move and the watch begins to keep
the correct time.
* The color display begins to rotate
simultaneous to movement of the
second hand.
* The above explanation uses an illustration of a typical model. The shape, position
and so forth of the window through which the color display is visible varies
4 depending on the particular model.
[Important Hint for Correctly Setting the Time]
* The time can be set more accurately by advancing the minute hand past the
correct time by about 4-5 minutes and then returning to the correct time
followed by pushing in the crown in synchronization with a standard time
signal and so forth.
<Color Display>
This watch uses a color disk that rotates for 1 minute together with the second
hand located beneath the watch dial. Although not presenting a problem during
the course of normal use, since the watch may temporarily run slow or fast if
subjected to a strong impact, handle the watch with care at all times. Furthermore,
if the watch should happen to run slow or fast, reset the time to the correct time.
For correct use within the design limits of the watch, confirm the level of waterresistance of your watch, as indicated on the dial and case, and consult the table.
2. Precautions
CAUTION: Water-resistance performance
There are several types of water-resistant watches, as shown
in the following table.
Examples of use
The unit "bar" is roughly equal to 1 atmosphere.
* WATER RESIST (ANT) xx bar may also be indicated as
W.R. xx bar.
(case back)
Minor exposure to water
(washing face, rain, etc.)
Moderate exposure to
water (washing, kitchen
work, swimming, etc.)
Marine sports
(skin diving)
Scuba diving
(with air tank)
Operation of the crown
with moisture visible
or no indication
Water-resistant to
3 atmospheres
WR 50 or WATER
RESIST(ANT) 5 bar or
Water-resistant to
5 atmospheres
WR 100/200 or
10bar/20 bar or
Water-resistant to
10/20 atmospheres
• Water-resistance for daily use (to 3 atmospheres): This type of watch is water-resistant to
minor exposure to water. For example, you may wear the watch while washing your face;
however, it is not designed for use underwater.
• Upgraded water-resistance for daily use (to 5 atmospheres): This type of watch is waterresistant to moderate exposure to water. You may wear the watch while swimming;
however, it is not designed for use while skin diving.
• Upgraded water-resistance for daily use (to 10/20 atmospheres): This type of watch may be
used for skin diving; however, it is not designed for scuba or saturated diving using helium
• 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,
buttons, etc.) may come off.
CAUTION: Keep your watch clean.
• Leaving dust and dirt deposited between the case and crown may result in difficulty in
pulling the crown out. Rotate the crown while in its normal position, from time to time, to
loosen dust and dirt and then brush it off.
• Dust and dirt tend to be deposited in gaps in the back of the case or band.
Deposited dust and dirt may cause corrosion and soil your clothing. Clean the watch
• Be sure to use the watch with the crown pressed in (normal position). If your watch has a
screw-lock type crown, be sure to tighten the crown completely.
• Do NOT operate the crown with wet fingers or when the watch is wet. Water may enter the
watch and compromise water-resistance.
• If the watch is used in seawater, rinse with fresh water afterward and wipe with a dry cloth.
• If moisture has entered the watch, or if the inside of the crystal is fogged up and does not
become clear within a day, immediately take the watch to your dealer or Citizen Service
Center for repair. Leaving the watch in such a state will allow corrosion to form inside.
Cleaning the Watch
• Use a soft cloth to wipe off dirt, perspiration and water from the case and crystal .
• Use a soft, dry cloth to wipe off perspiration and dirt from the leather band.
• To clean a metal, plastic, or rubber watchband, wash away dirt with mild soap and water.
Use a soft brush to remove dust and dirt jammed in the gaps in the metal band. If your
watch is not water-resistant, take it to your dealer.
NOTE: Avoid using solvents (thinner, benzine, etc.), as they may mar the finish.
WARNING: Handling of the battery
• Keep the battery out of the reach of small children. If a child swallows the battery, contact
a physician immediately.
CAUTION: Replacing the battery
• For replacement of the battery, take your watch to your dealer or Citizen Service Center.
• Replace the battery as soon as possible if the service life of the battery has expired. Leaving
a depleted battery in the watch may result in leakage, which can damage the watch
CAUTION: Operating environment
• Use the watch within the operating-temperature range specified in the instruction manual.
Using the watch where temperatures are outside the specified range, may result in
deterioration of functions or even stoppage of the watch.
• Do NOT use the watch in places where it is exposed to high temperature, such as in a
Doing so may result in a skin burn.
• Do NOT leave the watch in a place where it is exposed to high temperature, such as the
glove compartment or dash-board of a car.
Doing so may result in deterioration of the watch, such as deformation of plastic parts.
• Do NOT place the watch close to a magnet.
Timekeeping will become inaccurate if you place the watch close to magnetic health
equipment such as a magnetic necklace or a magnetic latch of a refrigerator door or
handbag clasp or the earphone of a mobile phone. If this has occurred, move the watch
away from the magnet and reset the time.
• Do NOT place the watch close to household appliances that generate static electricity.
Timekeeping may become inaccurate if the watch is exposed to strong static electricity,
such as is emitted from a TV screen.
• Do NOT subject the watch to a strong shock such as dropping it onto a hard floor.
• Avoid using the watch in an environment where it may be exposed to chemicals or
corrosive gases.
If solvents, such as thinner and benzine, or substances containing such solvents come in
contact with the watch, discoloration, melting, cracking, etc. may result. If the watch comes
in contact with mercury used in thermometers, the case, band or other parts may become
Periodical inspections
Your watch needs inspection once in every two or three years for safety and long use.
To keep your watch water-resistant, the packing needs to be replaced regularly.
Other parts need to be inspected and replaced if necessary.
Ask for Citizen geuine parts upon replacement.
