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, leave
it in a location where it is
exposed to light.
x Best charging
performance is achieved
by exposing the watch
to the strongest light
available.
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-19) 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 Allowing the watch to become very hot can cause the digital displays to black out.
The appearance of the LCD should become normal again when the watch returns
to a lower temperature.
x Turn on the watch’s Power Saving function (page E-19) and keep it in an area
normally exposed to bright light when storing it for long periods. This helps to
ensure that power does not run down.
E-12
E-13
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.
Expose the watch to bright light whenever possible.
Power Levels
You can get an idea of the watch’s power level by observing the battery power
indicator in the lower digital dial.

E-15
x At Level 5, all functions are disabled and settings return to their initial factory
defaults. Once the battery reaches Level 2 (M) after falling to Level 5, reconfigure
the current time, date, and other settings.
x Display indicators reappear as soon as the battery is charged from Level 5 to
Level 2 (M).
x 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.
x The current time and all other settings return to their initial factory defaults
whenever battery power drops to Level 5 and when you have the battery replaced.
Power Recovery Mode
x Performing multiple illumination, beeper, and/or high-speed hand movement
operation during a short period may cause all of the battery power indicators (H,
M, and L) to start flashing in the lower digital dial. This indicates that the watch is in
the power recovery mode. Illumination, alarm, countdown timer alarm, and hourly
time signal operations will be disabled until battery power recovers.
x Battery power will recover in about 15 minutes. At this time, the battery power
indicators (H, M, L) will stop flashing. This indicates that the functions listed above
are enabled again.
x If all of the battery power indicators (H, M, L) are flashing and the CHG (charge)
message also is flashing, it means the battery level is very low. Expose the watch
to bright light as soon as possible.
x Frequent flashing of all of the battery power indicators (H, M, L) probably means
that remaining battery power is low. Leave the watch in bright light to allow it to
charge.

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-48) 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.

Important!
x The areas covered by MOW, HNL and ANC are quite far from the calibration signal
transmitters, so certain conditions may cause reception problems.
x When HKG or BJS 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
configure Home City settings” (page E-42) for information about how to do this.

Signals are receivable in the Taiwan area
when reception conditions are good.
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.
E-24
To get ready for a receive operation
1. Confirm that the watch is in the Timekeeping Mode. If it isn’t, use C to enter the
Timekeeping Mode (page E-38).
2. The antenna of this watch is located on its 12 o’clock side. Position the watch
with 12 o’clock facing towards a window as shown in the nearby illustration.
Make sure there are no metal objects nearby.
x Signal reception normally is better
at night.
x The receive operation takes from three
12 o’clock
to eight minutes, but in some cases
it can take as long as 16 minutes.
or
Take care that you do not perform any
button operation or move the watch
during this time.
E-25
x Signal reception may be difficult or even impossible under the conditions
described below.
Inside or
among
buildings

3. What you should do next depends on whether you are using Auto Receive or
Manual Receive.
x Auto Receive: Leave the watch over night in the location you selected in step 2.
See “Auto Receive” below for details.
x Manual Receive: Perform the operation under “To perform manual receive” on
page E-29.
Auto Receive
x With Auto Receive, the watch performs the receive operation each day
automatically up to six times (up to five times for the Chinese calibration signal)
between the hours of midnight and 5 a.m. (according to the Timekeeping Mode
time). When any receive operation is successful, none of the other receive
operations for that day are performed.
x When a calibration time is reached, the watch will perform the receive operation
only if it is in the Timekeeping Mode or World Time Mode. The receive operation
is not performed if a calibration time is reached while you are configuring settings,
while a countdown timer operation is in progress, or while the hands have been
moved for easier viewing of the digital dials (page E-79).

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.
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.
More than
40°
Warning!
x Always make sure you are in a safe place whenever you are reading the
face 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.
x When you are wearing the watch, make sure that its auto light switch is
turned off before riding on 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.
Note
x This watch features a “LED”, so the auto light switch operates only when available
light is below a certain level. It does not illuminate the face under bright light.
Wear the watch on the
outside of your wrist
E-70
E-71
x 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 receive operation is in progress
To turn the auto light switch on and off
In the Timekeeping Mode, hold down B for about three
seconds to toggle the auto light switch on (indicator
displayed in the right digital dial) and off (indicator not
displayed).
x The auto light switch on indicator appears in all modes
while the auto light switch is turned on.
x The auto light switch turns off automatically whenever
battery power drops to Level 4 (page E-15).
Illumination Precautions
x LED panel that provides illumination loses power after very long use.
x Illumination may be hard to see when viewed under direct sunlight.
x Illumination turns off automatically whenever an alarm sounds.
x Frequent use of illumination runs down the battery.
Auto light switch precautions
x Wearing the watch on the inside of your wrist, movement of your arm, or vibration
of your arm can cause frequent activation of the auto light switch and illumination
of the face. To avoid running down the battery, turn off the auto light switch
whenever engaging in activities that might cause frequent illumination of the face.
x Note that wearing the watch under your sleeve while the auto light switch is turned
on can cause frequent illumination of the face and can run down the battery.

E-72
E-73
x 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.
x Illumination turns off after the preset illumination duration (page
E-69), even if you keep the watch pointed towards your face.
x 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 towards your face 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.
x 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.
Hand Home Position Adjustment
Strong magnetism or impact can cause the hands of the watch to be off, even if the

Troubleshooting
Time Setting
See “Radio Controlled Atomic Timekeeping” (page E-21) for information about
adjusting the time setting according to a time calibration signal.
■ The current time setting is off by hours.
Your Home City setting may be wrong (page E-42). Check your Home City setting
and correct it, if necessary.
■ The current time setting is off by one hour.
If you are using the watch in an area where time calibration signal reception is
possible, see “To configure Home City settings” (page E-42).
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 standard time/daylight saving
time (DST) setting manually. Use the procedure under “To change the current time
and date settings manually” (page E-48) to change the standard time/daylight
saving time (DST) setting.
E-84
E-85
■ 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-75).
■ The analog hands are not indicating the correct time.
If the HANDS indicator is displayed on the right digital dial, it means that the analog
hands have been moved for easier viewing of the digital dials. Hold down C for
about four seconds to return to the Timekeeping Mode.
World Time Mode
■ The time for my World Time City is off in the World Time Mode.
This could be due to incorrect switching between standard time and daylight saving
time. See “To specify standard time or daylight saving time (DST) for a city” (page
E-54) for more information.
Charging
■ The watch does not resume operation after I expose it to light.
This can happen after the power level drops to Level 5 (page E-15). Continue
exposing the watch to light until the battery power indicator shows H or M.
Time Calibration Signal
