3. Before Using
A. Radio Wave Receiving Function
<For Good Reception>
This watch incorporates an antenna for receiving radio waves inside the watch case (at
the 6:00 position). For good reception, it is recommended to have the 6:00 position of
the watch facing in the direction of the radio wave transmitter station when receiving
radio waves. The reception level varies depending on the environment in which the
watch is used. Try receiving radio waves while changing the orientation or location of
the watch while referring to the reception level of H, M or L. Find the location and
direction where radio waves are received
easily as indicated by H or M for the
Time mode (TME)
reception level.
[Note]
Radio waves can be received in the time
(TME) mode found at three locations on the
watch or the local time (L-TM) mode.
Radio waves cannot be received in other
modes.
16
· In order to receive radio waves properly, remove the watch from your wrist and place
it in a stable location that facilitates reception of radio waves such as in front of a
window. Do not move the watch during reception.
· Radio waves may be hard to receive due to blockage by metallic objects or the
environment. When inside a building and so on, reception should be performed as
close to a window as possible.
<Time Required for Receiving Radio Waves>
It takes from about 2 to 15 minutes to receive radio waves. If reception has failed due to
a poor reception environment and so forth, it may take about 60 seconds for the watch to
return to the normal display.
Local time mode
(L-TM)
17
<Locations where Reception may be Difficult>
It may not be possible to properly receive radio waves at locations susceptible to
generation of radio wave noise or under environmental conditions that cause difficulty in
receiving radio waves.
j Locations subject to extremely high or low temperatures
j Inside a reinforced concrete building, between tall buildings or in valleys between
mountains or underground
j In a car, train or airplane
j Near a cellular telephone in use
j Near high-tension wires (power lines), railroad overhead wires or airports
(communication facilities)
j Near household electric appliances or OA equipment such as TV sets, refrigerators,
personal computers, fax machines, etc.

4. Receiving Radio Waves
· There are three ways to receive radio waves consisting of regular automatic reception,
free reception and recovery automatic reception. The time (including daylight savings
time) and date are corrected automatically when radio waves have been properly received.
[Note] Do not move the watch until reception is completed.
1. Regular Automatic Reception
· The watch automatically begins to receive radio waves at 3:00 AM or 4:00 AM each day.
(Radio waves are not received at 4:00 AM if they have been successfully received at 3:00
AM.)
(1) When receiving radio waves, remove the watch from your wrist and place it in a stable
location where radio waves can be received easily such as by a window with the 6:00
position of the watch facing in the direction of the radio wave transmitter station.
(2) After the second hand has moved to the reception standby (RX) position, it moves to H,
M or L to indicate that reception of radio waves is in progress after which the watch
begins to receive radio waves.
(3) reception is completed, the second hand automatically moves from H, M or L to the
correct time.

2. Free Reception
· Free reception can be used to receive radio waves at any time.
(1) When receiving radio waves, remove the watch from your wrist and place it in a stable
location where radio waves can be received easily such as by a window with the 6:00
position of the watch facing in the direction of the radio wave transmitter station.
(2) Press button (B) at the 4:00 position for about 2 seconds or more. After the hearing the
confirmatory tone, release your finger after checking that the second hand has moved to
the standby position (RX) (12:00). The remainder of the procedure is the same as steps
(2) and (3) of the procedure for regular automatic reception (on the previous page).
When radio waves have been
received properly, the second
hand returns to one-second
interval movement and each
hand is automatically corrected to
the correct time. If radio waves
were unable to be received, the
watch returns to the time prior to
radio wave reception. Never
move the watch until the second
hand returns to one-second
interval movement.
21
B. Confirmation of Reception Result
· When button (B) is pressed once, the second hand moves to H, M, L or NO to enable

