This may result in burns to the wearer and/or malfunction of your watch. * Be careful when putting on or taking off your watch since there is a risk of pinching your skin or damaging your fingernails depending on the manner in which the band is fastened.CAUTION Precautions * Always wear your watch with the crown pushed in to the normal position. If your crown is a screw down type, be sure it is properly screwed down (locked) to the case. * Do not operate the crown or any buttons when the watch is wet. This may allow the entrance of moisture and cause damage to sensitive components. * If water enters the watch or the watch fogs up and does not clear up even after a long time, consult Authorized Service Center for inspection and/or repair. * If a watch of upgraded water resistance for daily use is immersed in sea water or subjected to excessive perspiration, thoroughly rinse with fresh water and wipe completely dry with a soft cloth. * If seawater enters the watch, place the watch in a box or plastic bag and immediately take it in for repair. Otherwise, pressure inside the watch will increase, and parts (crystal, crown, buttons, etc.) may come off.CAUTION When Wearing Your Watch * The durability of a leather, cloth, or natural skin strap may be affected by moisture and perspiration. Moreover, wet leather may cause a rash. Be sure to keep your strap dry and clean. * It is recommended to take off the watch if it gets wet, even if the watch itself is water-resistant. * Do not wear your watch too tightly. Try to leave enough space between the watch and your skin to allow adequate ventilation. * A rubber type strap may become stained by dyes or soils found in clothing and other accessories. Since these stains may become permanent, take caution when wearing your watch with items that may transfer color (articles of clothing, purses, dyed bracelets, etc.). * Solvents, moisture and perspiration may cause the strap to deteriorate. Be sure to replace a strap that has become dried, brittle, or cracked to prevent loss due to strap failure. * The watch may stop or the function of the watch may be impaired in extremely high or low temperature. Do not use the watch in places where the temperature is outside the operating temperature range as stated in the specifications. * The integrated circuits (IC) used in quartz watches are sensitive to static electricity. Please note that the watch may malfunction if exposed to intense static electricity. * Analog type quartz watches are powered by a motor that utilizes a small magnet. The operation of this motor can be disturbed if the watch is subjected to magnetic items resulting in the malfunction of the watch. Do not allow the watch to come into close proximity to magnetic items such as “health” bracelets or necklaces, coin trays, latches found in cabinets and refrigerators, certain clasps of handbags and cell phone pouches, cell phone speakers, certain sporting accessories, MRI equipment, etc. * Avoid dropping the watch or subjecting it to other strong impact. It may cause malfunctions and/ or performance deterioration as well as damage to the case and bracelet. * If paint thinner, benzene or other solvents or products containing these solvents (including gasoline, nail-polish remover, cresol, bathroom cleaners and adhesives, water repellent, etc.) are allowed to come in contact with the watch, they may cause discoloration, deterioration and damage materials of the watch. Be careful when handling these chemicals. Contact with mercury such as that used in thermometers may also cause discoloration of the band and case.CAUTION Always Keep Your Watch Clean * Rotate the crown while it is pressed in fully and press the buttons periodically so they do not become stuck due to accumulations of foreign matter. Note: Do not operate the crown or any buttons when the watch is wet. * The case and band of the watch come into direct contact with the skin in the same manner as undergarments. Corrosion of the metal or unnoticed soiling such as that caused by perspiration and dirt can soil sleeves and other portions of clothing. Keep your watch clean at all times. * The case and band of the watch come in to direct contact with the skin. This may result in unnoticed accumulations of dirt and foreign matter caused by normal wear. Accumulated matter may cause rust, discoloration, and premature wear. Be sure to regularly clean your watch with a soft cloth. If severe accumulations occur, you may need to have your case and/or bracelet professionally cleaned. * In some instances, accumulations of dirt and foreign matter may cause skin reactions. This may also occur due to certain allergies beyond our control. If this occurs, immediately discontinue use of your watch and consult your physician.Leather, cloth, and other natural skin straps may become discolored or brittlefrom moisture, perspiration and/or accumulated dirt. To maximize the life ofyour strap, be sure to keep your leather band clean and dry by wiping it witha soft cloth each day.CAUTION Caring for Your Watch * Wipe any dirt or moisture such as perspiration from the case and crystal with a soft cloth. * If you will not be using your watch for an extended period of time, carefully wipe off any perspiration, dirt or moisture and store in a proper location, avoiding locations subject to excessively high or low temperatures and high humidity.

