Getting Acquainted
Congratulations upon your selection of this CASIO watch. To get the most out of your
purchase, be sure to read this manual carefully.
Keep the watch exposed to bright light
The electricity generated by the solar cell of the watch is
stored by a built-in battery. Leaving or using the watch
where it is not exposed to light causes the battery to run
down. Make sure the watch is exposed to light as much as
possible.
• When you are not wearing the watch on your wrist,
position the face so it is pointed at a source of bright
light.
• You should try to keep the watch outside of your sleeve
as much as possible. Charging is reduced significantly if
the face is only partially covered.

• The watch continues to operate, even when it is not exposed to light. Leaving the
watch in the dark can cause the battery to run down, which will result in some watch
functions to be disabled. If the battery goes dead, you will have to re-configure watch
settings after recharging. To ensure normal watch operation, be sure to keep it
exposed to light as much as possible.

• Frequent display illumination can run down the battery quickly and require charging.
The following guidelines give an idea of the charging time required to recover from a
single illumination operation.
Approximately five minutes exposure to bright sunlight coming in through a
window
Approximately 50 minutes exposure to indoor fluorescent lighting
• Be sure to read “Power Supply” for important information you need to know
when exposing the watch to bright light.
If the display of the watch is blank...
If the display of the watch is blank, it means that the watch’s Power Saving function
has turned off the display to conserve power.
• See “Power Saving Function” for more information.
Bumps on the Solar Cell Surface
The surface of the solar cell has bumps in some locations. These bumps are electrical
contacts and do not indicate any problem with the solar cell.

This watch adjusts its time setting automatically in
accordance with a time calibration signal. You can also
perform a manual procedure to set the time and date,
when necessary.
• The first thing you should do after purchasing this watch
is to specify your Home City (the city where you
normally will use the watch). For more information, see
“To specify your Home City” below.
• When using the watch outside the areas covered by the time signal transmitters, you
will have to adjust the current time setting manually as required. See “Timekeeping”
for more information about manual time settings.
• The Timekeeping Mode can be used to display the current time and date in your
Home City, or the current time in your Home City (Home Time) and in one more time
zone (Zone 2 Time). You can even specify a city code that supports time calibration
signal reception as the Dual Time Zone 2 city code. For details about Dual Time, see
“Timekeeping”.
• The U.S. time calibration signal can be picked up by the watch while in North
America. The term “North America” in this manual refers to the area that consists of
Canada, the continental United States, and Mexico.

Important!
• Normally, your watch should show the correct time as soon as you select your Home
City code. If it does not, it should adjust automatically after the next auto receive
operation (in the middle of the night). You can also perform manual receive or you
can set the time manually.
• The watch will receive the time calibration signal automatically from the applicable
transmitter (in the middle of the night) and update its settings accordingly. For
information about the relationship between city codes and transmitters, see “Home
City Codes and Transmitters”.
• Under factory default settings, auto receive is turned off for all of the following city
codes: MOW (Moscow), HKG (Hong Kong), BJS (Beijing), HNL (Honolulu), and
ANC (Anchorage). For details about turning on auto receive for these city codes, see
“To turn auto receive on and off”.
• You can disable time signal reception, if you want. See “To turn auto receive on and
off” for more information.
• See the maps under “Reception Ranges” for information about the reception ranges
of the watch.
• If you are in an area that does not use Daylight Saving Time (summertime), turn off
the DST setting.
Time Calibration Signal Reception
There are two different methods you can use to receive the time calibration signal:
auto receive and manual receive.
• Auto Receive
With auto receive, the watch receives the time calibration signal automatically up to
six times a day. When any auto receive is successful, the remaining auto receive
operations are not performed. For more information, see “About Auto Receive”.
• Manual Receive
Manual receive lets you start a time calibration receive operation with the press of a
button. For more information, see “To perform manual receive”.
Important!
• When getting ready to receive the time calibration signal, position the watch as
shown in the nearby illustration, with its 12 o'clock side facing towards a window.
Make sure there are no metal objects nearby.

