Please read and watch the instructions again... you can wear it as your "normal" and daily watch... you just have to do something to get it ready for a performance... and it is easy. Jan

Dooblehorn, Just go to a jeweler. I did. Honestly, the band is not great on the watch so I went out to replace it, pretty much immediately. They have tons of options at a local jeweler from $15 to $150. If there is not one close to you, go to a flea market. If that doesn't help, I believe if you just measure the width of the band at the top (where it connects to the watch), you can find replacements online.

Yours in Magic!

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...



Any updated reviews or feedback?


luckily I have been able to fix both flaws, and now everything is fine.

I don't know if others will like this routine, however it goes over very well and works for me.
I have a small pencil in my pocket along with the remote and a pad. When I'm told the special time by the spectator I go into my pocket, set the remote then write the chosen time on the pad making it fairly obvious that I'm doing this. The watch in the meantime is face down and a distance away. I don't call attention to it and it isn't noticed. I take the pad out from my pocket with the time they selected written on it. After they call me out on this I direct them to the watch and ask them to turn it over and look at the time. I explain that I knew what time they would select and set the watch to that time hours ago.
Doing the bit with the pad gives me an excuse to go to my pocket to set the remote.

I received the Hocus-Pocus Daily Deal email too. When I went to the site, only the Chrome Classic was on sale for $225. The other two models were available at regular price ($450), NOT on sale.

Happily, the Chrome Classic is the one I wanted anyway. Smile Besides, the band can be replaced with a leather band if I want.

Mine won’t calibrate. I tried 9010 and followed all the steps. Still not working. I even tried all the calibration steps a few times. Not even close. Thoughts?

Is this what happens when the Turner watch is performed on TV?

That might happen because of the faraday cage effect: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faraday_cage

It is a issue that we solved with my watch due to a custom made lid that allows the radio waves to pass thru a small and invisible gap at the side.

One should be aware that the exact same thing can happen with "The Watch" as well. Hence a good lesson learnt is, continue your talk/patter for at least 10 seconds from the time the signal has been sent to your 'Turner'/'The Watch'.
