Operation Guide 5098/5099/5101
When wearing the watch, make sure that its face is not
blocked from light by the sleeve of your clothing.
x The watch may enter a sleep state (page E-15) if its face is
blocked by your sleeve even only partially.
Warning!
Leaving the watch in bright light for charging 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.
x On the dashboard of a car parked in direct sunlight
x Too close to an incandescent lamp
x Under direct sunlight
Important!
x Keep the watch in an area normally exposed to bright light when storing it for long
periods. This helps to ensure that power does not run down.
x 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 power to run down.
Make sure that the watch is exposed to bright light whenever possible.

x Even when the watch is within range of a transmitter, signal reception may be
impossible due to the effects of geographic contours, structures, weather, the time
of year, the time of day, radio interference, etc. The signal becomes weaker at
distances of approximately 500 kilometers, which means that the influence of the
above conditions becomes even greater.
x Signal reception may not be possible at the distances noted below during certain
times of the year or day. Radio interference may also cause problems with
reception.
− Fukushima or Fukuoka/Saga (Japan) transmitters: 500 kilometers (310 miles)
− Shangqiu (China) transmitter: 500 kilometers (310 miles)
x As of January 2011, 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.
x Using this watch in a country covered by a time calibration that is different from the
countries it supports may result in incorrect time indication due to local application
of summer time, etc.

Troubleshooting
Hand Movement and Position
■ The x Second Hand is moving at two second intervals.
■ All regular timekeeping hands are stopped at 12 o’clock, the n Minute Hand
(elapsed time) is at its home position (0), and none of the buttons work.
Power may be low. Expose the watch to light until the x Second Hand starts moving
normally, at one-second intervals (page E-12).
■ The hands of the watch suddenly start moving at high speed, even when I do
not perform any operation.
This could be due to any one of the following causes. In all cases, the hand movement
does not indicate malfunction, and should stop shortly.
x The watch is recovering from a sleep state (page E-15).
x The time setting is being adjusted following a successful auto time calibration
signal receive operation (page E-16).
■ The current time setting is off by hours.
Your location setting may be wrong. Check your location setting and correct it, if
necessary (page E-27).
■ The hands are off.
This could indicate that the watch has been exposed to magnetism or strong impact,
which has caused problems with proper hand alignment. Adjust the watch’s hand
home position alignment (page E-34).
Charging
■ The watch does not resume operation after I expose it to light.
This can happen after the power level drops to Level 3 (page E-12). Continue
exposing the watch to light until the x Second Hand starts moving normally (at onesecond intervals).
E-40
E-41
■ The x Second Hand starts to move at one-second intervals, but then suddenly
returns to moving at two-second intervals.
The watch probably is not sufficiently charged yet. Continue keeping it exposed to
light.
Time Calibration Signal
The information in this section applies only when HONG KONG (HKG) or TOKYO
(TYO) is selected as the current location. You need to adjust the current time
manually when OFF is selected as the current location.
■ The x Second Hand indicates NO (N) when I check the result of the latest
receive operation.
Possible Cause
Remedy
Page
x You are wearing or moving the watch,
or performing a button operation
during the signal receive operation.
x The watch is in an area with poor
reception conditions.
Keep the watch in an area where
reception conditions are good while
the signal receive operation is being
performed.
E-19
You are in an area where signal
reception is not possible for some
reason.
