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 even 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.

(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 about 8 hours 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.

Radio-controlled Atomic Timekeeping
This watch receives a time calibration signal and updates its time setting accordingly.
• This watch is designed to pick up the time calibration signals transmitted in Germany
(Mainflingen), England (Anthorn), the United States (Fort Collins), China
(Shangqiu), and Japan (Fukushima, Fukuoka/Saga).
• See the information under “Signal Reception Troubleshooting” if you experience
problems with time calibration signal reception.
Current Time Setting
This watch adjusts its time setting automatically in accordance with a time calibration
signal. You also can 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 “To set the time
and date manually” 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.
• As of January 2008, China does not use Daylight Saving Time (DST). If China does
go to the Daylight Saving Time system in the future, some functions of this watch
may no longer operate correctly.
lll
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 (five times for the China signal). When any auto receive is successful,
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!
• When getting ready to receive the time calibration signal, position the watch as
shown in the nearby illustration, with its 12 o’clock side pointing 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.

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 a calibration time. Do not perform any button
operation within 14 minutes before or after the calibration times. Doing so can
interfere with correct calibration.
• Remember that reception of the calibration signal depends on the current time in
your Home City, as kept in the Timekeeping Mode.
To perform manual receive
1. Place the watch on a stable surface so its 12 o’clock
Receiving
side is facing towards a window.
2. In the Timekeeping Mode, hold down A for about two
seconds until the watch beeps.
3. The digital display will go blank, and the left dial hand
will move to R (READY). This indicates that the watch is
getting ready for time calibration signal reception.
• See the information under “Signal Reception
Troubleshooting” if you experience problems.
• The left dial hand will move to W (WORK) and stay there
while actual reception is in progress.
• If signal reception is unstable during reception, the left
W (WORK) R (READY)
dial hand may move between W (WORK) and
Receive successful
R (READY).
• The hour and minute hands continue to keep time
normally.
• 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.
• When a signal receive operation is successful, GET
appears on the upper display and the lower display
shows the time and date of the successful operation.
Receive failed
The watch will adjust its time setting in accordance to
with the information provided by the signal.
• The watch will return to the Timekeeping Mode if you
press A or if you do not perform any operation for
about one or two minutes.
• ERR will appear on the upper display if the receive
operation is not successful. The watch will not adjust its
time setting in this case. Press A to return to the
Timekeeping Mode.
Note
• To interrupt a receive operation and return to the Timekeeping Mode, press any

Warning!
• Always make sure you are in a safe place whenever you are reading the
display of the watch using the auto light switch. Be especially careful when
running or engaged in any other activity that can result in accident or injury.
Also take care that sudden illumination by the auto light switch does not
startle or distract others around you.
• When you are wearing the watch, make sure that its auto light switch is turned
off before riding a bicycle or operating a motorcycle or any other motor
vehicle. Sudden and unintended operation of the auto light switch can create a
distraction, which can result in a traffic accident and serious personal injury.

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 even 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. Be 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.
• All data stored in memory is deleted, and the current time and all other settings
return to their initial factory defaults whenever battery power drops to Level 5 (CHG)
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.
Battery Power Indicator and Power Recovery Mode indicator
The battery power indicator indicates you the current status of the rechargeable
battery’s power.
To illuminate the display manually
In any mode (except a setting mode), press B to turn on
the illumination for about one second.
• The above operation turns on illumination regardless of
the current auto light switch setting.
About the Auto Light Switch
Turning on the auto light switch causes illumination to turn on, whenever you position
your wrist as described below in any mode.
Note that this watch features a “Full Auto LED Light”, so the auto light switch operates
only when available light is below a certain level. It does not illuminate the display
under bright light.
• The auto light switch is always disabled, regardless of its on/off setting, when any
one of the following conditions exists.
-While an alarm is sounding
-While a signal receive operation is in progress
Moving the watch to a position that is parallel to the ground and then tilting it towards
you more than 40 degrees causes illumination to turn on.
• Wear the watch on the outside of your wrist.
Parallel to
ground
ll
An LED (light-emitting diode) illuminates the face of the
watch for easy reading in the dark. The watch’s auto light
switch turns on illumination automatically when you angle
the watch towards your face.

• The flashing LOW indicator at Level 3 (L) tells you that battery power is very low,
and that exposure to bright light for charging is required as soon as possible.
• At Level 5 (CHG), all functions are disabled and settings return to their initial factory
defaults. Once the battery reaches Level 2 (M) after falling to Level 5 (CHG),
reconfigure the current time, date, and other settings.
• Display indicators reappear as soon as the battery is charged from Level 5 (CHG) to
Level 2 (M).
• The watch’s Home City code setting will change automatically to TYO (Tokyo)
whenever the battery drops to Level 5 (CHG). 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, or China you will need to change the Home
City code setting to match your location whenever the battery drops to Level 5
(CHG).
• Leaving the watch exposed to direct sunlight or some other very strong light source
can cause the battery power indicator to show a reading temporarily that is higher
than the actual battery level. The correct battery level should be indicated after a few
minutes.

• Overuse of display illumination or the beeper can cause
the RECOV (Recover) indicator to appear in the upper
display, which indicates that the watch is in the battery
power recovery mode. Face illumination, the alarm, the
countdown timer alarm, time signals, and all hand
operations are disabled in the power recovery mode.
The watch continues to keep time internally, so normal
timekeeping and function will resume as soon as battery
power recovers to normal levels, which is indicated
when the RECOV indicator disappears.
•If RECOV appears frequently, it probably means that
remaining battery power is low. Leave the watch in bright
light for some time to allow it to charge.