• Signal reception normally is better at night than during the day.
• Time calibration signal reception takes from one to seven minutes, but in some
cases it can take as long as 13 minutes. Take care that you do not perform any
button operations or move the watch during this time.
• The time calibration signal the watch will attempt to pick up depends on its current
Home City code setting as shown below. If you use the watch in Japan or Europe
(each of which has two different transmitter locations), it will try to receive the time
calibration signal from one of the transmitters in your current location. If it cannot
receive the signal, it will then try to receive the time calibration signal from the other
transmitter.
Note
• When a calibration time is reached, the watch will receive the calibration signal only
if it is in either the Timekeeping Mode or World Time Mode. Reception is not
performed if a calibration time is reached while you are configuring settings.
• Auto receive 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 receive the signal easily.
• The watch receives the calibration signal for one to seven minutes everyday when
the time in the Timekeeping Mode reaches each of the calibration times. Avoid
performing any button operation within seven minutes before or after any one of the
calibration times. Doing so can interfere with correct calibration.
• Remember that reception of the calibration signal depends on the current time in the
Timekeeping Mode. The receive operation will be performed whenever the display
shows any one of the calibration times, regardless of whether or not the displayed
time actually is the correct time.
About the Receiving Indicator
The receiving 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.

Power Supply
This watch is equipped with a solar cell and a special rechargeable battery (secondary
battery) that is charged by the electrical power produced by the solar cell. The
illustration shown below shows how you should position the watch for charging.
Example: Orient the watch so its face
is pointing at a light source.
• The illustration shows how to position
a watch with a resin band.
• Note that charging efficiency drops
when any part of the solar cell is
blocked by clothing, etc.
• You should try to keep the watch
outside of your sleeve as much as
possible. Charging is reduced
significantly if the face is covered even
partially.

• The LOW indicator flashes on the Timekeeping Mode Time/Date screen whenever
the battery is at Level 2. You cannot change from the Time/Date screen to the dual
time screen while the battery is at Level 2.
• The LOW indicator at Level 2 and the flashing charge indicator (CHG) at Level 3 tell
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 time and date, after the battery reaches Level 3 (indicated by the
flashing charge indicator) from Level 4. You will not be able to configure any of the
other settings until the battery reaches Level 1 after dropping to Level 4.
• The watch’s Home City code setting will change automatically to TYO (Tokyo)
whenever the battery drops to Level 4. With this Home City code setting, the watch is
configured to receive the time calibration signals of Japan. If you are using the watch
in North America or Europe, you will need to change the Home City code setting to
match your location whenever the battery drops to Level 4.
• If you use the light or alarms a number of times during a short period, the recover
indicator (RECOV) appears and the following operations become disabled until
battery power recovers.

After some time, battery power will recover and the recover indicator will disappear,
indicating that the above functions are enabled again.
Charging Precautions
Certain charging conditions can cause the watch to become very hot. Avoid leaving
the watch in the areas described below whenever charging its rechargeable battery.
Also note that allowing the watch to become very hot can cause its liquid crystal
display to black out. The appearance of the LCD should become normal again when
the watch returns to a lower temperature.
Charging Guide
After a full charge, timekeeping remains enabled for up to about 9 months.

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. Make sure that the watch is exposed to bright light whenever
possible.
• This watch uses a special rechargeable battery to store power produced by the solar
cell, so regular battery replacement is not required. However, after very long use, the
rechargeable battery may lose its ability to achieve a full charge. If you experience
problems getting the special rechargeable battery to charge fully, contact your dealer
or CASIO distributor about having it replaced.
• Never try to remove or replace the watch’s special battery yourself. Use of the wrong
type of battery can damage the watch.
• The current time and all other settings return to their initial factory defaults whenever
battery power drops to Level 4 and when you have the 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.

