Charging the Watch
The face of the watch is a solar panel that generates power from light. The generated
power charges a built-in rechargeable battery, which powers watch operations. The
watch charges whenever it is exposed to light.
Charging Guide
Whenever you are not
wearing the watch, be sure
to leave it in a location
where it is exposed to light.
x Best charging
performance is achieved
by exposing the watch to
light that is as strong as
possible.
When wearing the watch,
makes 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-22) 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.

You can get an idea of the watch’s power level by
observing the movement of the x Second Hand in the
Timekeeping Mode.
x If the x Second Hand is moving normally at one-second
intervals, power is at Level 1.
x If the x Second Hand is moving at two-second intervals,
power is at Level 2, which is quite low. Expose the watch
to light as soon as possible so it can charge.

x When power drops to Level 3, all functions will be disabled but the watch will
continue to keep time internally for about one week. If you recharge the battery
sufficiently during this period, the analog hands will move automatically to the
correct setting and regular timekeeping will resume. After one week, all settings
(including timekeeping) will be cleared. Recharging the battery will reset all settings
to their initial factory defaults.
E-19
Operation Guide 5142
x A short while after exposing the watch to light after its battery charge has run down
will cause the x Second Hand to move counterclockwise until it stops at second 57
on the face. This indicates that charging has started. See page E-21 for information
about required charging times.
Power Recovery Mode
The watch is designed to go into a power recovery mode that stops hand operation
temporarily whenever power suddenly drops below a certain level due to overuse
of the alarm tone over a short period. Note that all operations are disabled while the
watch is in the power recovery mode.
The hands will move to the correct positions and the watch will resume normal
operation after power recovers (in about 15 minutes). Putting the watch in a location
where it is exposed to light will help power to recover sooner.

Radio Controlled Atomic Timekeeping
This watch receives a time calibration signal and updates its time setting accordingly.
However, when using the watch outside of areas covered by time calibration signals,
you will have to adjust the settings manually as required. See “Configuring Current
Time and Date Settings Manually” (page E-55) for more information.
This section explains how the watch updates its time settings when the city code
selected as the Home City is in Japan, North America, Europe, or China, and is one
that supports time calibration signal reception.
If your Home City Code setting is this:
The watch can receive the signal from
the transmitter located here:
LON (LONDON), PAR (PARIS), ATH (ATHENS)
Anthorn (England), Mainflingen
(Germany)
HKG (HONG KONG)
Shangqiu City (China)
TYO (TOKYO)
Fukushima (Japan), Fukuoka/Saga
(Japan)
HNL (HONOLULU), ANC (ANCHORAGE),
LAX (LOS ANGELES), DEN (DENVER),
CHI (CHICAGO), NYC (NEW YORK)
Fort Collins, Colorado (United States)
E-24
E-25
Important!
x The areas covered by HNL (HONOLULU) and ANC (ANCHORAGE) are quite far
from the calibration signal transmitters, so certain conditions may cause reception
problems.
x When HNL (HONOLULU) or HKG (HONG KONG) is selected as the Home City,
only the time and date are adjusted according to the time calibration signal. You
need to switch manually between standard time and daylight saving time (DST) if
required. See “To toggle the Home City time between standard time and daylight
saving time” (page E-51) for information about how to do this.

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
conditions listed above 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.
− Mainflingen (Germany) or Anthorn (England) transmitters: 500 kilometers (310
miles)
− Fort Collins (United States) transmitter: 600 miles (1,000 kilometers)
− Fukushima or Fukuoka/Saga (Japan) transmitters: 500 kilometers (310 miles)
− Shangqiu (China) transmitter: 500 kilometers (310 miles)
x As of December 2010, 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 signal that is different
from the countries it supports may result in incorrect time indication due to local
application of daylight saving time (summer time), etc.

Mode Disk Pointers
The v Mode Disk uses three different pointers to indicate a variety of different
information: a mode pointer, a split pointer, and a lap pointer.
Mode Pointer
The mode pointer is in a fixed position. Whenever you enter a mode, the v Mode
Disk will rotate until the current mode indicator (AL, TR, ST, TM, or WT) is aligned
with the mode pointer. The mode pointer is also used for indication of standard time
(STD or STD-AT) and daylight saving time (DST or DST-AT).
E-38
Mode Reference Guide
Split Pointer
The split pointer is marked on the v Mode Disk. Whenever you enter the Stopwatch
Split Mode (page E-63), it indicates the current status of the stopwatch operation.
While a normal stopwatch elapsed time measurement operation is in progress, the
split pointer will point to RUN. When a split time is indicated by the hands (which are
temporarily stopped), the split pointer will point to SPL. Stopping the elapsed time
measurement operation will cause the split pointer to move to STP (stop).
Lap Pointer
The lap pointer is marked on the v Mode Disk. Whenever you press B to perform
lap time measurement in the Stopwatch Mode, the v Mode Disk will rotate so the
lap pointer points at the current lap number (1 through 5). If the current lap number is
greater than 5, the lap pointer will point at .

