Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures:
SCP-XXXX is to be contained by locking SCP-XXXX-A in a padded room with no possessions including clothing. If containment lasts longer than two days SCP-XXXX-A is to be anesthetized and fed intravenously until containment ends.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a small wristwatch secured to the wearer wrist by an adjustable strap. SCP-XXXX is indestructible by all conventional means. SCP-XXXX appears to be bonded to the person of Dr. Phenomenon (referred to as SCP-XXXX-A). SCP-XXXX-A is a caucasian male, appearing to be in his early twenties. SCP-XXXX-A has no unique identifying features.You can call me Dr. Phen
SCP-XXXX's primary anomalous effect is its time travel abilities. SCP-XXXX detects the moment SCP-XXXX-A dies and then sends SCP-XXXX-A far enough back in time to prevent the events of his own death. The act of time travel erases all events in the timeline between SCP-XXXX-A's death and the point at which SCP-XXXX-A stops time traveling. A series of experiments performed by The Foundation have confirmed these properties. SCP-XXXX-A reports that while he is traveling back in time he cannot see anything except darkness and the luminescent hands of the watch with no other sensory input nor any perception of his body. SCP-XXXX-A also reports that he experiences this state for an equivalent amount of time to the amount of time he travels back. This information cannot be tested by The Foundation.

Recovery Log: SCP-XXXX-A was first encountered at the recovery of a minor SCP object recovery mission in the city of ██████, █████ in the United States. SCP-XXXX-A arrived shortly after the object had been recovered, yelling information about SCPs. Task Force Officer ██████ took SCP-XXXX-A into Foundation custody. Upon interview, SCP-XXXX-A introduced himself as Dr.Phenomenon, and briefly explained the nature of SCP-XXXX as well as his knowledge of The Foundation from a previous timeline.

Interview Log: SCP-XXXX-A

Interviewed: SCP-XXXX-A (Dr.Phenomenon)

Interviewer: Researcher ████

Foreword: After the period in which SCP-XXXX-A explained SCP-XXXX, A secondary interview was conducted to ascertain the motives of SCP-XXXX as well as his fitness to work (as per his request) as a Foundation researcher.

<Begin Log>

Researcher ████: You claim to be time traveler?

SCP-XXXX-A: That is correct.

Researcher ████: You understand that we cannot just take your word for it?

SCP-XXXX-A: I do and I anticipated that. I have prepared some experiments for review. These should confirm the watch's abilities.

SCP-XXXX-A hands Researcher ████ a small sheaf of papers. Researcher ████ looks over the first page.

Researcher ████: Interesting… I will have these looked at. For what reason did you try to be recovered by The Foundation?

SCP-XXXX-A: In the timeline previous to this one, I was recovered by The Foundation in my late thirties. Eventually I was trusted enough to become a researcher. During my time as a researcher, a some… unfortunate events occurred which resulted in the end of The Foundation. Then I reached the end of my life. I died of natural causes and the watch sent me back to the time right before I first put it on. It's the only opportunity I have to not wear it. I decided to put it back on and try and prevent what happened in the previous timeline. I knew I had to be recovered by the Foundation quickly and I also knew from Foundation records where a nearby recovery event would occur. I went there and was recovered. You know the rest.

Researcher ████: Which SCP?

SCP-XXXX-A: Pardon?

Researcher ████: What SCP caused the end of The Foundation?

SCP-XXXX-A: We always assume that an SCP will be the thing that ends us don't we? As far as I know, no part of the event was caused by an SCP.

Researcher ████: Then what happened?

SCP-XXXX-A: The O5s probably wouldn't want me to say it.

Researcher ████: The O5 council doesn't know you exist. I'm afraid I will have to insist you answer.


Researcher ████: That doesn't actually explain what happened.

SCP-XXXX-A: Wait for it…

Researcher ████ receives an urgent phone call and ends the interview.
<End Log>

Closing Statement: Following the interview SCP-XXXX-A had a private interview with an unknown O5. The testing proposed by SCP-XXXX-A has been approved and completed. SCP-XXXX-A was granted Level 3 clearance once testing was concluded.
