You need to know how much time you have left for those last 8 problems--NOT how much time you've used on the other 18 problems?! No matter where I looked, I couldn't find an analog watch that I could use as a countdown watch for the LSAT. Chronographs are expensive and cluttered, and diver bezels count up, not down which is useless...So two nights before test day, I just took apart my watch and used white-out and a permanent marker to make my own analog countdown watch for use during my exam. Now I'm offering quality custom-made watches to help you do your best on test day.
Pacing is important, but it should be effortless. You have to know how much time you have left to quickly decide when you're taking too long on a subsection. This watch helps you pace yourself properly without wasting time or losing focus. Just a glance tells you what you need to know to decide: Should you take the time to analyze two probable answers, or decide to use educated guessing and move on to the next question? This watch is currently used by 4 different LSAT Prep companies.
Using this watch is simple and fast. At the start of each section of the LSAT, you adjust the minute hand to the starting position. After that, all you have to do is glance at your watch throughout the test to instantly determine how much time remains and see your approaching time landmarks. It can be propped up in front of your test booklet like a tripod, as shown below.
Choose from a variety of watch faces to guide your progress through a section. I created custom watch faces to meet a variety of pacing and testing needs. The Options page illustrates available designs, and you select your favorite when you add the watch to your shopping cart, or create your own! The design you choose can help you stay on track during each section by breaking up the sections with color, tickmarks, and dividing lines. Read about How it Works to learn about the strategy behind my designs.

Custom options that help you Test at Your Best!
When do I decide what design I want on my watch?
When you submit your order, please be sure to select the letter of the design you want. You can see all the options by looking in the Options page.
How long will it take to get my watch?
Custom watches generally ship out within a week via Priority Mail (2-3 bus days). If you order watchface option Y or P, your order will generally go out within 1 day because I keep those in stock. Please note that the couple of weeks immediately before the LSAT are very busy. If I believe your order cannot be filled in time for the next test session, I will email you to let you know immediately.
While you wait for your watch to arrive, start using my timer video to practice; you can download it to your computer so you don't need an internet connection to run it. It can also run on your iphone, and you can download it to your iphone for use when you aren't connected to the web using this app.
About the watch base that I use:
The actual printable area of the dial is about 27-28mm, which is a great size for nice clear numbers. The watch face is big enough that you can wear it on your wrist or the watch can be seated in front of you just beyond your test booklet in a tripod position. The straps of the watch allow it to sit propped up so the watch stands like an easel.
