About the backlight

When you switch the backlight function on, the backlight of the watch flashes whenever a daily alarm or countdown alarm is sounding, or when various signals are sounded in the Stopwatch and Alarm Modes. For details of each of these operations, see the applicable sections of this manual.

The backlight of this watch employs an electro-luminescent(EL) light, which loses its illuminating power after very long term use.

To switch the backlight function on and off

In the Timekeeping Mode, hold down B for one or two seconds to switch the backlight function on and off.

The backlight function indicator remains on the display in all modes.

The above operation controls operation of the backlight function only. It does not affect operation of audible tones and signals.

Pressing D at any time illuminates the display for about three seconds, regardless of the backlight’s on/off setting.

The watch will emit an audible sound whenever the display is illuminated. This is caused by a transistor that vibrates when the EL panel lights up. It does not indicate malfunction of the watch.
