23
Eco-Drive (solar-powered) watch handling precautions
<Replacement of Rechargeable Cell>
•This watch utilizes a special rechargeable cell that does not require periodical replacement.
However power consumption may increase after using the watch for a number of years due
to wear of internal components and deterioration of oils. This may cause stored power to be
depleted at a faster rate. For optimal performance, we recommend having your watch inspected
every 2-3 years for proper operation and condition check.
WARNING
Handling of Rechargeable Cell
•The rechargeable cell should never be removed from the watch.
If for any reason it becomes necessary to remove the rechargeable cell from the watch, keep out
of the reach of children to prevent accidental swallowing.
If the rechargeable cell is accidentally swallowed, consult a doctor immediately.
•Do not dispose of the rechargeable cell with ordinary garbage. Please follow the instructions of
your municipality regarding collection of batteries to prevent the risk of fire or environmental
contamination.
24
Eco-Drive (solar-powered) watch handling precautions
WARNING
Use Only the Specified Battery
•Never use a battery other than the rechargeable cell specified for use in this watch.
Although the watch structure is designed so that it will not operate when another type of
battery is installed, if a conventional watch battery or other type of battery is installed in the
watch and the watch is recharged, there is the risk of overcharging which may cause the battery
to rupture.
This can cause damage to the watch and injury to the wearer.
When replacing the rechargeable cell, always make sure to use the designated rechargeable cell.

30
Precautionary items and usage limitations
CAUTION
When Wearing Your Watch
<Band>
•Leather bands and rubber (urethane) bands will deteriorate over time due to perspiration dirt.
Because of the natural materials, leather band will be worn, deformed, and discolored over
time. It is recommended to replace the band periodically.
•The durability of a leather band may be affected when wet (fading, peeling of adhesive), owing
to the properties of the material. Moreover, wet leather may cause a rash.
•Do not stain a leather band with substances containing volatile materials, bleach, alcohol
(including cosmetics). Discoloration and premature aging may be occurred. Ultraviolet light
such as direct sunlight may cause discoloration or deformation.
•It is recommended to take off the watch if it gets wet, even if the watch itself is water-resistant.
•Do not wear the band too tightly. Try to leave enough space between the band and your skin to
allow adequate ventilation.
•The rubber (urethane) band may be stained by dyes or soil present in or on clothing or other
accessories. Since these stains may not be removable, caution is required when wearing your
watch with items that tend to easily transfer color (articles of clothing, purses, etc.). In addition,
the band may be deteriorated by solvents or moisture in the air. Replace with a new one when it
has lost elasticity or become cracked.
31
Precautionary items and usage limitations
CAUTION
When Wearing Your Watch (continued)
•Please request adjustment or repair of the band in the following cases:
•You notice an abnormality with the band due to corrosion.
•The pin of the band is protruding.

paint stores light (daylight or artificial light) and glows in a dark place.
It is free from any radioactive substance or any other material harmful to a human body or
environment.
•The light emission will appear bright at first and then diminish as time passes.
•The duration of the light (“glow”) will vary depending on the brightness, types of and
distance from a light source, exposure time, and the amount of the paint.
•The paint may not glow and/or may dissipate quickly if exposure to light was not sufficient.
35
Warranty and Service
<Free Guarantee>
In the case a malfunction has occurred during the course of normal use while the watch is still
under warranty, the watch will be repaired free of charge in accordance with the conditions of the
warranty included with this manual.
<Stock Period of Repair Parts>
Our standard period for stocking repair parts for each model is generally seven year. When an
exterior part such as the watch case, glass, dial, hand, crown or band is damaged, a spare part
with different appearance may sometimes be used.
<Repair Period>
Repairs can be performed on your watch within the repair parts stock period even after the free
guarantee has expired. However, you will be charged for these repairs. Please take the watch to
the shop where you purchased it and ask whether it can be repaired because the repair period
varies according to the conditions of use, environment and so forth. Moreover, there are cases
in which it is difficult to restore the watch to its original accuracy when decreased accuracy has
resulted from long-term use.
<Change of Address or Receiving as a Gift>
36
In the event that you have moved or have received your watch as a gift, and are not able to bring
your watch to the shop where it was purchased for serving, please consult Customer Support
Center.
Warranty and service
<Periodic Inspection (Charge Basis)>
•Water resistance
As the water resistance will be reduced over time, you should have your watch inspected and
its water resistance verified every 2-3 years (charge basis) to extend its life and ensure safety. To
maintain its water resistance, it is recommended to request us to replace the packings and other
parts of your watch.
• Disassembling for internal cleaning (repair)
You should have your watch disassembled and its internal components cleaned periodically
to extend its life. Lubrication oils are used to reduce wearing of moving parts such as gears.
However, over time the lubrication oils will degrade and wear will increase, eventually resulting
in malfunction. Please have your watch undergo internal cleaning every 3-5 years (although the
maintenance frequency depends on the usage circumstances).
<Other Inquiries>
If you have any questions regarding the way warranty, repairs or other matters, please inquire at
the shop where you purchased your watch or Customer Support Center.
