A FAMILY BUSINESS
It all began in 1898 when Maurice A. Rapport produced his first timepiece. He could have had no idea that the business he had founded would become a household name in clockmaking and horology worldwide and that the clocks produced by the company would find themselves gracing fine homes in all four corners of the globe.
Rapport established itself as a household name in the making of grandfather clocks and wooden carriage clocks. The company quickly grew and the family expanded. These foundations years cemented the core value and philosophy of quality and expert craft that we still use today.
Whilst the Rapport brand had earned its reputable name within the United Kingdom, it began global export. While on a small scale, the company faced entering new territories, evolving to understand the new whilst remaining true to the brand's foundation.
Skilled craftsman used their expert knowledge on trends and materials to introduce Rapport's collection of brass carriage clocks.
In 1980, Rapport expanded it's product offering by launching it's first watch box and watch travel accessory collections. Remaining true to time, the move from clocks to watch accessories allowed Rapport to create a place for you to preserve your timepieces.
Rapport was expanding worldwide, forming strong relationships with major retailers globally. The collection of watch winders, watch boxes and leather accessories is expanding with new designs and with improvements made to produce the finest products for a global audience.
Rapport began its genuine sustainability journey as a luxury company by making big commitments to reduce its carbon footprint. We are constantly looking at the best way of doing things in each business area, from supply chain and materials to our team and charitable endeavours.
Through extensive research and design work, the team launched its ladies range including trunks, jewellery boxes and travel accessories. The collection featured exclusive styles, handmade in various textured leathers, all lined in the softest suede for storage.
We are continuing to serve modern luxury watch owners around the world. In 2023 Rapport developed and launched its largest watch winder to date, the Paramount Twenty Watch Winder, with advanced fingerprint access and touchscreen control panels.
