1. FEATURES
This watch is a combination solar – powered watch that contains a solar cell in
its face that drives the watch hands, race time, chronograph, alarm and numerous
other functions by converting light energy into electrical energy.
It is also equipped with convenient functions including a power save mode that
reduces power consumption when light is not shining on the solar cell, UTC
(Coordinated Universal Time), and a world timer indicating the time and dates of
30 major cities around the world
2. BEFORE USING
This watch is a solar-powered watch. Before using, allow light to shine onto the watch so that it is
sufficiently charged.
An Eco Drive rechargeable battery is used in this watch to store electrical
energy. This rechargeable battery is a clean energy battery that does not contain
mercury or other toxic substances. Once fully charged, the watch will continue to
run for a maximum of 4 years without additional charging (when in the power save
2 mode).
[Proper Use of this Watch]
To use this watch comfortably, make sure to recharge it before it stops running
completely. There is no risk of overcharging the watch no matter how often it is
recharged (Overcharging Prevention Function).

[Insufficient Charging Warning Function]
(Analog Display)
Regardless of the display (Mode) of the watch at
the time, when the watch becomes insufficiently
charged, the watch changes to the time display and
the second hand begins to move at two-secondinterval movement. Although the 24-hour hand, hour
hand and minute hand continue to keep the correct
time, the watch stops after about 1.5 days have
elapsed after the insufficient charging warning
function is activated. When this happens, charge
the watch by exposing to light so that it returns
to one-second-interval movement.
However, if the watch again becomes insufficiently
charged without setting the time after it has been
sufficiently charged by exposing to light as a
result of having stopped due to being
insufficiently charged, it will not return to the
normal display unless the time is set after again
sufficiently charging.
(Digital Display)
"CHARGE" flashes on digital display area 2 in all modes.
<Digital Display in Each Mode>
The watch displays the normal time display regardless of the position of the
x
crown (pulled out to the first or second click) in each mode except for the
calendar mode.
When the watch is in the calendar mode, the normal date display is displayed
x
regardless of the position of the crown.
Notes:
Crown operations do not function <except for mode switching (with the crown
x
in the normal position)> in any of the modes.
x
Button operations do not function, except for changing the city name
(UP/DOWN), in any of the modes.
x
The alarm tone does not sound even if it is set.
x
The chronograph is interrupted and reset even if measurement is in progress.
Timing by the race timer is immediately interrupted even if timing is in
x
progress
x
In the case the watch switches to the insufficient charging warning function
as a result of being insufficiently charged, it takes a minimum of 30 minutes
for the watch to return to the normal operating state even if sufficiently
exposed to light.
<When the Insufficient Charging Warning Function is Canceled>
When the insufficient charging warning function is canceled as a result of
exposing the watch to light and sufficiently charging, the watch returns to the
mode indicated by the mode hand.

[Time Setting Warning Function]
(Analog Display)
The watch stops when insufficient
charging continues for about 1.5
days. When the watch is charged by
exposing to light after having
stopped due to insufficient
charging, each hand is rapidly
advanced to the base position and
stops. Each hand remains stopped
until the time is reset.
(Digital Display)

fully charged so that it is not charged further. This allows the user to charge
the watch without any risk of overcharging.
Return to Table of Contents
Return to Table of Contents
[Power Save 1]
When power is not generated as a result of the solar cell not being exposed to
light, the second hand stops when it reaches the zero seconds position and the
watch automatically enters the power save state to inhibit power consumption of
the secondary battery.
(Analog Display)
• The second hand stops at the base position (12:00).
• Other hands continue to keep the correct time.
(Digital Display)
x
In coordination with the analog second hand stopping at the zero seconds
position, the entire digital display goes out. However, the alarm,
chronograph and other functions continue to measure time internally even
though there is no display.
<Canceling Power Save 1>
Power Save 1 is canceled when power generation resumes as a result of exposing
the solar cell to light.

