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.
• With the 12-hour format, the P 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.
E-36
• 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
• All World Time Mode times are calculated from the current Home City time in the
Timekeeping Mode using UTC time differential values.
• 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.

• Do not use this watch for scuba diving or other types of diving that requires air tanks.
E-40
• Watches that do not have WATER RESIST or WATER RESISTANT marked on the
back cover are not protected against the effects of sweat. Avoid using such a watch
under conditions where it will be exposed to large amounts of sweat or moisture, or to
direct splashing with water.
• Even if a watch is water-resistant, do not operate its buttons or crown while it is
submersed in water or wet.
• Even if a watch is water-resistant, avoid wearing it in the bath or in areas where
detergents (soap, shampoo, etc.) are being used. Such conditions can reduce water
resistance.
• After submersion in seawater, use plain water to rinse all salt and dirt from the watch.
• In order to maintain water resistance, have the gaskets of your watch replace periodically
(about once every two or three years).
• A trained technician will know how to check your watch for proper water resistance
whenever you have its battery replaced. Battery replacement requires the use of special
tools. Always request battery replacement from your original retailer or from an
authorized CASIO Service Center.
• Some water-resistant watches come with fashionable leather bands. Avoid swimming,
washing, or any other activity that causes direct exposure of a leather band to water.
E-41
• The inside surface of the watch glass may fog when the watch is exposed to a sudden
drop in temperature. No problem is indicated if the fogging clears up relatively quickly.
If the fogging does not clear or if water has gotten into the watch, take the watch in for
repair immediately.
• Continued use of the watch with water inside can result in damage to electronic and
mechanical components, the face of the watch, etc.
Band
• Tightening the band too tightly can cause you to sweat and make it hard for air to pass
under the band, which can lead to skin irritation. Do not fasten the band too tightly.
There should be enough room between the band and your wrist so you can insert your
finger.
• Deterioration, rust, or corrosion of the band can cause it to break, which may result in
the watch falling off your wrist and becoming lost. Be sure to take good care of the
band and keep it clean. Should you notice any breakage, discoloration, looseness or
other problem with the band, immediately contact your original retailer or an authorized
CASIO Service Center to have it checked, repaired, or replaced. Note that you will be
charged for any repair or replacement of the band.
E-42
Temperature
• Never leave the watch on the dashboard of a car, near a heater, or in any other location
that is subject to very high temperatures. Do not leave the watch where it will be exposed
to very low temperatures, either. Temperature extremes can cause the watch to lose or
gain time, to stop, or otherwise malfunction.
• Leaving the watch in an area hotter than +60°C (140°F) for long periods can lead to
problems with its LCD. The LCD may become difficult to read at temperatures lower
than 0°C (32°F) and greater than +40°C (104°F).
Impact
• Your watch is designed to withstand impact incurred during normal daily use and light
activity such as playing catch, tennis, etc. Dropping the watch or otherwise subjecting
it to strong impact, however, can lead to malfunction.
Note that watches with shock-resistant designs (G-SHOCK, Baby-G, G-ms) can be
worn while operating a chain saw or engaging in other activities that generate strong
vibration, or while engage in strenuous sports activities (motocross, etc.).
E-43
Magnetism
• The hands of analog and combination (analog-digital) watches are moved by a motor
that uses magnetic force. When such a watch is close to a device (audio speakers,
magnetic necklace, cell phone, etc.) that emits strong magnetism, the magnetism can
cause timekeeping to slow down, speed up, or stop, resulting in the incorrect time
being displayed.
Electrostatic Charge
• Exposure to very strong electrostatic charge can cause the watch to display the wrong
time. Very strong electrostatic charge even can damage electronic components.
• Electrostatic charge can cause the display to go blank momentarily or cause a rainbow
effect on the display.
Chemicals
• Do not allow the watch to come into contact with thinner, gasoline, solvents, oils, or
fats, or with any cleaners, adhesives, paints, medicines, or cosmetics that contain
such ingredients. Doing so can cause discoloration of or damage to the case, resin
band, leather band, and other parts.
E-44
Storage
• If you do not plan to use the watch for a long time, wipe it thoroughly free of all dirt,
sweat, and moisture, and store it in a cool, dry place.
Resin Components
• Allowing the watch to remain in contact with other items or storing it together with other
items for long periods while it is wet can cause the color of the other items to transfer
to the resin components of the watch. Be sure to dry off the watch thoroughly before
storing it and make sure it is not in contact with other items.
• Leaving the watch where it is exposed to direct sunlight (ultraviolet rays) for long periods
or failure to clean dirt from the watch for long periods can cause it to become discolored.
• Friction caused by certain conditions (frequent external force, sustained rubbing, impact,
etc.) can cause discoloration of painted components.
• If there are printed figures on the band, strong rubbing of the printed area can cause
discoloration.
• Failure to clean dirt from the watch for long periods can cause fluorescent color to
fade. Wash dirt off with water as soon as possible and then dry the watch.
E-45
• Semi-transparent resin parts can become discolored due to sweat and dirt, and if
exposed to high temperatures for long periods.
• Contact an authorized CASIO Service Center to have resin components replaced.
Note that you will be charged for replacement costs.
Natural Leather and Imitation Leather Bands
• Allowing the watch to remain in contact with other items or storing it together with other
items while it is wet for long periods can cause the color of the other items to transfer
to the natural leather or imitation leather band of the watch. Be sure to dry off the watch
thoroughly before storing it and make sure it is not in contact with other items.
• Leaving a leather band where it is exposed to direct sunlight (ultraviolet rays) for long
periods or failure to clean dirt from a leather band for long periods can cause it to
become discolored.
Important!
• Subjecting a natural leather or imitation leather band to rubbing or dirt can cause color
transfer and discoloration.
E-46
Metal Components
• Failure to clean dirt from a metal band can lead to formation of rust, even if the band is
stainless steel or plated. If the watch is exposed to sweat or water, wipe it thoroughly
with a soft, absorbent cloth and then store it in a well-ventilated location to dry.
• To clean the band, use a soft toothbrush or similar tool to scrub it with a weak solution
of water and a mild neutral detergent. Take care to avoid getting solution on the watch

