One showed the time with three hands—even seconds, as if that mattered. The other was a stormclock, which could be set to wind down to the next projected highstorm.

— Dalinar describing Navani's vambrace[1]

A stormclock is a device from Roshar which can be used to tell when a highstorm is due.[1] It's composed of a single arm on a round face, and some hidden mechanisms.[2]

Rather than a clock, it's more akin to a timer. The user must wind it up for the amount of time they predict is left until a highstorm.[1] The stormclock then counts down the time and makes a small dinging sound upon finishing.[3] As such, it can be used to count down until other things as well, such as the arrival of the Everstorm.[4]

While regular Rosharan timepieces are fabrials, it's uncertain whether stormclocks are as well or if they work purely mechanically.[5]

The stormclocks have existed on Roshar for some time, but Navani Kholin is the first to create a version small enough to wear on one's wrist.[1] She designs a leather vambrace that combines a stormclock with a regular fabrial clock and a painrial, and gifts it to several people, among them Dalinar and Adrotagia.[1][4]
