Radio-controlled Atomic Timekeeping
This watch receives a time calibration signal and updates its time setting accordingly.
• This watch is designed to pick up the time calibration signals transmitted in Germany
(Mainflingen), England (Anthorn), the United States (Fort Collins), China (Shangqiu),
and Japan (Fukushima, Fukuoka/Saga).
Current Time Setting
This watch adjusts its time setting automatically in accordance with a time calibration
signal. You also can perform a manual procedure to set the time and date, when
necessary.
• The first thing you should do after purchasing this watch is to specify your
Home City (the city where you normally will use the watch). For more
information, see “To specify your Home City” below.
• When using the watch outside the areas covered by the time signal transmitters, you
will have to adjust the current time setting manually as required. See “Timekeeping”
for more information about manual time settings.
• The U.S. time calibration signal can be picked up by the watch while in North
America. The term “North America” in this manual refers to the area that consists of
Canada, the continental United States, and Mexico.
• As of January 2009, 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 when receiving the China time calibration signal.

• Normally, your watch should show the correct time as soon as you select your Home
City code. If it does not, it should adjust automatically after the next auto receive
operation (in the middle of the night). You also can perform manual receive or you
can set the time manually.
• The watch will receive the time calibration signal automatically from the applicable
transmitter (in the middle of the night) and update its settings accordingly. For
information about the relationship between city codes and transmitters, see
“Important!” under “Time Calibration Signal Reception” and “Transmitters”.
• See the maps under “Approximate Reception Ranges” for information about the
reception ranges of the watch.
• You can disable time signal reception, if you want. See “To turn auto receive on and
off” for more information.
• Under factory default settings, auto receive is turned off for the following city codes:
MOW (Moscow), HNL (Honolulu), and ANC (Anchorage). For details about turning
on auto receive for these city codes, see “To turn auto receive on and off”.
Time Calibration Signal Reception
There are two different methods you can use to receive the time calibration signal:
auto receive and manual receive.
• Auto Receive
With auto receive, the watch receives the time calibration signal automatically up to
six times a day (five times a day for the Chinese calibration signal). When any auto
receive is successful, the remaining auto receive operations are not performed for that
day. For more information, see “About Auto Receive”.
• Manual Receive
Manual receive lets you start a time calibration receive operation with the press of a
button. For more information, see “To perform manual receive”.

Important!
• When getting ready to receive the time calibration signal, position the watch as
shown in the nearby illustration, with its 12 o’clock side pointing towards a window.
This watch is designed to receive a time calibration signal late at night. Because of
this, you should place the watch near a window as shown in the illustration when you
take it off at night. Make sure there are no metal objects nearby.
About Auto Receive
The watch receives the time calibration signal automatically up to six times a day
(five times a day for the Chinese calibration signal). When any auto receive is
successful, the remaining auto receive operations are not performed. The reception
schedule (calibration times) depends on your currently selected Home City, and
whether standard time or Daylight Saving Time is selected for your Home City.

Note
• When a calibration time is reached, the watch will receive the calibration signal only
if it is in either the Timekeeping Mode or World Time Mode. Reception is not
performed if a calibration time is reached while you are configuring settings.
• Auto receive of the calibration signal is designed to be performed early in the
morning, while you sleep (provided that the Timekeeping Mode time is set correctly).
Before going to bed for the night, remove the watch from your wrist, and put it in a
location where it can receive the signal easily.
• The watch receives the calibration signal for two to seven minutes everyday when
the time in the Timekeeping Mode reaches a calibration time. Do not perform any
button operation within seven minutes before or after the calibration times. Doing so
can interfere with correct calibration.
• Remember that reception of the calibration signal depends on the current time in the
Timekeeping Mode. The receive operation will be performed whenever the display
shows any one of the calibration times, regardless of whether or not the displayed
time actually is the correct time.
About the Signal Strength Indicator
The signal strength indicator shows the strength of the calibration signal being
received. For best reception, be sure to keep the watch in a location where signal
strength is strongest. The signal strength indicator is displayed while an auto or
manual receive operation is in progress.

