To Avoid Injury
When Wearing Your Watch
eather, genuine skin and rubber (urethane) bands will
deteriorate over time due to perspiration, body oils and dirt. Be
sure to replace the band periodically.
he 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.
• I t is recommended to take off the watch if it gets wet, even if
the watch itself is water resistant.
o not wear the band too tightly. Try to leave enough space
between the band and your skin to allow adequate ventilation.
he 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.
• Please request adjustment or repair of the band in the
following cases:
• You notice an abnormality with the band due to corrosion.
• The pin of the band is protruding.
• We do not recommend attempting to adjust the watch band
yourself. Special expertise and experience is required for proper
adjustment. If not adjusted correctly, the band may become
detached leading to loss of your watch. (Some retailers may supply
a band adjustment tool with your purchase).
For band adjustment, we recommend you consult the retailer from
where the watch was purchased or your nearest Authorized Citizen
Service Center. Some repair shops may charge a nominal fee for
adjustment if the watch was not purchased directly from them.
• 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.
Operate the
crown or
button when
the watch is wet
lways 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 or any push buttons when the
watch is wet. Water may enter the watch causing damage to
vital components.
• If water enters the watch or the watch fogs up and does not
clear up even after a long time, consult your dealer or
Authorized Service Center for inspection and/or repair.
• Even if your watch has a high level of water resistance, please
be careful of the following.
• I f your watch is immersed in sea water, rinse thoroughly with
fresh water and wipe with a dry cloth.
• Do not pour water from a tap directly onto your watch.
• Take off your watch before taking a bath.
• 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.
Scuba diving
using an air
• 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.
o 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.
• Take off your watch before going to bed.
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.
Water Resistance
• Refer to the watch dial and the case back for the indication of
the water resistance of your watch. The following chart provides
examples of use for reference to ensure that your watch is used
properly. (The unit “1 bar” is roughly equal to 1 atmosphere.)
• WATER RESIST (ANT) ××bar may also be indicated as
• Non-water resistant watches cannot be used underwater or in
environments in contact with water.
Zeroing the Chronograph Second Hand
[Setting the Time]

• 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 keeping time accurately.
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.
<Static Electricity>
• The integrated circuits (IC) used in quartz watches are sensitive
to static electricity. Please note that the watch may operate
erratically or not at all if exposed to intense static electricity.
<Chemicals, Corrosive Gasses and Mercury>
• 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.
<Protective Stickers>
• Be sure to remove any protective stickers that may be on your
watch (case back, band, clasp, etc.). Otherwise, perspiration or
moisture may enter the gaps between the protective stickers
and the parts, which may result in a skin rash and/or
corrosion of the metal parts.
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.
• T he 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.
• T he case and band of the watch come into direct contact with
the skin. If you think there is something wrong, discontinue
wearing the watch immediately and consult your physician. In
the case of accumulation of sweat or dirt on a metal band or
case, clean thoroughly using a brush and neutral detergent. In
the case of a leather band, wipe clean using a dry cloth.
• L eather bands may become discolored by perspiration or dirt.
Always keep your leather band clean by wiping with a dry cloth.

Warranty and
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.
• Charging the watch too close to a light source which generates
a large amount of heat such as an incandescent lamp or
halogen lamp.
* W hen charging under an incandescent lamp, be sure to leave
50cm 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.
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 (urethane) 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.
• For a leather band, wipe off dirt using a dry cloth.
• 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.
When Luminous Paint is used for your watch
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.
• T he light emission gradually becomes weaker as time passes.
• T he 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.
• T he paint may not glow and/or may dissipate quickly if
exposure to light was not sufficient.
• Water resistance
As the water resistance will be reduced over time,
you should have your watch inspected and its
water resistance verified every 2-3 years (charge
basis) to extend its life and ensure safety. To
maintain its water resistance, it is recommended
to request us to replace the packings and other
parts of your watch.
• Disassembling for internal cleaning (repair)
You should have your watch disassembled and
its internal components cleaned periodically to
extend its life. Lubrication oils are used to reduce
wearing of moving parts such as gears. However,
over time the lubrication oils will degrade
and wear will increase, eventually resulting in
malfunction. Please have your watch undergo
internal cleaning once every 5 years as a guide.
<Other Inquiries>
If you have any questions regarding the way
warranty, repairs or other matters, please
inquire at the shop where you purchased your
watch or Customer Support Center.
