About The Name
A Tourbillon is a mechanism used in traditional watchmaking. It was a tool invented in mechanical watches to counter the affects that gravity would have on the watch as the watch moved. These rotations would cause inaccuracies over time. The Tourbillon constantly rotates the balance wheel, balance spring, and escapement while the movement continues to run.
The Tourbillon solved this issue by being a constantly moving mechanism, ever evolving to the changes of it’s outside environment. Your online web presence is important, and as fast as technology moves, can become outdated very quickly. At Tourbillon consulting we make sure to adapt to what’s going on in the web development industry so you don’t have to.
I married my high school sweetheart, and together we threw caution to the wind and started this business. Actually, in reality, we have been planning and workings nights/weekends to make this dream come true. We live in a townhouse outside the Greater Philadelphia area with more plants than furniture.
The reason behind the name Tourbillon is derived from my love for automatic watches. A true automatic watch is not a single device used to keep track of time, but a piece of art. Art that is crafted inside a casing that contains the oldest components in time and work together in perfect harmony. The purpose of a classic timepiece is not to appease or contend with the likes of modern technology, but to reach inside the hearts of horologists and resonate with the purist at heart.
Together, Emily and I create beautiful and curated websites that add value to small businesses.
