Spectator freely selects a playing card and signs name across the face of it. The magician then completely unzips a “zippered” purse, closes it back up, and places the empty purse on the table. Magician explains that the idea is to get the selected card into the purse in record time. He pulls out his pocket watch at the end of a chain, snaps it open, and shows the ticking watch to the spectators saying that it will only take seconds to perform. The watch it returned to his pocket with the chain still hanging out. The card is then returned to the deck, shuffled and lost. The spectator is asked to open the zippered purse. Inside the purse is not the selected card but the insides of a pocket watch! Magician states that looks like the inside of his pocket watch. The magician removes the pocket watch from his pocket, opens it and there is a folded card inside the pocket watch where the watch works used to be. This folded card is tipped out, unfolded, and seen to be the signed selection. MARKED COIN TO POCKET WATCH-This effect can also be performed with a marked half dollar as well and comes with Scotty’s routine for performing this effect with the half dollar as well.
