What the Ads Say: Divine Time is a reputation maker. Your audience will be stunned when you divine the time on a freely chosen watch from your personal collection! No pre-show, no fishing, no prompting...no way!
Analysis: This is a fine mentalism effect with a great theme thats easy to perform. Indeed, there is no pre-show work or fishing involved.
Without looking or seeing the watch, the performer correctly divines the time thats displayed on the watch. The watch may be closely examined at the end and theres nothing to find. In fact, the working watch may be given to the spectator (the manufacturer sells replacement watches).
The Time Warp
This one is easy to learn and perform and is practically all presentation. The DVD offers a performance by Palter as well as instructions, and you can learn the entire effect by reading the documentation.
This may be a personal thing, but I dislike having to rely on batteries that can run out at the wrong time. With a watch battery, theres simply no way to tell when its running low. Fortunately, even if a battery fails during a show, you can recover and you still have a routine. The effect does come with extra batteries, which is helpful.
In all, Divine Time is a good effect with an intriguing theme thats based on time. And that fascinating bag of watches is sure to command attention on stage.
