PRECAUTIONS FOR DIVING
CAUTION
Diving is an inherently hazardous form of recreation and it is essential that you
strictly observe all instructions for use and maintenance of the watch set forth in
this booklet for safety’s sake. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DIVE USING THIS WATCH
UNLESS YOU HAVE BEEN PROPERLY TRAINED IN DIVING.
Do not use the watch for saturation diving using helium gas.
BEFORE DIVING
● Check that:
• the watch operates normally.
• the crown is locked tightly in place.
• there are no visible cracks in the crystal or the watch band.
• the strap or bracelet is securely fastened to the watch case.
• the buckle keeps the strap or bracelet firmly secured to the wrist.
• the rotating bezel turns counterclockwise smoothly (the rotation must not be too loose or too
tight) and the “
” mark aligns with the minute hand.
• the time and date are properly indicated.
• the second hand is moving at one-second intervals.
12
If there are any malfunctions, we recommend that you contact an AUTHORIZED SEIKO SERVICE
CENTER.
WHILE DIVING
English
● Do not operate the crown when the watch is wet or in water.
● Take care not to hit the watch against hard objects such as rocks.
● Bezel rotation may become slightly harder in the water but this is not a malfunction.
AFTER DIVING
● After checking that the crown is screwed in completely, rinse the watch in fresh water, and wash out
all seawater, soil, sand, etc.
● After cleaning the watch in fresh water, be sure to wipe it thoroughly dry to prevent possible rust on
the case.
13
English
NOTES ON USING THE WATCH
TIME/DATE SETTING
● When setting the date, turn the crown counterclockwise to advance the date and clockwise to move
it back. The date changes one day by turning the hour hand two full circles.
● The date changes between 11:45 p.m. and 0:30 a.m. while the watch is in operation and between 9:00
p.m. and 3:00 a.m. when it is changed manually by turning the hands. Therefore, note the following.
[AM/PM checking]
When setting the hour hand, check that AM/PM is correctly set.
* When setting the time by advancing the hands, turn the hour hand past the 3 o’clock marker. If the
date advances, the time is set for the AM period. If it does not change, the time is set for the PM
period.
* When setting the time by turning back the hands, turn the hour hand past the 9 o’clock marker. If
the date moves back, the time is set for the PM period. If it does not change, the time is set for
the AM period.
[Setting the time between 9:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m.]
* If the time is adjusted to the time period between 9:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m., the date may not change
properly. The watch, however, will indicate the date properly after 3:00 a.m.
* To prevent this from occurring, first turn back the hour hand past 9:00 p.m., checking that the date
moves back to the previous day, and then, advance the hands to the desired time.
● When setting the minute hand, advance it 4 to 5 minutes ahead of the desired time and then turn it
back to the exact time.
HOW TO CHECK THE CALENDAR
14
● If the crown is pulled out to the second click instead of the first click and pushed back in to the normal
position, the watch will not show the calendar.
● Do not leave the crown at the first or second click when you use the watch, as this will shorten the
battery life.
English
● Note on the leap second
One day normally is said to consist of 86,400 seconds. In fact, it can be longer or shorter than
this because of irregular changes in the rotation cycle of the earth. When the accumulated
fluctuations in the length of a day total plus or minus one second, one second must then be
added or subtracted as a correction factor. This is known as a “leap second”.
The leap second correction is executed every year or two simultaneously throughout the
world on the basis of information collected by astronomical observatories all over the world.
The correction is effected between 11:59'59" p.m. and 0:00'00" a.m. GMT either on December
31 or on June 30, during which one second is added or subtracted.
When this happens, please adjust your watch accordingly.
Please refer to your newspaper for information on the leap second.
LUMIBRITETM
LumiBrite is a newly developed luminous paint that is completely harmless to human beings and
the natural environment, containing no noxious materials such as radioactive substances.
LumiBrite absorbs the energy of sunlight or artificial light in a short time and stores it to emit
light in the dark.
For example, if exposed to a light of more than 500 lux for approximately 10 minutes, LumiBrite
can emit light for 5 to 8 hours.
Please note, however, that, as LumiBrite emits the light it stores, the luminance level of the light
decreases gradually over time. The duration of the emitted light may also differ slightly depending
on such factors as the brightness of the place where the watch is exposed to light and the distance
from the light source to the watch.
When you make a dive in dark water, LumiBrite may not emit light unless it has absorbed and
stored light sufficiently.
15
English
Before diving, therefore, be sure to expose the watch to light under the conditions specified
above, so that it fully absorbs and stores light energy. Otherwise, use the watch together with an
underwater flashlight.
< Reference data on luminance >
(A) Sunlight
[Fine weather]: 100,000 lux
[Cloudy weather]: 10,000 lux
(B) Indoor (Window side during daytime)
[Fine weather]: more than 3,000 lux
[Cloudy weather]: 1,000 to 3,000 lux
[Rainy weather]: less than 1,000 lux
(C) Lighting apparatus (40-watt daylight fluorescent light)
[Distance to the watch: 1 m]: 1,000 lux
[Distance to the watch: 3 m]: 500 lux (average room luminance)
[Distance to the watch: 4 m]: 250 lux
* “LUMIBRITE” is a trademark of SEIKO CORPORATION.

