If you are a horse racing enthusiast, April comes with a sense of excitement that can only be attributed to the Grand National 2022. After all, this isn’t just about a showcase race, it’s the most famous event in the world of horse racing. Held annually since 1839, more than 500 million people in more than 140 countries watch the forty best jockeys race for three days but only one will get the Grand National main trophy.
However, this historic event is not only a reason for entertainment but also a social event, in which society ladies and gentlemen show new and elegant outfits, in a beautiful and elegant display for the world to see. Men wear formal attire with a classic watch, while the ladies wear a smart dress, often accompanied by a fashionable hat. Still, most of the eyes are set on the latter, as the Ladies Day Style Award grants the best-dressed women during the Grand National.
At Rapport London, we value the exceptional commitment that goes into the hosts, riders, and attendees, for creating a historic heritage for almost two centuries, with passion, commitment, and timeless fashion. And we also know that there’s a fundamental piece of accessory that must play a significant role in this: watches. There’s an ageless bond between the Grand National and timekeeping. Riders need to keep time and pace during their races, hosts need to plan everything on the clock, and guests, well, what are watches but a graceful piece of fashion?
That being said, if you are planning to attend or watch the Grand National, have your watch ready to set the time and take part in history. Here are some Rapport accessories that will come in handy before and after this amazing event.Formula Single Watch Winder