• Auto DST (AvtA) can be selected only while LIS, LON, MAD, PAR, ROM,
BER, STO, ATH, MOW, TPE, SEL, TYO, HNL, ANC, YVR, LAX, YEA,
DEN, MEX, CHI, MIA, YTO, NYC, YHZ, or YYT is selected as the Home
City code. For more information, see “Daylight Saving Time (DST)” below.
• The day of the week is displayed automatically in accordance with the date (year,
month, and day) settings.
12-hour and 24-hour timekeeping
• With the 12-hour format, the P (PM) indicator appears to the left of the hour digits 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.
• The 12-hour/24-hour timekeeping format you select in the Timekeeping Mode is
applied in all other modes.
Daylight Saving Time (DST)
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 signals transmitted from Mainflingen (Germany), Anthorn
(England), and Fort Collins (the United States) include 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 signals.
• Though the time calibration signals transmitted by the Fukushima and Fukuoka/
Saga, Japan transmitters include summer time data, summer time currently is not
implemented in Japan (as of 2008).
• The default DST setting is Auto DST (AvtA) whenever you select LIS, LON,
MAD, PAR, ROM, BER , STO, ATH, MOW, TYO, ANC, YVR, LAX, YEA,
DEN, MEX, CHI, MIA, YTO, NYC, YHZ, or YYT as your Home City code.
• If you experience problems receiving the time calibration signal in your area, it
probably is best to switch between Standard Time and Daylight Saving Time
(summer time) manually.

Dual Time
This watch is preset with a number of city codes, each of which represents the time
zone where that city is located. When setting the time, it is important that you first
select the correct city code for your Home City (the city where you normally use the
watch). If your location is not included in the preset city codes, select the preset city
code that is in the same time zone as your location.
• Note that all of the times for the World Time City codes and Dual Time City are
displayed in accordance with the time and date settings you configure for the
Timekeeping Mode.
Dual Time lets you display the current time in another time zone called your “Dual
Time City”, in addition your Home City’s current time. This feature is very handy for
business professionals and others who need to keep track of the current time in two
different time zones.
• For information about how to display the current time in the Dual Time City in the
lower display, see “Timekeeping”.

Transmitters
The time calibration signal received by this watch depends on the currently
selected Home City code.
• When a U.S. time zone is selected, the watch receives the time calibration signal
transmitted from the United States (Fort Collins).
• When a Japanese time zone is selected, the watch receives the time calibration
signals transmitted from Japan (Fukushima and Fukuoka/Saga).
• When a European time zone is selected, the watch receives the time calibration
signals transmitted from Germany (Mainflingen) and England (Anthorn).
• When a China time zone is selected, the watch receives the time calibration signal
transmitted from China (Shangqiu City).
• When your Home City is LIS, LON, MAD, PAR, ROM, BER, STO, ATH, MOW (which
can receive both the Anthorn and Mainflingen signals), the watch first tries to pick up
the signal it last received successfully. If that fails, it tries the other signal. For the first
receive after you select your Home City, the watch tries the nearest signal first
(Anthorn for LIS, LON, Mainflingen for MAD, PAR, ROM, BER, STO, ATH, and MOW).
Auto Return Features
• If you leave the watch with a flashing setting on the display for two or three minutes
without performing any operation, the watch will exit the setting mode automatically.
• The watch will return to the Timekeeping Mode automatically if you do not perform
any operation for two or three minutes in the Alarm Mode.
High-Speed Movement
• The D and B buttons are used to change the hand setting in various setting
modes. In most cases, holding down these buttons will start high-speed movement
of the applicable hand(s).

Power Saving Function
When turned on, the Power Saving function enters a sleep
state automatically whenever the watch is left in an area
for a certain period where it is dark. The table below
shows how watch functions are affected by the Power
Saving function.
• 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 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 when battery power drops to Level 5 (CHG).
• The current time for all city codes in the Timekeeping Mode and World Time Mode is
calculated in accordance with the Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) for each city,
based on your Home City time setting.

Radio-controlled Atomic Timekeeping Precautions
• Strong electrostatic charge can cause the time setting to be thrown off.
• 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 update the date and day of the week automatically 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.
• If you are in an area where proper time calibration signal reception is impossible, the
watch keeps the 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, and DST
(summer time) settings.
• The Home City setting reverts to the initial default of TYO (Tokyo) whenever the
battery power drops to Level 5 (CHG) or when you have the rechargeable battery
replaced. If this happens, change the Home City to the setting you want.
• 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 battery.
Auto light switch precautions
• The auto light switch is turned off automatically whenever battery power is at Level 4
(CHG).
• Avoid wearing the watch on the inside of your wrist. Doing so causes the auto light
switch to operate when it is not needed, which shortens battery life. If you want to
wear the watch on the inside of your wrist, turn off the auto light switch feature.
More than 15 degrees
too high
• Illumination may not turn on if the face of the watch is
more than 15 degrees above or below parallel. Make
sure that the back of your hand is parallel to the ground.
• Illumination turns off in about one second, even if you
keep the watch pointed towards your face.
• Static electricity or magnetic force can interfere with proper operation of the auto
light switch. If illumination does not turn on, try moving the watch back to the starting
position (parallel with the ground) and then tilt it back toward you again. If this does
not work, drop your arm all the way down so it hangs at your side, and then bring it
back up again.
• Under certain conditions, illumination may not turn on until about one second after
you turn the face of the watch towards you. This does not necessarily indicate
malfunction of the auto light switch.
• You may notice a very faint clicking sound coming from the watch when it is shaken
back and forth. This sound is caused by mechanical operation of the auto light
switch, and does not indicate a problem with the watch.
