Illumination

This watch has an EL (electro-luminescent)panel that causes the entire display to glow for easy reading in the dark.

Illumination Precautions

Theelectro-luminescentpanel that provides illumination loses power after very long use.

Illumination may be hard to see when viewed under direct sunlight.

The watch may emit an audible sound whenever the display is illuminated. This is due to vibration of the EL panel used for illumination, and does not indicate malfunction.

Illumination turns off automatically whenever an alarm sounds.

Frequent use of illumination runs down the battery.

Operation Guide 2998/2999

Reference

This section contains more detailed and technical information about watch operation. It also contains important precautions and notes about the various features and functions of this watch.

Button Operation Tone

Mute indicator

The button operation tone sounds any time you press one of the watch’s buttons. You can turn the button operation tone on or off as desired.

Even if you turn off the button operation tone, the alarm, Hourly Time Signal, and Countdown Timer Mode alarm all operate normally.

To turn the button operation tone on and off

In any mode (except when a setting screen is on the display), hold down Cto toggle the button operation tone on (mute indicator not displayed) and off (mute indicator displayed).

Holding down Cto turn the button operation tone on or off also causes the watch’s current mode to change.

The mute indicator is displayed in all modes when the button operation tone is turned off.

Auto Return Features

If you leave the watch in the Alarm Mode for two or three minutes without performing any operation, it changes to the Timekeeping Mode automatically.

If you leave a screen with flashing digits on the display for two or three minutes without performing any operation, the watch saves any settings you have made up to that point and exits the setting screen automatically.

Scrolling

The B and Dbuttons are used in various modes and setting screens to scroll through data on the display. In most cases, holding down these buttons scrolls at high speed.

Initial Screens

When you enter the World Time or Alarm Mode, the data you were viewing when you last exited the mode appears first.

World Time

The seconds count of the World Time is synchronized with the seconds count of the Timekeeping Mode.

All World Time Mode times are calculated from the current Home City time in the Timekeeping Mode using UTC time differential values.

The UTC differential is a value that indicates the time difference between a reference point in Greenwich, England and the time zone where a city is located.

The letters “UTC” is the abbreviation for “Universal Time Coordinated”, which is the world-widescientific standard of timekeeping. It is based upon carefully maintained atomic (cesium) clocks that keep time accurately to within microseconds. Leap seconds are added or subtracted as necessary to keep UTC in sync with the Earth’s rotation.
