Cthulhu Mechanical Pocket Watch

Introduced in H. P. Lovecraft’s short story “The Shadow Out of Time,” the Great Race of Yith is a prehistoric civilization that populated much of the Earth until their demise in the late Cretaceous era. Their great power derives from their mastery of precognition via time travel.

Having gained an extremely evolved mind, Yithians, a race of sentient beings of extraterrestrial origin, are capable of projecting their consciousness across time and space and inhabiting the bodies and minds of other creatures.

This antique pocket watch inscribed with mysterious totems and scripts may just be the device used by the Yithians to travel across time…

How to Operate

To wind the watch: turn the crown in the clockwise direction (approximately 25-30 rotations; do not overwind).

To set the time: pull the crown all the way out, wind in both directions, and push the crown all the way back in to begin normal timekeeping. We suggest you fully wind the watch before adjusting the time.

User Tips

A product of the wisdom of the Yithians, this pocket watch is automatic, meaning that the natural motion of the wearer provides energy to wind the mainspring, making manual winding unnecessary if worn enough. However, you do need to wind it manually at first to start the initial movement.

When fully wound, the watch can run properly for 30~40 hours. Insufficient winding may result in a loss of time.

It is advised that you wear the watch for at least 12 hours a day so that enough motion keeps it fully wound.

If the watch stopped, you may oscillate it ten times or so to restart the movement or manually wind it up. Remember to adjust the date and time afterward.

Mechanical watches are not exact; they keep time within a certain tolerance. +/-30 seconds per day is considered to be generally acceptable. Likewise, this watch may lose or gain time after being in use for a while. Be assured that this is normal! You can simply wind it up by hand again.

Avoid shocks, collisions, or contact with water. Keep away from electronic products.
