Topo is a bold, contemporary take on the classic circular watches of the 1950s and 60s. A time when smaller timepieces were the height of understated, mid-century elegance. Designed by Bulbul's long-standing partner Kilo, Topo represents the new generation of modern Danish design, presenting a clear contemporary form at the top level of execution.

Topo is made from the best, most resilient components available, such as Italian leather, hardened mineral glass, a matte sandblasted steel case, Japanese-made movements and steel mesh band produced in Pforzheim, Germany.  

We believe that combining a design philosophy that seeks timelessness with high-grade, durable materials, creates watches that are truly long lasting.

Risks and challenges

We have been working with our manufacturers for over five years, and Topo has been underway for more than a year already.
The entire production is lined up and ready to go. Everything has been checked and tested in terms of technical drawings, waterproof testing, prototypes and so on.
As soon as we reach our funding target, we will push the button and start production.
We're confident that we will meet–and possibly beat–our delivery targets.
Having said that, manufacturing always involves an element of risk and uncertainty. We will keep you updated, and should anything occur that might affect delivery, you will be the first to know.
Duty/VAT charges: Our watches will be shipped from Denmark, so please note that you will be responsible for any applicable duty/VAT charges.
Unfortunately there's not much we can do to help with this issue, so if in doubt, we recommend you check with your local customs to learn more about the procedure in your country.
