I am looking for a watch that one can do coin or card in watch with. I think Alex Lourido put out a watch that did coin or card in watch, it also had an invisible thread reel in it aswell. Does anyone know what its called and where to get it or does anyone know of a watch that does this?

Thank you,

Ari

Here it is. http://www.wizardhq.com/servlet/the-749 ... lex/Detail

Not sure if they'll still have it, as it's been discontinued from Penguin, and other sites. But it can't hurt to email these folks to see if they have it in stock.

Thanks Brisco. Do you know of any other watches that do the same type thing (coin/card in watch)?

The perfect "signed" coin to watch!

WATCHED is the next generation "Card to Watch". It is totally new. WATCHED is a specially designed fully functional timepiece.
This watch is revolutionary in its design and ease of use. This effect can be performed anywhere, anytime.

Imagine, taking a borrowed coin from an audience member. Have them initial one side and you the other.
The coin vanishes only to appear under the crystal of your wristwatch. Sounds vaguely familiar, doesn't it?
There have been other attempts to create this mystery. However, they use a non-functioning watch and gymnastics to get the job done.
WATCHED is the perfect "signed" coin to watch.

I had Alex Lourido watch it looks kinda like this one. Iam sure that you can do some card tricks with this one also. The IT reel on Alex Lourido watch I did not like at all. Very hard to put the IT in and you had to keep your wrist in one position or the IT moved or even broke.

This new watched is just for coins, but by watching the video it looks like to can use a corner of a card also. That is all you can use with Alex Lourido watch.

(without reveal) can you openly show the coin in the watch or is it kinda just a shuttle pass from the watch to waiting hand?? If you know.

Thanks,

Ari

ps:is it one size fits all?

It is not one size fits all. I had to take out a few links. Nice looking watch and it keeps time. The new watch thats out if you look it up it shows the coin through the glass on top befor you open it. With Alex Lourido's watch you have to open it up 1 st to see the coin. I cant say if you do any slight of hand with the new watch or with Alex Lourido's. I think that would be revealing how its done. Dont take it the wroung way I liked Alex Lourido's watch but I did not like the IT reel. This new watch I dont have so I cant say.

you can also have the symbol of a card "fogged" onto the watch glass. Then, when you breath on your watch, the selected card can be read in the fog on the glass.

Does "watched" come with instructions or a dvd or what?

Thanks again for sharing your knowledge of these products with me.

Do you know how to leave messages on someone's bathroom mirror? Similar concept. Except it has to be cold outside, preferably snow.

I've never actually done this with a watch, just with a drinking glass with ice in it. (and of course leaving messages on someone's bathroom mirror in secret when I was younger).

That being said, I think it will work.

There's a trick called the Watch Crystal that has a permanent effect like this on a piece of glass. Maybe contact the creator?

Wouldn't let me edit my post for some reason. In Practical Mental Magic, there's a method for having the image of a card appear in a crystal ball. Someone run with it...

You could look into that Ghost Glass stuff. Though not permanent it is a little more long lasting than el's suggestion. Mini- if you are referring to the effect I'm thinking of...I'm not sure how that would work with a watch?

Just a last thought, not to change the direction of this thread but how important is it that it is a watch? I have been playing with Serendipity(ring/coin in Zippo lighter) lately and I have been having great success with it. It is like having a mini-lippincott with you at all times.
