This is a great Mentalism effect that will absolutely stun your audiences! ... combining both a card prediction and time prediction with this magnificent and elegant pocket watch!
The Magician asks a spectator to think of a time of day (or night) that holds special significance for that person. Perhaps their time of birth, the time a particular train departed, or any other time that is important to them personally. Once the spectator has their time, the Magician asks them to focus and concentrate on their time. They are given a marker and pad of paper and are asked to write the time down. The spectator is asked to write the time very large so that it can be shown to everyone later, and they are told to not bother with the minutes and just write down the hour of the time.
Next, the spectator is given a deck of cards and asked to shuffle the deck. The spectator is then instructed, while the Magician has his back turned, to remove cards from the top of the deck equal to the number of the chosen hour. For example, if the spectator's time is 10:00, then they should remove 10 cards from the top of the deck. This 10th card is now their card. Let's assume their card is the 3 of Diamonds.
After some more conversation and explanation to the audience that this is not a card trick, the Magician places his right hand on his forehead, apparently concentrating deeply. He then places his left hand in his pocket and pulls out a beautifully ornate pocket watch. He opens up the pocket watch, revealing that the time on the watch reads 10:00 and there is a small 3 of Diamonds card inside the pocket watch!
The pocket watch is of the finest quality. Made in France, it is 100% mechanical with no plastic parts.
