i want to get a video on the watch steal but i dont know which one to get. which video do you think would be the better one to get? and when you do perform this trick, do people ever catch you when you are doing it?

Mastering the Art of Watch Stealing is probably the best DVD for this subject. I steal watches to get a small group laughing. I usually do a trick poorly so I get caught. Then when they catch me, I say ok, you win, here is your prize. then I give them their watch. it gets great reactions.

Yu need to learn how to steal only 3 types of watch in your life 1-Buckle type 2-Flip tab 3- expanded metal type so i recommend Mastering art of Pickpocketing because in this dvd it teaches you how to steal these 3 types of watches and also ou will learn how to pickpocket too.

Urghh.. don't get anything by James Coats, and majority of the other magicians will tell you so as well. Both his DVDS were absolutely TERRIBLE. Get Chappy Brazil's Watch Steal video which is THE best video you can find on the watch steal.

I recommend Chappy Brazil's Watch Steal Video far more than James Coats'. Another good source (not as good as CB's but still better that JC's) is called Watch Bandit. There's also a great booklet that will probably be pretty hard to find called "The Art of Stealing Watches." I picked it up at a lecture and it contains a bunch of full routines which encorporate a watch steal as part of their presentations.

mastering the art of pickpocketing is a great dvd for stealing watches. because it includes ncholas byrd and james coats. now nicholas byrd is a left handed pickpocket and james coats is a right handed pickpocket so you get two different perspectives on how to watch steal and pickpocket unlike ne thing else in the industry.
