SCP-3489 in containment

Item #: SCP-3489

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures:
SCP-3489 is to be stored in a standard safe-class object storage locker in Site-██. Staff wishing to perform tests with SCP-3489 must submit a written proposal for approval by Dr. ███████.

Update: As of ██/██/████: SCP-3489 is to be stored in a high-security object storage locker at Site-██. No personnel are to remove SCP-3489 without written approval from Dr. ███████. Tests involving SCP-3489 on any class D personnel now require approval from Dr. █████, director of Site-██.

SCP-3489 is a bracelet with a silver pendant and clasp made of three braided strips of leather. These strips are black, gray, and brown. Testing has shown that SCP-3489 is much more fragile than a similar non-anomalous object. The origin of its anomalous properties remains unknown.

When worn, SCP-3489 will give the impression of ‘rewinding’ time by 4 to 7 minutes upon the death of the wearer. The wearer will retain any memories gained during the ‘rewound’ time, allowing them to effectively predict and avoid their cause of death. It is unknown whether or not SCP-3489 actually affects the passage of time, or if it merely gives the appearance of doing so. SCP-3489 will not 'rewind' to a time before the wearer was wearing the object - instead the wearer will simply die as normal.
All outside observers do not retain any memories from this ‘rewound’ time. This makes it difficult to test the limits of SCP-3489, as only the wearer knows how many times it has activated.
