1. FEATURES
This watch is a combination solar-powered watch that contains a solar cell in its face that drives the watch
hands, alarm, chronograph, timer and numerous other functions by converting light energy into electrical
energy.
It is also equipped with convenient functions including three power save modes that reduce power
consumption when light is not shining on the solar cell, and a "charge indicator" that roughly indicates how
much the secondary battery is charged.
2. BEFORE USING
This watch is a solar-powered watch. Before using, allow light to shine onto the watch so
that it is sufficiently charged.
If the manual power save function has been activated, cancel it before charging. (Refer to
p.19 for information on the procedure for canceling the manual Power-Save function.)
A rechargeable battery is used in this watch to store electrical energy. This rechargeable battery is a clean
energy battery that does not contain mercury or other toxic substances. Once fully charged, the watch will
continue to run for a maximum of 4 years without additional charging (when in the power save 2 mode). Please
note this is not a user replaceable item.
[Proper Use of this Watch]
To use this watch comfortably, make sure to recharge it before it stops running completely. There is no risk of
overcharging the watch no matter how often it is recharged (Overcharging Prevention Function).
It is recommended that the watch be recharged everyday for optimum performance.

Return to Table of Contents
Return to Table of Contents
[Insufficient Charging Warning Function]
(Analog Display)
Regardless of the display (Mode) of the watch at the time,
when the watch becomes insufficiently charged, the watch
changes to the time display and the second hand begins to
move at two-second-interval movement. Although the 24-hour
hand, hour hand and minute hand continue to keep the correct
time, the watch stops after about 1.5 days have elapsed after
the insufficient charging warning function is activated. When
this happens, charge the watch by exposing to light so that it
returns to one-second-interval movement.
However, if the watch again becomes insufficiently charged
without setting the time after it has been sufficiently charged by
exposing to light as a result of having stopped due to being
insufficiently charged, it will not return to the normal display
unless the time is set after again sufficiently charging.
(Digital Display)
"CHARGE" flashes on digital display area 2 in all modes.
<Digital Display in Each Mode>
• The watch displays the normal time display regardless of the position of the crown (pulled out to the first or
second click) in each mode except for the calendar mode.
• When the watch is in the calendar mode, the normal date display is displayed regardless of the position of the
crown.
Notes:
x Crown operations do not function <except for mode switching (with the crown in the normal position)>
in any of the modes.
x Button operations do not function, except for changing the city name (UP/DOWN), in any of the
modes.
x The alarm tone does not sound even if it is set.
x The chronograph is interrupted and reset even if measurement is in progress.
x Timing by the timer is immediately interrupted even if timing is in progress
x In the case the watch switches to the insufficient charging warning function as a result of being
insufficiently charged, it takes a minimum of 30 minutes for the watch to return to the normal operating
state even if sufficiently exposed to light.
<When the Insufficient Charging Warning Function is Canceled>
When the insufficient charging warning function is canceled as a result of exposing the watch to light and
sufficiently charging, the watch returns to the mode indicated by the mode hand.
Return to Table of Contents
Return to Table of Contents
[Time Setting Warning Function]
(Analog Display)
The watch stops when insufficient charging
continues for about 1.5 days. When the watch
is charged by exposing to light after having
stopped due to insufficient charging, each
hand is rapidly advanced to the base position
and stops. Each hand remains stopped until
the time is reset.
(Digital Display)

17. Power Save Features
[Power Save 1]
When power is not generated as a result of the solar cell not being exposed to light, the second hand stops
when it reaches the zero seconds position and the watch automatically enters the power save state to inhibit
power consumption of the secondary battery.
(Analog Display)
• The second hand stops at the base position (12:00).
• Other hands continue to keep the correct time.
(Digital Display)
In coordination with the analog second hand stopping at the zero seconds’ position, the entire digital display
goes out. However, the alarm, chronograph and other functions continue to measure time internally even
though there is no display.
<Canceling Power Save 1>
Power Save I is canceled when power generation resumes as a result of exposing the solar cell to light.
• The second hand rapidly advances to the current time and begins one-second interval movement.
• The digital display reappears simultaneous to resumption of power generation.
Notes: During the secondary battery is fully charged and the overcharging prevention function is activated, the
power save function is not activated even if power generation is interrupted as a result of the solar cell not
being exposed to light. In addition, the power save function is similarly not activated when the solar cell is
exposed to intense light and temporally becomes fully charged.
[Power Save 2]
When the Power Save I state continues for about 3 days and the minute hand reaches the base position
(12:00), the watch automatically enters the Power Save 2 state.
(Analog Display)
• The minute and second hands stop at the base position (12:00).
• Other hands stop moving at their current locations.
(Digital Display)
• The digital display remains completely out in continuation from the Power Save 1 state.
Notes:
• Crown and button operations do not function in any mode.
• The alarm tone does not sound even if it is set.
• The tone indicating that time is up does not sound in the timer mode.
<Canceling Power Save 2>
Similar to Power Save 1, Power Save 2 is canceled when power generation resumes as a result of exposing
the solar cell to light.
• Each hand rapidly advances to the current time and begins to move.
• The digital display reappears simultaneous to resumption of power generation. However, the chronograph
returns to the reset state and the timer switches to the initial setting display.

