Time Calibration Signal Reception
This watch is designed to pick up a time calibration signal 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.
Before performing a signal receive operation, remove the watch from you wrist and
position it as shown in the illustrations below.
• If your watch has a resin band, pass the end of the band through the band loop and
place the watch on a stable surface.

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 “Setting the Time and Date Manually” for details.
• Note that signal reception is possible only when the watch is within range of a time
calibration signal transmitter, and BER, PAR, LON, or ATH is selected as the Home
City code.
• See “City Code Table” for a complete list of available city codes.
• The current time setting in accordance with the time calibration signal takes priority
over any time settings you make.
• Auto receive is turned on when the watch is shipped from the factory.
• See the information under “Time Calibration Signal Reception” if you experience
problems with time calibration signal reception.

2. In the Timekeeping Mode, hold down A for about two
seconds until the watch beeps.
• Release A and the message receiving appears to
indicate that signal reception has started.
• Time calibration signal reception takes from two to six
minutes. Take care that you do not move the watch
during this time.
• After signal reception is complete, the display of the
watch changes to the Last Signal screen.
• The receive indicator indicates that the calibration time
reception attempt was successful.
Note
• To interrupt a receive operation and return to the Timekeeping Mode, press A.
• If the receive operation is unsuccessful, the message ERROR! appears on the
display for about one or two minutes. After that, the watch returns to the

About Auto Receive
When auto receive is turned on, the watch automatically starts to receive the time
calibration signal when the 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 or
World Time Mode when one of the calibration times is reached.
It is not performed if a calibration time is reached while you are making settings
(while settings are flashing on the display), while an alarm is sounding, or while a
silent alert operation is being performed.
• Auto receipt of the calibration signal is designed to be performed early in the
morning, while you sleep (provided that the Timekeeping Mode 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 either the 2:00 AM, 4:00 AM, or 6:00 AM
calibration signal reception was successful. Note, however, that the receive indicator
is cleared from the display at 3:00 AM each day.
• If you do not see the receive indicator except for the above reason, it means there
was some problem with the calibration reception operation. Either perform reception
manually, or make sure the watch is set up properly to receive the time calibration
signal for the next automatic reception time.
• Though this watch is designed to receive both time data (hour, minutes, seconds)
and date data (year, month, day), certain signal conditions can limit reception to time
data only.
• The receive indicator ( ) appears only when the watch is able to successfully
receive both time and date data. It does not appear when only time data is received.
When time and date data is received: Receive indicator ( ) appears.
When time data only is received: Receive indicator ( ) does not appear.
• Normally, the signal reception date shown by the Last Signal screen is the date data
included in the received time calibration signal. When only time data is received,
however, the Last Signal screen shows date as kept in the Timekeeping Mode at the
time of signal reception.
• When auto receive is turned on, the watch receives the calibration signal for two to
six minutes each day when the Timekeeping Mode time reaches 2:00 AM, 4:00 AM
and 6:00 AM. Do not operate any of the watch’s buttons within six 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 kept in the
Timekeeping Mode. The receive operation will be performed whenever the display
shows 2:00 AM, 4:00 AM and 6:00 AM, regardless of whether or not the
Timekeeping Mode 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

• 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.

• The Level 3 charge warning indicator tells you that battery power is very low, and
that exposure to bright light for charging is required as soon as possible.
• At Level 4, all functions are disabled and settings return to their initial factory
defaults. Functions are enabled once again after the rechargeable battery is
charged, but you need to set the current time, date, and all other settings after the
battery is recharged to Level 2 from Level 4. Though the time appears on the display
after the battery is charged to Level 3, you will not be able to change the time setting
until the battery reaches Level 2.
• Leaving the watch in direct sunlight or some other very strong light source can
cause the battery power indicator to temporarily show a reading that is actually
higher than the battery level. The correct battery power indicator should appear after
a few minutes.
• If you use the backlight or the alarms a number of times during a short period, the

Important!
• Storing the watch for long periods in an area where there is no light or wearing it in
such a way that it is blocked from exposure to light can cause rechargeable battery
power to run down. Be sure that the watch is normally exposed to bright light
whenever possible.
• This watch employs a solar cell that converts light into electricity that charges a builtin rechargeable battery. Normally, the rechargeable battery should not need
replacement, but after very long use over a number of years, the rechargeable
battery may lose its ability to achieve a full charge. Should you notice problems with
getting the rechargeable battery to a full charge, contact your dealer or CASIO
distributor about having the rechargeable battery replaced.
• The rechargeable battery should be replaced with a CASIO-specified CTL1616
battery only. Other rechargeable batteries can cause damage to the watch.
• All data stored in memory is deleted, and the current time and all other settings
return to their initial factory defaults whenever battery power drops to Level 4 and
when you have battery replaced.
• Turn on the watch’s Power Saving function and keep it in an area normally exposed
to bright light when storing it for long periods. This helps to keep the rechargeable
battery from going dead.

Time Calibration Signal Reception
• 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 1000 kilometers.
• At distances further than about 500 kilometers, the
signal may become weak and reception may be
impossible under certain conditions.
•
Signal reception may be poor in the shaded area
on the map, even though it is within 1,000 kilometers of
the signal transmitter.
Frankfurt
• 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.
• The current time for all city codes in the Timekeeping Mode is calculated in
accordance with the Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) differential for each city, based
on the your Home City time setting.
• GMT differential is calculated by this watch based on Universal Time Coordinated
(UTC ) data.
*
The letters “UTC” stands for “Universal Time Coordinated,” which is the world-wide
* scientific standard of timekeeping. It is based upon carefully maintained atomic
(cesium) clocks that keep accurate to within microseconds. Leap seconds are
added or subtracted as necessary to keep UTC in sync with the Earth’s rotation.
The reference point for UTC is Greenwich, England.
12-hour/24-hour Timekeeping Formats
General Precautions
• 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 non-leap
years.
• Even when the watch is within the reception range of the transmitter, signal
reception is impossible if the signal is blocked by mountains or other geological
formations between the watch and signal source.
• 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.
• Reception is best when the antenna built into the 12 o'clock edge of the watch is
facing in the general direction of the signal transmitter. 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.

Auto Summer Time (DST) Switching
The time calibration signal transmitted from Mainflingen, Germany includes both
standard time and summer time (Daylight Saving Time) data. When auto summer time
(DST) switching is turned on, the watch switches between standard time and summer
time (DST) automatically in accordance with the calibration signal.
• Daylight Saving Time (DST) advances the time setting by one hour from Standard
Time. Remember that not all countries or even local areas use Daylight Saving
Time.
• When using the watch within the reception range of the Mainflingen transmitter, and
BER, PAR, LON, or ATH is selected as the Home City code, select AUTO DST to
turn on the auto summer time setting.
• The default auto summer time setting is AUTO DST whenever you select BER,
PAR, LON or ATH as your Home City code.
• If you experience problems receiving the time calibration signal in your area, it is
probably best to turn off auto time switching.
To select the auto summer time setting
1. In the Timekeeping Mode, press B. This causes the current auto receive on/off
setting (the receive indicator) to flash, which indicates the setting screen.
2. Press C twice until the summer time (DST) setting screen appears.
3. Use D to cycle through the summer time settings in the sequence shown below.
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 on the display for times in the
range of noon to 11:59 p.m. and the no indicator appears 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.

Backlight Precautions
The backlight uses an EL (electro-luminescent) panel that causes the entire display to
glow for easy reading in the dark.
In any mode, press L to illuminate the display for about one second.
• 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.
• Frequent use of the backlight shortens the battery life.
4. When the setting you want is selected, press B to exit the setting screen.
