■CAUTIONS FOR ACCURACY
■HANDLING CAUTIONS
WARNING
To indicate the risks of serious consequences such as severe injuries
unless the following safety regulations are strictly observed.
Immediately stop wearing the watch in the following cases.
○ If the watch body or band becomes edged by corrosion etc.
○ If the pins protrude from the band.
※ Immediately consult the retailer from whom the watch was purchased or
SEIKO CUSTOMER SERVICE CENTER.
Keep the watch and accessories out of the reach of
babies and children.
Care should be taken to prevent a baby or a child accidentally swallowing the
accessories. If a baby or child swallows the battery or accessories, immediately
consult a doctor, as it will be harmful to the health of the baby or child.
WARNING
Do not use the watch in scuba diving or
saturation diving.
The various tightened inspections under simulated harsh environment, which
are usually required for watches designed for scuba diving or saturation
diving, have not been conducted on the water-resistant watch with the BAR
(barometric pressure) display. For diving, use special watches for diving.
2
To indicate the risks of light injuries or material damages unless
the following safety regulations are strictly observed.
Avoid wearing or storing the watch in the following places.
○ Places where volatile agents (cosmetics such as polish remover, bug
repellent, thinners etc.) are vaporizing
○ Places where the temperature drops below 5 ºC or rises above 35 ºC for a long time
○ Places of high humidity ○ Places affected by strong magnetism or static electricity
○ Dusty places
○ Places affected by strong vibrations
English
○ Normal usage accuracy of a mechanical watch varies depending on individual customer’s
use conditions such as winding state of the mainspring by movement amount of the
customer’s arm per day, temperature environment, and posture (direction of the watch).
Accordingly, the actual normal usage accuracy when the watch is used by a customer
may differ from the numerical value of each item specified in the Grand Seiko Standard.
○ The target range of normal usage accuracy when the watch is actually used by
a customer is set to –1 to +10 seconds (in the case of Cal. 9S86 and 9S85, -1
to +8 seconds) per day.
To correctly judge the normal usage accuracy, please use the watch for not only one day,
but also approximately one week to 10 days under normal use conditions to check loss
or gain of time. If the average value per day exceeds the target range, we will adjust the
watch. (Adjustment is provided Free of charge for two years after purchase, then
charged thereafter. For more details, please refer to the instruction manual.)
○ The enclosed Grand Seiko Standard Inspection Certificate certifies the values of a
movement single unit before assembly in a case which are measured under an artificially
controlled environment in the production factory passed the Grand Seiko standard
inspection.
Should the certificate be lost or after repair or adjustment, it cannot be reissued.
CAUTIONS
If you observe any allergic symptoms or skin irritation
Stop wearing the watch immediately and consult a specialist such as a dermatologist or an allergist.
Other cautions
○ Replacement of the metal band requires professional knowledge and skill. Please ask the
retailer from whom the watch was purchased for replacement of the metal band, as there is a
risk of hand or finger injury and fear of losing parts.
○ Do not disassemble or tamper with the watch.
○ Keep the watch out of the reach of babies and children. Extra care should be taken to avoid
risks of any injury or allergic rash or itching that may be caused when they touch the watch.
○ If your watch is of the fob or pendant type, the strap or chain attached to the watch may
damage your clothes, or injure the hand, neck, or other parts of your body.
○ Please keep in mind that if a watch is taken off and placed down as it is, the case back, the band and
the clasp will rub against each other possibly causing scratches on the case back. We recommend
placing a soft cloth between the case back, the band and the clasp after taking off your watch.
CAUTIONS
Do not turn or pull out the crown when the
watch is wet.
Water may get inside of the watch.
※ If the inner surface of the glass is clouded with condensation or water droplets appear inside of the watch
for a long time, the water resistant performance of the watch is deteriorated. Immediately consult the retailer
from whom the watch was purchased or SEIKO CUSTMER SERVICE CENTER.
Do not leave moisture, sweat and dirt on the
watch for a long time.
