<About band adjustment>
Do not adjust the length of the band by yourself. If you fail to perform the work properly, the
watch may fall off, or an injury may occur during adjustment. Consult the shop where you
purchased the watch or your nearest Authorized Citizen Service center.
If you purchase a product which is sold with a special tool for band adjustment, you may
carefully adjust the band yourself.
<Notes before use—Protective stickers>
Prior to the watch being shipped from the manufacturing plant, its glass, case, metal
band, and metal parts of the clasp are covered with stickers to protect them from getting
fingerprints or scratches during transit from the plant to the store.
If the watch is worn without first removing these stickers, 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.
For this reason, please be sure to peel off the stickers before wearing the watch.

Notes on the reception of the time signal
Receiving the time signal
There are three ways to receive the time signal:
Methods
Automatic reception
Explanations
Receives the signal at 2:00 a.m. every day. If reception is unsuccessful, then,
the watch tries to receive at 3:00 a.m. and 4:00 a.m.
Receives the signal when you want to adjust the time and calendar. See page
On demand reception
24.
Recovery automatic
reception
Receives the signal automatically after charging when the watch stops due to
an insufficient charge.
The chronograph second hand indicates the receiving result (success/failure, levels) and the
minute hand indicates the receiving station. (See page 25.)
26
• Even when this watch receives a time signal successfully, the accuracy of displayed time will
be dependent on the reception environment and internal processing.
• If the watch is not able to receive a signal, it will operate normally within an accuracy range
of ±15 seconds per month.
When receiving the time signal
Remove the watch and place it on a stable surface where
it can receive the signal better, such as next to a window.
• The reception antenna is located at the 9:00 position of
the watch. Place the watch with the 9:00 position facing
toward the station.
• Do not move the watch during the time signal
reception.
• The watch will not receive a time signal when in a low
charge state as indicated by the second hand moving
in two second increments (the insufficient charge
warning).
Charge the watch before reception.
27
Poor reception areas
It may be difficult to receive the time signal properly under certain environmental conditions
or in areas susceptible to radio noise.
• Extremely hot or cold locations
• Near high-tension electrical
lines, railway overhead wires or
communication facilities
• Inside vehicles
• Inside reinforced concrete
buildings, between tall buildings,
mountains, or underground
• Near electrical equipment or office
appliances
28
• Near cellular phones that are in
use
When signal reception is poor
The surroundings near your house, such as high-tension electrical lines or structures may
block the path to the signal location, this can cause a poor environment for receiving the time
signal.
With reference to pages 21 to 23, search for a better place for reception.
Then, attempt to receive the time signal in the procedure on pages 24.
• When the reception result is “L”, place the watch in another location so that “H” or “M” is
indicated.
If the signal reception is still poor,
consult Citizen Consumer Help Desk (TEL: 0120–78–4807).
We will provide a map showing the locations of the signal stations.

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.
For optimal performance:
• Expose the watch with the dial towards direct sunlight for several hours at least once a
month.
• After taking off the watch, put it in a position so that the dial is exposed to bright light,
such as by a window.
• 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 60˚C or higher).
36
When the watch reaches a low charge state—insufficient charge warning function
When the power reserve becomes low, the second hand moves once every two seconds—This
is the insufficient charge warning function. Charge the watch by exposing the dial to light.
• After the watch is charged, the second hand will move normally. See page 38.
• If you have not charged the watch for six days or more since the insufficient charge warning
movement began, the watch will run out power and stop.
Caution
When the second hand moves once every
two seconds, you cannot use any functions—
chronograph, alarm, etc.—except the time indication.

Eco-Drive (solar-powered) watch handling precautions
<Always Make Sure to Recharge Frequently>
• 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.
46
<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) 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.
47
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.
50
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.
51
CAUTION
When Wearing Your Watch
<Band>
• 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.
<Temperature>
• 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.
52
<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 electricity.
<Magnetism>
• 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.
53
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.
54
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.
<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
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.
55
