People gasping! Jaws dropping! Everybody that witnesses The Watch Crystal by Eric Maurin wants one immediately! For a long time, that wasn't possible, but a special Magic Smith release puts the power of The Watch Crystal in the palm of your hand! It's a must have for any magician; baffle and entertain audiences in your closeup, parlor, or street shows with Eric Maurin's The Watch Crystal!
Time well spent! The Watch Crystal by Eric Maurin is a powerful, versatile classic, ripping thoughts from the spectator's mind and displaying them on an old glass crystal watch face, possibly all that remains of a wayfaring stranger or past relative.
A spectator is pulled from the audience and asked to think of a secret time; reality unravels only to weave a cloth of unbelievable magic! You blow on the crystal and a vaporous watch dial appears on the glass revealing the chosen hour! The misty apparition slowly fades, time disappears.
The beautifully crafted watch crystal comes with a velvet carrying bag and customized polishing cloth. The illustrated instructions are accompanied by an intriguing and timeless presentation.

This is a powerful effect which never fails to get an amazing reaction.
Because of the steps involved, the occasional spectator will end up on the wrong number. This has happened to me twice in the dozens of times I've performed this illusion.
The only complaint I would give is that I have had a few of these. This effect is SO good and SO amazing that I just can't give up on it. However, it seems to be a hit-or-miss with the props. I don't know if they aren't created well or if, over time or maybe with exposure to heat or cold or humidity or something, the agents that make the effect possible wear out. But I've gotten some of these that just aren't clear at all. You can only return them so many times. I've given one away and I have four left. Of the four I have, two are well-made and clear to the spectator when their time is revealed. The other two are basically useless.
To sum up: This is a MARVELOUS and POWERFUL effect. Absolutely amazing.
However, it has been my experience that it is either not consistently well-made or the effectiveness of the processing wears off in certain conditions or over time. And THAT makes the price for this item far too high. GREAT trick, poor value. – Robert Benedict
I am a little worried that the reviwers seem to think you have to give 5 stars to every trick as is the case in this column. That kind of attitude lessens the whole idea of the rewieving process.
The manufacturers of the Watch Crystal give excellent service - I got a response to an e-mail the next day ! - which they should get 5 stars for. But the the trick is too complicated with all the math involved in my opinion. Tricks should be simple and NOT PUT PRESSURE ON THE SPECTATOR. My experience is that tricks where the spectator just has to say "yes" or "no" are those that make the performer popular. (I have about 150 tricks which is enough for statistics)
I very much agree with the criticism that the force in Watch Crystal should be less complicated as somebody said in his review. So the trick does not deserve the 5 stars given, if the reviews are to be a real help when you choose items to buy.

I agree, was very easy to learn and props are top notch. This is a great trick. Someone should refine the force, but otherwise, one of my new favorites. Thanks for recomending this Aaron. – JackH
I like easy to master tricks that have high impact - - - and Watch Crystal is one of them. Within 30 minutes of opening this trick, I blew a spectator away with this fantastic effect. Easy to master and well worth the money. No sleight of hand, you can carry it with you, and it has very interesting patter with it as well. High quality and highly recommended.

A great prop! Fit perfectly in my show right after Haunted Deck! – Deets
I carry it everywhere!!! – Jason
The presentation and instructions leave a lot to the imagination, which is fine because I have a great imagination. Others might have difficulty pulling off a barebones trick. Yes, it has the possibility to be spooky and very emotional, but that's up to the performer. – L Cook
