Here's a neat prediction of any hour the spectator wants to choose. And unlike many of these one-in-twelve predictions, this one can be instantly repeated. The prop is large, 10 inches by 10 inches, so it shows up great for typical stand-up shows on club platforms and living rooms, but also is visible in bigger venues like auditoriums and stages.
The effect looks like this:
Magi/mentalist has a spectator stand and then he shows a box with a simple door-style lid. The box is closed. "Inside this box lies your destiny! Well, a piece of your destiny. A prediction of a small event in your immediate future, which may portend even greater things for you in the long run. Imagine something you want to happen in your future -- a goal, or a find desire. Perhaps a city you've always wanted to visit, or a wedding with that special someone, or a job promotion, or... Anything you wish to happen." The spectator thinks of this thing, and you ask her to imagine which day of the week it is happening, and then to imagine the very hour of that day when it begins. "See the face of a clock, the hour hand pointing directly to the number of that hour. Tell everyone the hour of your very special event." She says (for example) six. "Do you believe I could have known in advance that you would choose Six as your most special hour?" Regardless of her answer, you say "Because if you believe, you can make any dream come true. So... believe!" The mentalist swings open the door of the box, revealing a large clock face, with a single hour hand, pointing to the number SIX. "You now know exactly when your dream will come true. Believe, and you can make it happen."
The effect can be repeated immediately. "Who knows the hour of his/her birth?" Another spectator is chosen. The mentalist turns the clock face to himself (away from the audience's view) and moves the hand to another place on the dial, and closes the door. The spectator tells his birth hour. (Say, for example, Eleven). The door is opened and the hand points to eleven.
The clock works with some simple electronics, and the performer does not need to touch the clock to set the proper hour. Performer can do this alone, without another assistant. Although the box is opaque, performer gets necessary visibility to do what must be done. He does need to be near the box, but not touching it. The device works well, but does require practice to gain precision in setting the necessary hour.
The item is brand new and unused. I have opened it to test it and make sure it works properly before shipping it. The box is wood and plexi, covered with a wood grain contact paper.

PLEASE READ TWO IMPORTANT NOTES BELOW.
NOTE #1: Sorry, but 4 pounds is max I can ship internationally and this item is heavier than that, so bidders with USA addresses only. Thanks
NOTE #2: this item is over 4 pounds when securely packed. Sorry, but it is still a great buy from TMGS, even after the US postal service gets its cut from us! Depending on your zip code, the website may calculate shipping that is too high. If more than $19, then I can ship it as a Flat Rate box for that much. So $19 will be the max. (I will refund any excess postage that you pay.) If you want to check exact postage to your zip code, email us.
