CHARACTERISTICS OF A MECHANICAL WATCH
English
CAL. 8R39
(self-winding type, automatic winding type)
● This mechanical watch operates using power obtained from a mainspring.
● If the watch is completely stopped, manually turn the crown approximately 20
times to wind up the mainspring to start the watch.
● While loss/gain of a quartz watch is indicated by a monthly or annual rate,
accuracy of a mechanical watch is normally indicated by a daily rate (loss/gain
per day).
● Normal usage accuracy of a mechanical watch varies according to conditions of
use (time period that the watch is worn on the wrist, temperature environment,
hand movement, and winding state of the mainspring).
● When the watch is affected by strong magnetism, it temporarily gains or loses
time. If the watch encounters a strong magnetic field, the parts of the watch may
be magnetized. In this case, repairs such as removal of magnetism are required.
Contact the retailer from whom the watch was purchased.

This watch is an automatic watch equipped with a manual winding mechanism.
• When the watch is worn on the wrist, the motion of the wearer's arm winds the
mainspring of the watch.
• If your watch is completely stopped, it is recommended that you manually wind
the mainspring by turning the crown.

* Turning the crown counterclockwise (the
6 o’clock direction) does not wind the
mainspring.
2. C on tinu e to tur n the c row n un til the
mainspring is sufficiently wound. The small
second hand will start moving.
3. Set the time and date before putting the
watch on your wrist.
The position or design of the displays may differ depending on the model.
9
English
HOW TO SET THE TIME AND DATE
• Check that the watch is operating, and then set the time and date.
• The watch is provided with a date function and is designed so that the date
changes once every 24 hours. The date changes around 12 o’clock midnight. If
AM/PM is not properly set, the date will change around 12 o’clock noon.
English
* There is no need to turn the crown further when the mainspring is fully wound. But
the crown can be turned without damaging the watch mechanism.
* Once the watch is wound up fully, it operates for about 45 hours. However, when
the stopwatch is used continuously for a certain period, the watch may not operate
for as long as 45 hours.
* If the watch is used without being wound up fully, gain or loss of the watch may
result. To avoid this, wear the watch for more than 10 hours a day. If the watch
is used without being worn on the wrist (if it is used on the desk like a clock, for
example), make sure to wind it up fully every day at a fixed time.
* If the watch has stopped with the mainspring unwound, winding the mainspring
with the crown will not start the watch immediately. This is because the mainspring
torque (force) is low at the beginning of its winding due to the characteristics of
mechanical watches. The small second hand starts to move when a certain degree
of strong torque is reached after the mainspring has been wound up. However,
swinging the watch from side to side to forcibly turn the balance can start the watch
sooner.
1. Pull out the crown to the first click. (The small
second hand continues moving and the accuracy
of the watch is unimpaired.)
2. T he da te c an b e s e t by turning the c row n
counterclockwise. Turn it until the previous day’s
date appears.
Ex.)If today is the 6th of the month, first set
t h e d a t e t o ”5” b y t u r n i n g t h e c r o w n
counterclockwise.
CAUTION
• Do not set the date between 8:00 p.m. and 2:00 a.m. If you do so, the date
may not change properly on the following day or malfunction of the watch
may occur.
10
11
English
●Date adjustment at the beginning of the month
It is necessary to adjust the date on the first day after a month that has less than
31 days.
Ex.) To adust the date in the a.m. period on the first
day of a month following a 30-day month.
English
3. Pull out the crown to the second click when the small second hand is at the 12
o’clock position. (The small second hand stops on the spot.)
Turn the crown to advance the hands until the date changes to the next. The time
is now set for the a.m. period. Advance the hands to set the correct time.
4. Push the crown back in to the normal position in accordance with a time
signal.
1. The watch displays “31” instead of "1". Pull out
the crown to the first click.
2. Turn the crown to set the date to “1” and
then push the crown back in to the normal
position.
CAUTION
• The mechanism of mechanical watches is different from that of quartz
watches.
When setting the time, make sure to turn back the minute hand a little
behind the desired time and then advance it to the exact time.
12
CAUTION
• Do not set the date between 8:00 p.m. and 2:00 a.m. If you do so, the
date may not change properly on the following day or malfunction of the
watch may occur.

English
This watch features a stopwatch function which can measure up to 12 hours.
• A chronograph refers to a watch that has a stopwatch function in addition to a
time display function.
• Before using the stopwatch, make sure that the center stopwatch hand is pointing
at the 0 position. If it is not pointing at the 0 position, press the Button B to correct
the position of the center stopwatch hand.
• Before using the stopwatch, make sure that the mainspring is sufficiently
wound.

The stopwatch minute hand completes a full rotation in 30 minutes. The correct
indication of the stopwatch minute hand is determined in connection with the
position of the stopwatch hour hand.
<Between 0 and 29 minutes>
Stopwatch minute hand
To prevent accidental rotation, the rotating bezel is so designed that rotation
becomes harder in water. Also for safty's sake, it roatates only counterclockwise,
so that the time measured is never shorter than the actual elapsed time.
<Between 30 and 59 minutes>
1. Turn the rotating bezel to align its "
" mark with the minute hand.
* The rotating bezel rotates with clicks. With each click, it turns half a minute.
2. To know the elapsed time, read the number on the rotating bezel that the minute
hand points to.
Stopwatch minute hand
"20 min."
The rotating bezel can show the elapsed time up to 60 minutes. By setting it before
diving, you can know how many minutes you are underwater.

PLACES TO KEEP YOUR WATCH
LumiBrite is a luminous paint that is completely harmless to human beings and the natural
environment, containing no noxious materials such as radioactive substances.
LumiBrite is a newly-developed luminous paint that absorbs the light 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.
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.
● Do not leave the watch in a place where the temperature drops below 5 °C (41 ° F)
or rises above 35 °C (95 °F) for a long time.
< Reference data on luminance >
● Do not leave the watch in close contact with hot spring water.

English
SPECIFICATIONS
● The accuracy of mechanical watches is indicated by the daily rates of one week
or so.
● The accuracy of mechanical watches may not fall within the specified range of
time accuracy because of loss/gain changes due to the conditions of use, such as
the length of time during which the watch is worn on the wrist, arm movement,
whether the mainspring is wound up fully or not, etc.
● The key components in mechanical watches are made of metals which expand
or contract depending on temperatures due to metal properties. This exerts an
effect on the accuracy of the watches. Mechanical watches tend to lose time at
high temperatures while they tend to gain time at low temperatures.
● In order to improve accuracy, it is important to regularly supply energy to the
balance that controls the speed of the gears. The driving force of the mainspring
that powers mechanical watches varies between when it is fully wound and
immediately before it is unwound. As the mainspring unwinds, the force
weakens.
Relatively steady accuracy can be obtained by wearing the watch on the wrist
frequently for the self-winding type and winding up the mainspring fully everyday
at a fixed time to move it regularly for the wind-up mechanical type.
● When affected by strong external magnetism, a mechanical watch may loss/gain
time temporarily. The parts of the watch may become magnetized depending on
the extent of the effect. In such a case, consult the retailer from whom the watch
was purchased since the watch requires repair, including demagnetizing.