Be aware of a risk that a water resistant watch may lessen its water
resistant performance because of deterioration of the adhesive on the
glass or gasket, or the development of rust on stainless steel.
Do not wear the watch while taking a bath or a sauna.
Steam, soap or some components of a hot spring may accelerate
the deterioration of water resistant performance of the watch.
Do not pour running water directly from the faucet.
The water pressure of tap water from a faucet is high enough to
degrade the water resistant performance of a water resistant
watch for everyday life.

■INTRODUCTION -About mechanical watch-
We will explain by example
Thank you very much for purchasing the Grand Seiko mechanical watch
Take hold of your watch softly
Hear the watch ticking
Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock
Soft and faint, a dignified sound can be heard
The sound can be called
The crystal of the craftsmen's spirit and skill
Handpicked parts assembled one by one
Carefully, with craftsmanship,
Quartz watches that you have come to be
familiar with
These are just like airplanes, controlled by
computers
A battery, IC, and crystal make quartz
watches work accurately, electrically
Some loss or gain may occur while the
watch is worn
However, this will be too small to notice in
your daily life
If a quartz watch resembles an airplane,
A mechanical watch is like a bicycle
All watch parts work together mechanically
to make it tick
Thus, a mechanical watch is easily affected
by the outside environment
English
Quartz watches and mechanical watches - what is the difference?
If it is hot, the watch tends to lose time
When power driving the watch becomes
short (When the amount the spring is
wound is short), accuracy becomes
unstable
If the resting position of the watch is
changed, accuracy is also affected
The rate of loss/gain could be significant
that you will notice in your daily life
Giving life to a mechanical watch
This is proven by the sound
Talking about accuracy,
Mechanical watches cannot be compared to
Quartz watches, that is for certain
However, the accuracy of a mechanical watch
Is pursued by human hands
Full of spirit and know-how of craftsmen
A mechanical watch - complicated, sensitive,
And having a human touch
We would like to let all of you know
The accuracy is shown by the daily rate
The measured loss/gain of the watch per day
This is called the daily rate
The accuracy of a mechanical watch
Is usually shown in this daily rate
Wishing you will have a nice time
The accuracy of a mechanical watch changes
delicately day by day
Depending on the condition in which the watch is used
or the outside environment
With your Grand Seiko for a long, long time
Thus,
The charm of a mechanical watch, which has no bounds
So we made this handbook, mainly detailing the accuracy
By only observing loss/gain in one day
You cannot judge how accurate the watch works
Seiko Watch Corporation
If you check the average of the daily loss/gain rate,
You can judge the accuracy of the watch
In the case of quartz watches, the accuracy is usually
shown by the monthly/yearly rate
Total losses/gains for a month/year are called the loss/
gain rate of quartz watches
4
Characteristics of a mechanical watch
5
The accuracy of a mechanical watch varies depending on many things,
Such as the amount the spring is wound by movements of your arm, temperature, or resting position
of the watch
Thus to show the accuracy of a mechanical watch evenly, not depending on the environment
Loss/gain of a mechanical watch is measured
Before the inside movements of the watch are put in the case,
Under controlled conditions,
With many days of tests
And the measured rate is called "the accuracy of mechanical watch movement at rest"
This rate is the data measured in an environment that is artificially controlled
In order to fairly evaluate/show the abilities of mechanical watches without being
influenced by environmental changes
So it is different from “the accuracy of mechanical watches in use”
When you are actually wearing the watch
The accuracy of a mechanical watch varies delicately day by day, depending on the
environment
This is like a living thing
One of the charms that a mechanical watch has
The accuracy of a mechanical watch in use should be from –1 second/day to +10 seconds (+8 seconds
for Cal. 9S86 and 9S85) /day. If the average of the daily rates exceeds this level, we would like the
responsibility for adjusting it accordingly ([Only in Japan]. The cost of adjusting the watch is free of charge
for two years from the date of purchase.
To adjust the accuracy as accurately as possible, information such as the rate of loss/gain of your watch
and how you use it, are very important. Please let us know the following when you ask for adjustment of
your watch by our service center.
