Is there a Facebook group.
"The New York Papers," Mark Twain once said,"have long known that no large question is ever really settled until I have been consulted; it is the way they feel about it, and they show it by always sending to me when they get uneasy. "

Hi Steven,

There is a private group about ALL my creations, including the Watch.

We will be releasing at least more 4 effects until the end of the year and you can share ideas about all my magic and get a sneak peek of upcoming releases here:

Unfortunately, Joao Miranda could not answer my request until yet.
The cover of my the watch is so loose that the cover almost falls out alone. in the beginning it was a bit better together, but with the fingernails I could open the lid quite easily. Lately I put the clock on the table and when I took the clock again fell the lid and battery out ...this was a little shocking for me. For example the infinity watch has a metal screw lid and that is very good!

The second problem concerns the remote control. There is a hot splice in the remote control broken so you could not press the buttons because the board was loose and gave way...

This has been my edc for just over a week now and I love it. The remote buzzing isn't something anyone has noticed in a real world performing enviroment so I have no issue there. Ive changed the strap to make it look like a sleek minimalist watch which fits me perfectly.

But out with that its pretty close to perfect for me

I can see this being on my wrist for a long time to come.

Alan, would you mind sharing your technique to go from a regular watch to performance watch and back again?

I take off the watch and pretend to set a time, I place it face down in their hand and I place my hand just above it as I say "can you place your other hand on top please" pk ring activates the watch from a good 3 to 4 inches away.

I then do what ever routine I'm going to do and at the end I just input the real time with 8000 after it to set it back to normal mode. This happens as I take the watch back and pretend to reset it with the crown.

Hey Joao, what's the reason of having the watch being activated before performing? I imagine battery saving, but any strictly performing-related ones? Fear of butt-dialing?
Honestly curious.
I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death my right to say "scr*w you" if you persist. [Voltaire Smile]

I also would like to find out what is going on. I had a different experience. The Watch (the one I bought from a fellow member here at the Café) was high quality. I did notice a scratch on the remote, but the remote works beautifully. It came that way from the maker since the box was sealed and never opened. Plus, I also know it was brand new since it came directly with an invoice and box from Murphy's. I didn't care about the scratch on the remote, because the most important thing is that the remote worked perfectly. The Watch worked perfectly and does not have a scratch.

Hello, anyone having an issue with the watch losing time / not calibrated anymore after a charge?
After taking my watch off charge, turning it on and syncing ... I press 12:00 and it goes to 5:20.
If I put in say 01:32 ... it goes to 6:53.

Hi Jason,

You probably pressed the code 9010 by mistake, which as the calibration video states, is the code that allows you to save a new time.

Either that or you removed the battery while the watch was working in normal watch mode.

Anyway no worries.


In order to calibrate the watch please follow this instructions:

1. Confirm the exact time on the watch. Example: 5.32h
2. Insert the calibration code: 9010
3. Now place the actual hour code. In our example will be 0532.
4. Now input the 12 hours and check if both hands are aligned at the 12:00 (code 1200)
5. If both hands are not aligned at the 12:00 h you will need to move the minutes and hours hand to either the left (counter clockwise) or to the right (clockwise direction) using the following codes:

Minutes hand clockwise direction: 9030
Minutes hand counter clockwise direction: 9031
Hours hand clockwise direction: 9020
Hours hand counter clockwise direction: 9021


Once the hands are roughly aligned at the 12:00 input any hour of your choice and now the watch will go to the hour you just inserted.


Hope this helps Smile


Thank you,

Joao

Joao, That did it! Perfect and thanks.
I’ll take a screenshot of this so I can refer to it easily.
I believe I removed the battery while it was in normal Watch mode.

Joao, is there by chance a 're-set' code or what would the best numbers to use to just 'start all over again' if you feel you've hit the wrong number? Example: this weekend I put in a time (06:38) but noticed before hitting the 3rd number that I hit the 9 and not the 6. What would you recommend to quickly get the watch to an 'idle/done/ready' time frame so you could stall and re-input the correct time?
Jason

Anybody had a problem with one of the battery wires breaking from its tiny plug? Fitting battery is a bit too fiddly a bit of a design flaw I think.

I also had serious trouble with a watch back - would NOT stay closed. Joao sent me a new one and that completely solved the problem. Superb customer service!

Well I did email them about it I've only uses it about 4 times. They directed me to their accessories page where you can buy a new battery for around £37. Perhaps it was me being clumsy fitting it but I don't fancy forking out 37 quid every few months. If it breaks again while trying to fit battery back.