D. General Reference for Receiving Areas
The following provides a general reference for those areas where the watch is able to
receive standard time radio waves. These areas may vary as a result of changes in radio
rave reception conditions depending on the time period, seasonal variations and weather.
Since this map only provides a general reference of the areas where radio waves can be
received, there may be locations where radio waves cannot be received even if they are
within the range shown on the map.
Standard time radio wave
transmitter station
DCF77
Location of transmitter
station
Mainflingen, Germany (25
km southeast of Frankfurt)
General reference for areas where radio
waves can be received
Radius of about 900 km from radio wave
transmitter station (radio waves may not
be able to be received in the vicinity of
Lake Leman, Switzerland)
Although the standard time radio waves used by radio wave watches are transmitted
nearly continuously 24 hours a day, transmission may be interrupted for reasons such as
maintenance and inspections. This watch will continue to keep the correct time at an
accuracy of within ±15 seconds per month even if it is unable to receive standard time
radio waves.

13. Photoelectric Power Generation
Function
This watch uses a secondary battery to store electrical energy. Once fully charged, it will
continue to keep the correct time for about 6 months during normal use (when the Power
Save function is not activated). Furthermore, the watch will keep the correct time for about
1 year when the Power Save function is activated.
<For Optimum Use of this Watch>
In order to use this watch comfortably, try to keep the watch charged at all times. Charge
the watch by exposing the watch dial (containing the solar cell) to direct sunlight or light
from a fluorescent lamp.
<Try to Keep the Watch Charged at all Times>
· If you usually wear long sleeves, the fabric may cover the watch and prevent it from being
exposed to light resulting in the watch becoming insufficiently charged. Try to kept the
watch charged especially during winter months.
· When the watch is removed, try to place it next to a window or other location that allows
the dial to be exposed to sunlight. This will enable charging to continue and allow the
watch to continue to run properly at all times.

16. Solar-Powered Watch Handling
Precautions
CAUTION Charging Precautions
[Note]
Once fully charged, the watch has a continuous operating time of about six months
without further charging. When the Power Save function has been activated, the watch
will continue to keep time for about one year. However, if the watch stops running as a
result of being insufficiently charged, since a considerable amount of time is required to
charge so that it starts running again as is indicated in the table, try to charge the watch
everyday. It is recommended to charge the watch at least once a month by exposing to
direct sunlight.
64
· Charging the watch at high temperatures can cause deformation or discoloration of
external components as well as a malfunction of the components of the movement.
· Avoid charging the watch at high temperatures (about 60°C / 140°F or higher).
Examples:
· Charging by placing the watch too close to a light source that may become
hot such as an incandescent lamp or halogen lamp.
· Charging by placing the watch on an automobile dashboard that can easily
reach a high temperature.
· When charging the watch with an incandescent lamp, halogen lamp or other light
source that may reach a high temperature, always make sure to place the watch at
least 50 cm (20 in.) away from the light source to prevent the watch from reaching a
high temperature.
65
WARNING Handling the Secondary Battery
· Never attempt to remove the energy storage cell from the watch. If the energy
storage cell must unavoidably be removed, store it out of the reach of small children
to prevent accidental swallowing.
· If the energy storage cell should happen to be swallowed, consult a physician
immediately and seek medical attention.
WARNING Replacing the Energy Storage Cell
The tachymeter feature is used to measure traveling speed such as that of an automobile.
In the case of this watch, the average speed can be approximately determined for a
certain distance by measuring how many seconds it takes to travel 1 kilometer
(measuring range: maximum 60 seconds). To determine average speed, start the
chronograph simultaneous to the start of measurement. Stop the chronograph when the
vehicle has traveled 1 kilometer. An approximation of the average speed over that
distance can be determined by the position of the chronograph second hand at that time.

· Although it is not usually necessary to replace the secondary battery, there may be
rare cases in which it becomes necessary due to a problem with the secondary
battery. If it becomes necessary to replace the secondary battery, please have it
replaced promptly.
17. Using the Tachymeter (When Provided)
Example:
If it takes 45 seconds to travel 1
kilometer, then the average
speed over that distance is 80
kilometers/hour.

