"Quixotic Watch Company is currently considering sponsorship of athletes including golfers, race car drivers, and other top level athletes." (from the Quixotic Watch Company website)
Maybe they'd consider sponsoring my blog?


(Below is the original text of Terry's "tourbillon" post)


Tourbillon:

A device in some mechanical watches that eliminates timekeeping errors caused by slight variations due to shifts in gravity when a watch changes position during use. The round carriage or "cage" of the tourbillon holds the mechanisms that rotate the wheels, and thus the hands of the watch, in a continuous rate of once per minute.

The action of a tourbillon resembles that of a windmill.

Thus - the word "tourbillon" seems a perfect fit to by submitted by Quixotic Watch Company to the Quixotica blog.
Yes it does Terry. Yes it does.