19. NOTES REGARDING HANDLING OF THIS WATCH
<Try to keep the watch charged at all times>
x Please note that if you routinely wear long sleeves, the watch can easily
become insufficiently charged as a result of it being concealed and unable
to be exposed to light.
x When you take the watch off, try to place it in as bright location as
possible to ensure that it always keeps the correct time.
Notes: Charging Precautions
x Avoid recharging at high temperature (over about 60OC/1400F) since this may
result in dam- age to the watch as a result of reaching excessively high
temperatures. Examples: Charging the watch in close proximity to an
incandescent lamp, halogen lamp or other light source that can easily reach
high temperatures, charging the watch in a location that reaches high
temperatures such as on a car dashboard.
x When charging the watch with an incandescent lamp, always make sure the
watch is at least 50 cm (20 in.) away from the lamp so that it does not
reach excessively high temperatures during charging.

PRECAUTIONS ABOUT CARE AND
HANDLING OF WATCHES
TEMPERATURE CARE
Avoid temperature extremes. Exposing your watch to high
temperatures, such as placing it on the dashboard of a vehicle
or use in a hot tub, may cause the watch to malfunction,
shorten battery life or damage certain components. Leaving
the watch in extreme cold temperatures may cause irregular
timekeeping until the watch returns to normal operating
temperature.
SHOCK-RESISTANT
The watch may be worn while playing golf or other activities,
but avoid severe shocks such as dropping it on a hard surface.
MAGNETIC-RESISTANT
No problem should occur from using the watch around
ordinary household electric appliances such as TV sets or
stereos. Keep away from magnets.
CHEMICAL/GAS RESISTANT
Do not expose the watch to chemicals or gases for long
periods.
WATCH CLEANING
Stains, waterspots and accumulated dirt on the case, crystal
or band should be removed with a soft cloth to prevent
damage and premature wear.
HANDLING OF WATER-RESISTANT WATCHES
Although water-resistant watches are warranted, steps should
be taken to avoid damage that may result from
accidents or mishandling:
■ Do not operate the crown or push-button in the water or
while the watch is wet. Tighten screw lock crown completely.
■ Should the watch become immersed in water, dry it off
right away. If the watch comes in contact with salt water, be
sure to rinse it thoroughly in warm fresh water to remove any
trace of salt.
■ If a watch is wet from cleaning or by accident, never store it
in a closed container. It should be dried immediately or taken
to a watchmaker or jeweler if moisture is inside the case to
prevent damage from rust.
■ Vital components necessary to resist the entrance of
moisture deteriorate with time and use. Gaskets, crowns and
other materials should be replaced every year or two to ensure
Marking
on the Dial
Marking
on the
Caseback
that water resistant quality remains at factory specifications.
CARE FOR METAL BRACELETS
To extend the life and maintain the good appearance of the
metal watch bracelet, the following recommendations are
given:
■ Be aware that since the watch and bracelet is worn next to
the skin, it collects dust and perspiration and becomes soiled if
not cleaned regularly. This is particularly true of the inner parts
of the links or mesh of the bracelet.
■ Soil and rust, when present in a bracelet, are dissolved by
perspiration and can cause staining of cuffs and
irritation of the skin in some instances.
■ Heavy perspiration should be wiped off the watch and
bracelet with a soft dry cloth. The bracelet should be cleaned
occasionally by using an old toothbrush and warm soapy
water after which the soap is thoroughly rinsed with clear water
and the bracelet dried completely. The foregoing manner of
cleaning should not be done if the watch is not water-resistant
but should instead be done by your jeweler.
CARE FOR STRAPS
LEATHER
■ Heavy perspiration, if not removed from a leather strap, can
wash out the natural oils and cause the leather to become dry
and deteriorate. Any moisture should be blotted with a soft dry
cloth or paper towel and the strap allowed to dry naturally.
■ Salt residue and soil can be removed from the leather by
cleaning with a dampened soft cloth and mild soap or saddle
soap.
■ Occasionally, the inside surface of the strap should be
cleaned by using a soft cloth dampened with alcohol.
■ The strap should always be worn a little loosely (one finger
space between wrist and strap) to allow air to circulate thus
causing any moisture to evaporate.
RUBBER
■ Rubber straps should be washed frequently with mild soap
and warm water using a soft brush.
■ Thorough cleaning, using the same method, should
especially be done after use in salt water.
■ Solvents, oils, perspiration, tanning lotion and salt can cause
rubber to deteriorate if not removed.

