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.

Solar cell
(Converts light to
electrical power.)
• The actual level at which some functions are disabled depends on the watch model.
• 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 5 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.

This watch receives a time calibration signal and updates
its time setting accordingly.
• Supported time calibration signals: Germany
(Mainflingen), England (Anthorn), United States (Fort
Collins), Japan.
Current Time Setting
Month
Day
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”.
• 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 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.
• The analog time of this watch is synchronized with the digital time. Because of this,
the analog time setting is automatically adjusted whenever you change the digital
setting. See “Analog Timekeeping” for more information.

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 “Approximate 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!
• The antenna of this watch is located on its 12 o’clock side. Position the watch with
12 o’clock facing towards a window as shown in the nearby illustration. 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 two to seven minutes, but in some
cases it can take as long as 14 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 two to 14 minutes everyday when the
time in the Timekeeping Mode reaches each of the calibration times. Avoid
performing any button operation within 14 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.
• Calibration signal reception is disabled while a countdown timer operation is
in progress.
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.

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 only partially
covered.
Solar cell
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 normally 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 5 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.

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
lll
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 Precautions
To recover from the sleep state
Perform any one of the following operations.
• Move the watch to a well-lit area.
• Press any button.
ll
• Leaving the watch in direct sunlight or some other very strong light source can
cause the battery level indicator to show a reading that is momentarily higher than
the actual battery level. The correct battery level indicator should appear after a few
minutes.
• The watch’s Home City code setting will change automatically to TYO (Tokyo)
whenever the battery drops to Level 5. 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 5.
• If you use the illumination or alarms a number of times during a short period, the
hands of the watch will stop. Battery level indicator will show R at this time. Also, the
following operations will become disabled until battery power recovers.
Illumination
Beeper tone
Time calibration signal reception
After some time, battery power will recover and the above functions will be enabled
again.
Auto Return Features
• If you leave the watch in the Alarm or Hand Setting Mode, or with the battery level
indicator displayed 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 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 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 with the precision noted in “Specifications”.
• 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.
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 or when battery power drops to
Level 5.
• 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.
• 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.
Illumination Precautions
• Illumination may be hard to see when viewed under direct sunlight.
• Illumination automatically turns off whenever an alarm sounds.
• Frequent use of illumination runs down the battery.
• 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 9:59 PM. If the watch
is already in the sleep state when 6:00 AM arrives, however, it will remain in the
sleep state.
