Customer reviews for Introduction to Watch Stealing


Laura Bautista

I just bought this video on the Black Friday promotion for 99 cents and what a blast! Anthony is a funny, talkative and didactic magician. This is just an approach to pickpocket and watch stealing and therefore, its mere 10 minutes will introduce the basic movements and techniques. Don't expect anything in depth, but it's certainly worth it.
You will need a "helping hand" to practice before taking it into your repertoire but once you master it, surprise is guaranteed



What a great introduction!



It's definitely an introduction; but contains all of the info needed to start with certain watches. A little less than 10 minutes and focused on watches with straps only. With most people wearing smart watches, it shouldn't be a problem as they are on rubber/silicon straps. However, no bracelets (ad copy does mentions this). I bought this on Black Friday for 0.99 and for that price, it's a steal (pun intended). But for the 12.95, there are better downloads from Vanishing Inc. Also, I planned on picking up the Wonderous World of Pickpocketing with this book, but that sold out. But this DL is a slightly more than a quarter of the cost of a dedicated introductory book on pickpocketing. Maybe they should have bundled both?

TLDR: A good introduction to practice with friends but with certain caveats.



Meh! I do a watch steal in my work, and this is not how you do it, lots of details are missing in this tutorial. For one , I have a problem of him ripping a watch a way after steal like that, for two not placing other hand on the wrist to continue the pressure is kind of way to mess it up.



I was hoping to see the techniques in real life action. The routine provided was weak, and the pulling and tugging of the arms doesn't seem like a convincing misdirection.