Tide/Moon Data
In the Tide/Moon Data Mode, you can see the current tide and the current date’s
Moon phase for your Home City. You can specify a date and view tide and Moon data
for that date.
• See “Moon Phase Indicator” for information about the Moon phase indicator and
“Tide Graph” for information about the tide graph.
• All of the operations in this section are performed in the Tide/Moon Data Mode.
Note
• It takes about two seconds to calculate tide graph data. You will not be able to
display a setting screen while data calculation is in progress.
• Moon age is calculated to an accuracy of ±1 day.
• On some days, there are two high tides. With this watch, you can adjust the first high
tide time only. The second high tide time for that day is adjusted automatically based
on the first high tide time.
Reversing the Displayed Moon Phase
The left-right (east-west) appearance of the Moon depends on whether the Moon is
north of you (northerly view) or south of you (southerly view) as you view it.
You can use the procedure below to reverse the displayed Moon phase so it matches
the actual appearance of the Moon where you are located.
• To determine the viewing direction of the Moon, use a compass to take a direction
reading of the Moon at its meridian passage.
• For information about the Moon phase indicator, see “Moon Phase Indicator”.
To reverse the displayed Moon phase

Tide Data
The tide graph that appears first when you enter the Tide/Moon Data Mode shows the
data at 6:00 a.m. for your currently selected Home City on the current date, according
to the Timekeeping Mode. From there you can specify another date or time.
• If the tide data is not correct, check your Timekeeping Mode settings and correct
them if necessary.
• The tide graph is displayed in the Timekeeping Mode, the Tide/Moon Data Mode,
and the Diving Mode.
• If the watch is in the Diving Mode when there is a transition from one date to the
next, the tide graph contents will not change to reflect the data for the new date. If
you want to update the tide graph, exit and then re-enter the Diving Mode.
• If you feel that the information shown by the tide graph is different from actual tide
conditions, you need to adjust the high tide time. See “Adjusting the High Tide Time”
for more information.
Moon Data
The Moon phase and Moon age information that appears first when you enter the
Tide/Moon Data Mode shows the data at noon for your currently selected Home City
on the current date, according to the Timekeeping Mode. After that you can specify
another date to view data.
• If the Moon data is not correct, check your Timekeeping Mode settings and correct
them if necessary.
• The Moon phase is displayed in the Timekeeping Mode, the Tide/Moon Data Mode,
and the Diving Mode.
• If the watch is in the Diving Mode when there is a transition from one date to the

Power Supply
This watch is equipped with a solar cell and a rechargeable battery that is charged by
the electrical power produced by the solar cell. The illustration shown below shows
how you should position the watch for charging.
Example: Orient the watch so its face is
pointing at a light source.
• The illustration shows how to position a
watch with a resin band.
• Note that charging efficiency drops when
any part of the solar cell is blocked by
clothing, etc.
• You should try to keep the watch outside of
your sleeve as much as possible. Charging
is reduced significantly even if the face is
covered only partially.
Solar cell
Important!
• 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 rechargeable battery
power to run down. Make sure that the watch is exposed to bright light whenever
possible.
• This watch uses a rechargeable battery to store power produced by the solar cell, so
regular battery replacement is not required. However, after very long use, the
rechargeable battery may lose its ability to achieve a full charge. If you experience
problems getting the rechargeable battery to charge fully, contact your dealer or
CASIO distributor about having it replaced.

Daylight Saving Time (DST)
Daylight Saving Time (summer time) advances the time setting by one hour from
Standard Time. Remember that not all countries or even local areas use Daylight
Saving Time.
The time calibration signals transmitted from Mainflingen (Germany), Anthorn
(England), or Fort Collins (the United States) include both Standard Time and DST
data. When the Auto DST setting is turned on, the watch switches between Standard
Time and DST (summer time) automatically in accordance with the signals.
• Though the time calibration signals transmitted by the Fukushima and Fukuoka/
Saga, Japan transmitters include summer time data, summer time currently is not
implemented in Japan (as of 2008).
• The default DST setting is Auto DST (AvtA) whenever you select LIS, LON, MAD,
PAR, ROM, BER, STO, ATH, MOW, TYO, ANC, YVR, LAX, YEA, DEN, MEX, CHI,
NYC, YHZ, or YYT as your Home City code.
• If you experience problems receiving the time calibration signal in your area, it
probably is best to switch between Standard Time and Daylight Saving Time
(summer time) manually.
• The above exposure time values are all for reference only. Actual required exposure
times depend on lighting conditions.

Tidal Movements
Tides are the periodic rise and fall of the water of oceans, seas, bays, and other
bodies of water caused mainly by the gravitational interactions between the Earth,
Moon and Sun. Tides rise and fall about every six hours. The Tide Graph of this watch
indicates tidal movement based on the Moon’s transit over a meridian and the lunitidal
interval. The Tide Graph calculates and graphically represents current tide conditions
in your Home City or a port city in the vicinity of the Home City based on longitudes,
lunar day length, and lunitidal interval preset in watch memory, and on high tide times
specified by you.
Tide Graph
The Tide Graph graphically represents the current tide condition using one of three
patterns that represent spring tide, intermediate tide, and neap tide, as shown below.

