Be sure to remove any protective stickers that may be on your watch (case back, band, clasp, etc.) Otherwise, 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.

Band adjustment

We do not recommend attempting to adjust the watch band yourself. Special expertise and experience is required for proper adjustment. If not adjusted correctly, the band may become detached leading to loss of your watch. (Some retailers may supply a band adjustment tool with your purchase).

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.

After taking off the watch, put it in a location where the dial is exposed to bright light, such as by a window.

The watch can be charged effectively when the dial is exposed to sunlight as shown in the figure.

For optimal performance, be sure to:

Charge the watch by exposing it to direct sunlight for five to six hours at least once a month.

Avoid leaving the watch in a dark place for long periods of time.

Charging your watch

If the watch is obscured from light by long sleeves frequently, supplemental charging may be needed to ensure continual operation.

Do not charge the watch at high temperature (about 60°C/140°F or higher).

English

13

Charging your watch

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. Be sure to fully charge your watch.

When the watch is sufficiently charged, the second hand will move normally.

If you do not charge the watch for 2

days or longer after the insufficient charge warning movement has begun, the watch will be depleted of all power and stop.

• When in the insufficient charge warning state, the current time and date are indicated. However, you cannot configure or confirm settings, or operate the chronograph.
