Description: SCP-1516 is a small glass vial, containing several watch components and an unidentified metallic fragment. The vial is attached to a brass chain. Suspended under the vial is a brass pendant in the shape of an octopus. On the reverse of the pendant is an inscription consisting of the phrase "███████ ██ ██████" and a large "N." The inscription is latin, and translates roughly to [DATA EXPUNGED]. The components inside the vial include one (1) watch hand, and two (2) gears.
The objects exhibit anomalous electromagnetic properties, and will arrange themselves atop the metallic fragment when unimpeded. The gears and watch hand rotate autonomously, completing one (1) circular rotation in sixty (60) seconds.