Troubleshooting
Hand Movement and Position
■ I lost track of what mode the watch is in.
Refer to “To select a mode” (page E-41). To return directly to the Timekeeping Mode
from any other mode, press and hold the crown button (without unlocking the crown)
for at least two seconds.
■ When pressing the crown button to enter the Stopwatch Split Mode from
the Timekeeping Mode, the crown needs to be held down longer than when
switching to another mode.
The watch is designed this way in order to ensure that the Timekeeping Mode is not
exited unintentionally due to accidental pressing of the crown button. When entering
the Stopwatch Split Mode from the Timekeeping Mode, press the crown button and
hold it down until the mode changes.

■ The x Second Hand is moving at two-second intervals.
■ All the watch’s hands are stopped at 12 o’clock 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-18).
■ 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-23).
x The time setting is being adjusted following a successful auto time calibration
signal receive operation (page E-24).
x The watch is returning to the Timekeeping Mode automatically from the Alarm Mode
(page E-78).

■ Hands suddenly stop moving. Button operation also is disabled.
The watch may be in the power recovery mode (page E-20). Do not perform any
operation until the hands return to their normal positions (in about 15 minutes). The
hands should return to their correct positions when normal operation returns. To help
power recover, leave the watch in a location where it is exposed to light.
■ The current time setting is off by hours.
Your Home City setting may be wrong. Check your Home City setting and correct it, if
necessary (page E-45).
■ The current time setting is off by one hour.
x If you are using the watch in an area where time calibration signal reception is
possible, see “To configure Home City settings” (page E-45).
E-94
x The watch’s STD-AT (standard time)/DST-AT (daylight saving time) setting can be
configured for auto switching in accordance with a time calibration signal. You also
can manually override the STD/DST setting configured by the calibration signal.
If you use manual override to select a setting, timekeeping will be off by one hour
following an STD/DST switching data in your area, even if the watch is receiving a
time calibration signal. Select the correct STD (standard time)/DST (daylight saving
time) setting to suit your current location (page E-48).
x If you are using in the watch in an area where time calibration signal reception is
not possible, you may need to change your Home City’s STD (standard time)/DST
(daylight saving time) setting manually. Use the procedure under “To toggle the
Home City time between standard time and daylight saving time” (page E-51) to
change the STD/DST setting.
■ The hands and/or day indications are off.
This could indicate that the watch has been exposed to magnetism or strong impact,
which has caused problems with proper hand and day alignment. Adjust the watch’s
hand and day home position alignment (page E-88).
E-95
Crown Operations
■ The watch seems to change modes on its own.
The watch will change modes whenever you press the button part of the crown. You
can disable mode switching when the crown button is pressed, if you want.
See “To disable crown button mode switching” (page E-8).
■ The watch will not change modes.
Crown button mode switching may be disabled. Re-enable crown button mode
switching.
See “To re-enable crown button mode switching” (page E-9).
■ Nothing happens when I rotate the crown while it is pulled out.
You did not perform any operation for more than three minutes while the crown was
pulled out, causing operation to become disabled automatically. Push the crown in
and pull it back out again to re-enable operation.
See “Using the Crown” (page E-3).
E-96
■ Nothing happens when I press the crown button.
To prevent unintentional operation, the button press operation of the crown is disabled
automatically for about eight seconds after you push the crown back in. It will become
re-enabled after about eight seconds.
See “Pushing the Crown In” (page E-7).
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-18). Continue
exposing the watch to light until the x Second Hand starts moving normally (at onesecond intervals).

x Try again later.
■ The current time setting changes after I set it manually.
You may have the watch configured for Auto Receive of the time calibration signal
(page E-32), which will cause the time to be adjusted automatically according to your
currently selected Home City. If this results in the wrong time setting, check your
Home City setting and correct it, if necessary (page E-45).
