Gregory actually does this in his video, the guy catches him and he just plays it off saying "Well actually I was trying to steal your watch, but since I couldn't.." and moves on to another effect. He later steals the guys watch multiple times, which tells me it's pretty imperceptible.

In "The Watch Steal Video" they recommend practicing the technique using a mostly used paper towel roll. If you leave about a centimeter of paper towel wrapped around the roll it will be about the right size as a wrist. Put a watch on it and hold it in your left hand while you practice stealing the watch with your right (or vice versa). I think they had some technique where you could prop it up somehow but it's been quite a while since I watched it. At any rate, something like that should get you most of the way there.


Ahhhhh! Now the light begins to come on! Thank-you!

I remembered the name of the video I was referring to. It was 'The Watch Steal Video" by Chappy Brazil and Charles Bach. My recollection is that is was quite good, though it's a little old now. I had it on VHS but it's available on DVD (on Penguin, for example).

Try the Watch Steal on your friends and family first who know you're a magician. Since they don't exactly know where you're going with it, you can say "I need your wrist for my next trick so just take off this watch" Smile
