You will notice the Breitlings on more of the younger gen. Most of the older business men who go towards the Rolex, Patek, JLC, Zenith, Frank Muller, etc.

I think the CP watch looks very "child like" If I was to produce one I would create a custom dial that looks dressy. However it would be fine for an everyday watch. I would never wear that during a formal performance.

I guess some put more status into watches than I thought. CP for me is simply the best kind of device for the desired effect. I have to attend 4-5 meetings a day so it is very functional for me as well. That's what I care about, how functional it is. I wouldn't be caught dead with a Rolex as there are so many fakes out there that you can't tell apart, they are becoming a very cheap status symbol. At the end of the day, CP is just a fantastic device, and very inexpensive for what it is designed for.

You guys, knock it off about which watch is better. Everyone has their opinion. I hate Rolex and Breitling, and Tag, etc... There are watch forums for this kind of discussion. If your watches do not match this:

then it doesn't matter. The Cabestan costs $275,000 and $400,000 for the diamond and platinum version. You know that most people will judge your magic performance based on the type of watch you wear, not on the entertainment value of your magic.

This topic is for Child's Play dress watch. I am glad to hear that there are several people that enjoy the sport digital watch and others that enjoy the dress model. I agree that the dress model is not the fanciest looking or highest quality watch, but from typical non-watch connoisseurs point of view, it does look quite nice and has hidden magic applications.

Thank you,

Tom

I think Tom makes The Cabestan too.

BTW The CP dress watch looks like something 007 would wear to the Monte Carlo Casino.

Tom, that is one of the coolest looking watches... ever. My personal dream watch would be one from Patek Phillipe though. However a large part of their line costs as much as a new sedan with all the trimmings. Let's not get into the very exclusive Patek Phillipe watches that goes upwards of a million +. I've only seen one person wearing one ever in my life (doubt it's a million + model, but I believe it was around 40-50 thousand if not more). To my knowledge, Patek Phillipe is one of the few manufacturers in the world that still hand craft all of their watches, Max, correct me if I'm mistaken.

OK- so we get that you guys know watches. It serves no purpose by continuing with what watches you like. As Tom says watches are a matter of personal taste just as clothing or anything else. As a former jeweler of 20 years I could also comment on watches but that was not the intent of this thread and would serve no purpose other than show off my knowledge of watches. The thread was about the CPIII dress model. I know this is going to sound biased since I am one of the developers but this is getting to the point of ridiculous. The thread is supposed to be about the honest reviews of a product as it pertains to a magic effect NOT personal tastes in watches.

This watch is, IMHO, the best ma***t detector out there. Not just for the stealthy, whisper-quiet, dependable way in which it functions.... but also because it is an absolutely gorgeous piece of craftsmanship. Hardly a day goes by when I do not receive a comment about how beautiful my watch is- it really looks and feels as if it should cost five times as much. In addition, I couldn't be more pleased with Ron Frank's customer service. I had a small issue with a marble from his Child's Play effect, and no questions asked, he offered to exchange it on the spot, months after purchase, no questions asked. So kudos to Kracker and Frank, and thanks guys!


Well, I love my dress version too. Looks fine, and is very quiet.

Piers.

Trixta, question, why would you need a mag detector if you already have the UFOII?

I can't speak for Trixta, but one reason is that you throw on the watch, roll up your sleaves and off you go. Not so much with the UFOII

You can use the chest antenna and perform in short sleeves and a pair of shorts.

Doug, to each his own. I can only tell you that I get far more compliments on my Gentleman's Child's Play than I do on my Breitling. And that's saying something.


Alright, Gabe. I'll do you a favor and take the Brietling off your hands. You've got my address.

Sure, Mike. But keep in mind- my Breitling can't detect ma@#*ts.

UFO3 is surprisingly less of a sticker shock than the UFO2 but the UFO2 came with a LOT more accessories.

Thank you mystification for the kind words. FYI for those of you who may have ordered the dress model from Hocus Pocus his shipment was shipped.

I just never like the feeling of having a hook up I have tried many and just never feel free, in my view a watch allows you to still feel free but having an electrical assistant, this is just my honest view, the UFO is amazing and wel worth buying, we cant all be the same can we now!

I would definitely agree with you there Trixta. I only wish that all these mag(ic) detectors were a lot more sensitive as opposed to having to use a relatively big piece of mag(ic) for it to work with in the hands material.

Actually if used properly the CPIII is sensitive to hand use. That is providing you are not trying to go through the top bony part of the hand. That is just too much bone to penetrate. If you are using the closed finger area there is not a problem. You can usually get between 3-4 inches. The presentation is everything. There are so many subtle ways to get a read from the hand. The spectator will not even be aware that you did it.
