with the Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) differential for each city, based on the
current Home City time setting in the Timekeeping Mode.
• The GMT differential is the time difference between the time zone where the

• 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

• 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.