Solar-powered watch handling precautions

* Your watch enjoys regular exposure to light. Wearing in situations that prevent light exposure such as long shirt or coat sleeves will prevent your watch from receiving light sufficient for charging. In these instances, supplemental charging may be needed. * When you take your watch off, try and place it in a bright location. This will ensure your watch receives light for charging and will continue to operate properly. Storing your watch in dark places for extended periods of time may cause the stored energy to become depleted and your watch to stop. CAUTION Recharging Precautions * Do not charge your watch at high temperatures (60°C/140°F) as this may cause damage to sensitive components and the watch to malfunction. Examples: * Charging the watch too close to a light source which generates a large amount of heat such as an incandescent lamp or halogen lamp. * When charging your watch under an incandescent lamp, be sure to leave 50 cm (19-11/16 inches) distance between the lamp and the watch to avoid excessive heat. Never use a halogen lamp for recharging as these generate excessive heat. * Charging the watch in a location where the temperature may be the dashboard of a vehicle. * Your watch features a cell that does not need regular replacement. However, after an extended period of time, power consumption may increase due to deterioration of lubrication in the movement. This may result in shorter than expected run time. Be sure to have your watch regularly inspected by an Authorized Service Center. Note: Regular maintenance is not covered under the terms of the warranty.WARNING Handling of Rechargeable Cell * The rechargeable cell should never be removed from the watch. If for any reason it becomes necessary to remove the rechargeable cell from the watch, keep out of the reach of children to prevent accidental swallowing. If the rechargeable cell is accidentally swallowed, consult a doctor immediately. * Do not dispose of the rechargeable cell with ordinary garbage. Please follow the instructions of your municipality regarding collection of batteries to prevent the risk of fire or environmental contamination.WARNING Use Only the Specified Rechargeable Cell * Never install a conventional battery in your watch. Only use the specified rechargeable cell. Your watch is designed to operate only with the original type of rechargeable cell. It is not designed to run or be used with a conventional type of battery. Installing such a battery may result in overcharging which may cause the battery to burst. This can cause damage to the watch and injury to the wearer. If for any reason the rechargeable cell needs replacement, be sure to use onlythe original type rechargeable cell. We recommend contacting your nearestAuthorized Service Center for this service.

Selecting a time zone (city)

• Table of radio controlled time zones (city)Notes on the radio signal reception Modes supporting this function [LAX] [DEN][CHI] [NYC] [LON] ■ Receiving the radio signal There are three ways to receive the radio signal. This watch also incorporatesa function to check last radio reception results. → pages 14 and 15Reception method | Explanations —|— Automatic reception | Receives the signal at 2:00 a.m. every day. If receptionis unsuccessful, the watch tries to receive at 3:00 a.m. and 4:00 a.m. On demand reception | Receive the signal manually when you want to adjust thetime and date. page 24 Recovery automatic | Reception Receives the signal automatically aftercharging when the watch stops due to insufficient charge. * These reception operations take place only when the crown is in the closed position and the watch is not moved. * When the watch is in a low power state (second hand moving in two second intervals), radio reception will not be attempted. * Radio signal reception cannot be deactivated. * Even when this watch receives a radio signal successfully, the accuracy of the displayed time will be dependent on the reception environment and internal processing. * If the watch is not able to receive the signal, it will operate normally within an accuracy range of ±15 seconds per month. ■ During radio reception: Remove the watch and place it on a stable surface where it can receive thesignal better, such as next to a window. • The reception antenna is located at the 6:00 position of the watch. Placethe watch with the 6:00 position facing toward the station. • While the watch is receiving radio signals (the second hand indicates RX, H,M, or L), do not move the watch as a successful update will not be acheived. ■ Note on the radio signalThis watch receives the radio signal from the two signal stations located inU.S.A. or Germany and automatically adjusts the time and date. The receivablesignal stations are listed as follows:Signal stations|Kind of the radio signal —|— Fort Collins station, Denver, Colorado State, U.S.A. | WWVB Mainflingen station, southeast Frankfurt, Germany | DCF77 ■ When signal reception is poor Radio signal reception may be affected by the surrounding environment. High-tension wires nearby or windows containing wire meshes make it difficult toreceive radio signal. In this case, you should find another suitable placeconsidering the location of the transmitter station in your region. Then,place the watch at a window facing to the station and attempt manualreception. →pages 24 and 25 If the window contains wire screens, open the window or change the location ofthe watch.■ Poor reception areas It may be difficult to receive the radio signal properly under certainenvironmental conditions or in areas susceptible to radio noise. * Near high-tension electrical lines, railway overhead wires or communication facilities * Inside reinforced concrete buildings, between tall buildings, mountains, or underground * Near mobile phones that are in use

