Said to contain the sand of a thousand beaches, this timepiece can be turned over, setting back a recent event so that it must be replayed for a potentially different outcome. Forged in Chronos's workshops, they were made in the thousands. Most were used up in the Creation War (1486 DE - 8777 DE).

In the Demon Spawn War (8972 GE - 9493 GE), thousands of these were used in the defense of Enmort. Today, less than a dozen of these devices remain. The years of workmanship required to makes these devices, along with rare ingredients found only in some systems, is why there are not more.
