Current Time Setting
Normally, you do not need to do anything to set the current time as long as you
are within an area in West Europe where the watch can pick up the time
calibration signal. You can also set the current time manually when you are
outside the range of the signal.
• Before using the watch after purchasing it, use the procedure under
“Selecting Your Home City Code” (page E-11) to specify your home city, and
then use the procedure under “To perform manual time calibration signal
reception.”
• Note that after you set your Home City code, you must also turn on the
watch’s time calibration signal receiver if you want to enable auto time
calibration. See “About Auto Receive” (page E-16) for more information.
• See “Setting the Time and Date Manually” for information about manual
settings.
Setting the Time and Date Manually
The times displayed in the Timekeeping Mode and World Time Mode are
linked. Even if you plan to use the watch without enabling auto time calibration,
be sure to select a Home City code (the city code whose time and date you are
setting), before you set the time and date.

Time Calibration Signal Reception
This watch is designed to pick up a time calibration signal transmitted from
Mainflingen, Germany and update its time setting in accordance with the
signal. There are two different methods you can use to receive the signal: Auto
Receive and Manual Receive. With Auto Receive, the watch automatically
receives the calibration signal three times each day and makes appropriate
adjustments. With Manual Receive, you perform a specific button operation to
receive the calibration signal.
Note
• If you are using the time calibration signal to set the time for this watch, be
sure to correctly set your home city. Otherwise, there is the chance that the
watch will not set the correct time. See the “To select your Home City code”
for details.
• This watch automatically switches between DST and standard time while
BER is selected as the home city code. For any other home city code, you
must perform the procedure under “To set the current time and date
manually” to switch between DST and standard time.
• Time calibration reception is limited to specific geographic areas in West
Europe.
• The current time setting in accordance with the time calibration signal takes
priority over any time settings you make.
• The watch is designed to automatically update the date and day of the week
for the period January 1, 2000 to December 31, 2039. Setting of the date by
the time calibration signal cannot be performed starting from January 1,
2040.
• This watch can receive signals that differentiate between leap years and nonleap years.
• Auto Receive is turned on when the watch is shipped from the factory.
• See the information under “Time Calibration Signal Reception Precautions”
(page
E-42) if you experience problems with time calibration signal reception.

About the Receive Indicator
The receive indicator shows the strength of the calibration signal being
received. For best reception, be sure to keep the watch in a location where
signal strength is strongest.
Weak
Strong
• Even in an area where signal strength is strong, it takes about 10 seconds for
signal reception to stabilize enough for the receive indicator to indicate signal
strength.
• Use the receive indicator as a guide for checking signal strength and for
finding the best location for the watch during signal receive operations.
• The receive indicator remains on the display in all modes following reception
of the time calibration signal and calibration of the watch’s time setting. The
receive indicator does not appear if signal reception was unsuccessful or
after manual adjustment of the current time setting.
About Auto Receive
When auto receive is turned on, the watch automatically starts to receive the
time calibration signal when the digital time in the Timekeeping Mode reaches
2:00 AM, 4:00 AM, and 6:00 AM each day (calibration times).
Note
• The Auto Receive operation is performed only if the watch is in the
Timekeeping Mode or World Time Mode when one of the calibration times is
reached. It is not performed if the calibration time is reached while you are
making settings (while settings are flashing on the display).
• Auto receipt of the calibration signal is designed to be performed early in the
morning, while you sleep (provided that the digital time is set correctly).
Before going to bed for the night, remove the watch from your wrist, and put it
in a location where it can easily receive the signal.
• The receive indicator ( ) indicates that one, two, or all three of the last
calibration time reception attempts were successful.
• When auto receive is turned on, the watch receives the calibration signal for
four to 11 minutes each day when the digital time reaches 2:00 AM, 4:00 AM,
and 6:00 AM. Do not operate any of the watch’s buttons within 15 minutes
prior to or following the calibration times. Doing so can interfere with correct
calibration.
• Remember that reception of the calibration signal depends on the time
shown on the digital display. The receive operation will be performed
whenever the digital display shows 2:00 AM, 4:00 AM, and 6:00 AM,
regardless of whether or not the displayed time is actually the correct time.
• When two or three receptions are successful, the watch uses the data of the
last reception for calibration. When only one reception is successful, the
watch uses the data of the successful reception.
To turn auto receive on and off
1. In the Timekeeping Mode, hold down A until the
current Auto Receive On/Off setting starts to flash,
which indicates the setting screen.
2. Press D to toggle Auto Receive on (ON) and off
(OFF).

