It cannot properly operate unless the remaining energy is sufficient. Place or store the watch in a location receiving light etc., to sufficiently charge electricity. English CAUTION • When the watch is stopped or the second hand starts moving at 2-second intervals, charge the watch by exposing it to light. • The time required for charging the watch varies depending on the calibres. Check the calibre of your watch engraved on the back cover. • It is recommended that the watch be charged for as long as the charging time "B" to assure the stable movement of the watch. 21 English NOTE ON POWER SUPPLY ● When the energy stored in the rechargeable battery is reduced to an extremely low level, the second hand starts moving at 2-second intervals instead of the normal 1-second intervals. The watch remains accurate even while the second hand is moving at 2-second intervals. ● The battery used in this watch is a rechargeable battery, which is different from ordinary silver oxide batteries. Unlike other disposable batteries such as dry-cell batteries or button cells, this rechargeable battery can be used over and over again by repeating the cycles of discharging and recharging. ● The capacit y or recharging ef ficiency of the rechargeable bat ter y may gradually deteriorate for various reasons such as long-term use or usage conditions. Worn or contaminated mechanical parts or degraded oils may also shorten recharging cycles. If the efficiency of the rechargeable battery decreases, it will be necessary to have the watch repaired. ● When this occurs, recharge the watch as soon as possible by exposing it to light. Otherwise, the watch may stop operating in a few days. (For recharging the watch, see “HOW TO CHARGE AND START THE WATCH”) • While the second hand is moving at 2-second intervals, the stopwatch cannot be activated. This is not a malfunction. • If the second hand starts to move at 2-second intervals while the stopwatch is operating, the stopwatch will be automatically stopped and the stopwatch hands will return to the “0” position. • While the second hand is moving at 2-second intervals, the alarm time cannot be set. • If the time reaches the alarm time while the second hand is moving at 2-second intervals, the alarm will not sound, and the alarm will be automatically cancelled. v TO PREVENT THE ENERGY DEPLETION • • 22 When wearing the watch, make sure that the watch is not covered by clothing. When the watch is not in use, leave it in a bright place as long as possible. English ENERGY DEPLETION FOREWARNING FUNCTION CAUTION ● Do not remove the rechargeable battery yourself. Replacement of the rechargeable battery requires professional knowledge and skill. Please ask a watch retailer for replacement of the rechargeable battery. ● Installation of an ordinary silver oxide battery can generate heat that can cause bursting and ignition. 23 English ROTATING BEZEL (for models with rotating bezel) When an abnormal display appears, follow the procedures below to reset the builtin IC.

Note: For some models, the rotating bezel rotates only counterclockwise. 24 25 English (for models with tachymeter scale on the dial) To measure the hourly average speed of a vehicle 1 Use the stopwatch to determine how many seconds it takes to go 1 km or 1 mile. 1 Ex. 1 STOPWATCH 1/5second hand: 40 seconds 2 Tachymeter scale indicated by the STOPWATCH 1/5-second hand gives the average speed per hour. To measure the hourly rate of operation Tachymeter scale: "90" “90” (tachymeter scale figure) x 1 (km or mile) = 90 km/h or mph l Tachymeter scale can be used only when the time required is less than 60 seconds. Ex. 2: If the measuring distance is extended to 2 km or miles or shortened to 0.5 km or miles and the STOPWATCH 1/5-second hand indicates “90” on tachymeter scale: 2 Use the stopwatch to measure the time required to complete 1 job. English TACHYMETER Ex. 1 STOPWATCH 1/5second hand: 20 seconds Tachymeter scale indicated by the STOPWATCH 1/5-second hand gives the average number of jobs accomplished per hour. Tachymeter scale: "180" “180” (tachymeter scale figure) x 1 job = 180 jobs/hour Ex. 2: If 15 jobs are completed in 20 seconds: "180" (tachymeter scale figure) x 15 jobs = 2700 jobs/hour "90" (tachymeter scale figure) x 2 (km or mile) = 180 km/h or mph "90" (tachymeter scale figure) x 0.5 (km or mile) = 45 km/h or mph 26 27 English (for models with telemeter scale on the dial) HOW TO USE THE TELEMETER Before