Notes on charging your watch
This watch has a rechargeable cell which is charged
by exposing the dial to light, such as direct sunlight
or fluorescent lamps. After taking off the watch, put
it in a location where the dial is exposed to bright
light, such as by a window.

For optimal performance, perform the following:
• Expose the watch with the
dial facing towards direct
sunlight for five to six hours
at least once a month.
• Before storing the watch in
a dark place for an extended
period of time, be sure to charge it fully.
• When the watch is regularly covered with long sleeves,
it may not be charged sufficiently. Try to keep the watch
exposed to light sufficient for charging.
• Do not charge the watch at a high temperature (about 60ºC
or higher).

The watch operates by converting sunlight
and other light into electrical energy. Once the
rechargeable cell is fully charged, the watch will
function for approximately 7 months.
Insufficient charge warning
If the power becomes very low, the
second hand advances at 2-second
intervals, indicating that charging
is necessary. When the second
hand starts to advance at 2-second
intervals, expose the watch to light
until it is fully charged.
If the watch is not exposed to light within
approximately 7 days after the insufficient
charge warning starts, the watch will stop.
Quick start function
When the stopped watch is exposed to light, it
starts operating again immediately.
After quick start, expose the watch to light
until it is fully charged. Set the correct
time before using the watch.
Replacement of Rechargeable Cell
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)

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

<Stock Period of Repair Parts>
Our standard period for stocking repair
parts for each model is generally seven

the watch case, glass, dial, hand, crown
or band is damaged, a spare part with
different appearance may sometimes be
<Repair Period>
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
bet ween t he ba nd a nd your sk in to a l low adequate
· 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
<Static Electricity>
· 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
· 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.
<Strong Shock>
· 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.
<Chemicals, Corrosive Gasses and Mercury>
· If paint thinner, benzene or other solvents or products
containing these solvents (including gasoline, nailpolish
remover, cresol, bathroom cleaners and adhesives, water
repellent, etc.) are allowed to come into contact with the
watch, the 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.
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.
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.
<About the Watch with Luminous Paint>
The paint on the dial and hands helps you with reading the
time in a dark place. The luminous paint stores daylight or
artificial light (not including incandescent lighting) 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
· 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.
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.
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.
Below are the approximate times needed for charging when exposing the watch dial to light continuously.
Please use this table as a reference only.
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.
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.
