Bulbul is a Danish watch designer brand launched and headquartered in Copenhagen in 2013 founded by globetrotter and entrepreneur, Jacob Juul. The slightly rounded, asymmetrical Pebble watch is the debut design among the Bulbul collection. Juul worked with Kibisi, a collaboration of Danish design-musketeers comprising Kilo Design’s Lars Holme Larsen, BIG’s Bjarke Ingels and Skibsted Ideation’s Jens Martin Skibsted to develop the Pebble watch which is made of a 316L Steel Case and inspired by the shapes of pebbles seen in beaches.
The Bulbul watches are a combination of elegance and design yet they come at affordable cost. Bulbul merges creativity with high quality materials, industry’s craftsmanship, and extraordinary aesthetics. While the Bulbul watches appear so simple to the eye, these watches are extremely complex to produce. The Bulbul pebble watch can hold a Swiss made four Jewels and gold plated, Ronda Movement with a battery life of up to ten years.
The asymmetrical shape runs through every nook of the watch – from the top-ring, the case(front), the case (back), to the dial and the sapphire crystal. All parts of the Bulbul watch are perfectly matched so it features a 3 ATM water resistance. This watch is a truly unique designer timepiece as every single part of the watch, except for the movement, is designed and developed from scratch. The watch rests on a Double Sided Italian Leather Strap and comes with a Sapphire Crystal. Its measurement stands at 37 x 40 x 8 mm.
“Traditional watch designers do something they know,” Juul explained. “The Pebble was very difficult to make – if we’d known from the outset how hard it would be, we would not have tried, and we never would have developed something iconic.”
The brand name comes from a song bird called Mohawk which has been described as strong, rowdy, with an independent will. These reflect Juul’s values. The watch’s design is a two year work which began after Juul visited Baselworld in 2011. He says the watch is a “…classic Scandinavian design with a little twist.”