Water Resistance
The water-resistant quality of our timepieces is offered in varying degrees depending on the model. This
ranges from non-water resistant models to those suitable for SCUBA diving. Water resistance of our
timepieces is measured in BAR or Barometric Pressure. Each BAR of pressure is equal to 14.5 pounds per
square inch of pressure.
Water resistance is measured when the watch is at a static, or motionless state. As the watch is moved in
water, such as from the motion of swimming, pressure is added from velocity. While you may be swimming in
a pool at surface level, the watch may be experiencing forces equal to that of 100 feet of water pressure
(3 BAR). Diving into a pool can cause forces on the watch to exceed those pressures. As such, you
should always allow a margin of safety when exposing your watch to moisture. Never "push the limit" of
the degree of water resistance of your timepiece.
A primary factor to keep in mind about water resistance is that periodic maintenance is needed to
maintain original factory specifications for water resistance. When a watch is new, it meets
specifications for water resistance as indicated on the case back. However, as the watch ages, the
gaskets that seal the watch become dry and brittle, diminishing its water resistant quality. Exposure to
environments such as chlorinated pools, salt water or soaps from showering can accelerate drying of the
gaskets. We recommend that the gaskets be changed at least every 18 to 24 months to maintain the water
resistant quality of your timepiece. If the watch is frequently exposed to chlorinated pools, soaps salt
water, etc., we recommend that the gaskets be changed on a yearly basis.
From time to time, you may notice condensation that appears then goes away after a short period of time.
This is a normal occurrence and happens primarily from sudden temperature changes. When there are sudden
temperature changes such as entering a cool building from the hot out of doors, or jumping into pool on a
hot day the watch may fog. Conversely, if you go to the cold outdoors from a warm building, fogging may
occur. As long as the fogging clears in a short period of time, there is no need for concern.
Be sure the crown is completely pushed in prior to any contact with moisture. If your model is equipped
with a screw down crown, be sure it is properly seated against the case. Do not operate the crown or any
push button when the watch is wet as this may allow the entrance of moisture. . If at anytime, you notice
moisture in your timepiece that does not clear in a short period of time, you should send your timepiece
as soon as possible to the nearest Authorized Service Center for inspection.
You can determine the level of water resistance of our watches from the markings on your case-back.
Additionally, models that are water resistant to 100 or 200 meters have an indication on the dial as
well. The case-backs and dials are normally marked as follows:
The case back has no indication of water resistance
This indicates the watch is a non water-resistant model and is not designed for contact with moisture at
all. Caution should be exercised to avoid any contact with moisture, such as when washing your hands or
from a rainstorm.
“Water Resist”
This watch is designed to withstand water from accidental splashing, such as from washing your hands or
rain. Any submersion into water may result in the entrance of moisture.
“Water Resist 10BAR” or “W.R. 10BAR”, Dial marked “WR100”
This watch is designed to withstand water pressure up to 333 feet. This includes water exposure from
accidental splashing and rain, but also from showering, swimming in a pool and snorkeling. Be sure to
rinse the watch with fresh water after exposure to a chlorinated pool, salt water, soaps, etc. After
rinsing with fresh water, be sure to dry the exterior with a soft cloth.
“Water Resist 20BAR” or “W.R. 20BAR”, Dial marked “WR200”
This watch is designed to withstand water pressure up to 666 feet. This includes all exposure to water up
to and including recreational SCUBA diving. Be sure to rinse the watch with fresh water after exposure to
a chlorinated pool, salt water, soaps, etc. After rinsing with fresh water, be sure to dry the exterior
with a soft cloth.
Special Note about Jacuzzis and Hot Tubs
The various components used in the manufacture and assembly of your watch expand at various rates. This
results in a loss of the sealing capabilities of gaskets, which may allow moisture to enter. In addition,
heat from these sources can cause deformation of certain materials leading to mechanical failures. For
these reasons, you should remove your watch before entering a hot tub or Jacuzzi.
