I have several time machines for performing in various settings and/or outfits. I love them all, but
this is easily my favorite.
I have NEVER had an issue with the reveal. Generally speaking,
from the time they give me their answer to the time I reveal the watch is MAYBE 15 seconds at worst.
And 15 seconds is nothing.
If people are having to wait a significant amount of time
before revealing, then they need to work on their presentation a bit.
I can't say enough
good things about the effect.

This watch is really ordinary looking, which is great. There is nothing about it that looks
suspicious. Also it works really good! the only bad thing ablout it is that it rattles. But u can
live with it:)
I'm sure most of you reading this will already understand the workings (a principle that I love), so
I will review the watch itself.
For a start it is a very good looking watch. It does look
"unique" but in my opinion in a good way (the lack of second had does look a little strange). It is
of very high quality in all respects apart from one. Mine seems to have developed a slight rattling.
I'm not sure if it's always had it but it is a little annoying as I wear this as my day-to-day
But I ado like it. Very much. The stalling obviously is a problem if you see it as such,
but i prefer to look at it as an excuse for patter and building up of tension.
love it and it is a great day-to-day effect, especially for strangers.
I wear this watch as my daily time piece. It looks nice and worn in. The other day I needed a new
band for it. I went to Wal*mart and was talking to the lady in the watch department. I told her it
was a haunted watch and because of that I could do amazing things, like hear her thoughts under the
right conditions. I told her to think of an event in her life associated with a time. I said to look
at my forhead an imagine the time there. I said,"pick just one, your vasilating back and forth". She
finally did. I then asked her the time she chose. She said February 12, 1995. I said "that explains
why I felt you vasilating, I need and actual time on the clock". She did, I got it right on the
minute. She was awstruck. It turned out to be when her husband died of cancer. We had a nice
discussion and i left with a new band and she was smiling. I love this thing. I have the classic
that is gold tone and not as nice looking as the black. I find making the statement about choosing
is a good cover. Most women will choose either their wedding or the birth of a child. This sets you
up for a second bit when you can tell them what they had been debating between.
Good. The time in between reveal can be scary, but enough verbals and you will pull it off.
This effect is amazing if done right. But to really get this effect you have to have good patter.
And when you put in the time to practice which is about a few hours it will be amazing. Add to
I had high hopes for this one but when you do get it, its not the same as how it looks, its hard to
nail the time and the "stalling" time is a downfall and gives it away slightly. Expensive and my
biggest let down, not recommended
We just got in a few of these in the shop I work in and they are much, much better looking in
person. I thought they looked cheesy from the picture, but they look nice and professional.
This effect has amazing results. I am 12 and I did it in front of my mom and she practicaly went
into shock. I have also done this on other people and they love it! No one has ever figured it out,
and I highly doubt anyone ever will. They love it, I love it, and thats why I gave it five stars.
