Clock Trick is a classic plot in card magic in which the cards are displayed corresponding to a 12-hour face of a clock and a card is divined usually using a mathematical principle.


A version done with coins, or other objects, was found by Bill Kalush in Nicolas Chuquet's Triparty, written in 1484, but never published.[1]
