S034 FEATURES The SEIKO Quartz Stopwatch Cal. S034 is a digital stopwatch featuring a lap time/split time memory function that can store and recall up to 30 sets of lap times and split times. Time/calendar and alarm functions are also provided. In addition, it is equipped with an electroluminescent panel that evenly illuminates the display for easy viewing in the dark. ■ STOPWATCH The stopwatch can measure up to 10 hours in 1/100 seconds. Up to 99 sets of lap times and split times can be measured and displayed. ■ LAP TIME AND SPLIT TIME DISPLAYS Two separate stopwatch displays are available for lap time and split time measurements. ■ MEMORY FUNCTION Up to 30 measurements can be stored in memory, and they can be recalled either during or after the measurement. ■ TIME/CALENDAR Year, month, day, date, hour, minutes and seconds are displayed. 4 ■ ALARM The alarm can be set to ring on a 24-hour basis. An hourly time signal is also provided. English The calendar automatically adjusts for odd and even months including February of leap years from the year 1995 up to the end of 2044. ■ CHANGEOVER BETWEEN 12- AND 24-HOUR INDICATIONS ■ BATTERY LIFE INDICATOR All the digits in the display start flashing when the battery needs to be replaced. ■ ILLUMINATING LIGHT (ELECTROLUMINESCENT PANEL) The light uses an illuminating system based on a phenomenon called “electroluminescence”. The display is illuminated in all modes at the press of a button. 5 English There are five buttons as indicated in the illustration below.

English ILLUMINATING LIGHT (ELECTROLUMINESCENT PANEL) * The display is illuminated for 3 seconds. * It remains illuminated if Button E is kept pressed. AM NOTES 1 While the hourly time signal is engaged and the sound for button operation confirmation is turned on, pressing any button to operate the watch will turn off the illuminating light. 2 While Button E is kept pressed in any mode to illuminate the display, the other buttons will not work. 23 English ✩ The electroluminescent display loses its luminance as the battery voltage decreases. In addition, the luminance level of the electroluminescent panel decreases gradually over time. After 500 hours of use, the level decreases by about half. * 500 hours of use corresponds to 7 years of use if the illuminating light is used 140 times a day. ✩ When the illuminating light becomes dim, have the battery replaced with a new one. If the illuminating light remains dim after the battery is replaced, have the electroluminescent panel replaced with a new one by the retailer from whom the stopwatch was purchased, or an AUTHORIZED SEIKO DEALER. It will be replaced at cost. ✩ While the illuminating light is used, the stopwatch may make a very small noise. However, this is not a malfunction. BATTERY LIFE INDICATOR ● When all the digits start flashing, replace the battery with a new one as soon as possible. Otherwise, the display will become blank and the watch will stop operating in 2 to 3 days. We suggest that you have the battery replaced by a SEIKO DEALER. * Even though the display is flashing, time accuracy is not affected. 24 3 Years The miniature battery which powers your watch should last approximately 3 years. However, because the battery is inserted at the factory to check the function and performance of the watch, its actual life once in your possession may be less than the specified period. When the battery expires, be sure to replace it as soon as possible to prevent any malfunction. For battery replacement, we recommend that you contact an AUTHORIZED SEIKO DEALER and request SEIKO CR2032 battery. English BATTERY CHANGE * If the alarm is used for more than 20 seconds a day, the confirmation sound more than 50 times a day and/or the illuminating light more than 3 times a day (for 3 seconds each time), the battery life may be less than the specified period. CAUTION Do not remove the battery from the watch. If it is necessary to take out the battery, keep it out of the reach of children. If a child swallows it, consult a doctor immediately. 25 English TO PRESERVE THE QUALITY OF YOUR WATCH ■ WATER RESISTANCE ● Non-water resistance If “WATER RESISTANT” is not inscribed on the case back, your watch is not water resistant, and care should be taken not to get it wet as water may damage the module. If the watch becomes wet, we suggest that you have it checked by an AUTHORIZED SEIKO DEALER or SERVICE CENTER. ● Water resistance (3 bar) If “WATER RESISTANT” is inscribed on the case back, your watch is designed and manufactured to withstand up to 3 bar, such as accidental contact with splashes of water or rain, but it is not designed for swimming or diving. 