Hand and Date Indicator Movement
x The movement of the 2 Minute Hand and 3 Hour Hand of this watch are coordinated. To change the
3 Hour Hand setting, you will need to move the 2 Minute Hand.
The following explains some of the terms used in this manual.
x GPS (Global Positioning System)
A positioning system based on satellites. Signals transmitted by GPS satellites include time information
and orbit information. The distances from multiple GPS satellites are used to acquire watch position
information.
x calibration signal
Long-wave signals emitted by transmitters set up by governments or other organizations that can be used
as timekeeping reference signals. Time calibration signals include time information only.
x time zone
Global zones that are used to define the standard time at a specific location.
See “UTC (Universal Time Coordinated) and Time Zones” (page L-2) for more information.
x summer time
A difference of one hour or 30 minutes applied to standard time during summer. The start and end of the
period during which summer time is applied differs according to country and geographic region. Also,
there are countries and/or regions that do not use the summer time system.
x Home City (Time Zone)
The city and/or time zone whose date and time are normally displayed by a timepiece. When GPS
position information is acquired, the current position’s city and/or time zone is the Home City (Time Zone).
See “Acquiring GPS Position Information” (page E-30) and “Configuring Home City (Time Zone) Settings”
(page E-59) for more information.
x World Time City (Time Zone)

x UTC (Universal Time Coordinated)
The standard time at any particular location around the world is based on Universal Time Coordinated
(UTC). UTC times are based on high-precision International Atomic Time (TAI).
See “UTC (Universal Time Coordinated) and Time Zones” (page L-2).
x leap second
There are very slight differences between UTC and TAI due to irregularities in the earth’s rotation. Leap
seconds are added to times to make adjustments for these differences.
Do this immediately after purchasing your watch!
(Position Information Acquisition Operation)
When position information is acquired successfully, the watch is able to determine its current location and
adjust its time and date setting accordingly.
Important!
x Before using the watch, check its current charge level and charge it if necessary. See “Checking the
Charge Level” (page E-17).
x Perform this operation in the Timekeeping Mode (not in the Airplane Mode). See “Mode Reference
Guide” (page E-42).
x It can take as long as 13 minutes for position information to be acquired.

If the time and date settings are incorrect
If the watch’s time and date settings are not correct after you finish performing the procedure above, it
could mean that the watch’s hands and/or date indicator positions are out of alignment. If this happens,
perform the home position adjustment procedure (page E-67).
x Note that an internal decoding process the watch performs after it receives a signal may cause the
time setting to be slightly off (by less than one second). Performing the home position adjustment
procedure does not correct this condition.
If time and date settings still are not correct, try performing the steps below.
Configure the Home City (Time Zone) setting (page E-59) and the summer time setting (page E-60).
Note
x If the time and/or date setting is not correct even after you try performing the operations below, use
button and crown operations to configure time and date settings manually (page E-63).
− Change to another location and try performing a GPS signal and/or time calibration signal receive
operation again.
− Adjust the hand and day indicator home positions.
x Even in the above case, it is recommended that you move to a location that is appropriate for GPS
signal reception and perform a position information receive operation to configure time and date
settings.
x Even if you are unable to perform a GPS signal and/or time calibration signal receive operation for
some reason, the watch will keep time with average monthly accuracy of ±15 seconds.
Refer to the “City/Time Zone Indicators and Time Offset Table” (page L-3) to select your Home City

Charging the Watch
The face of the watch is a solar panel that generates power from light. The generated power charges a
built-in rechargeable battery, which powers watch operations. The watch charges whenever it is exposed
to light.
Important!
x This watch uses a special secondary battery.
− Charging will not be possible if the watch’s temperature is outside the approximate range of
approximately –10°C to 60°C (14°F to 140°F).
− Over-discharge will occur if the watch is not charged within approximately three months after it stops
operation due to low battery power. Charging may not be possible after over-discharge occurs. See
“Power Levels” (page E-24).
Charging Guide
Whenever you are not
wearing the watch, be sure
to leave it in a location where
it is exposed to light.
x Best charging
performance is achieved
by exposing the watch to
light that is as strong as
possible.
E-22
Warning!
Leaving the watch in bright light for charging can cause it to become quite hot. Take care when
handling the watch to avoid burn injury. The watch can become particularly hot when exposed to
the following conditions for long periods.
x On the dashboard of a car parked in direct sunlight
x Too close to an incandescent lamp
x Under direct sunlight
Important!
x Keep the watch in an area normally exposed to bright light when storing it for long periods. This helps
to ensure that power does not run down.
x Storing the watch for long periods in an area where there is no light or wearing it in such a way that it is
blocked from exposure to light can cause power to run down. Make sure that the watch is exposed to
bright light whenever possible.
When wearing the watch, make
sure that its face is not blocked
from light by the sleeve of your
clothing.
x The watch may enter a sleep
state (page E-27) if its face is
blocked by your sleeve even
only partially.

