Everyone Has A Tourbillon

Tourbillon in French, Tourbillon in French, which means ‘vortex’, is the ‘rotary escapement speed-regulating mechanism’ in mechanical clocks. The balance wheel and the escapement can rotate 360 ​​° together at the same time, so as to minimize the influence of gravity and improve the travel time accuracy. Master watchmakers use the tourbillon to show their superb skills, but the owner of the watch can feel the passing of time and the preciousness of the moment while the tourbillon is rotating.
