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 automatically picks up the time calibration signal four
times a day at midnight, 2:00 a.m., 3:00 a.m., and 4:00 a.m. For more information, see
“About Auto Receive”.
• Manual Receive
Manual receive lets you start a time calibration signal reception 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 facing towards a window.
Make sure there are no metal objects nearby.

• Signal reception is normally better at night than during the day.
• Time calibration signal reception takes from two to seven minutes, but in some
cases it can take as long as 14 minutes. Take care that you do not perform any
button operations or move the watch during this time.
• When within range of the applicable transmitter, this watch can receive either the
Germany (Mainflingen) or England (Rugby) time calibration signals. See
“Transmitters” for more information.

• Under good reception conditions, signal reception is possible within a radius of
about 1,500 kilometers from a transmitter.
• At distances further than about 500 kilometers from a transmitter, signal reception
may not be possible during certain times of year or times of day. Radio interference
may also cause problems with reception.
• See the information under “Signal Reception Troubleshooting” if you experience
problems with time calibration signal reception.
About Auto Receive
When auto receive is turned on, the watch automatically starts to receive the time
calibration signal when the time in the Timekeeping Mode reaches 0:00 a.m., 2:00
a.m., 3:00 a.m., and 4:00 a.m. each day (calibration times). The watch will also
perform an additional auto receive at 5:00 a.m. if none of the regularly scheduled auto
receive operations are successful.
Note
• Auto receive is turned on whenever LON, PAR, or BER is selected as the Home
City code. For information about turning off auto receive, see “To select the
transmitter mode”.
• Auto receive is performed only if the watch is in the Timekeeping Mode or World
Time Mode when one of the calibration times is reached. It is not performed if a
calibration time is reached while an alarm is sounding, or while you are configuring
settings (while settings are flashing on the display).
• Auto receipt 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 easily receive the signal.
• When auto receive is turned on, the watch receives the calibration signal for two to
seven minutes everyday when the time in the Timekeeping Mode reaches each of
the calibration times. Do not perform any button operation within seven minutes
before or after any one of the calibration times. Doing so can interfere with correct
calibration.
• Remember that reception of the calibration signal depends on the current time
shown on the digital display. The receive operation will be performed whenever the
display shows any one of the calibration times, regardless of whether or not the
displayed time is actually the correct time.
• When two, three, or four receptions are successful, the watch uses the data of the
last reception for calibration. When only one reception is successful, the watch uses
the data of the successful reception.
About the Receiving Indicator
The receiving 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.
Weak
Strong
Receiving indicator
• Even in an area where signal strength is strong, it takes about 10 seconds for signal
reception to stabilize enough for the receiving indicator to indicate signal strength.
• Use the receiving indicator as a guide for checking signal strength and for finding the
best location for the watch during signal reception.
To perform manual receive
1. Place the watch on a stable surface so its top (12
o’clock side) is facing towards a window.
2. While any screen other than the last signal screen is on
the display in the Timekeeping Mode, hold down D for
about two seconds until the watch beeps.
3. Release D and the receiving indicator will appear on
the display to indicate that signal reception has started.
• Time calibration signal reception takes from two to seven

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 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 signal it receives.
• The auto DST setting can be turned on only while LON, PAR, BER, or ATH is
selected as the Home City code.
• If you experience problems receiving the time calibration signal in your area, it is
probably best to switch between Standard Time and Daylight Saving Time (summer
time) manually.
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

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 normally exposed to bright light
whenever possible.
• This watch uses a special 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 special rechargeable battery to fully charge, contact your
dealer or CASIO distributor about having it replaced.
• Never try to remove or replace the watch's special battery yourself. Use of the wrong
type of battery can damage the watch.
• The current time and all other settings return to their initial factory defaults whenever
battery power drops to Level 4 and when you have the battery replaced.
• Turn on the watch’s Power Saving function and keep it in an area normally exposed
to bright light when storing it for long periods. This helps to keep the rechargeable
battery from going dead.

