Has anyone bought lsat watch?

Postby hbn » Sun Nov 24, 2013 12:45 am

I've ordered my lsat watch from this website. http://lsatwatch.webs.com/. But haven't received it or got a confirm email yet. I'm an international student preparing for LSAT, and I asked my friend in the US to help me buy 2 LSAT study books and the watch. The books have arrived for a few days, not sure if everything is OK about the watch. Has anybody ever ordered the watch and how long it takes for shipping?Or maybe the website is a scam since I saw many people complain about the same experience as mine.Hopefully not, but now I'm really worried. :cry:

I bought it and had to open a dispute with PayPal. I ordered mine last week with overnight shipping. Never received it. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

I ordered mine and got it fine. The time being split and colored in four sections saved me a lot of time because I'm a compulsive time checker and it was easier to see how I was doing when there are lines and colors for me haha.

I think the reason you didn't receive yours right away is because the maker requires I think 1(?) week to make the product since she modifies a watch by hand. And then she ships the watch, which would have been overnight for you.

Still seems weird. I've sent multiple emails and I have gotten no response. I purchased last Saturday.

I purchased one from that site before October and it was kind of a bitch. Opted for overnight shipping and didn't get it till literally the last week (must have ordered 2-3 weeks before the administration). I emailed her countless times and it took her forever to respond. In my state of panic I ordered some other shitty watch off amazon that had received nothing but bad reviews. I think she's either still in law school or working.


As for the watch itself, I didn't care for it. I didn't like how the second hand was removed from the watch because some sections I'm literally working on that last problem until it's about to hit the 12. I ended up actually ditching it in favor of my regular casio (which just so happens to be the same watch she uses to make her custom watches) after the 2nd section in October. Maybe this was because I was so accustomed to using a regular watch, or maybe you really don't need such a thing. I kinda just bought it because I saw everyone else in the October study thread buying 180 watches.

I really wanted one for the December test but I emailed in early October and got no reply. I e-mailed again at the end of October and got a reply two weeks later but I had already purchased another lsat watch.

She finally Msged me back saying shed process a refund. It would prob have taken another week to receive.

Just use a regular watch. Set it to 12 o'clock and when it hits 12:35 you know your times up. It's more reliable and you can actually start practice using it now.

If it helps, I ordered from "LSAT Timer" (The other one thats not the 180watch) and received mine within a week. There are less options in terms of background so he makes them in bulk and sends it out when you order it. I would recommend, I ordered mid week and had mine the next monday. I wanted 180 watch but they were sold out :(

I ordered one of these and it took close to 6 weeks to arrive. Emails were ignored. Just terrible. I lost it pretty quickly and ended up using a $9 watch from Amazon.

After hearing all these stories, I'm pretty mad that I actually ordered from this place.

They seem to come most highly recommended, but they've been sold out for a while.

Well, shoot. Seems weird that they'd be sold out. I remember reading that a few months ago, you'd figure the supplier would figure it out how to meet demand.


Yeah, based on logic and experience you'd think the supplier would have figured out the supply/demand cycle revolves around administration dates by now, but complaints like those in this thread have been common every single test administration since the person started offering these watches for sale many many administrations ago. The persons long term track record shows that (s)he doesn't put much of a priority on timeliness and responding to customers, she flakes like this and leaves students hanging every administration leading up to test day. If you search old threads you'll find many similar complaints from the past.

I bought one a few months ago and it's been broken for a week. Randomly stopped working and the timing is all f'ed up.

Emailed but no reply.

Anyone suggest a good regular analog watch from amazon or somewhere common and can ship fast?(Taking dec 7)

Finally I received the watch. It took about 7 weeks to the U.S address, then my friend sent it to me. The international mailing took another 2 weeks. Fortunately,I like it. So if you want to buy one,please make sure order in advance.

An lsat watch?! WTF

People will literally buy any old shit.

I just went to the dollar store and bought a shitty analog alarm clock an reset it to midday after every section.

Worked a treat although I think the ticking was distracting my neighbors.

While I was practicing for the LSAT, I started taking the tests without a watch. I set a timer across the room that I couldn't see the time. I found that monitoring my time actually stressed me out and distracted me while taking the tests. I got my internal clock figured out, and I took the LSAT sans watch or clock in room. I performed at my best. I would highly recommend trying a couple different methods with timing while practicing for the LSAT. I think some people get too obsessed with their watches and minutes. I just wanted to share my experience.
