two or three minutes without performing any operation, it automatically changes to
the Timekeeping Mode.
• If you leave a screen with flashing digits or a cursor on the display for two or three
minutes without performing any operation, the watch automatically saves any
settings you have made up to that point and exits the setting screen.
When the analog setting does not match the time shown
on the digital display, use this mode to correct the analog
setting.
• This watch features separate digital and analog
timekeeping. Note that the digital time and analog time
are independent of each other, and must be set
separately.
To set the analog time
1. Hold down A while in the Hand Setting Mode until
L/set starts to flash.

the buttons. Press any button to stop.
• 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 year can be set in the range of 2000 to 2039.
• 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 batteries replaced.
World Time
• The seconds count of the World Time is synchronized with the seconds count of the
Timekeeping Mode.
• The world time that appears in the Timekeeping Mode screen always uses 24-hour
format, regardless of the watch’s current 12/24-hour setting.
• The current time in all World Time Mode cities is calculated in accordance with the
Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) differential for each city, based on the current Home
City time setting in the Timekeeping Mode.
• The GMT differential is the time difference of the time zone where the city is located
from Greenwich Mean Time.
• GMT differential is calculated by this watch based on Universal Time Coordinated
(UTC) data.
Illumination Precautions
The display of the watch is illuminated by an LED (light-emitting diode) and a light
guide panel 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 two seconds.
• Illumination may be hard to see when viewed under direct sunlight.
• Illumination turns off automatically whenever an alarm sounds.
• Frequent use of illumination runs down the batteries.
Character List
• The analog time setting does not stop automatically when it reaches the current
time. You must stop the hands manually.
• Note that the hands can be advanced only and cannot be moved back. Take care
so you do not go past the setting you want to make.
3. After you set the analog time, press A to exit the setting screen.
• Depending on your timing when you operate the D button, the above operation can
cause the minute hand timing to become late. If this happens, repeat the above
operation to correct the minute hand timing.