19. NOTES REGARDING USE OF THIS WATCH
<Be sure to keep the watch charged at all times>
x Please note that if you routinely wear long sleeves, the watch can easily become insufficiently charged
as a result of it being concealed and unable to be exposed to light.
x When you take the watch off, try to place it in as bright location as possible to ensure that it always
keeps the correct time.
Notes: Charging Precautions
x Avoid recharging at high temperature (over about 60OC/1400F) since this may result in dam- age to the
watch as a result of reaching excessively high temperatures. Examples: Charging the watch in close
proximity to an incandescent lamp, halogen lamp or other light source that can easily reach high
temperatures, charging the watch in a location that reaches high temperatures such as on a car
dashboard.
x When charging the watch with an incandescent lamp, always make sure the watch is at least 50 cm (20
in.) away from the lamp so that it does not reach excessively high temperatures during charging.

(time scale)
A. Navigational Calculation
1. Time required
Example: Obtain the time required for the fight of an aircraft at 180 knots
for 450 nautical miles.
Answer. Align'18’ on the outer scale with the SPEEDINDEX /\ on the inner
scale. Then, "45" on the outer scale corresponds to "2:30" on the inner
scale (time scale). Thus, the time required for the flight is 2 hours and 30
minutes.
2. Knots (air speed)
Example: Obtain the knots (air speed) for 240 nautical miles with a flight
time of 1 hour and 20 minutes.
Answer. Align ‘24’ on the outer scale with "1:20' on the inner scale (time
scale). Then, the SPEED INDEX /\ on the inner scale corresponds to '18’ on
the outer scale. Thus, the air speed for the flight is 180 knots.
3. Flight distance
Example: Obtain the air distance when the air speed is 210 knots and the
flight time is 40 minutes.
Answer. Align ‘21'on the outer scale with the SPEEDINDEX /\ on the inner
scale. Then, "40" on the inner scale corresponds to "14" on the outer scale.
Thus, the air distance of the flight is 140 nautical miles.
4. Rate of fuel consumption
Example: Obtain the rate of fuel consumption (gallons / hour) when the
flight time is 30 minutes and the fuel consumption is 120 gallons.
Answer. Align "12" on the outer scale with "30" on the inner scale. Then,
the SPEED INDEX /\ on the inner scale corresponds to "24" on the outer
scale. Thus, the fuel consumption is 240 gallons per hour.
5. Fuel consumption
Example: Obtain the fuel consumption required for a flight when the vats of
fuel consumption is 250 gallons per hour and the flight time is 6 hours.
Answer. Align "25" on the outer scale with the SPEED INDEX /\ on the inner
scale. Then, "6:00" on the inner scale (time scale) corresponds to "15' on
the outer scale. Thus, the fuel consumption is 1,500 gallons.
6. Estimated flight time
Example: Obtain the estimated flight time when the vats of fuel consumption
is 220 gallons per hour and the aircraft has 550 gallons of fuel.
Answer. Align "22" on the outer scale with the SPEED INDEX /\on the inner
scales. Then, ‘55' on the outer scale corresponds to ‘2:30' on this inner

