Getting Acquainted
Congratulations upon your selection of this CASIO watch. To get the most out of your
purchase, be sure to read this manual carefully.
Keep the watch exposed to bright light

Bright Light
Solar cell
The electricity generated by the solar cell of the watch is
stored by a rechargeable battery. Leaving or using the
watch where it is not exposed to light causes the battery to
run down. Make sure the watch is exposed to light as
much as possible.
• When you are not wearing the watch on your wrist,
position the face so it is pointed at a source of bright
light.
• You should try to keep the watch outside of your sleeve
as much as possible. Charging is reduced significantly if
the face is covered only partially.
E-1
• The actual level at which some functions are disabled depends on the watch model.
• Frequent display illumination can run down the battery quickly and require charging.
The following guidelines give an idea of the charging time required to recover from a
single illumination operation.
Approximately 5 minutes exposure to bright sunlight coming in through a window
Approximately 8 hours exposure to indoor fluorescent lighting
• Be sure to read “Power Supply” (page E-35) for important information you
need to know when exposing the watch to bright light.
• The watch continues to operate, even when it is not exposed to light. Leaving the
watch in the dark can cause the battery to run down, which will result in some watch
functions to be disabled. If the battery goes dead, you will have to re-configure watch
settings after recharging. To ensure normal watch operation, be sure to keep it
exposed to light as much as possible.

Illumination
To illuminate the display manually
In any mode, press L to turn on illumination.
• The above operation turns on illumination regardless of
the current auto light switch setting.
• You can use the procedure below to select either 1.5
seconds or 3 seconds as the illumination duration. When
you press L, the illumination will remain on for about
1.5 seconds or 3 seconds, depending on the current
illumination duration setting.
About the Auto Light Switch
Turning on the auto light switch causes illumination to turn on, whenever you position
your wrist as described below in any mode.
E-31
Lower than 15 degrees to
illuminate
• Illumination may not turn on if the face of the watch is
more than 15 degrees above or below parallel. Make
sure that the back of your hand is parallel to the ground.
Moving the watch to a position that is parallel to the ground and then tilting it toward
you more than 40 degrees causes illumination to turn on.
• Wear the watch on the outside of your wrist.
Parallel to
ground
More than
40°
Warning!
• Always make sure you are in a safe place whenever you are reading the
display of the watch using the auto light switch. Be especially careful when
running or engaged in any other activity that can result in accident or injury.
Also take care that sudden illumination by the auto light switch does not
startle or distract others around you.
• When you are wearing the watch, make sure that its auto light switch is turned
off before riding a bicycle or operating a motorcycle or any other motor
vehicle. Sudden and unintended operation of the auto light switch can create a
distraction, which can result in a traffic accident and serious personal injury.
E-32
To turn the auto light switch on and off
In the Timekeeping Mode, hold down L for about three seconds to toggle auto light
switch on (indicator
is shown on the display) and off.
• The auto light switch on indicator (

Power Supply
This watch is equipped with a solar cell and a rechargeable battery that is charged by
the electrical power produced by the solar cell. The illustration shown below shows
how you should position the watch for charging.
Example: Orient the watch so its face is
pointing at a light source.
• The illustration shows how to position a
watch with a resin band.
• Note that charging efficiency drops when
any part of the solar cell is blocked by
clothing, etc.
• You should try to keep the watch outside
of your sleeve as much as possible.
Charging is reduced significantly if the
face is covered only partially.

