Are these watches actually allowed? This thread seems to imply that there's no general consensus. What would happen if a proctor sees you with it and thinks (or it actually) isn't allowed? Would they make you turn your test in and report you? I could see proctors seeing this as a cheating tool, but it's awesome if it's allowed.

I still think any person attempting LSAT should be able to add 35 to a number between 0-59 and act accordingly. But to each his own!

Why do mental math during a time constrained test when you have so many other things to worry about? Makes zero sense if it's avoidable.

This seems like a nice tool but honestly, I've used a large men's watch that has 1, 2, 3 labeled and I've been completely fine each time as I would set it to 12:00 and then let it go to 12:35 and at the end of the section, re-set to 12. Always had time to re-set while the proctors read directions for 30 seconds.

i'm glad this got re-re-revived because i got mine about 3 weeks ago and i LOVE it! especially since it's so quick to look down and know where you are in relation to the time break down. for example, i'm starting RC passage 3 but i'm still in the second color, GREAT! that smiling face keeps me going... :lol:

I am able to mow my own lawn but I still prefer paying the 13-year-old kid down the street to do it for me.

Hi I sell the watches, so to answer the question on time for mailing:
I was getting married in August and moving from Massachusetts to Florida to start school, so it was taking about 3 weeks back then. But now I send out watches within 1-2 days of the order being placed and I just got another 100 casio watches in anticipation of the Oct LSAT rush.

PLEASE note that about a week and a half before the LSAT a ton of procrastinators tend to order and then I cannot keep up with the orders, so in anticipation on that final week I will shut down the shopping cart on my website each day after about 5 watches are sold because 5 is the max I can do per day while I'm in school. I mailed out 8 yesterday, another 11 today and am mailing about another 12 on Monday -- but I haven't finished me R&W paper which is due tomorrow at 4 and I realized I just can't be doing that. So PLEASE don't wait until the last minute if you want one because my priority has to be school if the orders get overwhelming at crunch time.

Good luck everybody!!!
PS I still have some unused PTs I'm giving away if anyone wants to pay for the shipping. Just email me at
claudetteswatches @ g mail . com

Can anyone confirm that there is no problem with having one of these on test day??

EDIT: just saw above post, so I guess at least one person has used it without a problem from proctors. Anyone else? There doesn't seem to be anything that would prohibit using it, but was just curious.

intrigued by the watch.. has anyone had any issues w/ this watch while taking the official LSAT? any misconduct flags?

also, does the second-hand reset automatically when the watch is reset to 35?

Hi! No, the watch does not automatically reset to the 35...it is a regular analog watch. That would be a chronograph type feature, and those watches are like $100. (If you go with a chronograph, do not get the type that has extra hands on it in mini sub clocks. Those are not allowed)

The watch is very easy to set though, the crown moves very easily.


No one can confirm that you will not have a problem with a particular item on test day. I did get confirmation from LSAC via email (which I posted in June in this thread) that the 3 features I chose to make on these watches were ok, namely the changing the numbering, and the removing the hour hand, as well as having pictures or graphics like the smiley) however they do not do "approvals" of items so you do run some paranoid-proctor risk. Sorry, that's life! I sold over 100 of them for the June LSAT and no proctor issues reported yet, so I guess that's a good thing but hardly representative considering 100K people take the LSAT each year.

I used a blue highlighter to make un-erasable mockups of my games on my test which I could erase pencil marks from for each question, but if my proctor wanted to she could have considered it a "marker" and taken it away because it wasn't yellow. It was a risk I was willing to take.

I love my watches!! They are so fun to make and I get happy when they make people happy, this is WAY more fun than reading for Contracts or Crim Law tonight.... Anyway, I digress. Also I do have a return policy for people who want to try it and see if they like it and so far have only had 1 returned where the person just said it just wasn't right for them and they'd rather save the money, which I totally respect.

Does anybody think this would be useful: What if I took a video of one of my watches running from 35 to 0 and put it on youtube so you could practice with it first? I wonder how hard that would be. I tried it once with my camera but the camera shut off after five minutes, almost like it knew no one was jiggling it and so it shut down??

I've been using this watch to take my PT's and have been very satisfied. I don't have any problems at all resetting it to 35 minutes within the limited time available between sections (I use the LSAT proctor/cacophony app when I take my PT's).

UPDATED 9/28: Please disregard this post, I thought the test was the 2nd not the 9th. There's still plenty of time without overnighting it.
