I just set my minute hand to the :25 position and when they said go, pushed in the dial on the side and then the clock sorta counts down to the 12 o clock position. When the section was through, repeat. No reason to go out and buy another watch. Sorry to crap on your product.

Why this watch is useless:


1.) After your done with the LSAT this watch goes in the trash (17-20 dollars gone).

2.) You can't use it as a regular watch to tell time before or after the LSAT if you take public transportation to the exam to check the time (can't bring cell phones)

3.)With a regular 10 dollar analog watch or even a 30 dollar analog watch you can set it to 11:25 and when it hits 12:00 you will know the 35 minutes is up and you have a analog watch to keep (no money lost)

4.) If you are not happy with the 11:25 to 12:00 setup as this LSAT watch only offers, you could set it to 12:00 and when it hits 12:35 you will know the 35 minutes is up.

-These two different setups are available on a regular analog watch

This LSAT watch is a complete failure.

I guess the 17-20 dollars goes towards the coloring and smiley face... :lol:


On that note, I don't understand why people want watches.

1) Watches eventually break, and once they break, you have to throw them out (and you're out 30 or so dollars!)

2) Watches aren't made of stone

3) With a regular stone sun dial you can tell the time using the position of the sun! You know that it's noon when the shadow faces the same direction as the point (no money lost)

4) If you're unhappy with the way the sun dial points, you can just spin it around!!

-these two setups are available on a regular stone sun dial

A watch is a complete failure... I guess the money goes into those fancy bands used to hold em on your wrist.


The fact that after the LSAT is done you're out $20 is irrelevant. If you're honestly making ANY decisions about your LSAT prep based on this kind of money, you need to be reevaluating... If that $20 can even help an individual score one or two points higher, or give some peace of mind during the test, it very well could be worth much more...

And I agree, why all the antipathy towards someone and a product?

First, much thanks to those who have given kind and supportive words!!!

I debated whether I should respond to this "Perjury" person. So this is what I have to say.
At the end of the day, if you don't want something like this, you just don't buy it, right? And those folks who are like "Yeah, that would help me shave off 60 seconds and I'd like to have one and I'm not going to bother to do it myself!", well, then they can buy one.

And don't throw the watch away at the end!!!! What a terrible thing to do...instead give it to someone else or sell it. That's what I did with all my LSAT books -- gave them away!

And honestly, I'm not doing this to make money (I could have sold those LSAT books for more than I've made on these watches, and with a lot less work). I'm doing it 1.] as a hobby because it's fun...(I used to make greeting cards but after making like 50 for my family in December I had a greeting card breakdown!!) and 2.] to help others do their best (it was something I needed and couldn't find anywhere at an affordable price or custom to my needs), and 3.] because I like doing the custom stuff (I feel like a little graphic designer and test-at-your-best consultant, it feels great when someone is happy that you created what they imagined)!

(on a side note: I think not enough people ask for an encouraging picture on the side! Not even a picture of Ricky Martin or anything? I got a request the other day for a little bunny holding a pencil, it was SO much fun to make and was just adorable!!!)

And the argument that you can't use use this as a regular watch on test day is not true because it's a custom face with anything you want on it. I can put tick marks all the way around, or I can put smaller "hour" numbers, and I can leave the hour hand on and you can just move it out of the way during the test, I can even make it a left or right handed watch by placing the face on 180 degrees off, for those left-handed people who feel left out of so many products in the world!
AND, if someone wanted to have it as a regular watch afterwards, I could even attach the custom watchface using double stick tape instead of permanent adhesive so they could open it and remove it when they were done! AND if someone thinks a $10 watch is not fancy enough for them, I'll mail them a printout of their watch face for free so they can do their own surgery and have fun making their own watch.

So all your arguments fall flat, perjury person.

Your lying and you are most of the people defending your watch. Same person, different ID. Clever but not clever enough.

I'm somewhat certain that I'm not the same person as eupelia. Seriously, dude, what's with the hatred?

Granted, this forum should not be used to advertise products, but seeing as others advertise their ebay auctions of old prep books, eupelia is clearly not alone in this.

I really don't understand why this bothers you so much. It's a clever idea and I think you're just jealous you didn't come up with it first because you're missing out on some cash.

I bought one of these watches and I used it during a timed exam. I think it helped me out a lot. I could clearly see where I was without having the second or hour hand in my way and I didn't have to worry about setting it back to EXACTLY where I wanted it because there is a stop foot. For me, it was worth the $20 bucks for the peace of mind alone. Not to mention you get a really cool product that someone really enjoyed making.

If you don't want one of them, don't buy one. But the fact that you keep coming back and posting shows you're obsessed. Seriously, get off her back or don't comment at all.

3.)With a regular 10 dollar analog watch or even a 30 dollar analog watch you can set it to 11:25 and when it hits 12:00 you will know the 35 minutes is up and you have a analog watch to keep (no money lost)


The problem I have with my regular analog watch is that I can set the minute hand to :25 or :35 no problem. But the second hand is always in a random spot, and I can't adjust that. So as I'm winding down it is off by a number of seconds. I think having it accurate to the second is worth it to me. So I plan on buying one.

Mischa! how are you!!!! I forwarded your email to my MOM -- she was so proud and she said it was very thoughtful of you to take the time to write that! I agree with her :) Your email really made my week!!!! Big hugs from Boston.

P.S. if you want your Chuck Norris picture on your watch, send it back to me and I'll change it for free for you!! hehehehe I'm sure you've seen this list, --LinkRemoved--!!! but some that literally almost made me fall off my stability ball at work as I read over them again just now:

  • There is no chin behind Chuck Norris' beard. There is only another fist.
  • In fine print on the last page of the Guinness Book of World Records it notes that all world records are held by Chuck Norris, and those listed in the book are simply the closest anyone else has ever gotten.
  • Chuck Norris has already been to Mars; that's why there are no signs of life there.
  • Chuck Norris' tears cure cancer. Too bad he has never cried.

PLEASE NOTE I STILL HAVE THE FOLLOWING BOOKS WHICH I AM GIVING AWAY, so if you buy a watch and you need one of these, please let me know so I can add it to your order. Shipping for the books adds $7, for the test booklet, one probably doesn't add anything at all to the shipping cost.

[list=][*]Kaplan 2005 LSAT lesson book (although some of the stuff doesn't make sense without the professor, there are a lot of sample questions with explanations in each section which are useful.
[*]LSAC Preptest booklets, unused, PTs 54, 53, 56, 58[/list]
[*]10 Actual LSAT Preptests (I think it includes tests like 7-18) Good for pacing practice where you try to do just one section in 8:45

The stop foot will "stop" the hand from going back any further then where it is set. This enables you to rewind the hand back to :25 after each section without looking down, and is more precise.

I'm still secretly mortified I'll get a misconduct flag if I try and take this into the June LSAT. Can anyone cool my nerves? Has anyone sent the actual image to LSAC and been told it was ok? The description questions seem vague.

It would probably easier to arrange if you're getting a watch anyway than if I'm posting randomly on a board and people are thinking I'm trying to scam them by offering up free books.


So I'd like to order one of your watches, and the 2009 Kaplan Pacing practice might be interesting if you still have it. How much writing is in the book? Are all the exercises completed? (Don't want to sound ungrateful! It just isn't worth your time shipping it to me if I can't do the exercises :))

If I ordered these from you today, how long would it take for you to ship? Ideally I would like to begin studying with this watch by next weekend.

I bought one of the watches a few months ago, and they're great! She provides great communication via emails for the specifics you want on your watch. She also sent me a nice little card along with the watch :)
