countdown. You can resume the auto-repeat countdown by pressing D, or you can
press A to reset to the countdown time starting value.
Countdown Timer Beeper Operations
The watch beeps at various times during a countdown so you can keep informed
about the countdown status without looking at the display. The following describes the
types of beeper operations the watch performs during a countdown.
Countdown End Beeper
The countdown end beeper lets you know when the countdown reaches zero.
• When the progress beeper is turned off, the countdown end beeper sounds for
about 10 seconds, or until you press any button to stop it.
• When the progress beeper is turned on, the countdown end beeper sounds for
about one second.
Progress Beeper
When the progress beeper is turned on, the watch uses beeps to signal countdown
progress as described below.
• Starting from five minutes before the end of the countdown, the watch emits four
short beeps at the top of each countdown minute.
• 30 seconds before the end of the countdown, the watch emits four short beeps.
• The watch emits a short beep for each of the last 10 seconds of the countdown.
• If the countdown start time is six minutes or greater, the watch emits a short beep for
each second of the final 10 seconds before the five-minute point is reached. Four
short beeps are emitted to signal when the five-minute point is reached.
To configure the countdown timer
1. While the countdown start time is on the display in the
Countdown Timer Mode, hold down A until the current
countdown start time starts to flash, which indicates the
setting screen.

Illumination
Auto light switch indicator
This watch has two EL (electro-luminescent) panels that
cause the entire display to glow for easy reading in the
dark. The watch’s auto light switch turns on illumination
automatically when you angle the watch for reading
towards your face.
• The auto light switch must be turned on (indicated by
the auto light switch indicator) for it to operate.
• See “Illumination Precautions” for more important
information.
To illuminate the display
In any mode, press L to turn on illumination.
• The above operation turns on illumination regardless of the current auto light switch
setting.
• You can use the procedure below to select either 3 seconds or 5 seconds as the
illumination duration. When you press L, the illumination will remain on for about
3 seconds or 5 seconds, depending on the current illumination duration setting.
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.

and stopwatch (ST1) auto start.
Flash Alert indicator
While the auto light switch is enabled, illumination turns on whenever you position
your wrist as described below in any mode.
Moving the watch to a position that is parallel to the ground and then tilting it
towards you at more than 40 degrees causes illumination to turn on.
• Wear the watch on the outside of your wrist.
Parallel to ground

• While Flash Alert is turned on, the Flash Alert indicator
remains on the display in all modes.
• Note that pressing D to toggle Flash Alert on or off will
also switch timekeeping between 12-hour and 24-hour
format.
Button Operation Tone
The button operation tone sounds any time you press one
of the watch’s buttons. You can turn the button operation
tone on or off as desired.
• Even if you turn off the button operation tone, the
alarms, the Hourly Time Signal, the countdown alarm,
and stopwatch auto start all operate normally.
To specify the illumination duration
1. In the Timekeeping Mode, hold down A until the

To turn the button operation tone on and off
In any mode (except when a setting screen is on the
display), hold down C to toggle the button operation tone
on (MUTE not displayed) and off (MUTE displayed).
• Holding down C to turn the button operation tone on or off also causes the watch’s

Auto Return Features
• If you leave the watch in the Alarm Mode for two or three minutes without performing
any operation, it automatically changes to the Timekeeping Mode.

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 at high speed.
Warning!
• Always make sure you are in a safe place whenever you are reading the watch
using the auto light switch. Be especially careful when running or engaged in
any other activity that can result in accident or injury. Also take care that
sudden illumination by the auto light switch does not startle or distract others
around you.
• When you are wearing the watch, make sure that its auto light switch is turned
off before riding on a bicycle or operating a motorcycle or any other motor
vehicle. Sudden and unintended operation of the auto light switch can create
a distraction, which can result in a traffic accident and serious personal injury.
To turn the auto light switch on and off
In the Timekeeping Mode, hold down B for about three seconds to toggle the auto
light switch on (auto light switch indicator displayed) or off (auto light switch indicator
not displayed).
• The auto light switch indicator is on the display in all modes while the auto light
switch is turned on.
• In order to protect against running down the battery, the auto light switch turns off
automatically approximately six hours after you turn it on.
Initial Screens
When you enter the World Time or Alarm Mode, the data you were viewing when you
last exited the mode appears first.
Timekeeping
• Resetting the seconds to 00 while the current count is in the range of 30 to 59
causes the minutes to be increased by 1. In the range of 00 to 29, the seconds are
reset to 00 without changing the minutes.
• The year can be set in the range of 2000 to 2099.
• The watch’s built-in full automatic calendar 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.
World Time
All World Time Mode times are calculated from the current Home City time in the
Timekeeping Mode using UTC time differential values.
• The seconds count of the World Time is synchronized with the seconds count of the
Timekeeping Mode.
• The UTC differential is a value that indicates the time difference between a
reference point in Greenwich, England and the time zone where a city is located.
• The letters “UTC” is the abbreviation for “Coordinated Universal Time”, which is the
world-wide scientific standard of timekeeping. It is based upon carefully maintained
atomic (cesium) clocks that keep time accurately to within microseconds. Leap
seconds are added or subtracted as necessary to keep UTC in sync with the Earth’s
rotation.

Operation Guide 3031
Illumination Precautions
• The electro-luminescent panel that provides illumination loses power after very long
use.
• Illumination 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.
• Illumination turns off automatically whenever an alarm sounds.
• Frequent use of illumination runs down the battery.
Auto light switch precautions
• Avoid wearing the watch on the inside of your wrist. Doing so causes the auto light
switch to operate when it is not needed, which shortens battery life. If you want to
wear the watch on the inside of your wrist, turn off the auto light switch feature.
• Illumination may not turn on if the face of the watch is
more than 15 degrees above or below parallel. Make
sure that the back of your hand is parallel to the ground.
• Illumination turns off after the preset illumination
duration (see “To specify the illumination duration”),
even if you keep the watch pointed towards your face.
• Static electricity or magnetic force can interfere with
proper operation of the auto light switch. If illumination
does not turn on, try moving the watch back to the
starting position (parallel with the ground) and then tilt it
back towards you again. If this does not work, drop your
arm all the way down so it hangs at your side, and then
bring it back up again.
• Under certain conditions, illumination may not turn on until about one second after
you turn the face of the watch towards you. This does not necessarily indicate
malfunction of the auto light switch.
• You may notice a very faint clicking sound coming from the watch when it is shaken
back and forth. This sound is caused by mechanical operation of the auto light
switch, and does not indicate a problem with the watch.
