C. FUNCTIONS OF SOLAR POWERED WATCH
Insufficient Charge Warning Function
If the charge becomes insufficient, a warning function will operate and the
display changes, as below.
The second hand changes to a two second
interval movement to indicate insufficient recharging.
Even in such a case, the watch keeps correct time, but
about 4 days after the two second interval movement
begins, the watch will stop.
After exposing the watch to light, recharging takes place
and the watch returns to one second interval movement.

The watch will stop if it is completely discharged.
It will begin to operate soon after it is exposed to light.
(However, the time to start may vary according to the brightness of the light.)
If insufficiently charged and time is set
When the watch is exposed to light, the Quick Start Function will begin operating
and the second hand will start moving. The correct time can be set once the watch
is fully charged.

D. CARE AND HANDLING DURING CHARGING
Notes on Use
To maintain optimal performance, be sure to expose your watch to light
regularly.
Please note that if you wear long sleeves, your watch may be hidden from light
and may result in insufficient charging. As such, additional exposure to light may
be necessary.
• When you take your watch off, be sure to place it in as bright an area as
possible.
Notes on recharging
E. ABOUT THE ENERGY STRAGE CELL
Unlike ordinary watches, the special energy storage cell used in your watch
does not need regular replacement. This is a clean energy cell that will last
the life of the watch.
CAUTION:
The energy cell should last the life of the watch. Never allow anyone other than
an Authorized Service Center to replace this cell. The movement is designed to
operate with only the original energy storage cell. If an alternate cell is installed,
such as a conventional battery, the battery may become overcharged resulting
in damage to the movement and/or bursting of the cell, which could cause injury
to the user.
• Avoid recharging your watch in areas of high temperatures (over about 60 °C /
140 °F), otherwise the sensitive components of the watch may become damaged.
(e.g.) Incandescent lights generate heat sufficient to damage your watch. Be
sure to keep the watch at least 50cm (20inches) away from the bulb so
no damage occurs. We do not recommend the use of Halogen bulbs for
recharging.
8
Never place your watch on the dashboard or rear deck of a vehicle as the
heat generated in these areas can damage your watch.

G. IN THESE CASES
[If the watch warns that the energy is running short]
The second hand starts moving at two second intervals
in order to warn that the watch will stop functioning after
about 1 week. (Insufficient Charge Warning Function)
In such a case, expose your watch to light for a while to
cancel the warning. (The second hand returns to moving
at one second intervals when the energy is recharged.)
If the watch is left short of energy, it will stop functioning
after 4 days or so.
Two second
interval movement
12
[If the watch warns you to set the time.]
When the watch that has stopped is exposed to light, the
second hand starts hitch movement. (Quick Start
Function)
The time elapsed before the second hand starts moving
depends on the illuminance of the light.
Even so, the second hand continues the hitch
movement to tell you that the watch indicates an
incorrect time because it had stopped.
Hitch movement
In such a case, set the hands to the correct time.
* If the watch is insufficiently exposed to light, the
second hand will soon switch to moving at two second
intervals in order to warn that the energy is running
short.

• Water-resistance for daily use (to 3 atmospheres): This type of watch is
water-resistant to minor exposure to water. For example, you may wear the
watch while washing your face; however, it is not designed for use
underwater.
• Upgraded water-resistance for daily use (to 5 atmospheres): This type of
watch is water-resistant to moderate exposure to water. You may wear the
watch while swimming; however, it is not designed for use while skin diving.
• Upgraded water-resistance for daily use (to 10/20 atmospheres): This type of
watch may be used for skin diving; however, it is not designed for scuba or
saturated diving using helium gas.
CAUTION
• Be sure to use the watch with the crown pressed in (normal position). If your
watch has a screw-type crown, be sure to tighten the crown completely.
• Do NOT operate the crown with wet fingers or when the watch is wet. Water
may enter the watch and compromise water-resistance.
• If the watch is used in seawater, rinse with fresh water afterward and wipe
with a dry cloth.
• If moisture has entered the watch, or if the inside of the crystal is fogged up
and does not become clear within a day, immediately take the watch to your
dealer or Citizen Service Center for repair. Leaving the watch in such a state
will allow corrosion to form inside.
16
• If seawater enters the watch, place the watch in a box or plastic bag and
immediately take it in for repair. Otherwise, pressure inside the watch will
increase, and parts (crystal, crown, buttons, etc.) may come off.
CAUTION: Keep your watch clean.
• Leaving dust and dirt deposited between the case and crown may result in
difficulty in pulling the crown out. Rotate the crown while in its normal
position, from time to time, to loosen dust and dirt and then brush it off.
• Dust and dirt tend to be deposited in gaps in the back of the case or band.
Deposited dust and dirt may cause corrosion and soil your clothing. Clean the
watch occasionally.
Cleaning the Watch
• Use a soft cloth to wipe off dirt, perspiration and water from the case and
crystal.
• Use a soft, dry cloth to wipe off perspiration and dirt from the leather band.
• To clean a metal, plastic, or rubber watchband, wash away dirt with mild soap
and water. Use a soft brush to remove dust and dirt jammed in the gaps in
the metal band. If your watch is not water-resistant, take it to your dealer.
NOTE: Avoid using solvents (thinner, benzine, etc.), as they may mar the finish.
17
#01_CTZ-B8036_英語 2008.12.3 18:50 ページ18
CAUTION: Operating environment
• Use the watch within the operating-temperature range specified in the
instruction manual.
Using the watch where temperatures are outside the specified range, may
result in deterioration of functions or even stoppage of the watch.
• Do NOT use the watch in places where it is exposed to high temperature,
such as in a sauna.
Doing so may result in a skin burn.
• Do NOT leave the watch in a place where it is exposed to high temperature,
such as the glove compartment or dash-board of a car.
Doing so may result in deterioration of the watch, such as deformation of
plastic parts.
• Do NOT place the watch close to a magnet.
Timekeeping will become inaccurate if you place the watch close to magnetic
health equipment such as a magnetic necklace or a magnetic latch of a
refrigerator door or handbag clasp or the earphone of a mobile phone. If this
has occurred, move the watch away from the magnet and reset the time.
• Do NOT place the watch close to household appliances that generate static
electricity.
Timekeeping may become inaccurate if the watch is exposed to strong static
electricity, such as is emitted from a TV screen.
18
• Do NOT subject the watch to a strong shock such as dropping it onto a hard
floor.
• Avoid using the watch in an environment where it may be exposed to
chemicals or corrosive gases.
If solvents, such as thinner and benzine, or substances containing such
solvents come in contact with the watch, discoloration, melting, cracking, etc.
may result. If the watch comes in contact with mercury used in thermometers,
the case, band or other parts may become discolored.
Periodical inspections
Your watch needs inspection once in every two or three years for safety and
long use.
To keep your watch water-resistant, the packing needs to be replaced regularly.
Other parts need to be inspected and replaced if necessary.
Ask for Citizen geuine parts upon replacement.
