Rapport London have called upon all of their crafts developed in house to impress even the most discerning of customers. These skills include those of a cabinet maker, clock maker and electrical engineer to produce a collection that leads the way when it comes to developing clocks and watch winders.
Why use a watch winder you may ask? Well, an automatic watch has a mechanism that requires regular motion to keep the inner spring constantly charged. This motion is usually provided as it is worn. Once removed from the wrist the stored energy will only run for 24-72 hours, depending upon the model, then the watch will need to be manually rewound and reset. These watches are highly technical instruments that need at least yearly servicing to keep them ticking over perfectly. The Rapport London watch winders have features designed to mimic the action of a watch being worn. The watch is held at a precise angle while being rotated and the winder can be set to run intermittently so that the watch is not permanently fully wound.
The boxes are rather beautiful too - with the outer surfaces being finished with hand applied lacquer and the interiors being lined with a soft feel velvet fabric which not only looks good but adds to the protective environment for your prestigious watches. This level of supreme luxury can also be found in the superb watch boxes, pocket watches and trunks which can be made to your exacting specifications.