scale (time scale), Thus, the estimated flight time is 2 hours and 30
minutes.
7. Difference in altitude
The difference in altitude can be obtained from the rate of descent and the
descent time.
Example: Obtain the difference in altitude when an aircraft continues
descending for 23 minutes at a rate of 250 feet per minute.
Answer. Align"25"on the outer scale with "10" on the inner scale. Then,"23"
on the inner scale corresponds to "57.5" on the outer scale. Thus, the
difference in altitude is 5,750 feet.
8. Rate of climb (or descent)
The rate of climb (or descent) ran be obtained from the time required to
reach an altitude.
Example: Obtain the rate of climb when an aircraft reaches an altitude of
7,500 feet after climbing for 16 minutes.
Answer. Align "75" on the outer scale with "16" on the inner scale.
Then,'10'on the inner scale corresponds to "47" on the outer scale. Thus,
the rate of climb is 470 per minute.
9. Time of climb (or descent)
The time required for climb can be obtained from the altitude to be reached
and the rate of climb (or descent).
Example: Obtain the time of climb when an aircraft is to climb to 6,300 feet
at a rate of 550 feet per minute.
Answer. Align "55" on the outer scale with '10’ on the inner scale. Then,
"63" on the outer scale corresponds to "11.5" on the inner scale. Thus, the
time of climb is 11 minutes and 30 seconds.

PRECAUTIONS ABOUT CARE AND
HANDLING OF WATCHES
TEMPERATURE CARE
Avoid temperature extremes. Exposing your watch to high
temperatures, such as placing it on the dashboard of a vehicle
or use in a hot tub, may cause the watch to malfunction,
shorten battery life or damage certain components. Leaving
the watch in extreme cold temperatures may cause irregular
timekeeping until the watch returns to normal operating
temperature.
SHOCK-RESISTANT
The watch may be worn while playing golf or other activities,
but avoid severe shocks such as dropping it on a hard surface.
MAGNETIC-RESISTANT
No problem should occur from using the watch around
ordinary household electric appliances such as TV sets or
stereos. Keep away from magnets.
CHEMICAL/GAS RESISTANT
Do not expose the watch to chemicals or gases for long
periods.
WATCH CLEANING
Stains, waterspots and accumulated dirt on the case, crystal
or band should be removed with a soft cloth to prevent
damage and premature wear.
HANDLING OF WATER-RESISTANT WATCHES
Although water-resistant watches are warranted, steps should
be taken to avoid damage that may result from
accidents or mishandling:
■ Do not operate the crown or push-button in the water or
while the watch is wet. Tighten screw lock crown completely.
■ Should the watch become immersed in water, dry it off
right away. If the watch comes in contact with salt water, be
sure to rinse it thoroughly in warm fresh water to remove any
trace of salt.
■ If a watch is wet from cleaning or by accident, never store it
in a closed container. It should be dried immediately or taken
to a watchmaker or jeweler if moisture is inside the case to
prevent damage from rust.
■ Vital components necessary to resist the entrance of
moisture deteriorate with time and use. Gaskets, crowns and
other materials should be replaced every year or two to ensure
Marking
on the Dial
Marking
on the
Caseback
that water resistant quality remains at factory specifications.
CARE FOR METAL BRACELETS
To extend the life and maintain the good appearance of the
metal watch bracelet, the following recommendations are
given:
■ Be aware that since the watch and bracelet is worn next to
the skin, it collects dust and perspiration and becomes soiled if
not cleaned regularly. This is particularly true of the inner parts
of the links or mesh of the bracelet.
■ Soil and rust, when present in a bracelet, are dissolved by
perspiration and can cause staining of cuffs and
irritation of the skin in some instances.
■ Heavy perspiration should be wiped off the watch and
bracelet with a soft dry cloth. The bracelet should be cleaned
occasionally by using an old toothbrush and warm soapy
water after which the soap is thoroughly rinsed with clear water
and the bracelet dried completely. The foregoing manner of
cleaning should not be done if the watch is not water-resistant
but should instead be done by your jeweler.
CARE FOR STRAPS
LEATHER
■ Heavy perspiration, if not removed from a leather strap, can
wash out the natural oils and cause the leather to become dry
and deteriorate. Any moisture should be blotted with a soft dry
cloth or paper towel and the strap allowed to dry naturally.
■ Salt residue and soil can be removed from the leather by
cleaning with a dampened soft cloth and mild soap or saddle
soap.
■ Occasionally, the inside surface of the strap should be
cleaned by using a soft cloth dampened with alcohol.
■ The strap should always be worn a little loosely (one finger
space between wrist and strap) to allow air to circulate thus
causing any moisture to evaporate.
RUBBER
■ Rubber straps should be washed frequently with mild soap
and warm water using a soft brush.
■ Thorough cleaning, using the same method, should
especially be done after use in salt water.
■ Solvents, oils, perspiration, tanning lotion and salt can cause
rubber to deteriorate if not removed.