The watch is designed to go into a power recovery mode that stops hand operation temporarily whenever
power suddenly drops below a certain level due to continuous signal reception, or overuse of the alarm
tone over a short period or other operations over a short period. Note that all operations are disabled
while the watch is in the power recovery mode.
The hands will move to the correct positions and the watch will resume normal operation after power
recovers (in about 15 minutes). Putting the watch in a location where it is exposed to light will help power
to recover sooner.
x When power drops to Level 3, all settings (including timekeeping) will be cleared. Recharging the
battery will reset all settings to their initial factory defaults, so you will need to configure settings again.
x When the watch is at Level 3, exposing it to light for a while will cause the 1 Second Hand to move to
the position of second 57. This indicates that charging has started.

Troubleshooting
When the time and date settings are not configured automatically
First, check the current charge level and charge if necessary.
See “Checking the Charge Level” (page E-17).
■ Time and date settings are not configured automatically.
Signals are not being received normally, or the hands and/or date indicator is out of alignment.
See “Configuring Time and Date Settings” (page E-19).
Hand Movement and Position
■ I lost track of what mode the watch is in.
Refer to “Mode Reference Guide” (page E-42). To return directly to the Timekeeping Mode, hold down C for
at least two seconds.
x Holding down C for at least four seconds will enter or exit the Airplane Mode.
See “Using the Watch in an Aircraft (Airplane Mode)” (page E-45).
■ The 1 Second Hand is moving at two-second intervals.
■ The 1 Second Hand is moving at five-second intervals.
■ All the watch’s hands are stopped at 12 o’clock and none of the buttons work.
Power may be low. Expose the watch to light until the 1 Second Hand starts moving normally, at onesecond intervals (page E-22).
E-70
E-71
Operation Guide 5410
■ The hands of the watch suddenly start moving at high speed, even when I do not perform any
operation.
This could be due to any one of the following causes. In all cases, the hand movement does not indicate
malfunction, and should stop shortly.
x The watch is recovering from a sleep state (page E-27).
x The time setting is being adjusted following a successful auto signal receive operation (page E-28).
■ Hands suddenly stop moving. Button operation also is disabled.
The watch may be in the power recovery mode (page E-25). Do not perform any operation until the hands
return to their normal positions (in about 15 minutes). The hands should return to their correct positions when
normal operation returns. To help power recover, leave the watch in a location where it is exposed to light.
■ The current time setting is off by hours.
x Your Home City (Time Zone) setting may be wrong. Check your Home City (Time Zone) setting and
correct it, if necessary (page E-48).
■ The current time setting is off by one hour, 30 minutes, or some regular interval.
x The summer time setting is not correct.
x Correct the summer time setting (pages E-60 and E-61).
■ The hands and/or day indications are off.
This could indicate that the watch has been exposed to magnetism or strong impact, which has caused
problems with proper hand and day alignment. Adjust the watch’s hand and day home position alignment
(page E-67).
Charging
■ The watch does not resume operation after I expose it to light.
It can take quite a long time to charge the battery after the power level drops to Level 3 (page E-24). Continue
exposing the watch to light until the 1 Second Hand starts moving normally (at one-second intervals).
This could indicate that over-discharge has occurred and so the secondary battery can no longer be
recharged. If this happens, contact your retailer to have the secondary battery replaced.
■ The 1 Second Hand starts to move at one-second intervals, but then suddenly returns to moving
at two-second intervals.
The watch probably is not sufficiently charged yet. Continue keeping it exposed to light.
