SCP-3XXX pre-containment.

Item #: SCP-3XXX

Object Class: Safe

Threat Level: Blue

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-3XXX is currently contained in a UL 752 Level 4 bulletproof chamber with a security door. Codes must be changed every two months with an included artificial failsafe. Access to SCP-3XXX requires approval from one (1) Level 4 Senior Researcher. Under no circumstances should SCP-3XXX be used without supervised experimentation.

Description: SCP-3XXX is a Seiko-brand analog clock identical to its normal model unit. The periphery of SCP-3XXX does not show on the outer part of the clock face. The interior of SCP-3XXX does not differentiate from its non-anomalous model, having almost the same components and material composition. An additional component of SCP-3XXX is a small thirty-second timer. On the back of SCP-3XXX are small buttons labeled important dates from past and future times. Instead of running on an AA-type battery, SCP-3XXX uses a 9V-type battery, allowing it to last longer than its original. Any attempts to disassemble or destroy SCP-3XXX have resulted in failure or minor damage. The origins of SCP-3XXX remain unknown.

SCP-3XXX's anomalous properties occur when a subject moves one of the hands counterclockwise or clockwise. As the subject moves a hand forward, time progresses faster as goes vice versa. The subject will feel no compulsion when using SCP-3XXX. When the subject stops moving a hand, their location (that is, earth) will remain the same but their location in time will be different. When the timer reaches zero, subjects will return to the present time. Any event affected by SCP-3XXX will return to its normal state. If there are any ripple effects caused by SCP-3XXX, details must be noted and reported to a Site Director.

Experiment Log 3XXX-A

Experiments were performed between ██/██/██ and ██/██/██. Subjects were given disposable cameras to take photos as research material. All details were noted by supervised researchers and sent for verification.

Procedure: D-4958 was instructed to turn SCP-3XXX's minute hand backward to ten minutes. D-4958 was sent back ten minutes prior to testing with a previous test of SCP-3XXX being conducted. Site security detained D-4958 but had soon returned to the present time.
