The Chrono Navigator is an extremely powerful technology that allows its user to travel through space and time. Its only known owner has been Professor Paradox, who uses it to transport himself throughout the multiverse.
In Alien Force and Ultimate Alien, the Chrono Navigator resembled an ordinary pocket watch.
In Omniverse, the navigator was fashioned into a robotic arm prosthetic for Paradox.
Simply put, the Chrono Navigator can transport its user to any point in space-time without them getting lost. Paradox once rationalized it to a chrono-mental displaced Ben as "a GPS for the multiverse".

Through misuse or the desire of the user, the Chrono Navigator can cause irreparable damage to the time-stream, resulting in the destruction of existence itself.
In Alien Force and Ultimate Alien Paradox used it by both disappearing out of space and creating blue portals to walk through. In Omniverse, however, he exclusively uses portals.
It is unknown how Paradox acquired it, but it has appeared with Paradox ever since his debut.
Due to a growing involvement in the Time War, Paradox had the Chrono Navigator fashioned into a robotic arm to replace the one accidentally cut off by Ben 10,000[DJW 1] for the purpose of camouflaging it.
In Ben Again, Paradox came to 16-year-old Ben in 11-year-old's time period when Eon had swapped their consciousnesses with each other, informing him that Eon was after the Chrono Navigator. As Eon battled Paradox, he cut off his robotic arm and kidnapped him. As 16-year-old Ben hid the Chrono Navigator as that his 11-year-old self would find it in the future, Eon learned the truth about the device and intercepted it at the moment that 11-year-old Ben uncovered it.
Upon laying hands on the Chrono Navigator, Eon was able to see and feel all the alternate timelines again, being able to instantly summon his servants. However, his rupturing of the space-time continuum had started to break existence, and Paradox warns him to stop. Eon decided that if he could not rule the cosmos, then he would destroy it, further using the Chrono Navigator to rupture and cause chaos. Both Bens as Clockwork are able to defeat Eon, ejecting him from their timeline while leaving the Chrono Navigator behind so that Paradox can readjust it to his arm.