(1) The average daily loss/gain rates for one week to ten days
Ex. an average of +11 seconds
(2) Approximate hours of wearing the watch in one day in the above period
Ex. Approximately 10 hours
(3) The resting position of the watch while you don't wear it
Ex. Horizontal - Dial up
Vertical - the crown up
6
Characteristics of a mechanical watch
Wind the mainspring of your mechanical watch at a fixed time.
As there are rules for everything
There is a rule for winding the spring
If your watch is a wind-up mechanical type,
Turn the crown thirty to forty times every day,
at a fixed time
To wind the mainspring sufficiently
You have not heard this before?
Please keep it in mind
The mainspring - the source of energy for a
mechanical watch
When it is fully wound, it can supply the most stable
energy to every part of the watch movement, and the
accuracy of the watch becomes most stable
Power the mainspring supplies
In both the Official Swiss Chronometer Inspectorate and Grand Seiko Standard
The standard rate is the accuracy of mechanical watch movement at rest
*Refer to the instruction manual for further information on the Grand Seiko Standard and Rating
Certificate.
For lifelong use of your mechanical watch rule No.1
High
Low
English
The accuracy of a mechanical watch movement at
rest / the accuracy of a mechanical watch in use
To use the watch with better accuracy,
Wind the mainspring every day, at a fixed
time
Please keep to this rule as best as possible
For instance,
You may make it a rule to wind the spring
When you wake up, or at lunchtime
Duration from a fully wound state
Even if your watch is a self-winding type,
when you feel the accuracy is not stable,
Shake the watch or turn the crown about
thirty times to wind the mainspring further
If you work at a desk, etc., and do not
move too much,
The spring will not be wound sufficiently
For lifelong use of your mechanical watch rule No.2
Place your watch correctly, like this.
Horizontaldial up
Half of one day, twenty-four hours
When you do not wear your watch
The accuracy while you do not wear the watch is included in “the
accuracy of a mechanical watch in use”
The mechanical watch that you take off
Which position should the watch be put in?
Vertical-3
o’clock
The loss/gain of a mechanical watch
Depends on the resting position of the watch
In one position, the watch tends to gain, in another position, it doesn't
For instance, while you are sleeping at night,
When you do not wear your watch
Put the watch in various positions for seven to eight hours, such as
placing it with its face turned up, or with the crown up
To find the best resting position for the watch for reducing the loss/
gain that occurs while you are wearing your watch
For lifelong use of your mechanical watch

Accuracy will vary depending on the temperature.
A piece of metal of about 0.1 mm, as
thin as a hair, is wound
That is the key that controls the
accuracy of all mechanical watches
In other words,
When it is hot, the hairspring expands
and the watch tends to lose
When it is cold, the hairspring
contracts and the watch tends to gain
This is typical
<<Balance>>
Hairspring
For lifelong use of your mechanical watch rule No.5
Do not give your mechanical watch a strong shock.
When you play golf, tennis or
baseball
For instance,
At the moment you hit a golf ball with a club
The impact of the ball against the club is about 1 ton
When you play a sport that gives
your arm a strong impact
Please take off your mechanical
watch
The impact is given to your wrist
And this will affect very small parts inside your
mechanical watch
There are reasons for this
Sometimes the impact will deform or break a watch
part
“Good shot” for you becomes “bad shock” for your
watch
Metals expand and contract depending on the
temperature
This characteristic of all metals also applies to the
hairspring
This affects the accuracy of a mechanical watch
For lifelong use of your mechanical watch rule No.4
Keep your mechanical watch away from magnetic objects.
8
For lifelong use of your mechanical watch rule No.6
After you take off your watch
Do you leave it by your cell phone?
Or put it on a television or next to your PC?
Do you put it in your bag with your cell phone?
