Hey gang,

First, this is not your everyday Café message from me.

Sure, its introducing a magic product. After all, we are a magic community. Smile

However, this is not just another card trick, coin trick, rope trick or some goofy way for you to levitate above the sidewalk.

This is something you can and will use and more importantly - something I personally believe in. Smile

You see, its creator Will Tsai is my friend. Actually, that is not quite accurate. He is more than a friend, I consider him part of my family. I trust him and I can't say that about too many people in or out of the magic world.

Over that last four plus years I have followed his journey in developing one of the most ingenious and sophisticated pieces of magical apparatuses I have ever seen.

This is the real deal - I can see James Bond using this and Q being quite jealous. Smile

When VAPR arrived on the scene it took the idea of using smoke in magic to a new level - That's a fact.

Well, this is VAPR on steroids and its just a beautiful thing.

For a t-shirt and jeans kind of guy like me it doesn't get any better. Smile

This is the VAPR Watch and I'm in love with it plain and simple.

I collect watches and can hardly believe that its everything I expect from one of my INVICTA'S, yet is a magicians secret weapon and for less money. As George would say; It's Bad to the Bone. Smile

I understand its technology and I also know the math and engineering that has went into this - Unbelievable is all I can really say.

I have no horse in this race. Will Tsai is NOT paying me a dime to promote this masterpiece. I'm doing this because I believe in it.

Great work Will - you did it kid and I'm proud of you. - Steve Brooks

Here's the skinny...

WHAT IS VAPR WATCH?

Created by master designer and the creator of Vapr, Will Tsai.

Vapr watch employs absolutely the highest technology ever made available in a magic product.

The first million dollar project in researching and developing a magic prop.

The first magic project made possible because of cross industry cooperation with multi-industry giants.

Vapr watch is made using the same high standards that are normally only seen in high-end watches costing thousands of dollars. Because we want EVERY magician to use it, we've decided to take the risk by keeping it affordable and making it available right above the actual production cost. For that reason, and for the very first time, we cannot afford to go through wholesale distribution so we need your help.

We have prepared 300 Vapr Watch units that are ready to go to our first 300 backers. So as you read, you might want to read fast. Smile

When we first hopped on the project, we weren’t expecting this to be a million dollar project. Over the course of 4 years, we’ve put everything we could afford into developing the technology required to make Vapr Watch happen. We already have the parts and everything is ready to go, but we were unfortunately forced to stop the production at the last assembling stage due to financial shortage. Creating a collectible Watch is a huge business, but magic is not; hence what it takes to produce collectible watches is something we never would have expected. We want to make this happen for you and we need your help to bring this into mass production.

GOAL

We need to collect the sales of 2000 units to push the production into the last assembling stage.

What you get for backing us:

  • Buy at lower rate ($249.95 USD instead of $300 USD)
  • Receive One additional part that will not be available in the mass production boxes, for FREE!
  • Not only would you get to be a part of history, you’d be the first to empower yourself with a fusion of elegance and amazement.

WHAT IF WE FAIL?

If our crowdfunding campaign fails and we don’t have enough funds at the end of the campaign, we will close the project and take the lost. No further purchases will be available.

We will still hand assemble the watches that were ordered and ensure they are delivered to our campaign supporters during the course of 2017 on a first come, first serve basis. It's because you chose to support us, and we can’t let you down. If you don’t want to wait, you can transfer the spot to a friend or get a full refund with no questions asked.

You will have a true unique item that will never be available on the market again.

Would you like to be the James Bond of magic and perform with style?

Join us and select your color and package. Let’s make history together. NOW.

CAMPAIGN CUT OFF DATE: FEB 15TH

(Note: If you are one of the first 300 backers, your watch is going out before mid January through UPS. It will come with signature confirmation, tracking and $1000 USD insurance. We will need a street address.)

