Received an email today from Tannen's about the following exclusive offering. Intriguing!
Dave
______________________________________________________________________________________
Now is the Time! by Ted Karmilovich $129.95 (IN STOCK AND NOW SHIPPING!)

Over coffee, lunch, or dinner an envelope is placed in full view. At any time during the meal the participant announces that “Now is the time!” The performer states that earlier in the day he wrote out a prediction. He took a non-working watch and set it to the moment he made that prediction. The spectator removes both the prediction and watch from the envelope. The performer has amazingly predicted the exact moment the participant would make her announcement!

Close-up. Stage. Predict other moments. Numerous performance possibilities. No sleights. No electronics. No outside gimmicks. Self-contained. Watch included.

"Pure genius. A GREAT watch prediction. Anytime. Anywhere. And so simple. A masterpiece from the creative mind of Ted K.”
– Neal Scryer

"Convinces anyone they have been part of a psychic experience. Brilliantly conceived. Creates anticipation, builds suspense, and ends with a devastating shock to the participants!”
– Allen Zingg

"A prediction of a moment in time straight from the Twilight Zone.”
– Neal Rider

"An outstanding performance piece for the mentalist, seance, or bizarre worker. It will stun your host and result in a few sleepless nights...”
– Sebastian Black

"A watch effect for the ages. Truly outstanding. Easy to do with excellent impact."
– Tony Razzano
We shall not cease from exploration/And the end of all our exploring/Will be to arrive where we started/And know the place for the first time. (TS Elliot)

Just got this and read through the material. I have not tried it out yet so these are just my initial thoughts. It took me a few minutes to wrap my head around the method. This looks like it will be very effective. It is simple to perform. One can certainly focus just on presentation. I like it very much. I am working an event next week and will definitely include this. Can use for stage or close up. Very nice. Thumbs up.

Please give us a review of the piece when you've done it. I'm interested and real curious.

I am curious about it too, and I would like to read a review, however I am also a little bit skeptical.
I have no idea of how it works, but what would stop the spectators to think that the clock simply stopped working, in same way, when extracted from the envelope?

The spectator is holding the envelope. There is no reason for them to think by opening the envelope something is triggered that stops the watch.

The blurb says that there is also a written prediction?...doesn't that state the exact time as well, or does it just explain that the watch suddenly stopped working?

As I understand it, the prediction states the difference in time between the time on the watch and the present time. The audience adds the length of time noted to the time set on the watch to arrive at the present time.

Ta Daa.

? Someone please correct me.

I think the questions is the correlation between the watch and the written predication?

Meaning is the watch just a dressing for the written prediction, or is it the other way around? Or a third option is that the watch itself and the written predication are both necessary in order for the method to work?

After seeing the effect performed, Tom is right.

The written prediction is shown to be the DIFFERENCE in time between the time the broken watch was set and the current time. There's a little adding involved.