Overhaul, once every three years
Watches do not like magnetism
They may lose or gain when affected by
magnetism
In the case of a mechanical watch, there is no
need to change your battery
However
Maintenance of your watch is also necessary
To make your mechanical watch work more
accurately
It is important not to leave the watch close to
magnetic objects for a long time
Once every three years
Please take your watch to our service center
For examining and cleaning every part of your
watch
In particular, cell phones, televisions and
speakers of PCs have strong magnetism
A magnetic necklace, a clasp of a handbag,
magnetic parts of refrigerators
There are many magnetic objects around us
Please be careful
Once you start using it
Your watch never takes a rest
For lifelong use of your mechanical watch
English
For lifelong use of your mechanical watch rule No.3
Love your watch, once every three years
Talk about an overhaul
Especially
The first three years after you start using your watch is the
period when
Each part gets used to one another
And contacting each other causes additional metal powder
An overhaul after the first three years is
The key to the life of your mechanical watch
Please keep in mind
An overhaul, once every three years
Can be considered
Love for your watch
And in the case of a mechanical watch, power
given to its gear is stronger,
Compared to a quartz watch
So parts may wear,
Oil may dry or be insufficient in some parts
For lifelong use of your mechanical watch

How to wind the mainspring
○ This watch is an automatic winding type (with manual winding function).
○ The mainspring can be sufficiently wound automatically by natural
movement of the arm while normally worn on the wrist. In addition, it can
be wound by turning the crown.
○ A stopped watch can be started by arm movement when it is worn on the
wrist, however, before wearing the watch, wind the mainspring sufficiently
and adjust the time and date. When turning the mainspring, turn the crown
at the normal position clockwise (12 o'clock direction) slowly. If you turn the
crown counterclockwise (6 o'clock direction), it will turn free. The
mainspring is sufficiently wound when the crown is turned approximately 45
times (60 times for Cal. 9S65). When the mainspring is in the full-winding
state, it is structured so that the mainspring slips if it is wound. Therefore, it
is not necessary to worry about cutting the mainspring, however, please
refrain from excessive operation.
※ It is recommended that you wear the watch on your wrist more than 10 hours a day
to keep the mainspring wound up. If the mainspring is not wound up sufficiently, the
watch may lose or gain time. If you do not wear the watch on your wrist, wind the
mainspring up sufficiently by turning the crown by hand every day at a fixed time.
CAUTION
○ Do not adjust the date between 10 o'clock p.m. and 1 o'clock a.m. If the
date is adjusted during this period of time, the date may not change when
the next day comes, or this may cause damage.
○ Due to its wheel train mechanism, for setting the time of the mechanical
watch correctly, the hands should be set back once slightly and then set
forward to the correct time.

How to use the 24-hour hand
This watch has two different types of 24-hour hand usage.
<Type 1> 24-hour hand as an a.m./
p.m. indicator
Simply using the 24-hour hand to
show the 24-hour time as an a.m./
p.m. indicator. (This is the standard
usage type for the 24-hour hand.)
Both the hour hand and the 24hour hand are indicating the
Japan time 10:00 a.m.
<Type 2> 24-hour hand as a dual time indicator
Using the time difference adjustment
function, set the 24-hour hand to
indicate a time different from the time
that the hour and minute hand indicate,
which is of a place in a different time
zone area with at least one hour of time
difference from where you are.

How to wind the mainspring
○ This watch is a manual winding type.
○ In order to wind it up completely, please refer to the following table ;
In case the watch is supposed
to be wound up every day.
About 20 turns of the crown will wind up
the watch fully.
In case the watch was not wound
up more than three days.
About 60 turns of the crown will wind up
the watch fully.
○ From the state of the mainspring being sufficiently wound, it continuously
operates for approximately 72 hours or more.
○ If the mainspring is not wound up sufficiently, the watch may lose or gain time.
To attain a high accuracy, we suggest that the mainspring is wound up fully
once a day at a fixed time.
How to set the time
① Pull out the crown when the
second hand is at the 12 o'clock
position.
(The second hand stops.)
Turn the crown to set the current
time.
② Push the crown back in to the
normal position in accordance
with a time signal.
The watch starts operating.