BATTERY CHANGE
Years
The miniature battery which powers your watch should last approximately
8 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 CR2412 battery.
English
8
* For safety’s sake, the watch will also undergo a strict check at the time of battery change. In addition to
battery change, water resistant quality of the watch is checked and the gasket will be replaced with a new
one if necessary. Therefore, it will take approximately 10 days before the watch is returned to you, and
the checking may be made at cost.
* If the watch is left with the crown at the first or second click, if the calendar checking function is used
frequently, and/or if the watch is left in temperatures outside the normal temperature range (5° C ~ 35°
C or 41° F ~ 95° F) for a long time, the battery life may be less than the specified period.
● Expected time for battery change
• To show when the battery must be replaced, the expected time (month and year)
for the first battery change is inscribed on the case back as shown in the illustration
on the next page.
• When replacing the battery, we recommend that you contact an AUTHORIZED
SEIKO SERVICE CENTER. In that case, after every battery change, a new “●” mark
will be inscribed on the case back at the position corresponding to the next battery
change time. Be sure to check the mark before using your watch again.

English
Ex.) Expected time for battery change: April through June, 2007

● Battery life indicator
When the second hand starts moving at two-second intervals instead of the normal
one-second interval, replace the battery with a new one as soon as possible.
Otherwise, the watch will stop operating in two weeks.
18
* For safety’s sake, never use the watch for diving while the second hand is moving at two-second
intervals.
* When you make a long voyage, check the expected time for battery change referring to “● Expected
time for battery change” above, and replace the battery with a new one if necessary before setting off.
* The time accuracy is not affected even if the second hand is moving at two-second intervals.
* While the second hand is moving at two-second intervals, the date will not change and the watch will
not show the calendar even if the crown is pulled out to the first click.
English
* If the watch is left in very low temperatures, the second hand may temporarily start moving at two-second
intervals and the date does not change to the next. When the watch returns to normal temperature,
however, this condition will be corrected and the correct date will be displayed on the next day.
If the second hand still moves at two-second intervals and the date does not change properly, replace
the battery with a new one.
● Checking and adjustment of the calendar after battery change
The calendar function is not affected by battery changes. However, after the battery
is replaced with a new one, be sure to check that the calendar is correct. (See “HOW
TO CHECK THE CALENDAR”)
If the watch does not indicate the leap year, month and date correctly, have the watch
adjusted by an AUTHORIZED SEIKO DEALER.
WARNING
● 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.
CAUTION
● Never short-circuit, heat or otherwise tamper with the battery, and never
expose it to fire. The battery may burst, become very hot or catch fire.
● The battery is not rechargeable. Never attempt to recharge it, as this may cause
battery leakage or damage to the battery.
