MASTER's Time Machine

I must say, I was hesitant to pick up the Collector's Time Machine (leather-band version) for quite a while, simply because the watch didn't look like something I would wear. I'm wear a steel "Fossil" watch normally, so the leather band would stick out like a soar thumb. Then the MASTER's Time Machine came along . . .
I had seen the watch all over the internet, but I saw it here at Penguin first. People weren't giving it great reviews . . . maybe because of the price, who knows. I'd say it is easily worth the $129.95 price sticker, if not the entire $150 retail price!
But now that I own the MASTER's Time Machine, I can tell you one thing . . . they were completely wrong.
The watch is absolutely beautiful, the method is ingenious, and best of all, it looks similar to my everyday watch. Like all Magic, it does take a little practice, but once you get it, you won't want to put it down. The Penguin's Only
section has some great suggestions for routines, and I have come up with some interesting ones myself.
Basically, this is how most of the routines go ... add your own twist:
1. Take off your watch and tell the audience you'll make a "prediction"
2. Hold the watch in front of you, with the back of the watch facing the audience.
3. Ask for any number, between 1 and 12 ... that will represent the hour.
4. Ask for another number, between 1 and 60, that will represent the minutes.
Turn the watch around to show that the time on the watch (your prediction) matches what the audience choose.
I can't recommend this enough, check out the MASTER's Time Machine