beginning, check that the stopwatch has been reset. l The telemeter can provide a rough indication of the distance to the source of light and sound. l The telemeter indicates the distance from your location to an object that emits both light and sound. For example, it can indicate the distance to the place where lightning struck by measuring the time elapsed after you see a flash of lightning until you hear the sound. l A flash of lightning reaches you almost immediately while the sound travels to you at a speed of 0.33 km/second. The distance to the source of the light and sound can be calculated on the basis of this difference. l The telemeter scale is graduated so that the sound travels at a speed of 1 km in 3 seconds.* START (Flash of light) English TELEMETER 1 Press Button A to start the stopwatch as soon as you see light. STOP 2 When you hear the sound, (Crash of thunder) press Button A to stop the stopwatch. *Under the condition of temperature of 20° C(68° F) 3 Read the telemeter scale that the STOPWATCH 1/5second hand points to. CAUTION The telemeter provides only a rough indication of the distance to the place where lightning struck, and therefore, the indication cannot be used as the guideline to avoid the danger of lightning. It should also be noted that the speed of the sound differs depending on the temperature of the atmosphere where it travels. 28 Approx. 3 km • Please note that the STOPWATCH 1/5-second hand moves in 1/5-second increments and does not always point exactly to the graduations of the telemeter scale. The telemeter scale can be used only when the measured time is less than 60 seconds. 29 English Troubles Possible causes Solutions The watch stops operating. The energy has been depleted. The small second hand moves at two-second intervals. The energy is running short. If you often encounter this problem even though you wear the watch everyday, the watch may not be exposed to sufficient light while you wear it. For example, the watch may be covered by the cuff of clothing. Recharge the watch sufficiently by exposing it to light. The stopped watch has been charged for longer than the time required for full charge, but the second hand does not resume one-second interval movement. The watch temporarily gains or loses time. 30 The light the watch has been exposed to was too weak. The time required for charging will vary depending on the intensity of light. Recharge the watch referring to "GUIDELINE OF CHARGING TIME/ACCURACY." The built-in IC has fallen into an unstable condition. Reset the watch by following the instructions in “IMPROPER FUNCTION." The watch has been left or worn in extremely high or low temperatures. Return the watch to a normal temperature so that it works accurately as usual, and then reset the time. The watch has been adjusted so that it works accurately when it is worn on your wrist under a normal temperature range between 5 ºC and 35 ºC. The watch has been left close to an object with a strong magnetic field. Correct this condition by moving and keeping the watch away from the magnetic source. If this action does not correct the condition, contact the retailer from whom the watch was purchased. You have dropped the watch, hit it against a hard surface or worn it while playing active sports. The watch was exposed to strong vibrations. Reset the time. If the watch does not return to its normal accuracy after resetting the time, contact the retailer from whom the watch was purchased. English troubLeshooting 31 English Possible causes Solutions The STOPWATCH hands do not return to the "0" position when the stopwatch is reset. Affected by external sources, or because the internal IC had been reset, the stopwatch hand positions have moved out of correct alignments. Adjust the STOPWATCH hands to the "0" position by following the instructions in “SETTING THE TIME AND ADJUSTING STOPWATCH HAND POSITION” Although the alarm time has not been set, the time on the alarm sub dial and the time on the main dial are not the same. The watch has been left close to an object with a strong magnetic field. The watch has been exposed to strong vibrations. Reset the time for main dial and alarm sub dial. The inner surface of the glass is clouded. Moisture has entered the watch because the gasket has deteriorated. Contact the retailer from whom the watch was purchased. The date changes during the day. The time is set 12 hours ahead of or behind the correct time.
