I'm really not sure why the Turner watch is on here?......myself and many others have had rediculous amounts of issues with the watch, many people including myself have found the battery has died within weeks of buying the unit, and have had to have it replaced. Many have found the unit to be faulty and have had to ask for a replacement, there have been constant issues with the app not working and having to wait for updates to solve fundamental issues. And the customer service is basically non existant?. Plus we as purchasers were told the watch would be kept hidden from plain site and the next minute were seeing people like Chris Ramsey reviewing the watch with links below there video so hundreds of thousands of people can buy a 'time traveling watch'

As a person that rarely buys anything over £80 to have this level of issues with a product costing over £300 is rather annoying.

Yes the watch does some clever stuff but at that level of cost id expect much higher levels of customer service and quality control? the watch strap was cheap as chips and why would anyone put an ultra cheap battery into a product that needs something crazy powerful?.....

and on that note is worth noting that my watch has failed recently after only a few weeks and I'm hoping another battery replacement will do the trick otherwise ill have to attempt to contact the makers to get a replacement.....which will be painful I'm sure


I must agree with you on many of the things you said.

The POTENTIAL of this watch is/was enormous. But are we voting on potential or what we received?

I don't hate my T watch (as its generally well executed) and fairly priced, but not sure I trust it ENOUGH (yet) to use it on stage for 500 people just yet. And as a result I did not put it into my top 3.


If you don't trust your t-watch, you either aren't using it enough or aren't using it correctly. I perform with it every single day, multiple times a day, and I never have a problem. It is, hands down, the best money I have spent on a magic prop in at least the last five years. I understand everyone is entitled to their opinion, and that's fair, but if people are voting for it, there's got to be a reason why, and that first guy jumping in here complaining about it just makes him look like a troll.


Also not everyone is using for stage with 500 people

I don’t think it was ever advertised for that I use in mix and mingle and has worked fine since day one

My apologies for taking longer than hoped to complete the tally here. Wow, it has been an adventure getting this all wrapped up. Counting, recounting, eliminating the people who didn’t bother reading the rules, conspiracy theories, and even hijacking of threads. Some people overlooked that this is meant to be a fun, friendly competition.

In particular, the Trick of the Year was a neck and neck race which came right down to the wire; ending in a TIE!

So here you have the OFFICIAL Houdin results:

Tied for first:
DFB by Einhorn and Squires
T-Watch by Nobody Knows

Rounding out the podium in third place:
Flux by PM

And because they were in such a tight race...

Another tie is found for fourth place:
Brass Coin Casket by Airship Magic
Blink by Looch

Right behind that another tie for sixth:
SvenPad Ultimate by Brett Barry
Destiny Deck by David Gonzalez
It’s In My Genes by Michel

It really was a year of many innovations and wonderful creations which we all should celebrate.

And let’s not forget the Thurston! This year’s winner is Vanishing Inc.

2018 Thurston results:
1. The crew at Vanishing Inc.
2. Craig Filicetti at PM
3. Mark Traversoni at Saturn Magic

And tied for Fourth place:
Sudo Nimh
Penguin Magic
Marc Kerstein

These are the 2018 top of customer service as voted by you members on The Café.

Good to see this back on track. Thanks Tom and congrats to both DFB by Nick Einhorn and Squires and the guys from T-Watch & Nobody Knows, two fantastic ideas brought to fruition by their creators.
But boy, the 2018 Thurston's, all those mentioned are fabulous, truly outstanding and all deserve congrats.

Congratulations to the winners in both categories - and to the others who were also nominated. An extra big "Thank-you" to those who nominated me, and also, to Tom Cutts for organizing it all.

Well deserved:
I never was a big fan of iPhone Magic - the DFB App changed that
I never was a big fan of "watch" magic - the T-Watch changed that

DFB is awesome. It really deserved to win. Maybe someday it might become totally hands off too Smile
