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.

Requires Presentation Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 19th, 2003
This is one slick effect. I've fooled eveyone I've shown, even when I muffed it by 5 minutes. HOWEVER it does require some degree of ad libbing. You must have something to say at certain times during to presentation to allow the trick to work. So you'll have to come up with clever patter or an interesting story. But hey, that's part of the fun. My only complaint is that the watch is a little TOO generic looking. Who makes a generic watch like that? K-Mart? I don't know. I've started telling my friends that it's my dead uncle's cheap watch that just never kept time.

Pretty cool Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 21st, 2003
This trick is everything it is advertised to be. Be prepared to have some patter ready to go and be able to ad lib if the situation calls for it. The watch is examinable before and after the effect. This does double as a regular watch and while it does look and feel like a cheaper watch (something you might spend on in a dept store), it is built pretty well and doesn't feel or look fake or fragile to me in any way.

The Trick that stays with you Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 18th, 2003
The time machine allows me to perform at anytime anywhere using something that I wear. I have used it using various patters and it has always proved to be a good value. I wear it every day so it really is my regular watch and looks good.

The FUN is in the performance! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 30th, 2003
When I first got it I thought Hmmm... okay, (scratches head) this is going to take quite some practice with regards to stalling (see the "ad lib" mentions in other posts). I eventually got up the nerve to try it on people and it isn't actually hard. The FUN is in the performance! It leaves you with so much room to create your own patter... but its not hard to do! You'll feel like a Kreskin or someone. A lot of magic tricks are over within a few seconds, but you can have fun building up the "revelation" with this effect. If you buy it check out my routine in the Penguins Only section. Reactions I receive based on my performances are stunned silence.
Its a closer. This effect truly is "Born to Perform".

THE BEST MENTAL TRICK OUT THERE Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 3rd, 2003
VERY VERY GOOD. REQUIRES SOME PRATICE AND SOME YOU TO TALK A LOT. THE WATCH LOOK GOOD AND FEELS GOOD TO WEAR. WORTH EVERY PENNY. BUT YOU HAVE TO BE CAREFULL WHEN REPLACING THE BATTERY.

When I did this effect to my mom she was like "Is there a voice recorder in there?" A truly amazing effect

More than meets the eye! Report this review

You know, the effect here is strong enough and WELL worth the money. But consider this, what other great effect really challenge you to become creative when it comes to patter. Myself personally, I am a Comedy Magician and the very first time I performed this great miracle I found myself coming up with some impressive one-liners to help both with the time needed as well as the cover up for the locking of the watch. The possibilities are endless as far as routines go. Don't overlook this- it truly is destine to become an all-time great! Keep up the good work Penguin!
