Solar-powered watch handling precautions

• Please note that if you wear long sleeves, the watch may stop as a result of being covered by your sleeve and blocked from the light.

• When you take off the watch, try to place it in as bright a location as possible. This will ensure that it will continue to run properly.

CAUTION Recharging Precautions

• Do not charge the watch at a high temperature (about 60°C or higher) as doing so may cause the movement to malfunction.

Examples:

• Charging the watch too close to a light source which generates a large amount of heat such as an incandescent lamp or halogen lamp.

* When charging under an incandescent lamp, be sure to leave 50 cm or more between the lamp and the watch to avoid exposing the watch to excessive heat.

• Charging the watch in a location where the temperature may become extremely high such as on the dashboard of a vehicle.

50

Solar-powered watch handling precautions

• Because the watch uses a rechargeable cell, you do not need periodical cell replacement. However, power consumption may increase after using for an extended period of time due to deterioration, and the power may run out earlier than expected. To avoid this, we recommend that you have your watch inspected (Charge basis) periodically.

WARNING Handling of Rechargeable Cell

• The rechargeable cell should never be removed from the watch. If for any reason it becomes necessary to remove the rechargeable cell from the watch, keep out of the reach of children to prevent accidental swallowing. If the rechargeable cell is accidentally swallowed, consult a doctor immediately.

• Do not dispose of the rechargeable cell with ordinary garbage. Please follow the instructions of your municipality regarding collection of batteries to prevent the risk of fire or environmental contamination.

WARNING Use Only the Specified Battery

• Never use a battery other than the rechargeable cell specified for use in this watch. Although the watch structure is designed so that it will not operate when another type of battery is installed, if a silver battery or other type of battery is installed in the watch and the watch is recharged, there is the risk of overcharging which may cause the battery to rupture. This can cause damage to the watch and injury to the wearer. When replacing the rechargeable cell, always make sure to use the designated rechargeable cell.

51

Water resistance

WARNING Water Resistance

• Non-water resistant watches cannot be used underwater or in environments in contact with water.

• Water-resistance for daily use (to 3 atmospheres) means that the watch may be worn while washing your face or in the rain, but is not to be immersed in water.

• Upgraded water-resistance for daily use (to 5 atmospheres) means that the watch may be worn while swimming, but is not to worn while skin diving.

• Upgraded water-resistance for daily use (to 10/20 atmospheres) means that the watch may be worn while skin diving, but not while scuba or saturated diving using helium gas.

Precautionary items and usage limitations

CAUTION To Avoid Injury

• Be particularly careful when wearing your watch while holding a small child, to avoid injury.

• Be particularly careful when engaged in strenuous exercise or work, to avoid injury to yourself and others.

• Do NOT wear your watch while in a sauna or other location where your watch may become excessively hot, since there is the risk of burns.

• Be careful when putting on and taking off your watch, since there is a risk of damaging your fingernails, depending on the manner in which the band is fastened.

54

Precautionary items and usage limitations CAUTION Precautions

• Always use the watch with the crown pushed in (normal position). If the crown is of the screw lock-type, make sure it is securely locked.

• Do NOT operate the crown when the watch is wet. Water may penetrate into the watch, causing deterioration of water resistance.

• If water enters the watch or the watch fogs up and does not clear up even after a long time, consult your dealer or Customer Support Center for inspection and/or repair.

• If a watch of upgraded water resistance for daily use is immersed in sea water or subjected to excessive perspiration, thoroughly rinse with fresh water and wipe completely dry with a soft cloth.

• If seawater enters the watch, place the watch in a box or plastic bag and immediately take it in for repair. Otherwise, pressure inside the watch will increase, and parts (crystal, crown, push button, etc.) may come off.

55

Precautionary items and usage limitations CAUTION When Wearing Your Watch

• The durability of a leather band may be affected when wet (fading, peeling of adhesive), owing to the properties of the material. Moreover, wet leather may cause a rash.

• It is recommended to take off the watch if it gets wet, even if the watch itself is water-resistant.

• Do Not wear the band too tightly. Try to leave enough space between the band and your skin to allow adequate ventilation.

