Oh my God I love this. Gonna use it tonight many, many times.

The "explanation" part of the DVD isn't really needed once you see what's included in the package.


So worth getting?

Self contained?

Can you force a different time or is it always the same time? I assume its some sorta of shell on top of the watch.

keepitbottled: sent you a PM. This trick redefines "no skill required". A 2 yr old could it.

This is one of those tricks where it's so stupidly simple, you can't believe it works. After like 10+ performances, I get great reactions. Might just start wearing this as my regular watch.

One tip: Remove the plastic coating from front and back, or you'll have a very bad first performance.

Self contained and worth getting. You can force a different time but at the lecture he says that the time he has works best. I get great reactions and like akirafist said it's no effort when doing the trick.

I saw Josh do this at a lecture recently. It's killer. Very, very simple, yet so effective. Something anyone could have on them at all times.

I'd definitely recommend this to anyone.

I don't know, I'm probably gonna get yelled at for even thinking this but it seems kind of like magic for magicians. I would be kind of bored if just that happened as a spectator. It seems to need kind of a kicker. Would you be able to reveal the position of the hands in any way? I could see using a variation of Note by Matt Sconce to leave just the hands of the selected time on the back of the spectator's hand. Would that be possible in any way?

I agreed until I performed it. Adding smoke to the hands vanish makes for a great ending. I'll do a video if I can find someone to film me. You'll be surprised by the reactions.

It can't be magic for magicians if a magician can figure it out when watching the demo. :wink:

Gotta love in the demo vid when Josh has the time go from 3:15 to 12:20 with just a couple of turns of the dial. 8)

Yeah that's why I get within an hour of the time they choose.

Subtlety for you guys: When you start spinning the dial, ask someone if they have a watch or cell phone, so you can set the correct time again at the end of the trick.

"I'm really screwing up my watch here. Sarah, you have a cellphone or something so I can reset the correct time when we're done?"

I'm using the theme of missing time:

Have you ever had an experience of missing time? Like when you're driving home from work, and arrive at home but don't remember any of the red lights or traffic. I'm going to show you how that works! We'll pull out the pin and change the time on this watch... (insert rest of trick here)

Then finally the hands disappear - demonstrating missing time.
