Is anyone here from the "300" from Europe who already got the watch? I'm here in the dark. I know there were problems with the customs, but should not the watches be sent seperate? What has become of it? In Blackpool, the watches are probably also presented. *hmmm* Actually I thought we - the "financiers" get the watch in early February...


I have ordered 2 watches, but now I am a bit concerned. How is the Status about shipping the watches seperate to Europe and then the Refills?
And no answer yet from "Sansminds"... :-( I know, they are busy, but I think we deserve some information...

Hi Tom

Currently, most of the Europe packages are returned back to our package forwarder.

We actually have 3 situations right now.

1) Custom paperwork was sent in advance (while the physical items are pending to ship) for clearance but the paperwork was rejected
2) Everything all arrived at the destination country but the customs reject the entire package and return back to us
3) Some we were able to have our customs broker to physically present the item to customs for clearance. That is why some people received the item without the refill but the watch made it.


The last situation is a 50% chance as we do not get to choose if we can present the item with our customs broker. Some customs just return the package right away.

Right now our solution is to ship the package out with only the watch and ship the refill after. This guarantees the watch to arrive for sure.

The issue is now we are very limited with stock. Our backup units are not enough to cover all the Europe and Asia customers. We need to wait until the return packages to arrive back to the package forwarder, QC them again to make sure no damages, then ship out to the customers again. This process is taking a lot longer than we expected. We really appreciate everyone's patience while we sort out this mess.

Thanks to everyone for the support during this campaign. If anyone has questions regarding their order feel free to reach out to me. My email is in the previous post.

Hello Rich!

Thanks for the detailed report. It is regrettable to hear that you have such problems.
Something frightening for me, since I am one of the "300" and now I'm afraid not to get my watch or very late.
Well, better late than never.

But you certainly have a system. This all would have to be seen by the tracking numbers, what was assigned
and what is not, or where the package is located. Or?

I would be glad if I had such a number, so I could understand all this better and track my package.
Is there any chance to get my number?

Hopefully you will find a quick solution!

In the hope of getting my watches as soon as possible ...

Sincerely
Tom

Got mine yesterday. Great kit and instructional video. Explanations are clear and easy to follow. The watch seems very nice and I hope it holds up but only time will tell. Louder than I expected. Was playing with it in bed. Wife was watching tv and said "what is that sound." Surprising given that she always has the tv blaring. in any event, really excited to play with this one. What sucks is I just realized that I do most of my coin vanishes/false transfers left handed. So I'll have to wear my watch on my right hand which I absolutely hate. That said, the watch is designed to be worn on either wrist which was a nice feature they built in.

Hi Funboy247,

It's actually one refill pack. Each pack has 7 refills. Each refill has about 100 three second puffs. Also keep in mind the fluid required for the watch is zero residue so this liquid is of a very high quality. So one refill pack for $28.95 will give you 700 three second puffs. But you'll save money if you get the standard or collectors pack.

Everyone I know is going gaga over the watch but I'm just not sold. The size of the watch and style just doesn't suit me. Perhaps if I was 20 something again then I could pull this off. I know that people will say that the watch really doesn't get seen but I just wouldn't wear a watch that looks like it belongs on Ali G. I also have concerns in terms of quality and longevity. I note that some previous posts speak to customer service issues and that also makes me want to stay on the sidelines.

I actually felt this is one of the best watch design I've ever seen and worn . Pure perfection ~ I would even pay to get a fully functioning watch ( including the three dials ) that looks like the VAPR watch made if possible . It just fits beautifully on me .

Hello Magic Café and Vapr Watch fans,

We only have four days to make our crowd funding goal of 2000 watches. We are so close but we need your help to jump over the goal. We are at 67%. We can do this. Tell your friends. If we can push this over the top we will all get our watches by May 2017. That would be awesome. Also it will push Sansminds to make more amazing pro series magic in 2017.

Here's the link to current update. I know we can do this!! Now is the time to get your watch. I suggest the collectors set so you get the best value and free refill packs.

Maybe they can change the price back to the initial price - $175? I am not saying that the watch doesn‘t worth $250. I am just thinking that if they lower the price, people who are on the fence will jump in. Also, the ones who already own one might consider getting a backup. Just an idea. Again, I am not saying that it is not worth getting at its already low price.

Id buy it today for 175, but I have trust issues with sansmind... bad dealings in the past but I would be willing to risk it for 175.

Yeah, the project needs 600+ buyers in three days... I doubt it will be funded.

Here is a review I did that is a little bit more in-depth than the ones that have been made. I hope it makes anybody else on the fence make an informed decision. https://youtu.be/1YRDOMfX934

Thanks!

So orders in after the 300, are they filled or refunded if the goal is not reached to " fund "? I preferred a short time ago
and everything seemed to go thru with no problem. Just thought I'd ask.