English
HOW TO USE (FOR CAL. 9S64)
First click
Generally speaking, the crown of the manual winding mechanical watch cannot be turned
further when it is wound up fully. However, the crown of CAL. 9S64 can be turned
endlessly even after the watch is fully wound up. If you keep turning the crown, that gives
no effect to winding, but the watch is so designed as to make the winding a little tighter
and not to damage the watch. However, please refrain from excessive operation.
※ When the watch is used from a state in which the mainspring is unwound to a stop, it
does not move immediately even if the mainspring is wound with the winding crown.
This is because of the mechanical watch's feature that the mainspring torque (force) is
weak at the beginning of mainspring winding. The second hand starts moving when
the mainspring is wound to reach a certain degree of torque strength, while the watch
can be made to move advance by shaking it to rotate the balance wheel forcibly.
Do not pull out the crown.
(If the watch is equipped with
the screw lock type crown,
unscrew the crown before
pulling it out.)
CAUTION
24
Slowly turn the crown
clockwise (12 o'clock
direction) to wind the
mainspring.
For models with a screw lock type crown, remember to screw the crown in.

■GRAND SEIKO STANDARD
How to wind the mainspring
○ This watch is an automatic winding type (with manual winding function).
○ The mainspring can be sufficiently wound automatically by natural
movement of the arm while normally worn on the wrist. In addition, it can
be wound by turning the crown.
○ A stopped watch can be started by arm movement when it is worn on the
wrist, however, before wearing the watch, wind the mainspring sufficiently
and adjust the time and date. When turning the mainspring, turn the crown
at the normal position clockwise (12 o'clock direction) slowly. If you turn the
crown counterclockwise (6 o'clock direction), it will turn free. The
mainspring is sufficiently wound when the crown is turned approximately 60
times. When the mainspring is in the full-winding state, it is structured so
that the mainspring slips if it is wound. Therefore, it is not necessary to
worry about cutting the mainspring, however, please refrain from excessive
operation.
※ It is recommended that you wear the watch on your wrist more than 10 hours a day
to keep the mainspring wound up. If the mainspring is not wound up sufficiently, the
watch may lose or gain time. If you do not wear the watch on your wrist, wind the
mainspring up sufficiently by turning the crown by hand every day at a fixed time.
CAUTION
○ For models with a screw lock type crown, remember to screw the crown in.
○ Due to its wheel train mechanism, for setting the time of the mechanical
watch correctly, the hands should be set back once slightly and then set
forward to the correct time.
How to set the time
① Pull out the crown when the
second hand is at the 12 o'clock
position.
(The second hand stops.)
Turn the crown to set the current
time.
② Push the crown back in to the
normal position in accordance
with a time signal.
The watch starts operating.

Due to the movement (driving body) structure, normal usage
accuracy of a mechanical watch varies according to differences in
environmental conditions of use such as winding state of the
mainspring by movement amount of the wrist per day, temperature
environment, and position = orientation of a watch.
"Grand Seiko Standard" is a Seiko-exclusive accuracy standard for
mechanical watches, which has been established to check
superior performance of Grand Seiko mechanical watches
irrespective of differences in environmental conditions of use in
which a watch is used.
⇒For details of the "Grand Seiko Standard," refer to pages 29 to
30.
It is conditioned that all of Grand Seiko mechanical watches are to
be passed by the "Grand Seiko Standard Inspeciton" according to
the exacting standard. Only products, in which the movement
single unit before assembly in a case is measured for gain/loss
(daily rate) under various environments which are artificially
controlled in the manufacturing plant for 17 days in total, and the
measured values fall under the standard range, are given the title
of "Grand Seiko."
English
HOW TO USE (FOR CAL. 9S61)
For normal usage accuracy when the watch is actually used by
a customer, -1 to +10 seconds (+8 seconds for Cal. 9S86 and
9S85) per day are specified as target values. To properly judge
the accuracy in the case of normal usage, check gain/loss by
using for a week to ten days, not only for one day, in normal
use condition. If the mean value per day exceeds the abovementioned target range, we will adjust the watch. (Adjustment
is provided free of charge within two years after purchase. After
the two-year period, adjustments are charged.) We will respond
to the following cases at cost regardless of the period of time
after purchase.