Bacteria and Odor Resistant Band
• The bacteria and odor resistant band protects against odor generated by the formation
of bacteria from sweat, which ensures good comfort and hygiene. In order to ensure
maximum bacteria and odor resistance, keep the band clean. Use an absorbent soft
cloth to wipe the band clean of dirt, sweat, and moisture. The bacteria and odor resistant
band suppresses the formation of organisms and bacteria. It does not protect against
rash due to allergic reaction, etc.

User Maintenance
Caring for Your Watch
• A dirty or rusty case or band can soil the sleeve of your clothing, cause skin irritation,
and even interfere with watch performance. Be sure to keep the case and band clean
at all times. Rust tends to form easily after the watch is exposed to seawater and then
left without cleaning.
• Sometimes a smudge like pattern may appear on the surface of a resin band. This will
not have any affect on your skin or clothing. Wipe the band with a cloth to clean it.
• Keep a leather band clean by wiping it with a dry cloth. Both resin bands and leather
band can become worn and cracked over time when subjected to normal daily use.
• Should your band become badly cracked or worn, be sure to have it replaced with a
new one. Request band replacement from your original retailer or an authorized CASIO
Service Center. Note that you will be charged for band replacement costs, even if your
watch is still covered by its warranty.
• Remember that you wear your watch next to your skin, just like a piece of clothing.
Because of this, you should always keep your watch clean. Use a soft, absorbent cloth
to wipe off any dirt, sweat, water, or other foreign matter from the case and band.

Dangers of Poor Watch Care
Rust
• Though the stainless steel used for the watch is highly rust-resistant, rust can form if
the watch is not cleaned after it becomes dirty. Failure of oxygen to come into contact
with the metal because it is dirty causes breakdown of the oxidization layer on the
metal surface, which leads to the formation of rust.
• Even if the surface of the metal appears clean, sweat and rust in crevasses can soil
the sleeves of clothing, cause skin irritation, and even interfere with watch performance.
Premature Wear
• Leaving sweat or water on a resin band or storing it an area subject to high moisture
can lead to premature wear, cuts, and breaks.
Skin Irritation
• Individuals with sensitive skin or in poor physical condition may experience skin irritation
when wearing a watch. Such individuals should keep their leather band or resin band
particularly clean, or switch to a metal band. Should you ever experience a rash or
other skin irritation, immediately remove the watch and contact a skin care professional.

Battery Replacement
• Leave battery replacement up to your original retailer or authorized CASIO Service
Center.
• Have the batteries replaced only with the type specified by in this manual. Use of other
types of batteries can cause malfunction.
• When replacing the batteries, also request a check for proper water resistance. Note
that you will be charged separately for water resistance inspection.
Initial Batteries
• The batteries that come loaded in your watch when you purchase it are used for function
and performance testing at the factory.
• These types of test batteries may go dead quicker than the normally rated battery life
as noted in the User’s Guide. Note that you will be charged for replacement of these
batteries, even if replacement is required within the watch’s warranty period.
Low Battery Power
• Low battery power is indicated by large timekeeping error, when display contents are
dim, or when the display does blank.
• Operation while battery power is low can result in malfunction. Replace the batteries
as soon as possible.