This section contains more detailed and technical information about watch
operation. It also contains important precautions and notes about the various
features and functions of this watch.
Auto Return Features
• If you leave a screen with flashing digits or a cursor on the display for two or
three minutes without performing any operation, the watch automatically
saves anything you have input up to that point and exits the setting screen.
• If you leave the watch in Alarm, Day Counter, or Telememo Mode for about
two minutes without performing any operation, it automatically changes to the
Timekeeping Mode.
Data and Setting Scrolling
The B and D buttons are used in various modes and setting screens to scroll
through data on the display. In most cases, holding down these buttons during
a scroll operation scrolls through the data at high speed.
Initial Screens
When you enter the Alarm, Day Counter, World Time or Telememo Mode, the
data you were viewing when you last exited the mode appears first.
Inputting Text
The following describes how to input text in the Alarm, Day Counter, and
Telememo Modes.
To input characters
• Signal reception is affected by weather, atmospheric conditions, and
seasonal changes.
• The time calibration signal is bounced off the ionosphere. Because of this,
such factors as changes in the reflectivity of the ionosphere, as well as
movement of the ionosphere to higher altitudes due to seasonal atmospheric
changes or the time of day may change the reception range of the signal and
make reception temporarily impossible.
• This watch is designed to receive the signal transmitted from Mainflingen.
This means that reception is best when the antenna built into the 12 o’clock
edge of the watch is facing towards Mainflingen. Note, however, that moving
the watch while the time calibration signal receive operation is taking place
will make stable reception impossible.
• Think of the watch as acting like a TV or radio when it is receiving the
calibration signal. When receiving indoors, move to a location as near as
possible to a window. Proper signal reception can be difficult or even
impossible under the conditions listed below.
Near TVs, refrigerators, computers, or other household appliances
Far away from broadcasting stations among ferro-concrete structures or near
mountains
Underground, in tunnels or in ferro-concrete buildings
Near high-tension wires, neon signs, or radio stations with interfering
frequencies
Near railroads, highways or airports
In trains or cars
• Radio interference can make signal reception impossible.
• Strong electrostatic charge can result in the wrong time being set.
• The daily alarm and hourly time signal do not operate during signal reception.
• If you are in an area where proper time calibration signal reception is
impossible, the watch keeps time with the precision noted in “Specifications.”
World Time
• The current time in all World Time Mode cities is calculated in accordance
with the Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) differential for each city, based on the
current Home City time setting in the Timekeeping Mode.
• GMT differential is calculated by this watch based on Universal Time
Coordinated (UTC) data.
Backlight Precautions
• The electro-luminescent panel that provides illumination loses power after very
long use.
• The illumination provided by the backlight may be hard to see when viewed
under direct sunlight.
• The watch may emit an audible sound whenever the display is illuminated.
This is due to vibration of the EL panel used for illumination, and does not
indicate malfunction.
• The backlight automatically turns off whenever an alarm sounds.

Time Calibration Signal Reception Precautions
• This watch is able to receive the time calibration
signal transmitted from Mainflingen, Germany
(located 25 kilometers southeast of Frankfurt).
Signal reception is possible within the area
represented by a circle with a radius of about 800
kilometers.
• Even when the watch is within the reception range,
signal reception is impossible if the signal is
blocked by mountains or other geological
formations between the watch and signal source.

2. When the character you want is at the cursor position, press C to move the
cursor to the right.
3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 to input the rest of the characters you want.
Display Text
Though you can input up to eight characters for Alarm text, Day Counter text
and the Telememo name, only six characters can appear on the display at one
time. Because of this, display screens switch alternately between the first six
characters and the remaining two characters.
Timekeeping
• Pressing D while setting the current time in the Timekeeping Mode resets
the seconds count to zero. Pressing D while seconds count is in the range
of 30 to 59 resets the seconds to 00 and adds 1 to the minutes. In the range
of 00 to 29, the minutes count is unchanged.
• The day of the week is automatically displayed in accordance with the date
(year, month, and day) settings.
• The year can be set in the range of 2000 to 2039.
• The watch’s built-in full automatic calendar automatically makes allowances
for different month lengths and leap years. Once you set the date, there
should be no reason to change it except after you have the watch’s battery
replaced.
12-hour/24-hour Timekeeping Formats
The 12-hour/24-hour timekeeping format you select in the Timekeeping Mode
is also applied in all other modes.
• With the 12-hour format, the P (PM) indicator appears to the left of the hour
digits for times in the range of noon to 11:59 p.m. and the no indicator
appears to the left of the hour digits for times in the range of midnight to
11:59 a.m.
• With the 24-hour format, times are displayed in the range of 0:00 to 23:59,
with 24 indicator.