3. When the setting you want to change is flashing, use D to change it as described
below.
• The following steps explain how to configure timekeeping settings only.
Recover indicator
If you use illumination or alarms a number of times during
a short period, the recover indicator (R) appears on the
display and the following operations become disabled until
battery power recovers.
Illumination; Beeper tone; Coordination between digital
and analog timekeeping; Time calibration signal reception
After some time, battery power will recover and the
recover indicator will disappear, indicating that the above
functions are enabled again.
• If the battery drops to Level 3 while the recover indicator is on the display, the
Battery Level Screen will indicate
. Charge the battery as soon as possible.
• If the recover indicator appears frequently, it probably means that remaining battery
power is low. Leave the watch in bright light to allow it to charge.
Charging Precautions
Certain charging conditions can cause the watch to become very hot. Avoid leaving
the watch in the areas described below whenever charging its rechargeable battery.
Also note that allowing the watch to become very hot can cause its liquid crystal
display to black out. The appearance of the LCD should become normal again when
the watch returns to a lower temperature.
Warning!
Leaving the watch in bright light to charge its rechargeable battery can cause it
to become quite hot. Take care when handling the watch to avoid burn injury.
The watch can become particularly hot when exposed to the following
conditions for long periods.
• On the dashboard of a car parked in direct sunlight
• Too close to an incandescent lamp
• Under direct sunlight

• The above exposure time values are all for reference only. Actual required exposure
times depend on lighting conditions.
Radio-controlled Timekeeping Precautions
• Strong electrostatic charge can result in the wrong time being set.
• Even when the watch is within the reception range of the transmitter, signal
reception will be impossible if the signal is blocked by mountains or other geological
formations between the watch and signal source.
• Signal reception is affected by weather, atmospheric conditions, and seasonal
changes.
• 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 automatically update the date and day of the week 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.
• Normally, the signal reception date shown by the last signal screen is the date data
included in the received time calibration signal. When only time data is received,
however, the last signal screen shows the date as kept in the Timekeeping Mode at
the time of signal reception.
• If you are in an area where proper time calibration signal reception is impossible, the
watch keeps time within ±15 seconds a month at normal temperature.
• 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) settings, and transmitter mode setting. The following are the initial factory
defaults for these settings.

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 day of the week is calculated
automatically in accordance with the date.
• 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 or when battery power drops to
Level 4.
• The current time for all city codes in the Timekeeping Mode and World Time Mode is
calculated in accordance with the Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) differential for each
city, based on your Home City time setting.
• GMT differential is calculated by this watch based on Universal Time Coordinated
(UTC*) data.
UTC 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. The reference point for UTC is Greenwich, England.
12-hour/24-hour Timekeeping Formats
The 12-hour/24-hour timekeeping format you select in the Timekeeping Mode is
also applied in all other modes.
• With the 12-hour format, the P (PM) indicator appears on the display for times in the
range of noon to 11:59 p.m. and no indicator appears for times in the range of
midnight to 11:59 a.m.
• With the 24-hour format, times are displayed in the range of 0:00 to 23:59, without
any indicator.
Illumination Precautions
• The illumination provided by the light may be hard to see when viewed under direct
sunlight.
• Illumination automatically turns off whenever an alarm sounds.
• Frequent use of illumination shortens the battery operating time.
Auto light switch precautions
• Wearing the watch on the inside of your wrist, movement of your arm, or vibration of
your arm can cause frequent activation of the auto light switch and illumination of the
face of the watch. To avoid running down the battery, turn off the auto light switch
whenever engaging in activities that might cause frequent illumination of the face.
• Note that wearing the watch under your sleeve while the auto light switch is turned
on can cause frequent illumination of the face and can run down the battery.
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 the preset illumination
duration (see “To specify the illumination duration”), 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 towards your face 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.
