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.
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. Even if the face of the watch is
blocked only partially from light, charging will be reduced
significantly.

Radio-controlled Timekeeping
This watch receives a time calibration signal and updates its time setting accordingly.
The time calibration signal includes both Standard Time and Daylight Saving Time
(summer time) data.
• This watch switches automatically between Standard Time and Daylight Saving Time
in accordance with the time calibration signal it receives. There is no indicator
showing whether the time currently shown by the watch is Standard Time or Daylight
Saving Time.
• This watch is designed to pick up the time calibration signal transmitted in Germany
(Mainflingen) and England (Anthorn).
• See the information under “Signal Reception Troubleshooting” if you experience
problems with time calibration signal reception.
Current Time Setting
This watch adjusts its time setting automatically in accordance with a time calibration
signal. You also can perform a manual procedure to set the time, when necessary.
• The first thing you should do after purchasing this watch is to specify a GMT
differential, which is the time differential between GMT and the location where
you normally will use the watch. For more information, see “To specify a GMT
differential” below.
• When using the watch outside the range of the Germany and England time signal
transmitters, you have to adjust the current time setting manually as required. See
“Timekeeping” for more information about manual time settings.
To specify a GMT differential

3. Press B to exit the setting mode.
• The watch also will return to the Timekeeping Mode if
you do not perform any operation for about two or three
minutes.
• Normally, your watch should show the correct time as soon as you select a GMT
differential. 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.
• Even if the time calibration signal is received correctly, there are some times when
the analog hands may not indicate the correct time. If this happens, use the
procedures under “Adjusting the Home Positions” to check the home positions of the
hands, and make adjustments as required.
• 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 GMT differential values and transmitters,
see “Transmitters”.
• See the maps under “Approximate Reception Ranges” for information about the
reception ranges of the watch.
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.

Note
• The auto receive operation is performed only if the watch is in the Timekeeping
Mode when one of the calibration times is reached. It is not performed if a calibration
time is reached while you are configuring settings.
• 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 receive the signal easily.
• The watch receives the calibration signal for two to seven minutes everyday when
the time in the Timekeeping Mode reaches each of the calibration times. Do not
perform 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.
To perform manual receive
1. Place the watch on a stable surface so its 12 o’clock
side is facing towards a window.
2. In the Timekeeping Mode, hold down A for about two
seconds until the second hand moves to READY (R).
This indicates that the watch is getting ready to receive
the time calibration signal.
• The second hand will move to WORK (W) and stay there
while actual reception is in progress.
WORK
READY
• The hour and minute hands continue to keep time
normally.
• Time calibration signal reception takes from two to
seven minutes, but in some cases it can take up to 14
minutes. Take care that you do not perform any button
operations or move the watch during this time.
• If reception is successful, the second hand will move to
Y (YES). One or two minutes later, the hands will move
to the correct time.

N
Note
• To interrupt a receive operation and return to the Timekeeping Mode, press any
button.
• If reception is not successful, the second hand will move to N (NO). One or two
minutes later, the second hand will resume normal operation, without any
adjustment of the hand setting.
• If the second hand is pointing to Y (YES) or N (NO), you can return to the
Timekeeping Mode by pressing any button.

Operation Guide 4325 4326
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.
Solar cell
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. Even if the face of the watch
is blocked from light only partially,
charging will be reduced significantly.

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.
Auto Return Features
• If you leave the watch in the Home Position Adjustment Mode and Receive Result
Mode for two or three minutes without performing any operation, it will return to the
Timekeeping Mode automatically.
• If you do not perform any operation for about two or three minutes while a setting
mode is selected, the watch will exit the setting mode automatically.
High-speed Hand Movement
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 2 and when you have the battery replaced.
• Keep the watch in an area normally exposed to bright light when storing it for long
periods. This helps to keep the rechargeable battery from going dead.

3. Press A to advance to AM/PM switching.
• This will cause the second hand to perform one full rotation starting from its
current position (either AM or PM), and then stop at its original current position.
4. Press B to toggle the second hand between AM and PM.
5. Coordinating with a time signal on the radio or TV, press A to restart normal
timekeeping. The second hand will move to 12 o’clock (zero seconds) at the start of
timekeeping.
• If you press A without changing the time setting (hour, minute, AM/PM), the second
hand will move to the current time position and timekeeping will resume from there.
• This watch normally receives a time calibration signal late at night. However, if you
configure the wrong AM/PM setting in step 3 of the above procedure, the watch will
start signal reception automatically during the afternoon. Signal reception during the
day is not as good as nighttime reception, so a wrong AM/PM setting can cause
signal reception problems.

• The B button is used to change the hand setting in various setting modes. In most
cases, holding down the B button will start high-speed movement of the applicable
hand(s).
• High-speed movement of the hands will continue until it completes a 12-hour cycle,
or until you press any button to stop it.
Radio-controlled Timekeeping Precautions
• Strong electrostatic charge can result in the wrong time being set.
• The time calibration signal bounces 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 manually.
• 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 the GMT differential setting.
The initial factory default GMT differential setting is GMT +1 (Module 4325) or
GMT +0 (Module 4326).
Transmitters
This watch is able to receive time calibration signals transmitted in Germany
(Mainflingen) and England (Anthorn). The following explains how the watch
determines which transmitter it should check first.
When GMT differential GMT+1 or GMT+2 is selected:
• When all hands stop at 12 o’clock (Level 2), it means that battery power is quite low.
Expose the watch to light as soon as possible to charge the battery.
• When battery power is at Level 2, time calibration signal reception is disabled.
• At Level 2, all functions are disabled and settings return to their initial factory defaults.
• Even if the battery level drops to point that all functions become disabled, you still
will be able to recharge the battery and use the watch again.
Charging Precautions
In this case:
The watch does this:
The first signal search
operation after the GMT
differential setting has been
changed
1. Checks the Mainflingen signal first.
2. If the Mainflingen signal cannot be received,
checks the Anthorn signal.
The second and subsequent
signal searches
1. Checks the signal of the transmitter of the first
receive operation (Anthorn or Mainflingen).
2. If the checked signal cannot be received, checks
the other signal.
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.
Warning!
Leaving the watch in bright light to charge its rechargeable battery can cause it
to become quite hot. Take care when handling the watch to avoid burn injury.
The watch can become particularly hot when exposed to the following
conditions for long periods.
• On the dashboard of a car parked in direct sunlight
• Too close to an incandescent lamp
• Under direct sunlight
When GMT differential GMT+0 is selected:
In this case:
The watch does this:
The first signal search
operation after the GMT
differential setting has been
changed
1. Checks the Anthorn signal first.
2. If the Anthorn signal cannot be received, checks
the Mainflingen signal.
The second and subsequent
signal searches
1. Checks the signal of the transmitter of the first
receive operation (Anthorn or Mainflingen).
2. If the checked signal cannot be received, checks
the other signal.
Charging Guide
After a full charge, timekeeping remains enabled for up to about four months.
• The following table shows the amount of time the watch needs to be exposed to light
each day in order to generate enough power for normal daily operations.

Timekeeping
• The current time in the Timekeeping Mode is calculated in accordance with the
current Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) differential setting.
• GMT differential is calculated by this watch based on Universal Time Coordinated
(UTC*) data.
* UTC 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. The reference point for UTC is Greenwich,
England.
• Since these are the specs, we can include all the technical details.
• Watch is not exposed to light
• Internal timekeeping
• 6 minutes of signal reception per day
• Stable operation is promoted by frequent charging.