• The flashing LOW indicator at Level 3 tells you that battery power is very low, and
that exposure to bright light for charging is required as soon as possible.
• At Level 5, all functions are disabled and settings return to their initial factory
defaults. Once the battery reaches Level 2 after falling to Level 5, reconfigure the
current time, date and other settings.
• The watch’s Home City code setting will change automatically to TYO (Tokyo)
whenever the battery drops to Level 5 or when you have the rechargeable battery
replaced.
• Display indicators reappear as soon as the battery is charged from Level 5 to
Level 2.
• Leaving the watch exposed to direct sunlight or some other very strong light source
can cause the battery power indicator to show a reading temporarily higher than the
actual battery level. The correct battery level should be indicated after a few minutes.
Battery Power Indicator
ll
Important!
• 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 rechargeable battery
power to run down. Be sure that the watch is exposed to bright light whenever
possible.
• This watch uses a rechargeable battery to store power produced by the solar cell, so
regular battery replacement is not required. However, after very long use, the
rechargeable battery may lose its ability to achieve a full charge. If you experience
problems getting the rechargeable battery to charge fully, contact your dealer or
CASIO distributor about having it replaced.
• Never try to remove or replace the watch’s rechargeable battery yourself. Use of the
wrong type of battery can damage the watch.
• The current time and all other settings return to their initial factory defaults whenever
battery power drops to Level 5 (pages E-37 and E-38) and when you have the
battery replaced.
• Turn on the watch’s Power Saving function (page E-45) and keep it in an area
normally exposed to bright light when storing it for long periods. This helps to keep
the rechargeable battery from going dead.
Recover indicator
• Performing illumination or beeper operations during a
short period may cause
(recover) to appear on
the display. Illumination, alarm, countdown timer alarm
and hourly time signal will be disabled until battery
power recovers.
After some time, battery power will recover and
(recover) will disappear, indicating that the above
functions are enabled again.
• If
(recover) appears frequently, it probably means
that remaining battery power is low. Leave the watch in
bright light to allow it to charge.
E-39
Operation Guide 3269
Charging Precautions
Certain charging conditions can cause the watch to become very hot. Avoid leaving
the watch in the areas described below whenever charging its rechargeable battery.
Also note that allowing the watch to become very hot can cause its liquid crystal
display to black out. The appearance of the LCD should become normal again when
the watch returns to lower temperature.
Warning!
Leaving the watch in bright light to charge its rechargeable battery 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.
• On the dashboard of a car parked in direct sunlight
• Too close to an incandescent lamp
• Under direct sunlight

when you last exited the mode appears first.
Timekeeping
• Resetting the seconds to 00 while the current count is in the range of 30 to 59
causes the minutes to be increased by 1. In the range of 00 to 29, the seconds are
reset to 00 without changing the minutes.
• The year can be set in the range of 2000 to 2099.
• The watch’s built-in full automatic calendar makes allowances for different month
lengths and leap years. Once you set the date, there should be no reason to change
it except after you have the watch’s battery replaced or the battery drops to Level 5.

• The current time for all city codes in the Timekeeping Mode and World Time Mode is
calculated in accordance with the Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) for each city,
based on your Home City time setting.
World Time
The seconds count of the World Time is synchronized with the seconds count of the
Timekeeping Mode.
Illumination Precautions
• The electro-luminescent panel that provides illumination loses power after very long
use.
• Illumination may be difficult to see when viewed under direct sunlight.
• The watch may emit an audible sound whenever the display is illuminated. This is
due to vibration of the EL panel used for illumination, and does not indicate
malfunction.
• Illumination turns off automatically whenever an alarm sounds.
• Frequent use of illumination runs down the battery.

Operation Guide 3269
Auto light switch precautions
• Avoid wearing the watch on the inside of your wrist. Doing so causes the auto light
switch to operate when it is not needed, which shortens battery life. If you want to
wear the watch on the inside of your wrist, turn off the auto light switch feature.
• Illumination turns off after a preset amount of time (1.5 or 3 seconds), even if you
keep the watch pointed toward your face.
• Static electricity or magnetic force can interfere with proper operation of the auto
light switch. If illumination does not turn on, try moving the watch back to the starting
position (parallel with the ground) and then tilt it back toward you again. If this does
not work, drop your arm all the way down so it hangs at your side, and then bring it
back up again.
• Under certain conditions, illumination may not turn on until about one second after
you turn the face of the watch toward you. This does not necessarily indicate
malfunction of the auto light switch.
• You may notice a very faint clicking sound coming from the watch when it is shaken
back and forth. This sound is caused by mechanical operation of the auto light
switch, and does not indicate a problem with the watch.
