes of traditional watchmaking, with hand-polishing, diamond-bevelled bridges, as well as sunburst barrels and micro-blasted plates. Balance frequency 2,5hz Power Reserve: 8 days. Movement Components: 590 Functional Jewels: 19
Dimensions: Calibre: diameter 23,5 cm * thickness 4 cm / Clock: large 30cm x long 30cm x thickness 5,15cm
Specificities: The artist has very few collaborations to his credit, but today it is Trilobe time that Daniel Buren has decided to sublimate for the Only Watch cause. This is a unique creation, a true reciprocal between the unique proposal of the artist in immediate dialogue with the "X-Centricity" of Trilobe.

Lot Essay

Trilobe and the Sculptor Daniel Buren have fun with this encounter: opposing forms and colours, disturbing the view, questioning the mind in a unique Artwork. Art and Watchmaking oppose and meet each other, in reciprocal forces.

It is from a desire for reciprocity that the Trilobe par Daniel Buren project was born: to combine a young watchmaking House with a world-renowned Artist. Around a scarlet beating heart, imagine a duality between the technicality of the watchmaker and the unique proposal of the Artist. It is, above all, the exhilarating prospect to realise a unique artwork to serve a great cause.

"La Réciproque" is a true sensory experience:
Forms, colours and meanings find their reciprocal,
Hours, minutes and seconds dance around each other,
Time passes and its form is released,
Black and white marry to the beating of a red heart,
Verticality is amused by circularity,
The frantic race of the "X-Centric" rings overlaps the verticality of the 8.7cm wide strips,
The gaze focuses and circulates to invite one to widen its field of vision,
Shapes finally come together twice a day, at the time when it all began, 2:13pm.

COLLABORATION
Considered one of the most recognised French Artist on the international scene, Daniel Buren has been moving his famous stripes around the world with nearly 3,000 exhibitions, each time creating both enthusiasm and controversy. It is to honour the Only Watch project that the Trilobe watchmaking House and the Sculptor Daniel Buren have decided to offer a unique and meaningful collaboration. This will convince us that this reciprocity between art and watchmaking, is as beautiful as it is between audacity and generosity.

HISTORY OF THE BRAND
Trilobe invites you to embrace difference and to adopt a new frame of reference. A combination of architecture, design, and poetry, Trilobe is a watchmaker that sets time in motion. Three rotating rings are set in motion, each bearing a gradation of time: the largest ring for the hours, the middle one for the minutes, and the smallest for the seconds. Eccentric and mobile, they turn counterclockwise. The three trilobes, a universal and timeless architectural shape, echo the three pillars of time - Hours, Minutes and Seconds - and become the new time indicator. With its eccentric dynamics, innovation, and expertise place themselves at the service of the dial’s poetry. Our innovation compendium translates into the development of our X-Centric calibre, with the task of combining the technical challenge with an ‘‘artistically offbeat’’ approach, while perpetuating Swiss watchmaking excellence. Thus, another vision of time is born: hands less, but with a sprinkle of magic!
