"Timeless" is one of Vanishing Inc.'s earliest hit tricks, and not a week goes by that someone, somewhere, doesn't ask us to re-release it. And for good reason: "Timeless" combined one of the strongest, simplest mentalism effects with something completely new and unexpected. "Timeless" was, quite simply, unforgettable. We're delighted to present "Timeless Deluxe," which is the new and much-improved "Timeless" package mentalists have been dreaming of for almost a decade. You'll find a slick, elegant, new watch and band design that makes the whole trick more powerful. "Timeless Deluxe" is available in two styles: Black on White (black band with white watchface), and Patriot (red, white and blue striped).
Effect: The performer speaks about implanting memories, or causing someone to see something that isn't actually there. To demonstrate, the performer removes their watch and asks a participant to twist the knob to move the hands around randomly. The performer's head is turned away the entire time. When the participant is happy, she looks at the watch and remembers the random time she stopped at. Then she holds the performer's watch between her palms. Even from a great distance across the stage, the performer divines the exact time the participant chose. But here's where it gets next-level impossible. To emphasize the idea that the participant didn't actually see anything, the performer asks her to look again at the watch she holds. The hands on the watch are gone.
Here's why "Timeless Deluxe" is fooling everyone. Immediately afterward the watch is completely examinable. In fact, a watch with no hands is a such an odd, striking prop that we encourage you to pass it around when you're done. The effect resets quickly, and requires no palming or practice. You'll be able to do "Timeless Deluxe" instantly after learning the method.
"Timeless Deluxe" builds on one of the great mind reading effects ever: divining a chosen time. But to make the watch hands vanish? Now we're in miracle territory. This effect is great not only live onstage, but also in impromptu situations or for television or social media magic: it's quick, impossible, and most importantly, it's a rare visual for mentalism.
Included in the "Timeless Deluxe" package are the brand new watch and band design, video instruction, and the secret gimmick that takes care of everything for you. No electronics whatsoever, and absolutely nothing about this unit can ever break.
Note: You cannot use "Timeless Deluxe" as your everyday watch; it will not keep time.
Frequently Asked Questions
How difficult is it to do?
It is unbelievably easy. In fact, it's almost self-working. There is no palming and there are no gimmicks which you need to add in or take away.
Can the effect be repeated?
Absolutely! The effect can be repeated after a quick 20 second reset. It can be a different time with each performance.
What is the difference between the watch styles?
Both watches work in the same way so you just choose the style that suits you best. The black imitation leather band is perfect for formal environments, whereas the Patriot band is ideal for informal settings.
I already own the original Timeless. Is it worth me picking up this version?
Yes! You'll already be familiar with the method but the watch you receive with Timeless Deluxe is far superior. The face is larger which means the reveal is clearer. The watches are better quality and look much nicer. You also have a choice of style too.
