Phoenix Watch by Collectors’ Workshop(c. 1992) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
Still one of my very favorite items from Collectors’ Workshop. This is the original version which is slightly larger than the current version. The transformation of a watch that “needs assembly” to a fully functioning watch seemingly right under their eyes is a joy to behold!
Effect: A very special effect for closeup and table workers. Performer exhibits a see-thru glass pocket watch containing random gears and parts. “What a deal!” he exclaims, “I got it cheap but it came with a little slip — “Some Assembly Required.”
So saying, the performer wraps the watch in a velvet-like drape, keeping the curved bow in view and attaching a chain. The watch is then handed to a spectator. With a few carefully chosen incantations, the drape is removed. The watch, and all its components, has been fully assembled and is functioning perfectly.
Approx. Price: $289.00 (2001) ***
