Hey guys, what i wanted to ask was, how do you go about practicing a watch steal? Is the only way getting out there in the real world and doing it? or is there a way i can go about using something as an arm, making something ect. What do i do?

I'd buy Chappy Brazil's DVD on watch stealing. It's really good, and will cover everything you need to know.

P.S. I heard from the people at my local shop that Chappy died on the way back from filming that DVD? True or false?

Chappy did die, and it could have been possibly like what you heard. I'm not completely sure though. He was great though.

As for the watch steal. Find a friend or relative who will allow you to practice on them. Now, they will know what you are doing, but that's alright. Just keep practicing until you can get it right.

Thanks fallingblood. Occasionally i will do it on my family members, i tell them first then give it ago. Its just hard to get consistent practice. And with the dvds does he explain any methods of supplementing something for an arm?

I can't remember off hand. But you can always take a broom, and wrap a towel around it. That could help.

That's exactly what I did to practice when I couldn't get a friend to volunteer.

No problem. Just make ABSOLUTELY sure you know how to open different kinds of bands. I picked up 5 different watches at K-mart for about $20 total. One tip from Michael Finney, be careful about the rubbery plastic bands, because they can snap back and make noise.

Keep us updated on how it goes!