During the Daylight Saving Time season

Some areas observe Daylight Saving Time. * Daylight Saving Time rules will vary depending on the country or region within a country.When the watch receives a successful radio signal update for the 5 cities, theDaylight Saving Time setting is automatically updated, provided the user has not manually turned OFF overridden the Daylight Saving Time setting. Ifyou live in an area that does not receive a radio signal, you will need toupdate the Daylight Saving Time setting manually. — Page 30 Checking the daylight savings time setting While the watch is in the time display mode or A-TM mode and the crown is set at position , perform the following steps. 1. Press and release the upper right button (B). The second hand moves and points to the current setting for daylight savingstime (ON or OFF). 2. Press and release the upper right button (B). The current time display mode is resumed. • Even if the button is not pressed, the current time display mode is resumedautomatically after about 10 seconds. To manually change the Daylight Saving Time setting 1. Pull the crown out to position . 2. Rotate the crown to choose the city. → pages 16 and 17 3. Pull the crown out to position . 4. Press and release the upper right button (B) to change the daylight savings time setting to ON or OFF. —page 29 5. Return the crown to position to finish the setting.Precautions for setting the daylight savings time to ON/OFF When manually changing the Daylight Saving Time from OFF to ON to OFF, thisengages the manual override built into the watch. This manual overrideprecludes Daylight Saving Time from being automatically adjusted during theradio signal update. If this function is not desired, the only way to cancel the manual override isto do the all reset and 0-Positioning outlined. + page 54• Sharing of daylight savings time setting * The Daylight Saving Time / standard time is shared by multiple cities and regions within the range of each transmitter station (Germany or U.S.A.). Whenever radio signal is received from each station, the setting is updated automatically. * If you manually set the watch to the standard time in a city, the watch will always indicate the standard time for that city without synchronizing with other cities.If you live in an area that does not observe Daylight Saving Time Change the daylight savings time setting to OFF manually. Then, as long as thecity is selected, the setting remains OFF and the watch ignores the daylightsavings time update direction included in the radio signal.

All reset and turn into zero position:

If watches face a strong shock or facing static electricity, they will notcorrectly operate. You can correct the reference or set it up to the 0positions after performing all reset actions in these cases. Before you restthe item, you need to make sure that it is fully charged and the second handwill move within one-second intervals.If you execute the all reset when watches are not enough charged, alloperations on subsequently will not going to operate, and they will becomeimpossible. So the watch will stop completely.To reset, rotate your crown when it is normal to align mode hands with thechronograph mode, which is indicated in the mode sub-dial. Then pull thatcrown out for two steps into position two. Each of the dates and hands willmove the reference or the stored min memory 0 positions. And after that, theywill stop.Continuously press and hold your right lower and upper buttons and thenrelease them together. There will be a confirmation sound, and then ademonstration from the hand movements will perform on the order of thefunction hand as 24 hour, hour, and minute hands. And there is a second handto demonstrate that your all reset is completed.Adjust your reference or the 0 positions as your last step. When the crown ispulled to two steps to position two, you need to adjust the 24 hour, hour,minute, and second hands. Then next, adjust your function hand and the datewith the position one of the crown.Press your crown into the normal position, and then all reset.ConclusionCitizen Eco watches are not that simple to adjust, but you can do it with morestraightforward tricks if you have the right instructions.
