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.
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.
When wearing the watch,
makes 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-17)
if its face is blocked by
your sleeve even only
partially.
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.
Checking the Current Power Level
Certain functions will be disabled when the power level is low. If the power level is
low, leave the watch in a location where its face (solar panel) is exposed to light.
E-12
E-13
Low Power
@
Low power conditions are indicated by the movement of
the x Second Hand in the Timekeeping Mode.
x If the x Second Hand is moving normally at one-second
intervals, power is at Level 1.
x If the x Second Hand is moving at two-second intervals,
power is at Level 2, which is quite low. Expose the watch
to light as soon as possible so it can charge.

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.
x When the watch is at Level 3, exposing it to light for a while will cause the x Second
Hand to move to the position of second 57. This indicates that charging has started.
Power Recovery Mode
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 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.

Radio Controlled Atomic Timekeeping
This watch receives a time calibration signal and updates its time setting accordingly.
However, when using the watch outside of areas covered by time calibration signals,
you will have to adjust the settings manually as required. See “Configuring Current
Time and Day Settings Manually” (page E-39) for more information.
This section explains how the watch updates its time settings when the city code
selected as the Home City is in Japan, North America, Europe, or China, and is one
that supports time calibration signal reception.
E-17
If your Home City Code setting is this:
The watch can receive the signal from
the transmitter located here:
LON (LONDON), PAR (PARIS), ATH (ATHENS)
Anthorn (England), Mainflingen
(Germany)
HKG (HONG KONG)
Shangqiu City (China)
TYO (TOKYO)
Fukushima (Japan), Fukuoka/Saga
(Japan)
HNL (HONOLULU), ANC (ANCHORAGE),
LAX (LOS ANGELES), DEN (DENVER),
CHI (CHICAGO), NYC (NEW YORK)
Fort Collins, Colorado (United States)
Important!
x The areas covered by HNL (HONOLULU) and ANC (ANCHORAGE) are quite far
from the calibration signal transmitters, so certain conditions may cause reception
problems.

STD/DST Switching
You can select summer time or standard time independently for each city. The initial
default setting for all cities is AT (AUTO).
Normally you should use the AT (AUTO) setting because it automatically switches
between summer time and standard time. You should change the setting to STD
(standard time) or DST (summer time) in the following cases.
− When using a time of a location that is not included in the watch’s list of 29 cities
− When the preset AUTO standard time/summer time timing is incorrect for some
reason
Daylight Saving Time (DST)
Daylight Saving Time (summer time) advances the time setting by one hour from
Standard Time. Remember that not all countries or even local areas use Daylight
Saving Time.
x Note that you cannot switch between STD (standard time) and DST (daylight
saving time) while UTC* is selected as your Home City.
* Coordinated Universal Time, the world-wide scientific standard of timekeeping. The
reference point for UTC is Greenwich, England.

and then pull it out again.
Correcting the Temperature Reading
The temperature sensor of this watch is adjusted at the factory and so further
adjustment is not required by you. However, if you notice that the readings produced
by the watch are different from readings produced by another instrument, you can use
the procedure in this section to make corrections. You also can use this procedure to
clear a correction.
E-49
Operation Guide 5240
Important!
x The watch will not be able to produce correct temperature readings if you make a
mistake during the correction procedure. Check to make sure that the value you
use for correction produces correct temperature readings.
x Before performing the following procedure, remove the watch from your wrist and
leave it for about 20 or 30 minutes to allow the case temperature to become the
same as the air temperature.
1. While the hands are indicating a temperature reading, pull out the crown.
2. Rotate the crown to adjust the temperature setting.
Holding down A and B at the same time will return the temperature reading to the
factory default setting.
x Each rotation of the crown moves the hands by 1°C (2°F).
x You can adjust the temperature reading within the range of –10 to 60°C (or 14
to 140°F).
Important!
x To cancel a temperature reading correction setting, hold down A and B at the
same time. The watch will beep.
3. Push the crown back in.
x After about ten seconds, regular timekeeping will resume.
Important!

Adjusting Home Positions
Manual Home Position Adjustment
Strong magnetism or impact can cause the hands and/or day indicator setting to be
off, even if the watch is able to perform the time calibration signal receive operation.
Perform the procedure in this section if auto home position adjustment is not possible
for some reason.
x Hand home position adjustment is not required if the time and day settings are
correct.
Auto Home Position Adjustment
Auto correction of hand home positions corrects the hand position automatically.
x Auto correction is performed in the Timekeeping Mode only.
x Auto correction corrects the positions of all hands. For the day Indicator, you must
perform the manual adjustment procedure under “To adjust home positions” (page
E-70).
x If the v Upper Dial Hand is 12 hours off of the current correct time, correct the

Troubleshooting
x The time setting is being adjusted following a successful auto time calibration
signal receive operation (page E-18).
Hand Movement and Position
■ I lost track of what mode the watch is in.
Refer to “Mode Reference Guide” (page E-30). To return directly to the Timekeeping
Mode, hold down C at least two seconds.
■ Hands suddenly stop moving. Button operation also is disabled.
The watch may be in the power recovery mode (page E-15). 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 x Second Hand is moving at two-second intervals.
■ All the watch’s hands are stopped at 12 o’clock and none of the buttons work
(x Second Hand stopped at 57, 58, 59, or 00).
Power may be low. Expose the watch to light until the x Second Hand starts moving
normally, at one-second intervals (page E-14).
■ 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-17).
■ The current time setting is off by hours.
x Your Home City setting may be wrong. Check your Home City setting and correct it,
if necessary (page E-34).
■ The current time setting is off by one hour.
x If you are using the watch in an area where time calibration signal reception is
possible, see “To configure Home City settings” (page E-34).
E-72
E-73
x The period when summer time is applied in the location where you are using the
watch may be different from the period set for your currently selected Home City.
Use the procedure under “To switch between standard time and summer time
manually” (page E-37) to switch from AT (AUTO) to STD (for standard time) or DST
(for summer time).
■ The time and date settings 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 indicator alignment. Adjust the
watch’s hand and day indicator home position alignment (page E-68).
Sensor
■ Temperature measurement error occurs.
This indicates that there is a problem with the sensor or the
watch’s internal circuitry, making sensor measurement and
value correction impossible.
x If the error message appears during a measurement,
restart the measurement. If the error message appears
when you restart the measurement, it probably means
that there is a problem with the sensor or internal
circuitry.
E-74
E-75
Charging
■ The watch does not resume operation after I expose it to light.
This can happen after the power level drops to Level 3 (page E-14). Continue
exposing the watch to light until the x Second Hand starts moving normally (at onesecond intervals).
■ The x 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.
