[Notes]
• If the date is corrected when the time on the watch is between 9:00 PM and 12:00
AM, the date may not change on the following day. Avoid correcting the date
during this time.
• The calendar operates based on a 31-day month. Correct the date by turning the
crown to the to the left to set to the first day of the following month in months
with less than 31 days (months with 30 days and February).
• Avoid correcting the month when the date hand indicates a date from the 31st to
the 2nd. If you want to correct the month during this time, wait until the date
hand is outside the range of the 31st to the 2nd. Then reset the date hand to the
correct date.
• When turning the crown to the left (counter-clockwise) when correcting the time
or day, the changing of the date may change a day late during normal use.

2-second interval movement
Sufficiently charge the watch by exposing to light until the watch hands begin to move.
17
<Insufficient Charge Warning Feature>
<Overcharging Prevention Feature>
When the watch becomes insufficiently charged, the
second hand begins 2-second interval movement to
indicate that the watch is insufficiently charged.
2 seconds
• Although the watch continues to run normally at this
2 seconds
time, the watch will stop after about 4 days have passed
since the watch has become insufficiently charged.
Charge the watch by exposing to light to return to the original 1-second interval
movement. Sufficiently charge the watch even after it has returned to 1-second
interval movement to ensure that it can be used comfortably. There is no risk of
overcharging since the watch is provided with an overcharging prevention feature.
• Although the watch will begin to run again when exposed to light after it has
stopped due to being insufficiently charged, since the time is incorrect, reset the time
after sufficiently charging the watch.
When the secondary battery becomes fully charged as a result of exposing the watch dial
(solar cell) to light, the overcharging prevention feature is activated automatically to
prevent the battery from being charged further. Consequently, there is no degradation in
the performance of the solar cell or secondary battery no matter how often the watch is
charged. This lets you expose the watch to light without worrying about overcharging.
18
<Quick Start Feature>
The watch will stop running if it is not charged at all. The watch hands will begin to
move after about 10 seconds when the watch is exposed to light. (The time until the
hands begin to move varies depending on the model of the watch and the intensity of the
light.) However, please note that the watch may stop again since it will not be
adequately charged if the light is blocked at this time.
19
6. General Reference for Charging Times
The time required for charging varies according to the model of the watch (color of the
dial, etc.). The following times are shown below to serve only as a reference.
* Charging time refers to the amount of time the watch is continuously exposed to light.

[Note]
• Once fully charged, the watch will continue to run for about 6 months with any
additional charging. As shown in the table above, a considerable amount of time is
required until the watch starts running once the watch has stopped as a result of
being insufficiently charged. Try to keep your watch sufficiently charged at all
times by charging everyday.
Furthermore, it is recommended to charge your watch by exposing to direct sunlight
once a month.
Full charging time: Time required for charging the watch from the stopped state to fully charged.
Charging time for 1 day of operation: Time required for charging the watch to run for 1 day at 1-second
interval movement.

7. Solar-Powered Watch Handling Precautions
[Try to keep the watch charged at all times]
Please note that if you frequently wear long sleeves, the watch can easily become
insufficiently charged because of being hidden and not exposed to light. When you take
the watch off, try to place in as bright a location as possible so that it will always be
charged and continue to run properly at all times.
Charging Precautions
• Avoid charging the watch at high temperatures (about 60°C / 140°F or higher) since
allowing the watch to reach a high temperature during charging can cause a
malfunction.
• 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.
Handling of Secondary Battery
• Never attempt to remove the secondary battery from the watch.
• If the secondary battery must unavoidably be removed, store it out of the reach of
small children to prevent accidental swallowing.
• If the secondary battery should happen to be swallowed, consult a physician
immediately and seek medical attention.
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.
22
23
Only Use the Specified Secondary Battery
• Never use a secondary battery other than the genuine secondary battery used in this
watch. Even if another type of secondary battery is installed in the watch, the watch
structure does not permit its operation. In cases in which a different secondary
battery such as a silver battery is forcibly installed in the watch and charged,
overcharging may occur that will eventually cause the secondary battery to rupture.
This can result in the risk of the watch being damaged or injury to the wearer.
• When the secondary battery is replaced, always make sure to use the specified
secondary battery.
8. Replacing the Secondary Battery
9. Precautions
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.
Unlike ordinary silver batteries, the secondary battery used in this watch does not have
to be periodically replaced due to repeated charging and discharging.
24
25
For correct use within the design limits of the watch, confirm the level of waterresistance of your watch, as indicated on the dial and case, and consult the table.
WARNING: Water-resistance performance
There are several types of water-resistant watches, as shown
in the following table.

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.
• 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.
28
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.
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 mar the finish.
29
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.
30
• 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.
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.
