The Bow of Hours is a legendary bow in Unkalaki culture on Roshar. When someone is able to draw the bow, it heralds "years of change".
According to Cord, her father Lunamor was able to draw the bow in the Horneater Peaks at the start of the new millenium.[fn 1] She mentioned that spren helped provide Lunamor the strength needed to draw the bow. She also named him the Fal'ala'liki'nor, although it is unclear how this title was related to the bow.
Lunamor's ability to draw the Bow of Hours may have been related to his use of a grandbow during the Battle of Thaylen Field, but he appeared to consider that incident a violation of an unknown oath, and did not discuss it any further.
