Phoenix Watch

A gorgeous skeletal style pocket watch is displayed; unfortunately all the parts are loose and rattling around inside the watch. The watch is wrapped in a velvet cloth and a watch chain is attached to the bow of the watch as it extends through a hole in the cloth. A spectator is asked to hold the chain while it’s connected to the watch. The magician does his magic and when the watch is unwrapped it is found to be restored and running.

Levitron – Original!

An original Levitron circa 1990’s. Complete with everything as new. And as a bonus there is also the Levitron Starter.
