SET DATE AND TIME
Pull CROWN to MIDDLE position and turn until correct date appears. After setting date, pull
crown all the way out and turn until correct time is shown. Ensure correct AM/PM setting by
verifying that date changes at midnight, not noon. Push CROWN in when done. Adjust date
after months with fewer than 31 days.
INDICATOR HAND ADJUSTMENT
Pull CROWN all the way out. Indicator hand should point to 12 o’clock. If it does not, press
either push button to move hand until it points to 12 o’clock. TIDE and TEMP push buttons
move hand clockwise and counterclockwise, respectively. Hold push button to move hand
fast. Push CROWN in when done.
TIDE/TEMPERATURE SELECTION
Indicator hand shows either tide or temperature constantly. When temperature is shown,
press TIDE push button to select tide clock. Hand moves to low tide and then to current tide.
When tide is shown, press TEMP push button to select thermometer. Hand moves to beginning
of thermometer scale and then to current temperature.
TIDE CLOCK
For tide clock, indicator hand always rotates clockwise, so tide is rising when hand is pointing
left and falling when pointing right. Number of hours to next high/low tide is shown on tide
scale.
The primary factor in determining tides is moon position. Tide clock uses moon position to
predict high and low tides, which are 6 hours and 12.5 minutes apart.
Tides are also influenced by sun position and shape of shoreline, so tide clock cannot precisely
give times of high and low tides. Periodic adjustment may be necessary.
To set tide clock, pull CROWN to MIDDLE position. Press either push button to move hand to
current tide. TIDE and TEMP push buttons move hand clockwise and counterclockwise, respectively. Push CROWN in when done.

THERMOMETER
When worn on wrist, thermometer reading is affected by body heat. For more accurate readings, remove watch and put in shade for at least several minutes.
Watch can measure water temperature also, if submerged. Be sure to select temperature display before placing watch in water, as buttons should not be pressed with watch underwater.
Thermometer readings are taken every minute, and more frequently, if temperature is changing.
INDIGLO® NIGHT-LIGHT
Press crown to illuminate watch face. Patented (U.S. pat. 4,527,096 and 4,775,964) electroluminescent technology used in the INDIGLO® night-light illuminates entire watch face at night and
in low light conditions.
BRACELET ADJUSTMENT

and gently twist bracelet to disengage. Determine wrist size, then insert spring bar in correct
bottom hole (Fig. 2). Push down on spring bar, align with top hole and release to lock in place
(Fig. 3).
