The battery used in this watch is a special secondary battery, which is different from ordinary
batteries.
Unlike an ordinary silver oxide battery, the secondary battery does not require periodic
replacement.
The capacity or charging efficiency may gradually lower due to long-term use or operating
environment.
In addition, long-term use may shorten the charge duration due to wear, contamination, lubricant
deterioration of mechanical parts, etc. Request repair when the performance lowers.

b WARNING
■ Notes on replacing the secondary battery
• Do not remove the secondary battery from the watch.
Replacement of the secondary battery requires professional knowledge and skill.
Please ask the retailer from whom the watch was purchased for replacement of the
secondary battery.
• Installation of an ordinary silver oxide battery can generate heat that can cause
bursting and ignition.

* In general, when coming from a place that is bright to a place that is dark, it takes human eyes some time to adapt
to the darkness making it difficult to see objects initially. (Dark adaptation)
* Lumibrite is luminous paint that stores and emits light, which is harmless to human beings and the environment,
containing no toxic materials such as radioactive substances.
<Brightness levels>

Power Source
If your watch has Lumibrite
Lumibrite is a luminous paint that absorbs the light energy of sunlight and lighting apparatuses in a short
time and stores it to emit light in the dark. For example, if exposed to a light of more than 500 lux for
approximately 10 minutes, Lumibrite can emit light for 3 to 5 hours. Please note, however, that, as Lumibrite
emits the light it stores, the luminance level of the light decreases gradually over time. The duration of the
emitted light may also differ slightly depending on such factors as the brightness of the place where the
watch is exposed to light and the distance from the light source to the watch.

5
Keep the watch more than 1 cm away from magnetic products.
(JIS level-2 standard)
If the watch becomes magnetized and its accuracy deteriorates to an extent exceeding the specified rate
under normal use, the watch needs to be demagnetized. In this case, you will be charged for
demagnetization and accuracy readjustment even if it happens within the guarantee period.
The reason why a watch is affected by magnetism
The built-in motor is provided with a magnet, which may be influenced by a strong external magnetic field.

EN
41
TO PRESERVE THE QUALITY OF YOUR
WATCH
• When charging the watch, do not place the watch in close proximity to an intense light
source such as lighting equipment for photography, spotlights or incandescent lights,
as the watch may be excessively heated resulting in damage to its internal parts.
• When charging the watch by exposure to direct sunlight, avoid places that easily reach
high temperatures, such as a car dashboard.
• Always keep the watch temperature under 60°C.

Affected by nearby magnetism,
a watch may temporarily gain or lose time or stop operating.
Band
Examples of common magnetic products that may affect watches
The band touches the skin directly and becomes dirty with sweat or dust. Therefore, lack of care
may accelerate deterioration of the band or cause skin irritation or stain on the sleeve edge.
The watch requires a lot of attention for long usage.

Moisture, sweat or soil will cause rust even on a stainless steel band if they are left for a long time.
Lack of care may result in a rash or cause a yellowish or gold stain on the lower sleeve edge of shirts.
Wipe off moisture, sweat or soil with a soft cloth as soon as possible.
To clean the soil around the joint gaps of the band, wipe it out in water and then brush it off with a soft
toothbrush.
(Protect the watch body from water splashes by wrapping it up in plastic wrap etc.)
Clean it off with a soft cloth.
• Because some titan bands use pins made of stainless steel, which has outstanding strength, rust may
form in the stainless steel parts.
• If rust advances, pins may poke out or drop out, and the watch case may fall off the band, or the clasp
may not open.
• If a pin is poking out, personal injury may result. In such a case, refrain from using the watch and request
repair.

● Polyurethane band
• A polyurethane band is susceptible to discoloration from light, and may be deteriorated by solvent or
atmospheric humidity.
• Especially a translucent, white, or pale colored band easily adsorbs other colors, resulting in color smears
or discoloration.
• Wash out dirt in water and clean it off with a dry cloth.
(Protect the watch body from water splashes by wrapping it up in plastic wrap etc.)
• When the band becomes less flexible, have the band replaced with a new one. If you continue to use
the band as it is, the band may develop cracks or become brittle over time.

If any of the stopwatch hands do not return to the 0 minute 0 second position when the stopwatch
is reset, the preliminary hand position may be misaligned.
The preliminary position of the stopwatch 1/5-second and minute hands is 0 minute 0 second.
Adjusting the hands to the preliminary position will ensure that stopwatch measurements are
correct.
TROUBLESHOOTING
• Periodic inspection and adjustment by disassembly and cleaning (overhaul) is recommended
approximately once every 3 to 4 years in order to maintain optimal performance of the watch for a long
time. According to use conditions, the oil retaining condition of your watch mechanical parts may
deteriorate, abrasion of the parts may occur due to contamination of oil, which may ultimately lead the
watch itself to stop.
As the parts such as gasket may deteriorate, water-resistant performance may be impaired due to
intrusion of perspiration and moisture.
Please contact the retailer from whom the watch was purchased for inspection and adjustment by
disassembly and cleaning (overhaul). For replacement of parts, please specify “SEIKO GENUINE
PARTS.” When asking for inspection and adjustment by disassembly and cleaning (overhaul), make
sure that the gasket and push pin are also replaced with new ones.
• When your watch is inspected and adjusted by disassembly and cleaning (overhauled), the movement