26 ● Water resistance (5 bar)* If “WATER RESISTANT 5 BAR” is inscribed on the 5 bar WR case back, your watch is designed and manufactured to withstand up to 5 bar and is suitable for swimming, yachting and taking a shower. ● Water resistance (10 bar/15 bar/20 bar)* 10/15/20 If “WATER RESISTANT 10 bar WR BAR”, “WATER RESISTANT 15 BAR” or “WATER RESISTANT 20 BAR” is inscribed on the case back, your watch is designed and manufactured to withstand up to 10 bar/15 bar/20 bar and is suitable for taking a bath and shallow diving, but not for scuba diving. We recommend that you wear a SEIKO Diver’s watch for scuba diving. NOTE: Pressure in bar is a test pressure and should not be considered as corresponding to actual diving depth since swimming movement tends to increase the pressure at a given depth. Care should also be taken on diving into water. ■ TEMPERATURES English * Do not operate the buttons when the watch is wet or in water. If used in sea water, rinse the watch in fresh water and dry it completely. * When taking a shower with a water resistance 5 bar watch, or taking a bath with a water resistance 10, 15 or 20 bar watch, be sure to observe the following: • Do not operate the buttons when the watch is wet with soapy water or shampoo. • If the watch is left in warm water, a slight time loss or gain may be caused. This condition, however, will be corrected when the watch returns to normal temperature. Your watch works with stable accuracy between a temperature range of 5°C and 35°C (41°F and 95°F). Temperatures over 60°C (140°F) may cause battery leakage or shorten the battery life. If the watch is left in direct sunlight for a long time, the display may become black, but this condition will be corrected when the watch returns to normal temperature. Do not leave your watch in very low temperatures below –10°C␣ (+14°F) for a long time since the cold may cause: a. a slight time loss or gain. b. the change of digits to become slow. c. the display light to dim. However, the above conditions will be corrected when the watch returns to normal temperature. 27 +60°C -10°C English ■ SHOCKS & VIBRATION Light activities will not affect your watch, but be careful not to drop your watch or hit it against hard surfaces, as this may cause damage. ■ MAGNETISM The watch will not be affected by magnetism. N S ■ CARE OF CASE AND BRACELET To prevent possible rusting of the case and bracelet caused by dust, moisture and perspiration, wipe them periodically with a soft dry cloth. 28 ■ CHEMICALS Be careful not to expose the watch to solvents (e.g., alcohol and gasoline), mercury (i.e., from a broken thermometer), cosmetic spray, detergents, adhesives or paints. Otherwise, the case, bracelet, etc. may become discolored, deteriorated or damaged. ■ PRECAUTION REGARDING CASE BACK PROTECTIVE FILM If your watch has a protective film and/or a sticker on the case back, be sure to peel them off before using your watch. Otherwise, perspiration getting in under them may rust the case back. It is recommended that the watch be checked once every 2 to 3 years. Have your watch checked by an AUTHORIZED SEIKO DEALER or SERVICE CENTER to ensure that the case, buttons, gasket and crystal seal remain intact. 2-3 Years ■ LIQUID CRYSTAL PANEL The normal life expectancy for a liquid crystal panel is approximately 7 years. After 7 Years that it may decrease in contrast, becoming difficult to read. Please contact your AUTHORIZED SEIKO DEALER or SERVICE CENTER if you wish to have a new panel fitted (guaranteed one year). English ■ PERIODIC CHECK ■ STATIC ELECTRICITY The IC (Integrated Circuit) used in your watch will be affected by static electricity which may disturb the display. Keep your watch away from close contact with objects such as TV screens which emit strong static electricity. 29 English 30 SPECIFICATIONS 1 Frequency of crystal oscillator ..................... 32,768 Hz (Hz = Hertz … Cycles per second) 2 Accuracy␣ ................................................... ±0.0012% at normal temperature range (5˚C ~ 35˚C) (41˚F ~ 95˚F) 3 Operational temperature range .................
