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.

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.
You can set up to three independent multi-function
alarms with hour, minutes, month, and day. When an
alarm is turned on, the alarm tone sounds when the alarm

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.
Alarm Operation
The alarm tone sounds at the preset time for 10 seconds, regardless of the mode the
watch is in. In the case of the snooze alarm, the alarm operation is performed a total
of seven times, every five minutes, until you turn the alarm off.
••Alarm and Hourly Time Signal operations are performed in accordance with the
Timekeeping Mode time.
••To stop the alarm tone after it starts to sound, press any button.
••Performing any one of the following operations during a 5-minute interval between
snooze alarms cancels the current snooze alarm operation.

Illumination
Auto light switch indicator
This watch has an EL (electro-luminescent) panel that
causes 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 (except when a setting screen is on the display), press B 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 1.5 seconds or 3 seconds as the
illumination duration. When you press B, the illumination will remain on for about
1.5 seconds or 3 seconds, depending on the current illumination duration setting.
To specify the illumination duration
1. In the Timekeeping Mode, hold down A until the
seconds start to flash, which indicates the setting
screen.
2. While the seconds are flashing, press B to toggle the
setting between 1.5 seconds ( ) and 3 seconds ( ).
3. Press A to exit the setting screen.
About the Auto Light Switch
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.
4. Press A to exit the setting screen.
••The Flash Alert setting you select with the above procedure is applied in all modes.
••When Flash Alert is on,
appears on the timekeeping screen for about one
second whenever you enter the Stopwatch, Countdown Timer, or Alarm Mode.
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.
Mute indicator
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 indicator not displayed) and off (mute indicator
displayed).
••Holding down C 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.
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.
••If you leave a screen with flashing digits on the display for two or three minutes
without performing any operation, the watch automatically exits the setting screen.

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.

Operation Guide 3247
••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.
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 will turn off automatically if an alarm starts to sound while Flash Alert is
turned off. When Flash Alert is turned on, illumination will flash with the alarm.
••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
More than 15 degrees
than 15 degrees above or below parallel. Make sure that the
too high
back of your hand is parallel to the ground.
••Illumination turns off after the preset illumination duration
(see “To specify the illumination duration” (page E-33)),
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.