WARNING: Water-resistance performance
• Water-resistance for daily use (to 3 atmospheres): This type of watch is water-resistant to
minor exposure to water. For example, you may wear the watch while washing your face;
however, it is not designed for use underwater.
• Upgraded water-resistance for daily use (to 5 atmospheres): This type of watch is waterresistant to moderate exposure to water. You may wear the watch while swimming;
however, it is not designed for use while skin diving.
• Upgraded water-resistance for daily use (to 10/20 atmospheres): This type of watch may be
used for skin diving; however, it is not designed for scuba or saturated diving using helium
gas.
• If seawater enters the watch, place the watch in a box or plastic bag and immediately take it
in for repair. Otherwise, pressure inside the watch will increase, and parts (crystal, crown,
buttons, etc.) may come off.
CAUTION: Keep your watch clean.
• Leaving dust and dirt deposited between the case and crown may result in difficulty in
pulling the crown out. Rotate the crown while in its normal position, from time to time, to
loosen dust and dirt and then brush it off.
• Dust and dirt tend to be deposited in gaps in the back of the case or band.
Deposited dust and dirt may cause corrosion and soil your clothing. Clean the watch
occasionally.
CAUTION
• Be sure to use the watch with the crown pressed in (normal position). If your watch has a
screw-lock type crown, be sure to tighten the crown completely.
• Do NOT operate the crown or button with wet fingers or when the watch is wet. Water may
enter the watch and compromise water-resistance.
• If the watch is used in seawater, rinse with fresh water afterward and wipe with a dry cloth.
• If moisture has entered the watch, or if the inside of the crystal is fogged up and does not
become clear within a day, immediately take the watch to your dealer or Citizen Service
Center for repair. Leaving the watch in such a state will allow corrosion to form inside.
72
Cleaning the Watch
• Use a soft cloth to wipe off dirt, perspiration and water from the case and crystal .
• Use a soft, dry cloth to wipe off perspiration and dirt from the leather band.
• To clean a metal, plastic, or rubber watchband, wash away dirt with mild soap and water.
Use a soft brush to remove dust and dirt jammed in the gaps in the metal band. If your
watch is not water-resistant, take it to your dealer.
NOTE: Avoid using solvents (thinner, benzine, etc.), as they may damage the finish.
73
CAUTION: Operating environment
• Use the watch within the operating-temperature range specified in the instruction manual.
Using the watch where temperatures are outside the specified range, may result in
deterioration of functions or even stoppage of the watch.
• Do NOT use the watch in places where it is exposed to high temperature, such as in a sauna.
Doing so may result in a skin burn.
• Do NOT leave the watch in a place where it is exposed to high temperature, such as the
glove compartment or dash-board of a car.
Doing so may result in deterioration of the watch, such as deformation of plastic parts.
• Do NOT place the watch close to a magnet.
Timekeeping will become inaccurate if you place the watch close to magnetic health
equipment such as a magnetic necklace or a magnetic latch of a refrigerator door or handbag
clasp or the earphone of a mobile phone. If this has occurred, move the watch away from the
magnet and reset the time.
• Do NOT place the watch close to household appliances that generate static electricity.
Timekeeping may become inaccurate if the watch is exposed to strong static electricity, such
as is emitted from a TV screen.
• Do NOT subject the watch to a strong shock such as dropping it onto a hard floor.
• Avoid using the watch in an environment where it may be exposed to chemicals or corrosive
gases.
74
If solvents, such as thinner and benzine, or substances containing such solvents come in
contact with the watch, discoloration, melting, cracking, etc. may result. If the watch comes
in contact with mercury used in thermometers, the case, band or other parts may become
discolored.
Periodical inspections
Your watch needs inspection once in every two or three years for safety and long use.
To keep your watch water-resistant, the packing needs to be replaced regularly.
Other parts need to be inspected and replaced if necessary.
Ask for Citizen geuine parts upon replacement.
