Solar Power

12. Solar Power Function

This watch uses a secondary battery to store electrical energy.

When the watch is fully charged, it will maintain its accuracy for about 6 months.

<Ensuring best operation of the watch>

Always store the watch in a bright location for best results.

L

Placing the watch near a window where its face can receive sunlight or near another source of light when you are not wearing it will ensure that the watch is regularly charged, allowing it to maintain its accuracy.

32

L

Wearing clothes with long sleeves makes it difficult for the watch to get the necessary light, resulting in insufficient charging.

It is recommended that the watch be left in direct sunlight once a month to charge it.

[NOTE]

Do not charge on surfaces that can easily become hot, such as a car dashboard.

33

13. Characteristics of the Solar Powered

Watch

i

When the watch is insufficiently charged, the indication will be changed as follows:

[Normal indication]

The watch has been insufficiently charged because the watch face, which contains the solar cell, has not received sufficient light.

[Insufficient charge warning]

The insufficient charge warning (a 2second interval movement) continues for more than 2 days.

2-second interval movement

The second hand will begin a 2-second interval movement.

34

* 1. When the watch stopped due to insufficient charging

• It takes at least 30 minutes to recharge sufficiently to perform recovery automatic reception, even if the watch is being exposed to light.

After recovery, refer to “Guide to Charging Time” (p. 40) and sufficiently charge the watch.

* 2. If the watch failed to perform recovery automatic reception

• The time is incorrect even if the second hand moves at 1-second intervals, so after fully charging the watch, set the time manually or perform on demand reception.

[Recovery automatic reception]

The watch will stop due to an insufficient charging.

Sufficiently charge by exposing the watch face, which contains the solar cell to light.*1

When a radio signal has been successfully received*2

When the watch is recharged sufficiently, it will receive the radio signal automatically once.

35

Power Saving Function

If the watch face is not exposed to light for 7 days in succession, when the time reaches

12:00 midnight, the hands will stop and the watch will go into power saving mode.

• Even in power saving mode the watch will continue to keep time internally.

<Canceling the power saving function>

The power saving function will be automatically canceled when the watch face is exposed to light.

• When power saving function is canceled, the hands will return to their normal movement.

• If the watch is insufficiently charged, the second hand will begin the 2-second interval movement. Charge the watch adequately to restore normal movement of the hands.

[NOTE]

• The power saving function cannot be canceled with crown or button operations.

Cancel the power saving mode by placing the watch in light.

• After the power saving mode has been canceled, press the lower right button (A) once to check the reception status.

If it is not showing the correct time, carry out “On demand reception” (p. 18) or “Setting the Time Manually” (p. 26) before using.

All hands stop at the 12:00:00 position.

36 37

Insufficient Charge Warning Function

The second hand’s movement changes from 1-second intervals to 2-second intervals to show that the watch is insufficiently charged.

The watch will stop due to an insufficient charging about 2 days after starting the 2-second interval movement.

[NOTE]

During 2-second interval movement, automatic reception, on demand reception, time difference setting and manual time setting are unavailable.

2-second interval movement

L

If the charging insufficiency occurs during “Radio signal reception”, “Confirming reception status”, “Time difference correction” or “Checking/correcting the reference position”, the operation will stop automatically, the watch will return to the time before the operation, and 2-second interval movement will begin.

Regularly charge your watch so it does not become insufficiently charged.

38

Overcharging Prevention Function

Whenever the secondary battery becomes fully charged by exposing the solar cell to light, the overcharging prevention function is automatically activated to prevent the battery from being charged further.

No matter how much the watch is charged, it will not affect the secondary battery, timekeeping, functions or performance of the watch.

39

Guide to Charging Time

The charging time varies according to the model (including the color of the watch face).

The following data should only be used as a guideline.

[NOTE]

A fully charged battery will run the watch for about 6 months without further charging. The watch will maintain its accuracy for about 2 and a half years when running in the power saving mode.

Charge the watch every day, as it will take a long time to recharge it, as is indicated in the table, when it stops due to an insufficient charging.

Furthermore, it is recommended to charge your watch by exposing to direct sunlight for a long time once a month.

41

Handling Your Solar Powered Watch

CAUTION

Charging precautions

• Overheating while charging can cause the watch exterior to become discolored, the watch to deform or the movement to be damaged.

• Do not charge the watch in a high-temperature environment (about 60°C/140°F or more).

Example:

• Charging close to incandescent lighting, halogen lamps, or other lighting sources that easily become hot.

• Charging on surfaces that can easily become hot, such as a car dashboard.

• When charging with incandescent lighting, halogen lamps, or other lighting sources that easily become hot, place the watch at least 50 cm (20 in.) away from the source to avoid overheating.

42

WARNING

Handling the secondary battery

• Do not remove the secondary battery from the watch yourself, unless unavoidable.

If you must remove the battery, store it out of reach of children to avoid accidental ingestion.

• If the secondary battery is ingested, consult a doctor immediately.

WARNING

Changing the secondary battery

• Although the secondary battery should never need to be changed, in rare instances, the watch may be unable to be charged due to a problem with the battery.

If a problem occurs, have the watch repaired as soon as possible.

43

Troubleshooting

<Radio signal reception function>

If you believe your watch may be inoperative, consult the following chart:

Problem Check Remedy

The watch does not receive radio signals.

• Does the second hand align with the RX (receiving) position?

• Press and hold the lower right button (A) until the second hand has reached the RX position.

44

The watch can receive the radio signal, but it does not show the correct time.

The second hand does not align accurately with the OK/RX/NO positions.

• Is the reference position set correctly?

• Confirm the reference position.

(p. 12)

If the reference position is not correctly set, refer to

“Correcting the Reference

Position” and correct the reference position.

(p. 30)

Problem Check

Reception is successful, but the time is out by a factor of hours.

• Check the time difference setting.

Radio signal cannot be received (where reception is possible).

Remedy

• Set the correct time difference setting.

(p. 28)

• Are there objects nearby that could block radio signals or generate noise?

• Are you attempting to receive the radio signal in a location far from a window?

• Was the watch moved during reception while the second hand was aligned with the RX position?

• Avoiding objects that shield the radio waves and sources of radio noise, try to receive the signal with the 9:00 position of the watch pointing towards a window.

Find a location such as window that is conducive to radio signal reception and change the watch location, direction and angle.

(p. 16)

• Do not move the watch until the signal has been properly received (until normal hand movement returns).

45

<Eco-Drive>

Problem

• The second hand is moving at 2-second intervals.

• The watch has stopped.

• The watch does not work even after charging.

Check

• Did you charge the watch sufficiently in sunlight?

Remedy

• Charge the watch sufficiently, as indicated in “Guide to

Charging Time”.

(p. 40)

• If the watch does not work even after charging, contact the

Citizen Service Center.

Problem

• The hands moved forward quickly at the moment that the watch was removed from a desk or drawer.

Check Remedy

• This is because the power saving mode was canceled when the watch was exposed to light, and the hands moved forward quickly to the current time. It is ready to use.

• 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 damage the finish.

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.

• Do NOT subject the watch to a strong shock such as dropping it onto a hard floor.

52

• 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.