Water Resistance
The water-resistant quality of our timepieces is offered in varying degrees depending on the model. This
ranges from non-water resistant models to those suitable for SCUBA diving. Water resistance of our
timepieces is measured in BAR or Barometric Pressure. Each BAR of pressure is equal to 14.5 pounds per
square inch of pressure.
Water resistance is measured when the watch is at a static, or motionless state. As the watch is moved in
water, such as from the motion of swimming, pressure is added from velocity. While you may be swimming in
a pool at surface level, the watch may be experiencing forces equal to that of 100 feet of water pressure
(3 BAR). Diving into a pool can cause forces on the watch to exceed those pressures. As such, you
should always allow a margin of safety when exposing your watch to moisture. Never "push the limit" of
the degree of water resistance of your timepiece.
A primary factor to keep in mind about water resistance is that periodic maintenance is needed to
maintain original factory specifications for water resistance. When a watch is new, it meets
specifications for water resistance as indicated on the case back. However, as the watch ages, the
gaskets that seal the watch become dry and brittle, diminishing its water resistant quality. Exposure to
environments such as chlorinated pools, salt water or soaps from showering can accelerate drying of the
gaskets. We recommend that the gaskets be changed at least every 18 to 24 months to maintain the water
resistant quality of your timepiece. If the watch is frequently exposed to chlorinated pools, soaps salt
water, etc., we recommend that the gaskets be changed on a yearly basis.
From time to time, you may notice condensation that appears then goes away after a short period of time.
This is a normal occurrence and happens primarily from sudden temperature changes. When there are sudden
temperature changes such as entering a cool building from the hot out of doors, or jumping into pool on a
hot day the watch may fog. Conversely, if you go to the cold outdoors from a warm building, fogging may
occur. As long as the fogging clears in a short period of time, there is no need for concern.
Be sure the crown is completely pushed in prior to any contact with moisture. If your model is equipped
with a screw down crown, be sure it is properly seated against the case. Do not operate the crown or any
push button when the watch is wet as this may allow the entrance of moisture. . If at anytime, you notice
moisture in your timepiece that does not clear in a short period of time, you should send your timepiece
as soon as possible to the nearest Authorized Service Center for inspection.
You can determine the level of water resistance of our watches from the markings on your case-back.
Additionally, models that are water resistant to 100 or 200 meters have an indication on the dial as
well. The case-backs and dials are normally marked as follows:
The case back has no indication of water resistance
This indicates the watch is a non water-resistant model and is not designed for contact with moisture at
all. Caution should be exercised to avoid any contact with moisture, such as when washing your hands or
from a rainstorm.
“Water Resist”
This watch is designed to withstand water from accidental splashing, such as from washing your hands or
rain. Any submersion into water may result in the entrance of moisture.
“Water Resist 10BAR” or “W.R. 10BAR”, Dial marked “WR100”
This watch is designed to withstand water pressure up to 333 feet. This includes water exposure from
accidental splashing and rain, but also from showering, swimming in a pool and snorkeling. Be sure to
rinse the watch with fresh water after exposure to a chlorinated pool, salt water, soaps, etc. After
rinsing with fresh water, be sure to dry the exterior with a soft cloth.
“Water Resist 20BAR” or “W.R. 20BAR”, Dial marked “WR200”
This watch is designed to withstand water pressure up to 666 feet. This includes all exposure to water up
to and including recreational SCUBA diving. Be sure to rinse the watch with fresh water after exposure to
a chlorinated pool, salt water, soaps, etc. After rinsing with fresh water, be sure to dry the exterior
with a soft cloth.
Special Note about Jacuzzis and Hot Tubs
The various components used in the manufacture and assembly of your watch expand at various rates. This
results in a loss of the sealing capabilities of gaskets, which may allow moisture to enter. In addition,
heat from these sources can cause deformation of certain materials leading to mechanical failures. For
these reasons, you should remove your watch before entering a hot tub or Jacuzzi.
