There have now been dozens of watches tricks sold... I own a few. Which one do you feel is the best device that you can wear and why?

I own the sykys watch and I wear it all the time as I relly like the look of it. I don't use it to often, only when I'm in a bind. Sometimes I'll use it at a resteraunt to do a book test with the menu, and I'll use it the odd time in my shows, but other than that I just really enjoy the look of it and it's there just in case.

I also own the time machine in which I must say has been useless as I found that it never worked right. (it dosen't move as tho it's suppost to)

I must mention that the one thing I like about the sykys is that the spectator can do the work and is comepletley hands on for them.

Banachek's Psychokinetic Time would be my favourite watch efect to perform, with a little bit of suggestion it can be an impromtu miracle . I don't no how I forgot to put that one in the last post.

Best: Psychokinetic Time - Banachehek. IMO one of the best watch effects that has come on to the seen. You can do it anytime and anywere, you don't need any special props,Its done with the spectators watch, compleatly improptu, and the price for all this is insanely low. Smile

Worst: Perfict Time - Collectors Worksdhop.This thing was broken within 3 days of me using it. Not only was the watch very tricky to work with, but you also needed a special something to do the effect and to set the watch to the corect time. I can not realy give a fair review of the watch because I bought it in 1997, and the ownership of the company has sience changed hands. But at the time the service was a sham.Smile

I also own Time Machine. Good watch, works ever time,don't need anything extra,IMO a fast cycle time. all in all a good tool.

The best watch for 'tricks' must be the lovely Gerlitz Watch...

A beautiful watch.

Hi, I have been using the new Perfect Time CV from Viking Workshop for about a year now and I must say I am very pleased with the Watch and the Company, nothing extra is needed with the new model (or twisting and tilting) and for me it has been very reliable. Paul

Hello PWRIS:

I bought my watch about 12 years ago. I guese that over time the watch had to improve. the one I have is a piece of junk. At the time the service was the worst.

But I am happy to hear that you are getting along well with you'rs.

By the way I live in Karlsruhe. Just down the street.

Hey Daylite,

I must of got the bad one of the bunch. (time machine). For mine you have to hold it at an obvious angle to get it startd and then to get it to stop it is nearly imposibal. maybe I'll re-considor it in the near future.

Best watch "TRICK"? My vote goes to Osterlind's Watch Routine.

Best device you can wear will be something like a Rolex.

Then you can use the watches of your spectators to perform Nicholas Einhorn's rather fantastic 'Watch Match effect.

Banachek's Psychokinetic Time, can do it any time with no setup. Very powerful effect. Have lots of other watch effects that I have picked up over the years but
this gets my strongest vote.

Honestly I think Osterlind has a pretty nice routine on one of his Dvd series Mind Mysteries.

Osterlind's watch routine is amazing. And I've also gotten a lot out of my Childs Play Dress Model in combination with The Relic.

Kevinr, are you asking about watch tricks, or trick watches? There's a big difference. If you're asking about trick watches, to my knowledge the best for the money that is currently available is SYKYS. If you're asking about watch tricks, those named above are among the very best of the very best.