○ Disorder in accuracy has occurred due to customer's
carelessness such as, incorrect usage method or
magnetizing the watch.
○ Disorder in accuracy has occurred due to repair by
another company.
○ Disorder in accuracy has occurred due to natural
disasters such as fire, flood or earthquake.
○ Guaranteed conditions have been altered.

Grand Seiko Standard Inspection Certificate
CAUTION
The Grand Seiko Standard Inspeciton Certificate cannot be
reissued when it has been lost. Also, it cannot be reissued
after repair or adjustment.
Cautions for accuracy of mechanical watch
Mechanical watches have a mechanism that is moved by power generated
when the mainspring is unwound, and small metal parts physically work
together to control the accuracy. Fragile metal parts of a mechanical watch are
easily influenced by external environment such as temperature, gravity, and
shock. Also, conditions of use such as normal usage time and winding state of
the mainspring can, influence the gain/loss of the watch.
English
○ Grand Seiko Standard Inspeciton Certificate certifies the values of a
movement single unit before assembly in a case which were
measured under an artificially controlled environment in the
manufacturing plant have passed the Grand Seiko Standard
Inspeciton. The certificate is printed with the caliber number,
movement serial number, and case serial number.
○ Normal usage accuracy of mechanical watches varies according to
respective customer conditions of use (winding state of the
mainspring by movement amount of the wrist per day, temperature
environment, and position (orientation of a watch). Accordingly, the
actual normal usage accuracy when it is used by a customer may
differ from the value of each item specified in the Grand Seiko
Standard.
① Accuracy of mechanical watch is "mean daily rate."
Accuracy of the quartz watch is indicated monthly or annually such as a
monthly rate of ±15 seconds or annual rate of ±10 seconds. This indicates the
degree of total difference in accuracy when the quartz watch is continuously
used for a month or a year. To the contrary, accuracy of the mechanical watch
is normally indicated as a "mean daily rate." Accuracy of the mechanical watch
slightly varies each day as it is influenced by various conditions of use, and it is
normally unstable. Then it is required to judge whether the accuracy is
satisfactory or not by checking the mean values in the case of use for a week
to ten days, but not for only one day. For normal usage accuracy of Grand
Seiko mechanical watch, -1 to +10 seconds (+8 seconds for Cal. 9S86 and
9S85) per day are specified as target values. If the mean value exceeds the
abovementioned target value in the normal usage condition when the watch is
used for a week to ten days, we will adjust it.
*Adjustment is provided free of charge within two years after purchase. After the twoyear period, adjustments are charged. However, please note that the parts that are
age-deteriorated due to long duration of use may not be adjusted to your desired
accuracy. ⇒For details, refer to pages 27 and 32.
② Factor influencing accuracy -1: Wound amount of the mainspring
In order to use the mechanical watch at better accuracies, it is required to supply a
constant strong energy wherever possible to respective parts. In the state where the
mainspring is fully wound, accuracy is stable, however, when the mainspring is unwound
to weaken energy to be supplied, the parts controlling accuracy tends to be externally
influenced, and accuracy becomes unstable. In order to use a mechanical watch at a
steady accuracy, it is recommended to use it in a condition where the mainspring is
sufficiently wound.
③ Factor influencing accuracy -2: Temperature influence
Mechanical watch parts are metal which slightly elongate and contract by
change in temperature, and this influences accuracy. Normally, under high
temperatures, it tends to lose time, and under low temperatures, it tends to
gain time.
④ Factor influencing accuracy -3: Difference by position (orientation of a watch)
Parts related to accuracy of a mechanical watch are also influenced by the
earth's gravity. For example, gain or loss differs when a watch is horizontally
placed and when it is vertically placed in the 12 o'clock up position. When the
watch is not worn on the wrist, accuracy errors that occur while wearing can
also be compensated to some extent according to the position. Try to place it
in various positions to find the position appropriate to your watch.

Daily care
○ Do not wash the watch when its crown is at the extended position.
○ Wipe away moisture, sweat or dirt with a soft cloth.
