Tourbillon Cufflinks by Tf Est. 1968

You gotto love them, these new Tourbillon Cuff links, which I think is a brilliant idea. The sleek elegance of the cuff links add a sense of mysterious motion to the wearer. Perfectly round and crafted in steel, the tourbillon will move with the motion of the wearers wrist. A transparent mineral crystal coated with Sapphire ensures scratch resistance and maximum shock absorption. In order to prevent humidity from entering the cuff link, it is almost waterproof - a term not used in watch descriptions, but quite okay in describing these cufflinks. Nnot an actual tourbillon movement as one would find in a watch, the cuff links are rather a hair balance movement with an escapement wheel, to mimic the tourbillon movement. This is done very well, and the effect is outstanding.
The cufflinks salute the Tourbillon, which is an hypnotic complication invented in 1795 by French watchmaker Abraham-Louis Breguet, a century after Newton defined gravity. Breguet reasoned that as a result of the constant position of the vertical position of the pocket watch, the balance spring is confounded by the effect of gravity effecting the accuracy of the watch. This error could be compensated with a tourbillion whereby the escapement, balance wheel, and balance spring is placed in a rotating carriage which turns once per minute on its own axis.

Cufflinks are all for the fashion and the show and there is no better way to draw attention to your latest acquisition than a captivating model tourbillon.

The Tourbillon cuff link is shock resistant and water resistant able to withstand sharp movements. If by some unfortunate circumstances whereby a certain "used to be loved one" throws a glass of champagne into your face and onto your shirt,for a reason you cannot quite fathom, your watertight cuff links are safe. (Now I am not saying this will happen). If the situation gets worst and you find yourself running through the streets with the large brother "of used to be loved one" hot at your heels, for a reason you still cannot quite fathom, your cuff links will remain securely fastened on your sleeve, as they are anchored by an extremely dependable snappy precision clasp system.
