[Hint for Accurately Setting the Time]
Time correction position
After stopping the second hand at the 0 seconds position, turn the minute hand 4-5
minutes past the correct time and then turn it back to the correct time. The time on
the watch can then be set to the correct time by pushing in the crown in synchronization with a time service tone.
In the case the crown is of the screw-lock type, loosen the screw by turning the
crown to the left before operating the crown, and after having returned the crown
to the normal position following operation, turn the crown to the right while pushing it in to securely retighten it.

[Note]
* If the date is set while the time on the watch is between the hours of about 9:00
PM and 1:00 AM, the date may not change on the following day. If this
happens, set the date after temporarily moving the hands to a time other than
between the above times.
* The date is based on a 31-day calendar. The date must be changed from the
last day of the month to the first day of the following month for those months
not having 31 days (months having 30 days and February).

[Chronograph Timing]
5. Using the Chronograph
The chronograph function of this watch is able to measure and display elapsed
time up to 59 minutes 59 seconds in 1 second units. After the chronograph displays elapsed time for 59 minutes 59 seconds, it resumes timing from 0 seconds.
The chronograph minute hand continues to move until the chronograph is stopped
by pressing button (A) even after 59 minutes 59 seconds have elapsed.
1. Start timing by pressing button (A).
* The chronograph is repeatedly started and stopped by pressing button (A).
2. Pressing button (B) resets the chronograph to 0 seconds.

The chronograph continues to keep time with the chronograph hands until it is
stopped even after 60 minutes have elapsed. Once timing is finished, promptly
press button (A) to stop the chronograph, and then press button (B) to reset it to 0
seconds. If timing is allowed to continue, the battery will continue to wear down
and eventually be depleted causing the watch to stop before the end of the
indicated battery life.

6. Zero Positioning of Chronograph Hands
(After Replacing the Battery)
When resetting the chronograph after replacing the battery, if the chronograph
second hand does not return to the 0 seconds position or if the chronograph second
hand has shifted out of position due to a strong impact, perform zero positioning of
the chronograph hands according to the procedure described below.
Chronograph second hand
[Chronograph Hand Zero Positioning]
1. Pull the crown out to the time correction position.
2. Press button (A) to position the chronograph second at the 0 position.
* The chronograph second hand can be advanced rapidly by depressing button
(A) continuously.
3. Once the chronograph second hand has been positioned at the 0 position, reset
the time and return the crown to the normal position.
4. Press button (B) to check that each of the chronograph hands has been reset to
the 0 position.

7. Precautions
For correct use within the design limits of the watch, confirm the level of waterresistance of your watch, as indicated on the dial and case, and consult the table.
WARNING: Water-resistance performance
There are several types of water-resistant
watches, as shown in the following table.
Examples of use
The unit "bar" is roughly equal to 1 atmosphere.
* WATER RESIST(ANT) xx bar may also be
indicated as W.R. xx bar.

• Water-resistance for daily use (to 3 atmospheres): This type of watch is waterresistant to minor exposure to water. For example, you may wear the watch while
washing your face; however, it is not designed for use underwater.
• Upgraded water-resistance for daily use (to 5 atmospheres): This type of watch is
water-resistant to moderate exposure to water. You may wear the watch while
swimming; however, it is not designed for use while skin diving.
• Upgraded water-resistance for daily use (to 10/20 atmospheres): This type of
watch may be used for skin diving; however, it is not designed for scuba or
saturated diving using helium gas.
CAUTION
• Be sure to use the watch with the crown pressed in (normal position). If your
watch has a screw-type crown, be sure to tighten the crown completely.
• Do NOT operate the crown or button with wet fingers or when the watch is wet.
Water may enter the watch and compromise water-resistance.
• If the watch is used in seawater, rinse with fresh water afterward and wipe with a
dry cloth.
• If moisture has entered the watch, or if the inside of the crystal is fogged up and
does not become clear within a day, immediately take the watch to your dealer or
Citizen Service Center for repair. Leaving the watch in such a state will allow
corrosion to form inside.
14
• If seawater enters the watch, place the watch in a box or plastic bag and immediately take it in for repair. Otherwise, pressure inside the watch will increase, and
parts (crystal, crown, buttons, etc.) may come off.
CAUTION: Keep your watch clean.
• Leaving dust and dirt deposited between the case and crown may result in difficulty in pulling the crown out. Rotate the crown while in its normal position,
from time to time, to loosen dust and dirt and then brush it off.
• Dust and dirt tend to be deposited in gaps in the back of the case or band.
Deposited dust and dirt may cause corrosion and soil your clothing. Clean the
watch occasionally.
Cleaning the Watch
• Use a soft cloth to wipe off dirt, perspiration and water from the case and crystal
• Use a soft, dry cloth to wipe off perspiration and dirt from the leather band.
• To clean a metal, plastic, or rubber watchband, wash away dirt with mild soap
and water. Use a soft brush to remove dust and dirt jammed in the gaps in the
metal band. If your watch is not water-resistant, take it to your dealer.
NOTE: Avoid using solvents (thinner, benzine, etc.), as they may damage the
finish.

WARNING: Handling of the battery
• Keep the battery out of the reach of small children. If a child swallows the battery, contact a physician immediately.
CAUTION: Replacing the battery
• For replacement of the battery, take your watch to your dealer or Citizen Service
Center.
• Replace the battery as soon as possible if the service life of the battery has expired. Leaving a depleted battery in the watch may result in leakage, which can
damage the watch severely.
CAUTION: Operating environment
• Use the watch within the operating-temperature range specified in the instruction manual.
Using the watch where temperatures are outside the specified range, may result
in deterioration of functions or even stoppage of the watch.
16
• Do NOT use the watch in places where it is exposed to high temperature, such as
in a sauna.
Doing so may result in a skin burn.
• Do NOT leave the watch in a place where it is exposed to high temperature, such
as the glove compartment or dash-board of a car.
Doing so may result in deterioration of the watch, such as deformation of plastic
parts.
• Do NOT place the watch close to a magnet.
Timekeeping will become inaccurate if you place the watch close to magnetic
health equipment such as a magnetic necklace or a magnetic latch of a refrigerator door or handbag clasp or the earphone of a mobile phone. If this has occurred, move the watch away from the magnet and reset the time.
• Do NOT place the watch close to household appliances that generate static electricity.
Timekeeping may become inaccurate if the watch is exposed to strong static
electricity, such as is emitted from a TV screen.
• Do NOT subject the watch to a strong shock such as dropping it onto a hard
floor.
• Avoid using the watch in an environment where it may be exposed to chemicals
or corrosive gases.
17
If solvents, such as thinner and benzine, or substances containing such solvents
come in contact with the watch, discoloration, melting, cracking, etc. may result.
If the watch comes in contact with mercury used in thermometers,the case, band or
other parts may become discolored.
Periodical inspections
Your watch needs inspection once in every two or three years for safety and long
use.
To keep your watch water-resistant, the packing needs to be replaced regularly.
Other parts need to be inspected and replaced if necessary.
Ask for Citizen geuine parts upon replacement.
