● 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.

●Check the type of the crown of your watch
Hour hand
[Caliber 6R24]
* If your watch has a screw-lock crown, the crown will screw into the watch case
for added protection.
• After completing all settings of the watch, screw the crown in again by turning it clockwise while pressing it.
• If the crown turns out to be too stiff to be screwed up, turn the crown counterclockwise once and then give another try.
• Do not screw it in by force as it may damage the slots of the crown.
English
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.
●How to manually wind the mainspring by turning the crown
1. Slowly turn the crown clockwise (the 12 o’clock direction) to wind the mainspring.
* Turning the crown counterclockwise (the 6 o’clock direction) does not wind the mainspring.
2. Wind the mainspring until the power reserve indicator shows a full-wound state.
The second hand will start moving.
* To check the winding state of the mainspring, refer to "HOW TO READ THE POWER RESERVE INDICATOR " on page 16.
* 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.
* 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 wearing on the wrist; if it is used on the desk like a clock, for example; be sure to wind it up fully every day at a fixed time.
* If you use a watch that has stopped with the mainspring unwound, winding the
mainspring with the crown will not start the watch immediately. That is because
the mainspring torque (force) is low at the beginning of its winding due to the characteristics of mechanical watches. The 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.

• The power reserve indicator lets you know the winding state of the mainspring.
• Before removing the watch from your wrist, observe the power reserve indicator to check if the watch has enough power stored to keep running until the next
time you wear it. If necessary, wind the mainspring. (To prevent the watch from
stopping, wind the mainspring to store the excess power that will allow the
watch to run for extra time.)

● CARE OF YOUR WATCH
• The case and band touch the skin directly. Keep the case and band clean
at all times. This will help to extend the life of the watch and will reduce
the risk of skin irritations.
• When you take the watch off, wipe off moisture, sweat or soil with a soft
dry cloth as soon as possible. This will help to extend the life of the case,
band and gasket.
<Leather strap>
• Gently blot up the moisture using a soft dry cloth. Do not rub the leather,
as this may cause abrasions or discoloration.
<Metal bracelet>
• To keep the bracelet clean, use a soft toothbrush dipped in clean or soapy
water. Be careful not to get water on the case.
18
● RASH AND ALLERGIC REACTION
• Adjust the band to allow a little clearance around your wrist to ensure proper
airflow.
• Prolonged and/or repeated contact with the band may cause skin irritation or dermatitis for those susceptible.
• Possible causes of dermatitis
• Allergic reaction to metals or leathers
• Rust, contamination or perspiration accumulated on the watch case or band
• If you should develop any allergic symptoms or skin irritation, immediately stop wearing the watch and seek medical attention.
● WATER RESISTANCE
● Non-water resistance
If “WATER RESISTANT” is not inscribed on the case back,
your watch is not water resistant, and care should be taken
not to get it wet as water may damage the movement. If the
watch becomes wet, we suggest that you have it checked
by the retailer from whom the watch was purchased or your
SERVICE CENTER.
English

WR
● Water resistance (10 bar/15 bar/20 bar)*
If “WATER RESISTANT 10 BAR”, “WATER RESISTANT 15 BAR”
or “WATER RESISTANT 20 BAR” is inscribed on the case back,
your watch is designed and manufactured to withstand up to
10/1/0
10 bar/15 bar/20 bar, respectively, and is suitable for wearing
bar WR
while taking a bath or shallow diving, but not for scuba diving.
We recommend that you wear a SEIKO Diver’s watch while
scuba diving.
* Before using a water resistant 5, 10, 15 or 20 bar watch in water, make
sure the crown is pushed in completely.
Do not operate the crown when the watch is wet or in water. If used in
sea water, rinse the watch in fresh water and dry it completely.
20
* When taking a shower while wearing a water resistant 5 bar watch, or taking a bath while wearing a water resistant 10, 15 or 20 bar watch, make
sure to observe the following:
• Do not operate the crown when the watch is wet with soapy water or
shampoo.
• If the watch is left in warm water, a slight time loss or gain may be
caused. This condition, however, will be corrected when the watch returns to normal temperature.
NOTE:
Pressure in bar is a test pressure and should not be considered as corresponding to an actual diving depth since swimming movements tend to increase the pressure at a given depth. Care should also be taken when diving
with the watch into water.
English
bar
● Water resistance (3 bar)
If “WATER RESISTANT” is inscribed on the case back, your
watch is designed and manufactured to withstand up to 3 bar,
such as acci­dental contact with splashes of water or rain, but it
is not designed for wearing while swimming or diving.
● Water resistance (5 bar)*
If “WATER RESISTANT 5 BAR” is inscribed on the case back,
your watch is designed and manufactured to withstand up to 5
bar and is suitable for wearing while swimming, yachting and
taking a shower.
PRECAUTIONS ON WEARING YOUR WATCH
• Exercise care when you hold an infant or small child while wearing the
watch on your wrist, as the infant or child may be injured or develop an
allergic reaction caused by direct contact with the watch.
• Avoid undue shocks such as dropping or scratching against hard surfaces
or playing active sports, which may cause temporary malfunctions.
• There is a possibility of injury caused by wearing the watch on your wrist
especially if you fall down or bump into other people or objects.

Solutions
The watch stops
operating.
The power supplied by the
mainspring has been
consumed.
Turn the crown or swing the watch to wind it up. The
watch will start operating. If the watch does not start,
consult the retailer from whom the watch was purchased.
Even though you wear the
watch every day,
the power reserve indicator
does not move up.
The watch is worn on your
wrist only for a short period
of time, or the amount of
arm movement is small.
The watch has been left in
extremely high or low
temperatures for a long time.
The watch was brought into
close contact with a
magnetic object.
You dropped the watch, hit it against
a hard surface or wore it while
playing active sports. The watch was
exposed to strong vibrations.
The watch has not been
overhauled for more than years.
AM/PM is not properly set.
Wear the watch for an extended period of time, or when
taking off the watch, turn the crown to wind the
mainspring if the remaining power shown by the power
reserve indicator is not sufficient for the next use.
Normal accuracy will resume when the
watch returns to normal temperature.
Water got inside the watch
due to the deterioration of
the gasket, etc.
Consult the retailer from whom the
watch was purchased.

ACCURACY OF MECHANICAL WATCHES
Possible causes
Problem
Normal accuracy will resume when the watch is kept away from
close contact with the magnetic source. If this condition persists,
consult the retailer from whom the watch was purchased.
Normal accuracy will not resume.
Consult the retailer from whom the
watch was purchased.
Consult the retailer from whom the
watch was purchased.
Advance the hands by 1 hours.
*For the solution of troubles other than listed above, contact the retailer from whom the watch was purchased.
● 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,
and 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 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.