• See “City Code Table” for a complete list of available city codes.
• Auto DST ( ) can be selected only while LIS, LON, MAD, PAR, ROM, BER, STO,
ATH, MOW, HKG, BJS, TPE, SEL, TYO, HNL, ANC, YVR, LAX, YEA, DEN, MEX,
YWG, CHI, MIA, YTO, NYC, YHZ, or YYT is selected as the Home City code. For
more information, see “Daylight Saving Time (DST)” below.
5. Press A to exit the setting screen.
Daylight Saving Time (DST)
Daylight Saving Time (summer time) advances the time setting by one hour from
Standard Time. Remember that not all countries or even local areas use Daylight
Saving Time.
The time calibration signals transmitted from Mainflingen (Germany), Rugby
(England), or Fort Collins (the United States) include both Standard Time and DST
data. When the Auto DST setting is turned on, the watch switches between Standard
Time and DST (summer time) automatically in accordance with the signals.
• The time calibration signals transmitted from Fukushima and Fukuoka/Saga (Japan)
do not include summer time data.
• The default DST setting is Auto DST ( ) whenever you select LIS, LON, MAD,
PAR, ROM, BER, STO, ATH, MOW, TYO, HNL, ANC, YVR, LAX, YEA, DEN, MEX,
YWG, CHI, MIA, YTO, NYC, YHZ, or YYT as your Home City code.
• If you experience problems receiving the time calibration signal in your area, it
probably is best to switch between Standard Time and Daylight Saving Time
(summer time) manually.
To change the Daylight Saving Time (summer time) setting
1. On the Timekeeping Mode Dual Time screen, make sure the time whose DST
setting you want to change is in the Home Time position on the display.
• You must make separate DST settings for the Home Time and the Zone 2 Time.
2. Press A so the city code is flashing. This is the setting screen.
3. Press C and the DST setting screen appears.
4. Use D to cycle through the DST settings in the sequence shown below.

Reference
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.
Button Operation Tone
MUTE indicator
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 alarm,
Hourly Time Signal, and Countdown Timer Mode alarm
all operate normally.
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).
• Since the C button is also the mode change button, holding it down to turn the
button operation tone on or off also causes the watch’s current mode to change.
• The MUTE indicator is displayed in all modes when the button operation tone is
turned off.
Power Saving Function
Power saving indicator
When turned on, the Power Saving function enters a
sleep state automatically whenever the watch is left in an
area where it is dark for a certain period. The table below
shows how watch functions are affected by the Power
Saving function.
The B and D buttons are used in various modes and setting screens to scroll
through data. In most cases, holding down these buttons during a scroll operation
scrolls through the data at high speed.
Initial Screens
When you enter the World Time or Alarm Mode, the data you were viewing when you
last exited the mode appears first.
Radio-controlled Atomic Timekeeping Precautions
• Strong electrostatic charge can result in the wrong time being set.
• 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.
• Even if the time calibration signal is received properly, certain conditions can cause
the time setting to be off by up to one second.
• The current time setting in accordance with the time calibration signal takes priority
over any time settings you make.
• The watch is designed to update the date and day of the week automatically for the
period January 1, 2000 to December 31, 2099. Setting of the date by a time
calibration signal cannot be performed starting from January 1, 2100.
• This watch can receive signals that differentiate between leap years and non-leap
years.
• 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.
• Normally, the signal reception date shown by the Receive Mode is the date data
included in the received time calibration signal. When only time data is received,
however, the Receive Mode shows the date as kept in the Timekeeping Mode at the
time of signal reception.
• If you are in an area where proper time calibration signal reception is impossible, the
watch keeps time within ±20 seconds a month at normal temperature.
• If you have problems with proper time calibration signal reception or if the time
setting is wrong after signal reception, check your current city code, DST (summer
time), and auto receive settings.
• You can change the time and city code setting only of the time that is currently in the
Home Time position on the Dual Time screen. You cannot change the settings of
Zone 2 Time position. If you want to change the time or city code setting of the Zone
2 Time, first move it to the Home Time position. After making the changes, you can
move the time back to the Zone 2 Time position.
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 day of the week is displayed automatically in accordance with the date (year,
month, and day) settings.
• 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 or when battery power drops to
Level 4.
• The times for the Timekeeping Mode and all the city codes of the World Time Mode
are calculated in accordance with each city’s UTC differential.
• 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 “Universal Time Coordinated”, 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.
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 PM indicator (P) appears on the display for times in the
range of noon to 11:59 p.m. and 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, without
any indicator.

• Wearing the watch inside the sleeve of clothing can cause it to enter the sleep state.
• The watch will not enter the sleep state between 6:00 AM and 10:59 PM. If the
watch is already in the sleep state when 6:00 AM arrives, however, it will remain in
the sleep state.
The watch has an EL (electro-luminescent) panel that causes the entire display to
glow for easy reading in the dark. In any mode (except when a setting screen is on the
display), press B to illuminate the display for about one second.
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.
