Trilobe “Les Matinaux” Only Watch Edition, Tribute to René Char

Trilobe is supporting the Only Watch 2019 charity auction by creating a unique bronze edition of their flagship collection, “Les Matinaux”.

The Trilobe exclusive piece “Les Matinaux” – Only Watch 2019 – is a tribute to all communities fighting strongly and audaciously for effective research and patient’s treatments in the future. This unique piece is the first bronze edition from the Trilobe “Les Matinaux” collection.

René Char is a French poet who fearlessly shouted out (Impose your luck, embrace your happiness and go toward your risks: by looking at you, they’ll get used to it.). With the courtesy of Madame Char and Gallimard Publishing House, the back of the watch has been exclusively engraved with his quote along with the poet’s original signature.
