Moon Phases and Moon Age
The Moon goes through a regular 29.53-day cycle. During each cycle, the Moon
appears to wax and wane as the relative positioning of the Earth, Moon, and Sun
changes. The greater the angular distance between the Moon and the Sun,* the more
we see illuminated.
* The angle to the Moon in relation to the direction at which the Sun is visible from the
Earth.
This watch performs a rough calculation of the current Moon age starting from day 0
of the moon age cycle. Since this watch performs calculations using integer values
only (no fractions), the margin for error of the displayed Moon age is ± 1 day.
• The Moon phase indicator shows the Moon as viewed at noon from a position in the
Northern Hemisphere looking south. Note that at times the image shown by the
Moon phase indicator may differ from that of the actual Moon in your area.
• The left-right orientation of the Moon phase is reversed when viewing from the
Southern Hemisphere or from a point near the equator.

Tide Graph
The Tide Graph has six graphic segments, each of which indicates a different tide
level. The current tide level is indicated by the displayed graphic segment.
High Tide

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 lunitidal interval differs according to your current location, so you must
specify a lunitidal interval in order to obtain the correct tide graph readings.
The tide graph displayed by this watch is based on the current Moon age.
Remember that the margin for error of the Moon age displayed by this watch is ± 1
day. The greater the error in a particular Moon age, the greater the error in the
resulting tide graph.
Lunitidal Interval
Theoretically, high tide is at the Moon’s transit over the meridian and low tide is about
six hours later. Actual high tide occurs somewhat later, due to factors such as
viscosity, friction, and underwater topography. Both the time differential between the
Moon’s transit over the meridian until high tide and the time differential between the
Moon’s transit over the meridian until low tide are known as the “lunitidal interval”.
When setting the lunitidal interval for this watch, use the time differential between the
Moon’s transit over the meridian until high tide.

Flash Alert
Button Operation Tone
When Flash Alert is turned on, the illumination flashes for the alarms, the Hourly Time
Signal, the countdown alarm, and stopwatch auto start.
The button operation tone sounds any time you press one of the watch’s buttons. You
can turn the button operation tone on or off as desired.
• Even if you turn off the button operation tone, the alarms, the Hourly Time Signal,
the countdown alarm, and stopwatch auto start all operate normally.
To turn Flash Alert on and off
1. In the Timekeeping Mode, hold down A until the
seconds start to flash, which indicates the setting
screen.
2. Press C eight times to display the Flash Alert setting
screen.
3. Press D to toggle Flash Alert on (
displayed) and
off (
displayed).
4. Press A twice to exit the setting screen.
• The Flash Alert setting you select with the above
procedure is applied in all modes.
• When Flash Alert is on,
appears on the
timekeeping screen for about one second whenever you
enter the Stopwatch, Countdown Timer, or Alarm Mode.
E-48
To turn the button operation tone on and off
In any mode (except when a setting screen is on the
MUTE indicator
display), hold down C to toggle the button operation tone
on (MUTE not displayed) and off (MUTE displayed).
• Holding down C to turn the button operation tone on or
off also causes the watch’s current mode to change.
• The MUTE indicator is displayed in all modes when the
button operation tone is turned off.

Operation Guide 3295
Auto Return Features
• If you leave the watch in the Alarm Mode or Tide/Moon Data Mode for two or three
minutes without performing any operation, it changes to the Timekeeping Mode
automatically.
• If you leave a screen with flashing digits on the display for two or three minutes
without performing any operation, the watch exits the setting screen automatically.
Scrolling
The B and D buttons are used in various modes and setting screens to scroll
through data on the display. In most cases, holding down these buttons during a scroll
operation scrolls at high speed.
Initial Screens
When you enter the World Time or Alarm Mode, the data you were viewing when you
last exited the mode appears first.
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 after you have the watch’s battery replaced.
World Time
All World Time Mode times are calculated from the current time in the Timekeeping
Mode using UTC offset values.
• The seconds count of the World Time is synchronized with the seconds count of the
Timekeeping Mode.
• The UTC offset is a value that indicates the time difference between a reference
point in Greenwich, England and the time zone where a city is located.
E-50
E-51
• The letters UTC is the abbreviation for Coordinated Universal Time, which is the
world-wide scientific standard of timekeeping. It is based upon carefully maintained
atomic (cesium) clocks that keep time accurately to within microseconds. Leap
seconds are added or subtracted as necessary to keep UTC in sync with the Earth’s
rotation.
Auto light switch precautions
• Avoid wearing the watch on the inside of your wrist. 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, turn off the auto light switch feature.
More than 15 degrees
too high
Illumination Precautions
• Illumination may be hard to see when viewed under direct sunlight.
• Illumination turns off automatically whenever an alarm sounds.
• Frequent use of illumination runs down the battery.
• 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 in about 1.5 seconds or 3 seconds,
even if you keep the watch pointed towards your face.
• 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.
E-52
E-53
• 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.