○ After soaking the watch in seawater, be sure to wash the watch in clean
pure water and wipe it dry carefully.
※ If your watch is rated as “non-water resistant” or “water resistant for daily use”, do
not wash the watch.
⇒ “The case back shows the caliber and performance of your watch” page 36.
⇒ “Water resistance” page 36.
Turn the crown from time to time
○ In order to prevent corrosion of the crown, turn the crown from time to time.
○ The same practice should be applied to a screw lock type crown.
⇒ “Crown” page 13.
The band touches the skin directly and becomes dirty from sweat or dust.
Therefore, lack of care may accelerate deterioration of the band or cause
skin irritation or stain on the sleeve edge. The watch requires a lot of
attention for long usage.
English
The watch requires good daily care
Band
Metallic band
○ Moisture, sweat or soil will cause rust even on a stainless steel band if they
are left for a long time.
○ Lack of care may cause a yellowish or gold stain on the lower sleeve edge
of shirts.
○ Wipe off moisture, sweat or soil with a soft cloth as soon as possible.
○ To clean the soil around the joint gaps of the band, wipe it out in water and
then brush it off with a soft toothbrush (Protect the watch body from water
splashes by wrapping it up in plastic wrap etc.).
○ Because some titanium bracelets use pins made of stainless steel, which
has outstanding strength, rust may form in the stainless steel parts.
○ If rust advances, pins may poke out or drop out, and the watch case may
fall off the bracelet, or the clasp may not open.
○ If a pin is poking out, personal injury may result. In such a case, refrain from
using the watch and request repair.
Leather band
○ A leather band is susceptible to discoloration and deterioration from moisture,
sweat and direct sunlight.
○ Wipe off moisture and sweat as soon as possible by gently blotting them up
with a dry cloth.
○ Do not expose the watch to direct sunlight for a long time.
○ Please take care when wearing a watch with light-colored band, as dirt is likely
to show up.
○ Refrain from wearing a leather band watch other than Aqua Free bands while
bathing, swimming, and when working with water even if the watch itself is
water-resistant enforced for daily use (10-BAR/20-BAR water resistant).
Polyurethane band
○ A polyurethane band is susceptible to discoloration from light, and may be
deteriorated by solvent or atmospheric humidity.
○ Especially a translucent, white, or pale colored band easily adsorbs other
colors, resulting in color smears or discoloration.
○ Wash out dirt in water and clean it off with a dry cloth. (Protect the watch
body from water splashes by wrapping it up in plastic wrap etc.)
○ When the band becomes less flexible, have the band replaced with a new
one. If you continue to use the band as it is, the band may develop cracks
or become brittle over time.
Notes on skin irritation and allergy
Skin irritation caused by a band has various reasons such as allergy to metals
or leathers, or skin reactions against friction on dust or the band itself.
Notes on the length of the band
Adjust the band to allow a little clearance with your wrist to ensure
proper airflow. When wearing the watch, leave enough room to
insert a finger between the band and your wrist.

Lumibrite
Troubleshooting
Lumibrite is a luminous paint that is completely harmless to human
beings and the natural environment; containing no noxious materials
such as radioactive substance. Lumibrite is a newly-developed
luminous paint that absorbs light energy of the sunlight and lighting
apparatus 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 3 to 5 hours.
Please note, however, 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.
※ In general, when you enter a dark place from a bright environment,
your eye cannot adapt to the change in light levels quickly. At first,
you can hardly see anything, but as time passes, your vision
gradually improves. (Dark adaptation of the human eye)

Mean daily rate※: is a mean value of daily rates in a condition where the movement before assembly in a
case are measured in 6 positions in a fixed manner under artificially controlled environment for 12 days.
Caution: Depending on conditions of use( such as normal usage time, temperature
environment, and winding state), accuracy may exceed the abovementioned range.
Therefore, for normal usage accuracy when it is actually used, -1 to +10 seconds (+8
seconds for Cal. 9S86 and 9S85) per day are specified as target values
※ The specifications are subject to change without prior notice due to product improvement.
