The Optima series is the new generation of Watch Winders. They still bear the same quality of materials
and craftsmanship of the Perpetua series – yet Rapport are pushing the boundaries of design by utilising
modern materials and advanced manufacturing techniques.
The watch carriers in this series have improved flexibility to accommodate virtually any size watch strap,
leather or metal bracelet. There is a screw adjustment to the front of the carrier and a sprung pad on
the reverse. A soft padded leather covering prevents damage to the watch. The carrier then slots snugly
into the driving mechanism and there is no danger of the watch falling off its mount.
An additional advantage of the Optima drive is that, every time the drum comes to a standstill, the
watch remains in the vertical position (providing it has been mounted in that way).
These ranges also incorporate the next generation of technology in watch wider mechanisms - they can
be set to revolve in one direction only (clockwise or anti-clockwise) or in a combination of both
directions and there is infinite control on the speed of rotation. These elements of control are vital for
certain types of automatic watches and you should refer to manufacturers’ recommendations to obtain
optimum results from your watch winder.
