Getting Acquainted
Congratulations upon your selection of this CASIO watch. To get the most out of your
purchase, be sure to carefully read this manual and keep it on hand for later reference
when necessary.
• This watch does not have a time zone that corresponds to the Greenwich
Mean Time differential of –3.5 hours. Because of this, the radio-controlled
timekeeping and World Time functions will not display the correct time for
Newfoundland, Canada.
Keep the watch exposed to bright light

Bright Light
Solar cell
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.
Battery charges in the light.
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 digital display of the watch is blank...
If the Power Saving indicator ( PS) is flashing on the display,
it means that the display is blank because the watch’s
Power Saving function has turned it off to conserve power.
Power Saving automatically turns off the display and
enters a sleep state whenever your watch is left for a
certain period in an area where it is dark. If the watch is
kept in the dark for a longer period, the analog hands will
also stop moving after a few days.
• The initial factory default setting is Power Saving on.
• The watch will recover from the sleep state if you move it
to a well-lit area or if you press any button.
• See “Power Saving Function” for more information.

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 automatically picks up the time calibration signal five
times a day at 0:00 a.m., 1:00 a.m., 2:00 a.m., 3:00 a.m., and 4:00 a.m. For more
information, see “About Auto Receive”.
• Manual Receive
Manual receive lets you start time calibration signal reception with the press of a
button. For more information, see “To perform manual receive”.
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.

• Signal reception is normally better at night than during the day.
• Time calibration signal reception takes from two to seven minutes. Take care that
you do not perform any button operations or move the watch during this time.
• When within range of the applicable transmitter, this watch can receive either the
U.S. (Fort Collins, Colorado) or Japanese (Fukushima or Fukuoka/Saga) time
calibration signal. The signal the watch will attempt to pick up depends on its current
Home City code setting as shown below.

1,000
kilometers
• Under good reception conditions, signal reception is possible within a radius of
about 2,000 miles (3,000 kilometers) from the Fort Collins transmitter.
• At distances further than about 600 miles (1,000 kilometers) from the Fort Collins
transmitter, signal reception may not be possible during certain times of year or
times of day. Radio interferance may also cause problems with reception.
• At distances further than about 500 kilometers from the Fukushima and Fukuoka/
Saga transmitter, signal reception may not be possible during certain times of year
or times of day. Radio interferance may also cause problems with reception.
• Even when the watch is within the reception range of the transmitter, signal
reception will be impossible if the signal is blocked by mountains or other geological
formations between the watch and signal source.
• Signal reception is affected by weather, atmospheric conditions, and seasonal changes.
• See the information under “Signal Reception Troubleshooting” if you experience
problems with time calibration signal reception.
About Auto Receive
When auto receive is turned on, the watch automatically starts to receive the time
calibration signal when the time in the Timekeeping Mode reaches 0:00 a.m., 1:00
a.m., 2:00 a.m., 3:00 a.m., and 4:00 a.m. each day (calibration times). The watch will
also perform an additional auto receive at 5:00 a.m. if none of the regularly scheduled
auto receive are successful.
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 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 easily receive the signal.

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.
This watch is designed to receive a time calibration signal late at night. Because of
this, you should place the watch near a window as shown in the illustration when you
take it off at night. Make sure there are no metal objects nearby.
• 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 five calibration times. Do not perform any button operation within seven minutes
before or after any of the five calibration times. Doing so can interfere with correct
calibration.
• Remember that reception of the calibration signal depends on the time kept in the
digital display. The reception will be performed whenever the display shows one of
the five calibration times, regardless of whether or not the displayed time is actually
the correct time.
• When two, three, four, or five receptions are successful, the watch uses the data of
the last reception for calibration. When only one reception is successful, the watch
uses the data of the successful reception.
• 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”.

Power Supply
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.
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 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 4 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.

• The flashing charge indicator ( C ) at Level 3 tells you that battery power is very low,
and that exposure to bright light for charging is required as soon as possible.
• At Level 4, all functions are disabled and settings return to their initial factory
defaults. Functions are enabled once again after the rechargeable battery is
charged, but you need to set the time and date, after the battery reaches Level 2
after dropping to Level 4.
• The Home City reverts to TYO (Tokyo), which means that the watch is configured
to receive the Japanese time calibration signal, whenever battery power drops to
Level 4. If you are using the watch in North America, you will need to configure your
Home City code setting whenever battery power recovers after dropping to Level 4.
• Leaving the watch in direct sunlight or some other very strong light source can cause

Daylight Saving Time (summer time) advances the time setting by one hour from
Standard Time. Remember that not all countries or even local areas use Daylight
Saving Time.
The time calibration signal transmitted from Fort Collins includes both Standard Time
and DST data. When the Auto DST setting is turned on, the watch switches between
Standard Time and DST (summer time) automatically in accordance with the Fort
Collins signal.
• The time calibration signals transmitted from Fukushima and Fukuoka/Saga do not
include summer time data.
• The default DST setting is Auto DST (A) whenever you select HNL, ANC, LAX,
DEN, CHI, NYC, TYO, SEL, or HKG as your Home City code.
• If you experience problems receiving the time calibration signal in your area, it is
probably best to switch between Standard Time and Daylight Saving Time (summer
time) manually.
• 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.
• The Power Saving indicator (PS) is on the display in all modes while the Power
Saving is turned on.
Auto Return Features
• If you leave the watch in the Alarm or Hand Setting Mode, or with the Battery Level
Indicator (HI or MID) 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.

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 within ±15 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 current city code, DST (summer
time), and auto receive settings. The following are the initial factory defaults for these
settings.

• Reception can take up to 14 minutes when the AT option is selected.
• The second hand will advance at high speed to the correct position in accordance
with seconds count of the digital time, and resume normal movement from there.
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 level drops to
Level 4.
• 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
• 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.