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

  • How long does Vapr Watch last per FULL CHARGE? Average 116 puffs/triggers. Enough to last you a full day of performance.
  • Can I replace the battery on the time piece? Yes you can.
  • How many Vapr Watches can I sync w/ 1 Remote? No limit but you'll only need one.
  • How loud is the device? The device itself is completely silent.
  • How big does my wrist need to be to wear the watch? Each Watch is Fully customizable.
  • Does Vapr Watch have different sizes? One size.
  • Can I request a custom color? Not at this moment and if you could it would be REALLY expensive.
  • Can you adjust the time? Yes
  • How durable is Vapr Watch? We use it as our everyday watch.
  • Can I use other oils to refill Vapr Watch? You cannot. It requires a residue free ingredient to work with the watch otherwise the smoke will get thinner and thinner.
  • What comes in the box? Vapr, remote, arm band, USB charger and a wall adapter.
  • Is there a timer to activate the smoke? No, it’s remote controlled and you can do long trigger up to 60 seconds.
  • How much of the smoke can I inhale before I faint? Purposely Inhaling any smoke is probably not a good idea. Our smoke uses a toxic free ingredient.
  • Can I purchase a longer warranty? Yes you can and we’d advise that you do so.
  • Is it water proof? Because there’s a hole emitting smoke, you can’t water proof the hole. However, as long as you don’t swim or shower with it, it should be fine. We use as our everyday watch.

These guys are on fire! I don't even care about the smoke anymore. I'd pay the price just for the watch itself!

Looks awesome.

It says it includes a arm band in the box in Q&A section

Wondering what is that for if the device is triggered by remote?

$51 for shipping. Yikes. Those are Hocus Pocus-like shipping rates.

The $51 is because the package is being shipped via UPS with signature confirmation, tracking, and its insured for $1000. While it's definitely high, I feel like for what you're getting, I'd want to make sure it came here safely.

Wow... that last trailer blew me away. I've been hurt by too many smoke products in the past. I hope this one lives up to what it appears to be.

On the video Will says they will ship out before 2017 implying orders will ship out in the next few days. But the page text "you watch is going out before mid January" suggests that they will ship out after 2017?

I got part way through the checkout and then got hit with $140 dollars for shipping!!!

There is no way it costs this much to insure and ship to the UK by UPS or similar.

I was also concerned about only having a 3 month guarantee, what comes with 3 most of warranty these days, don't they think their product will last a year, if you want a year you have to pay an extra $100!

If they want nearly $500 for the watch why not just say so, I may just have ordered it right away, but virtually doubling the price during checkout is not on.

Thanks for all the love folks. It's been a crazy day. Will answer a few questions tomorrow when I have some down time.

Saturn UK, yes I agree with you. That is the exact reason we never stepped into retail model before from Canada. The price is quoted directly from UPS system here. The same package going your way and coming back to us will have quite a bit of price difference. But we decided to stick with UPS as it's the most reliable carrier here with signature, tracking, and $1000 insurance. Of course we could just sell the item for $500 and do free shipping; as the matter of fact from the cost and quality of the watch we were going to retail the watch for $1000. However we believe in the power of sharing resources and we want all the magicians to use it. We decided to go full retail and transfer the price difference to the customer end. So everyone could make their purchase at wholesale price and we'll let the product speak for itself. Customers are paying the carrier for the cost of item to deliver to their own location. Some are more costly, at the same time some are cheaper depending on how close they are located from our carrier. To protect customers' investments over valuable product, it makes sense to use secure and reliable carrier service. Just my two cents. Once again thank you for liking my work and considering to support the campaign.

You will find websites that offer UPS and DHL at large discounts I'm sure you must use them like we do, or if you ship enough you will be getting huge discounts off the normal shipping rates.

What about the warranty why only offer 3 months is the watch not durable, that was the main thing stopping me pushing the button.

We don't have resources like that in Canada. At least I never heard of private service like that. If you can hook us up, that'd be awesome!

3 month is a standard electronic coverage for manufacture defects. If after 12 weeks of use, it's already proven the electronic parts are working reliably. Any point beyond that, it doesn't cover daily usage damage. If you bump the watch, water damage, bad user habit.. etc. Those are not covered. Additional warranty is available for instant replacement. That means at anytime during the warranty duration your watch is not working (not water damage or crash), the $300 watch will be replaced with a brand new one. The same service is offered in laptop and mobile business model as an option. It could come in handy. I've had the chance to replace my phone in the past with similar warranty. Again not everyone needs it but it's nice to have an option and a peace of mind. Hope this answers your question.

Must be different in Canada mobiles have 12 months in the U.K as do all electrical I am aware of.

One website is called Parcel Monkey.

It works Canada to UK, they are showing $25 shipping by DHL but that does not include insurance, which is $10 for up to $500.

We don't do DHL at all. We've lost so many parcels through them in the past we can't even count. That's why we do UPS only for this item. But thanks for the info.

Oh well ... I can't take the temptation , I'm getting this at 140 shipping .

Will , what's the extra free part that's included in the early bird package ? And does the " we'll put in free stuff equivilant to the amount you ordered at " offer still count ?
