Warning: This effect is too strong for use on all audiences. Some spectators experience temporary socially-inappropriate FREAKING OUT. Others FREAK OUT permanently.

If you were born to perform... this effect was born for you.

You show your watch to your spectators, letting them verify the present time.

The watch is set to the proper time and is ticking away like normal.

You remove the watch as you tell your spectators (in an intriquing voice) that you're going to make a prediction. You confidently set the watch to a new time.

Once you've settled on your prediction you hold the watch by the very end of the band. The back of the watch is facing your spectators. The watch is dangling innocently, completely out in the open.

The prediction has been made. The predicted watch time cannot possibly be tampered with or readjusted.

You calmly ask one of your spectators to imagine any time of the day, even to the exact minute.

The spectator announces a time, let's say 2:47... You smile, look deep into your spectator's eyes, smile again, and...

hand the watch to your spectator revealing an exact match to her announced time!

Caveat emptor! But NOT a waste Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 9th, 2006
You will need a great presentation for this effect - while the method is 99% accurate, your patter will need to be fairly well rehearsed to pull it off 100% of the time.

Do NOT buy this if you do not have extensive performance experience or lack of performer confidence. While this trick is good it's not something you want to buy until you have a good show or other excellent effects to build rapport.

Poor _performance_ will result in people not believing this AT ALL.

Yes, the effect is exactly what you read above. But, trust me, you will need to have experience in psychological build-up of your audience as your patter is 90% of the effect.

Currently, the instructions included with this effect will disappoint you if you do not have the patience or experience of many hours of performance. Do not let this put you off purchasing the effect! But just know that you cannot put this in your show immediately after receiving it... It is NOT that straight forward.

What it is: It's a watch. But this is no ordinary watch. You set a certain time. You then ask a spectator to think of and name any time. You show them the face of the watch which is set to the EXACT time they were thinking of.

Price: . Pretty good for what you get.

Quality: The quality of the watch is beautiful. The mechanism is a bit slow, and you need some patter before revealing the time. My battery died after a few months, so I took it to my local magic shop. Turns out that this watch is FAKE. The original is called "Watch and Wear" which is sold here on Penguin for a little under 0.

Overall: If your willing on spending on a fake version, go ahead.

Yes it is stunning but there is a huge prblem. Everyone will want to examine the watch. It doesn't look real. Oh yah ine more thing...IT DOESN"T HAVE A SECOND HAND!
With this one person he thought of a second too. I had no choice but to let the trick go through. THERE is your reputation. ALso when you display the time you can see there is no second hand. Take my advice guys this IS NOT one you want. If you must have one go for the masters orn the gentlemans!

This is an amazing illusion. But 3 out of ten people will ask to examine it. so...What I recomend is using billets or something to get your spectators attention of the watch.When you do this...well the reaction is nothing.NOthing but stunned silence.Truely wonderful effect 10/10

I had no problem with the watch. I bought mine 3 years ago & it works now just as it did then. I replaced the battery, thats it. You can wear this watch as an everyday watch, it keeps perfect time. If you want a fantastic mentalism effect this is it. If you do not have this effect you are losing out on great things. It is so strong that it made my now wife believe that I was truly astonishing.

Ok first of all this trick is not dependable! I bought this trick a couple of days ago and it was broken! It wasn't the batteries it was the watch! Plus it looks fake and is really fragile and most people want to look at the watch because of the look. If you have the money and want something like this bad then just get the Masters Time Machine. It's better plus it doesn't look fake and it's not that much more. Trust me it's worth it!!!

well... it should be better becaue it's a great efffect Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 14th, 2006
I got the watch.. rehearsed.. found a nice story with an astrological theme to cover for time ... I use the same story all the time..

For some reason.. this effect just doesn't get the audience reaction I think it deserves..

Most people just go.. cool... and that's it.

I don't think it's the performance.. I've had more than a few spectators ask.. wow.. is the watch voice controlled?

I think modern technology is out to screw us... sometimes the thoughts behind how it's done are just better than the outcome.

Never leave home without it Report this review

This is great - I don't do much mental magic, but when I do I use this.

I find it more powerful when saved for when the audience is in the mood to accept a bit of metalisum rather than those 'show me a trick' situations, I treat this as an 'experiment' and NOT a trick, when it works, it always does ;-) it floors 'em!!

Wear it as your normal watch - mines looking a bit old and grubby now which only adds to the effect, don't come out with a sparkling new watch a perform this, wear it for a month or two first (if you can bear to wait that long before performing)

I love this design rather than the flashier watches as for me it looks more casual and natural to wear all the time, Only one person has suspected the watch, but once they handled it as saw how 'normal' it was they were satisfied, they thought there were wires and buttons in the strap to control it!

You need good patter, sometimes up to a minute, but have it planned out first, be slow and serious and shorten it if/when you need to.

Fantasticly easy, can be tricky getting the minutes exact without practise - but even 2 mins 'off' if presented as an 'experiment' it still kills!!

Highly recommended, even if only performed once a month as hobbiest or Pro, it's great to have in your arsnel..

Well Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 21st, 2006
I geuss it is alright but people will sometimes ask to examine the watch and they can figure out how it is done. However it works really good if you have an assistant wearing the watch before the show so it looks like you are taking a spectators watch when it is acually a set up.

Overall, it is a good effect.