Radio-controlled Atomic Timekeeping Precautions
• Strong electrostatic charge can result in the wrong time being set.
• The time calibration signal bounces off the ionosphere. Because of this, such factors
as changes in the reflectivity of the ionosphere, as well as movement of the
ionosphere to higher altitudes due to seasonal atmospheric changes or the time of
day may change the reception range of the signal and make reception temporarily
impossible.
• Even if the time calibration signal is received properly, certain conditions can cause
the time setting to be off by up to one second.
• The current time setting in accordance with the time calibration signal takes priority
over any time settings you make manually.
• The watch is designed to update the date and day of the week automatically for the
period January 1, 2000 to December 31, 2099. Setting of the date by the time
calibration signal cannot be performed starting from January 1, 2100.
• This watch can receive signals that differentiate between leap years and non-leap
years.
• Though this watch is designed to receive both time data (hour, minutes, seconds)
and date data (year, month, day), certain signal conditions can limit reception to time
data only.
• If you are in an area where proper time calibration signal reception is impossible, the
watch keeps the time with the precision noted in “Specifications”.
• If you have problems with proper time calibration signal reception or if the time
setting is wrong after signal reception, check your current city code, DST (summer
time), and auto receive settings.
• The Home City setting reverts to the initial default of TYO (Tokyo) whenever the
battery power level drops to Level 5 or when you have the rechargeable battery
replaced. If this happens, change the Home City to the setting you want.
Transmitters
The time calibration signal received by this watch depends on the currently selected
Home City code.
• When a U.S. time zone is selected, the watch receives the time calibration signal
transmitted from the United States (Fort Collins).
• When a Japanese time zone is selected, the watch receives the time calibration
signals transmitted from Japan (Fukushima and Fukuoka/Saga).
• When a European time zone is selected, the watch receives the time calibration
signals transmitted from Germany (Mainflingen) and England (Anthorn).
• When a China time zone is selected, the watch receives the time calibration signal
transmitted from China (Shangqiu City).
• When your Home City is LIS, LON, MAD, PAR, ROM, BER, STO, ATH, or MOW
(which can receive both the Anthorn and Mainflingen signals), the watch first tries to
pick up the signal it last successfully received. If that fails, it tries the other signal. For
the first receive after you select your Home City, the watch tries the nearest signal
first (Anthorn for LIS, LON, Mainflingen for MAD, PAR, ROM, BER, STO, ATH, and
MOW).

Power Supply: Solar cell and one rechargeable battery
Approximate battery operating time: 8 months (from full charge to Level 4) under
the following conditions:
• Watch not exposed to light
• Internal timekeeping
• Display on 18 hours per day, sleep state 6 hours per day
• 1 illumination operation(1.5 seconds) per day
• 10 seconds of alarm operation per day
• Approximately 4 minutes of signal reception per day
• 50 Diving Mode operations per year (60-minute dive time per measurement)
Frequent use of illumination runs down the battery. Particular care is required
when using the auto light switch.
Timekeeping
• Resetting the seconds to 00 while the current count is in the range of 30 to 59
causes the minutes to be increased by 1. In the range of 00 to 29, the seconds are
reset to 00 without changing the minutes.
• The year can be set in the range of 2000 to 2099.
• The watch’s built-in full automatic calendar makes allowances for different month
lengths and leap years. Once you set the date, there should be no reason to change
it except when battery power drops to Level 5.
• The current time for all city codes in the Timekeeping Mode and World Time Mode is
calculated in accordance with the Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) for each city,
based on your Home City time setting.
World Time
The seconds count of the World Time is synchronized with the seconds count of the
Timekeeping Mode.
Illumination Precautions
• The electro-luminescent panel that provides illumination loses power after very long
use.
• Illumination may be difficult to see when viewed under direct sunlight.
• The watch may emit an audible sound whenever the display is illuminated. This is
due to vibration of the EL panel used for illumination, and does not indicate
malfunction.
• Illumination turns off automatically whenever an alarm sounds.
• Frequent use of illumination runs down the battery.
Auto light switch precautions
• Avoid wearing the watch on the inside of your wrist while the auto light switch is
enabled. Doing so causes the auto light switch to operate when it is not needed,
which shortens battery life. If you want to wear the watch on the inside of your wrist,
disable the auto light switch feature.
More than 15 degrees
too high
• 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.
• Illumination turns off after a preset amount of time (1.5
or 3 seconds), even if you keep the watch pointed
towards your face.

• Based on data as of June 2009.
• The rules governing global times (UTC offset and GMT differential) and summer
time are determined by each individual country.
• 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 toward you 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.
• Under certain conditions, illumination may not turn on until about one second after
you turn the face of the watch towards you. This does not necessarily indicate
malfunction of the auto light switch.
• 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.
