Free Electron Lasers (FELs) are capable of producing intense and ultrashort X-ray pulses, which enable various kinds of femtosecond time - resolved experiments. Achieving highest time resolution in optical pump / X-ray probe experiments, so called 'Timing Tools' are necessary to measure the relative arrival jitter between optical and X-ray pulse pairs . We report on a novel approach which enables us to measure the relative arrival time with superior signal quality. Consequently we can now use samples such as diamond which could not be used so far, but is one of the few materials to withstand the full power of the new MHz high repetition rate XFEL facilities such as European XFEL and LCLS II. We show proof of principle measurements from LCLS and SACLA experiments and first MHz timing measurements from European XFEL.  Bionta, M. R. et al.
