A. BEFORE USING

This watch is not powered by a conventional battery, but is powered by converting light to electrical energy.

Before using, be sure to fully charge your watch by exposing it to light. (See “F. Time required for charging”, for charge time reference)

Once fully charged, the watch will continue to run for approximately 6 months without additional charging. We do recommend exposing your watch to light every day to ensure optimum performance. Always be sure to recharge the watch before it stops.

Your watch features an Overcharge Prevention Function so there is no need to worry about overcharging your watch.

A special energy storage cell is used to store electrical energy. This special cell does not require replacement and is a clean energy unit that does not use any toxic substances.

3.The watch will start after the crown is firmly pushed back into its normal position.

W Setting the calendar

1.Pull the crown out to the 1st click (calendar setting position).

2.Set the desired date by turning the crown counterclockwise.

3.Set the desired day of the week by turning the crown clockwise.

In the case of date display models, turning the crown clockwise will result in the loose play of the crown.

4. After you have set the calendar, be sure to press the crown back to its normal position.

Do not adjust the calendar when the watch is reading as below. Otherwise the calendar may not change correctly.

*Date display models ..... between 9:00 pm and 1:00 am

When the watch is exposed to light, the Quick Start Function will begin operating and the second hand will start moving. The correct time can be set once the watch is fully charged.

6

W Insufficient Charge Warning Function

The second hand changes to a two second

interval movement to indicate insufficient recharging.

Even in such a case, the watch keeps correct time, but about 4 days after the two second interval movement begins, the watch will stop.

After exposing the watch to light, recharging takes place and the watch returns to one second interval movement.

Two second interval movement

The watch will stop if it is completely discharged.

It will begin to operate soon after it is exposed to light.

(However, the time to start may vary according to the brightness of the light.)

W Overcharge Prevention Function

You can recharge your watch without worry.

Once the special energy storage cell is fully charged, the overcharge prevention function comes into operation and prevents over-charging of the energy storage cell.

D. CARE AND HANDLING DURING CHARGING

W Notes on Use

To maintain optimal performance, be sure to expose your watch to light regularly.

Please note that if you wear long sleeves, your watch may be hidden from light and may result in insufficient charging. As such, additional exposure to light may be necessary.

• When you take your watch off, be sure to place it in as bright an area as possible.

W Notes on recharging

Avoid recharging your watch in areas of high temperatures (over about 60 °C / 140 °F), otherwise the sensitive components of the watch may become damaged. (e.g.) Incandescent lights generate heat sufficient to damage your watch. Be sure to

keep the watch at least 50cm (20inches) away from the bulb so no damage occurs. We do not recommend the use of Halogen bulbs for recharging.

Never place your watch on the dashboard or rear deck of a vehicle as the heat generated in these areas can damage your watch.

E. ABOUT THE ENERGY STRAGE CELL

Unlike ordinary watches, the special energy storage cell used in your watch does not need regular replacement. This is a clean energy cell that will last the life of the watch.

CAUTION:

The energy cell should last the life of the watch. Never allow anyone other than an Authorized Service Center to replace this cell. The movement is designed to operate with only the original energy storage cell. If an alternate cell is installed, such as a conventional battery, the battery may become overcharged resulting in damage to the movement and/or bursting of the cell, which could cause injury to the user.
