If you've been a follower or reader of The Rake for any period of time, you'll know that we have a sister magazine, Revolution, the world's biggest title for watch aficionados. You'll also know that our founder Wei Koh is also a serious authority in the watch industry and in the last year alone has brought to market a number of exclusive collaborations with the likes of TAG Heuer, Chopard, Hublot, Bell & Ross, IWC, and Rado (look out for another very special collaboration to be announced very soon), all of which were available exclusively to Rake readers.
If you are a newbie to the watch world and are just starting to dip a toe in the very deep water, or are even a seasoned collector, you'll know that serious timepieces require serious storage, mostly in the form of winders, rolls and cases. There are only a handful of brands who specialise in such items, one of which is Rapport, founded in 1898 by an ambitious 20-year-old watchmaker by the name of Maurice A. Rapport, It was in that year that he created his first timepiece, which was received so well that he decided to make a business of it, and a damn good one to boot.
