Your timepiece may have many more features or special setting procedures not found in these basic instructions. Please refer to the separate instruction booklet that may be included with your timepiece. You may also find setting instructions, Eco-Drive recharge information and answers to frequently asked questions in the technical support section of our web site at www.citizenwatch.com.

Screw-down Crown

Your model may feature a screw-down crown. Be sure to unscrew the crown prior to setting the time and/or date. After setting and before any contact with water, be sure to screw the crown to the case by turning the crown clockwise while applying gentle pressure in the direction of the case.

Note: Do not unscrew your crown or operate any button if your timepiece is wet.

Getting Started with Eco-Drive

 

(Does not apply to conventional battery operated models)

 

Your new Eco-Drive timepiece is specially powered by proprietary ECO-DRIVE TECHNOLOGY,

 

which converts any source of light (natural and artificial) into usable energy. The harnessed energy

 

is then stored in a special power reserve to keep your timepiece charged and running properly.

 

When fully charged, your Eco-Drive will continue running - even in total darknessfor at least six

 

(6) months. Properly maintained, it will never need another battery.

 

If you wear your new Citizen Eco-Drive timepiece on a regular basis, recharging will be virtually

 

automatic as regular exposure to light will keep your power reserve unending.

 

Recharge times will vary based on your timepiece and the type of light utilized. Direct sunlight is

 

the fastest, most efficient light source for recharging. Recharging information for your basic analog

 

timepiece can be found on page 4 of this booklet. For other models, please refer to your specific

 

instruction booklet or the technical support section of our web site at www.citizenwatch.com.

 

If you plan to store your Citizen Eco-Drive in the dark, you should do this for no more than six (6)

 

months. After this extended period of time, you should ensure that your timepiece is exposed to

2

bright light for the full recharge period as outlined in the recharge guide on page 4 in order to return

your timepiece to a full charge.

Recharging your basic analog Eco-Drive timepiece.

Your Eco-Drive timepiece thrives with regular exposure to light sufficient for charging. Some circumstances however may prevent your Eco-Drive timepiece from receiving regular exposure to light sufficient for charging. In these circumstances, you may need to provide supplemental exposure to light. The chart below outlines general recharging requirements for your basic analog Eco-Drive timepiece.

After your basic analog Eco-Drive timepiece is fully charged, it will run for a minimum of six (6) months without further charging.

Overcharge Protection Feature

Your Eco-Drive timepiece features an overcharge prevention system. When the rechargeable cell is fully charged, special circuits engage to prevent it from becoming overcharged. There is no need to worry about exposing your timepiece to “too much” light. 4

Low Charge Warning

Your basic analog timepiece may feature a low charge warning function to provide a visual indication that power is running low. If your timepiece features Eco-Drive technology, be sure to immediately recharge it to prevent complete loss of power. If your timepiece is operated by a conventional battery, have the battery replaced by an Authorized Service Center immediately.

Three hand models (hour, minute and second)

When a low charge state is reached, the second hand will jump in two-second increments.

Two hand models ( hour and minute)

The minute hand will jump every minute, rather than smoothly advancing to the next minute.

6

Time Setting Warning (Eco Drive only)

Your basic analog timepiece may feature a time setting warning function. This feature lets you know the timepiece has commenced operation after a complete discharge of energy but has not yet been set. This irregular movement will continue until the time is set, even if the timepiece has been fully charged after a complete discharge.

Three hand models (hour, minute and second)

The second hand will quickly advance 2 seconds, then another 2 seconds in a single jump.

Two hand models (hour and minute)

The minute hand quickly advances three steps rather than in one-minute increments.

Special Handling Instructions

1. Conventional Power Cell Replacements (does not apply to Eco-Drive)

Have the battery replaced regularly by an Authorized Citizen Service Center or dealer who will properly recycle or safely dispose of the expired battery. Expired batteries may leak and cause damage to the movement of your timepiece. If the battery expires while in your timepiece, have it replaced immediately.

2. Avoid Temperature Extremes

Exposing your timepiece to high or low temperatures may adversely affect timekeeping and potentially damage sensitive components. You should never place your timepiece on the dashboard of your vehicle or wear in a sauna or hot tub. Leaving your timepiece in extreme cold temperatures may cause irregular operation until the timepiece returns to normal operating temperature.

3.Avoid Strong Shocks

Your timepiece will withstand normal shock experienced during normal wear. Take care however not to drop or sharply knock your timepiece against objects.

4.Avoid strong magnetic fields and/or electronics that may emit static electricity.

Items such as magnetic bracelets, magnetic coin trays, cell phone speakers, portable speakers, microwave ovens, televisions and some computer monitors may cause erratic timekeeping.

5.Avoid chemicals and gases

Avoid wearing this timepiece in the presence of chemicals and gases such as some household cleaners, adhesives, paint, gasoline, benzine, nail polish remover, spray cosmetics including per-

fumes, or the like as these may cause discoloration, and deterioration of the case and band.