• The rubber (urethane) band may be stained by dyes or soil present in or on clothing or other accessories. Since these stains may not be removable, caution is required when wearing your watch with items that tend to easily transfer color (articles of clothing, purses, etc.). In addition, the band may be deteriorated by solvents or moisture in the air. Replace with a new one when it has lost elasticity or become cracked.

• The watch may stop or the function of the watch may be impaired in extremely high or low temperature. Do not use the watch in places where the temperature is outside the operating temperature range as stated in the specifications.

• The integrated circuits (IC) used in quartz watches are sensitive to static electricity. Please note that the watch may not indicate the correct time if exposed to intense static electricity.

56

Precautionary items and usage limitations

• Analog quartz watches are powered by a step motor that uses a magnet. Subjecting the watch to strong magnetism from the outside can cause the motor to operate improperly and prevent the watch from indicating the correct time. Do not allow the watch to come into close proximity to magnetic health devices (magnetic necklaces, magnetic elastic bands, etc.) or the magnets used in the latches of refrigerator doors, clasps used in handbags, the speaker of a cell phone, electromagnetic cooking devices and so on.

• Avoid dropping the watch or subjecting it to other strong impact. It may cause malfunctions and/or performance deterioration as well as damage to the case and bracelet.

• If paint thinner, benzene or other solvents or products containing these solvents (including gasoline, nail polish remover, cresol, bathroom cleaners and adhesives, water repellent, etc.) are allowed to come into contact with the watch, they may discolor, dissolve or crack the materials. Be careful when handling these chemicals. Contact with mercury such as that used in thermometers may also cause discoloration of the band and case.

57

Precautionary items and usage limitations CAUTION Always Keep Your Watch Clean

• Rotate the crown while it is pressed in fully and press the buttons periodically so they do not become stuck due to accumulations of foreign matter.

• The case and band of the watch come into direct contact with the skin in the same manner as undergarments. Corrosion of the metal or unnoticed soiling such as that caused by perspiration and dirt can soil sleeves and other portions of clothing. Keep your watch clean at all times.

• The case and band of the watch come into direct contact with the skin. Rust, dirt or perspiration present on the watch’s body or band may cause itching or a rash on your skin. Such problems may also occur if you have an allergy to certain metals or leather. If you think there is something wrong, discontinue wearing the watch immediately and consult your physician.

• Leather bands may become discolored by perspiration or dirt. Always keep your leather band clean by wiping with a dry cloth.

58

Precautionary items and usage limitations CAUTION Caring for Your Watch

• Wipe any dirt or moisture such as perspiration from the case and crystal with a soft cloth.

• For a metallic, plastic or rubber watchband, wash any dirt off with water. Remove the small amounts of dirt trapped between the crevices of the metallic band with a soft brush.

• If you will not be using your watch for an extended period of time, carefully wipe off any perspiration, dirt or moisture and store in a proper location, avoiding locations subject to excessively high or low temperatures and high humidity.

The paint on the dial and hands helps you with reading the time in a dark place. The luminous paint stores light (daylight or artificial light) and glows in a dark place. It is free from any radioactive substance or any other material harmful to a human body or environment.

• The light emission gradually becomes weaker as time passes.

• The duration of the light (“glow”) will vary depending on the brightness, types of and distance from a light source, exposure time, and the amount of the paint.

• The paint may not glow and/or may dissipate quickly if exposure to light was not sufficient.

59

Warranty and service

In the case a malfunction has occurred during the course of normal use while the watch is till under warranty, the watch will be repaired free of charge in accordance with the conditions of the warranty included with this manual.

Our standard period for stocking repair parts for each model is generally seven years. When an exterior part such as the watch case, glass, dial, hand, crown or band is damaged, a spare part with different appearance may sometimes be used.

Repairs can be performed on your watch within the repair parts stock period even after the free guarantee has expired. However, you will be charged for these repairs. Please take the watch to the shop where you purchased it and ask whether it can be repaired because the repair period varies according to the conditions of use, environment and so forth. Moreover, there are cases in which it is difficult to restore the watch to its original accuracy when decreased accuracy has resulted from long-term use.

In the event that you have moved or have received your watch as a gift, and are not able to bring your watch to the shop where it was purchased for serving, please consult Customer Support Center.
