Timepiece detail.png

The Timepiece is an item that can be bought from Faruq's Tools for Games in Al Kharid. Players can use it as a timer in their own games or activities.

Players can left-click on it to start it counting in whole seconds, whereupon it will become a timepiece (running). They can then left-click on it at any time to pause it, when it will become a timepiece (paused). Whether it is running or not, they can right-click on it and select "read timepiece" to find the number of seconds elapsed whilst it has been running.

Players can right-click the timepiece and select "advanced" to access two further functions. One of these is "reset timepiece", to pause it (if it is running) and reset the timer to zero. The other is "read time to friends chat members", which will announce the number of seconds elapsed in the friends chat.

Players must reset the timepiece before they can deposit it in the bank, which will help to ensure that they do not forget to reset it before using it again at a later date. They can withdraw this item from the bank in note form, and it is tradeable (both to other players and to a general store), but it is not tradeable on the Grand Exchange. When trading with another player, its value is reported as 18 coins, the purchase price from Faruq.

The timepiece measures time in days (d), hours (h), minutes (m), and seconds (s). Months, weeks, and other units of time are not shown.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The examine information refers to the old riddle, "What has hands and a face but no arms?".
  • The maximum time a timepiece can count is approximately 46500 days or over 127 years. The time resets to zero if this limit is reached.[1]

Mod Wolf: "After looking into the item, you'll be able to keep track of ~46500 days. This is over 100 years, so I think your collection will be fine for quite a while longer :P! Once this number is hit, it will reset to 0."
