Note
• Auto receive is performed only if the watch is in the Timekeeping Mode or World
Time Mode when one of the calibration times is reached. It is not performed if a
calibration time is reached while an alarm is sounding, or while you are configuring
settings (while settings are flashing on the display).
• When a reception starts, the second hand will move at high speed to the 12 o’clock
position where it will stop until the reception is complete.
• 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 easily receive the signal.
• When auto receive is turned on, 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 time kept 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
Timekeeping Mode 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.
• The second hand will advance at high speed to the correct position in accordance
with the digital time seconds count, and resume normal movement from there.
• For information about city codes that support signal reception, see “To set your
Home City”.

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.
Auto Return Features
• If you leave the watch in the Alarm or Hand Setting Mode for two or three minutes
without performing any operation, it automatically returns to the Timekeeping Mode.
• If you leave the watch with a flashing setting on the display for two or three minutes
without performing any operation, the watch automatically exits the setting screen.
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 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 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.
• The watch is designed to automatically update the date and day of the week for the
period January 1, 2000 to December 31, 2099. Setting of the date by the 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 last signal screen is the date data
included in the received time calibration signal. When only time data is received,
however, the last signal screen 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 Home City code, DST (summer
time), and auto receive settings. The following are the initial factory defaults for these
settings.

Transmitters
This watch is designed to receive the time calibration signal transmitted from Rugby,
England and the signal from Mainflingen, Germany.
• The following explains how the watch determines which transmitter it should check
first.
Module 4378
In this case:
The watch does this:
The first signal auto search operation
1. Checks the Mainflingen signal first.
after factory default settings are in effect, 2. If the Mainflingen signal cannot be
or after the city code has been changed
received, checks the Rugby signal.
Any case other than the above.
1. Checks the last successfully received
signal first.
2. If the last successfully received signal
cannot be received, checks the other
signal.
Module 4379
In this case:
The watch does this:
The first signal auto search operation
1. Checks the Rugby signal first.
after factory default settings are in effect, 2. If the Rugby signal cannot be received,
or after the city code has been changed
checks the Mainflingen signal.
Any case other than the above.
1. Checks the last successfully received
signal first.
2. If the last successfully received signal
cannot be received, checks the other
signal.

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 automatically displayed 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.
• The current time for all city codes in the Timekeeping Mode and World Time Mode is
calculated in accordance with the Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) differential for each
city, based on your Home City time 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.
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 P (PM) indicator 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.
Illumination Precautions
An LED (light-emitting diode) and a light guide panel illuminate the digital display for
easy reading in the dark. In any mode, press B to illuminate the display for about one
second.
• The illumination provided by the light may be hard to see when viewed under direct
sunlight.
• Illumination automatically turns off whenever an alarm sounds.
• Frequent use of illumination shortens the battery operating time.
