3.USE OF THIS WATCH

A)About Solar Power

This watch does not use a conventional battery, but an Eco Drive rechargeable energy cell. It is powered by light that is converted to electricity through a solar panel under the translucent dial.

The Eco Drive rechargeable power cell is a clean energy unit that does not use any toxic substances. Once fully charged, the watch will continue to run for about 6 months without further charging. However, it is recommended that the watch be exposed to light every day to ensure that maximum performance is achieved.

There is no need to be concerned about over-charging as there is a built in Over-Charge prevention feature.

B)Setting the Time and Date

If the crown is of the screw down type, be sure to unscrew the crown from the case before setting the time. After setting the time, be sure to screw the crown back to the case.

<Setting the Time>

1.Pull the crown out to the time correction position, two clicks out (The second hand stops when the crown is pulled out to this position.

2.Turn the crown to set then 24-hour hand and the minute hand to the current time in your location. At this time, the movement of the hour hand is linked with the movement of the 24-hour hand.

3.Push the crown back in to the normal position. (the second hand begins normal movement once the crown is pushed in)

4.Pull the crown out to the date correction position (1 “click” out)

5.Turn the crown to the right (clockwise) and set the hour hand to the current local time. Be sure to pay special attention to AM and PM as the location of the hour hand where the date changes is approximately 12:00 AM Midnight.

6.Return the crown to the normal position next to the case.

<Setting the Date>

1.Pull the crown out to the date correction position (1-click out)

2.Turn the crown to the left (counter-clockwise) and set the date.

3.Securely return the crown to the normal position

Since the date is linked to the movement of the hour hand, the date starts to change when the hour hand approaches 12:00 AM Midnight. Please note this when using the dual time feature.

DO NOT attempt to change or set the date when the hour hand is between 9:00 pm and 1:00 am. Setting the calendar when the hour hand is in this position may cause damage to the movement, and may result in improper operation of the date feature.
