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. * 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.
