If the reference position is not set properly, the time, date, alarm ON/OFF positions and other watch functions will not be displayed properly. Before using this watch, check that the functions of the watch operate properly by performing the following procedure.
Position 1 while the reference position is displayed. Note: • The watch will not return to the local time mode even if button (A) is pressed if the crown is pulled out to Position 1 or Position 2. In addition, it will not automatically return to the local time mode after 2 minutes.
• After the function hand and date complete a demonstration movement (the function hand rotates backward by 180 degrees and then returns to its original position, while the date moves in coordination with the function hand), the watch enters the calendar correction mode.

6. Setting the Time 24 hour hand Hour hand Mode hand [Procedure for Setting the Time] 1. Pull the crown out to Position 1 (the second hand rapidly advances to the 30 seconds position and waits). Note: If the second hand does not stop at the 30 seconds position, refer to the section on “Reference Position Correction”...
7. Setting the Date This watch is equipped with a perpetual calendar that changes the year (number of years elapsed from the most recent leap year), month, date and day automatically until February 28, 2100, including leap years, once the date has been set.
The alarm function uses a 24 hour clock. Once the alarm has been set, the alarm sounds for 15 seconds when the set time is reached once a day. • When using the watch in each of time, calendar and alarm modes, the alarm sounds at the time that coincides with the time mode.
6. Return the crown to the normal position. [Switching Alarm ON and OFF] 1. Pull the crown out to Position 1 and then turn the crown to set the watch to the alarm mode [ALM]. • The hour hand and minute hand rapidly advance to the set alarm time.
9. Setting the Local Time • The local time [L-TM] function lets you set the watch to a time in a different area from the time set in the time mode [TME]. • The time difference can be corrected in 1 hour units based on the time mode. The local time can be set over a range of ±23 hours based on the time mode.
Allow light to shine on the solar cell until the watch returns to 1-second interval movement. Even after the watch has returned to 1-second interval movement, sufficiently charge the watch by exposing it to light by referring to “11.
When charged Charge the watch by allowing light to shine on the solar cell until the watch begins to run. In the case the watch has stopped as a result of being insufficiently charged, a minimum of 30 minutes are required until the watch begins to run again even if light shines on the solar cell.
• Although the watch will begin to run when light is allowed to shine on the solar cell after it has stopped as a result of being insufficiently charged, since the time is incorrect, reset the watch to the correct time after sufficiently charging.
2 minutes under direct sunlight Full charge time: Time to fully recharge the watch after it has stopped. One day usage: Time required for recharging the watch to run for 1 day with normal hand movement (1-second interval movement). Charging time...
14. All-Reset This watch may not function properly as a result of being subjected to the effects of static electricity, strong impact and so forth. When this happens, perform the All-Reset and Reference Position Alignment procedures described below. When performing the all-reset procedure, first make sure the watch is sufficiently charged and the second hand is moving at 1-second intervals.
10/20 atmospheres 100/200 WATER RESIST(ANT) For correct use within the design limits of the watch, confirm the level of water- resistance of your watch, as indicated on the dial and case, and consult the table. Moderate exposure to Minor exposure to water water (washing, kitchen (washing face, rain, etc.)
• If moisture has entered the watch, or if the inside of the crystal is fogged up and does not become clear within a day, immediately take the watch to your dealer or Citizen Service Center for repair. Leaving the watch in such a state will allow corrosion to form inside.
Using the watch where temperatures are outside the specified range, may result in deterioration of functions or even stoppage of the watch. • Do NOT use the watch in places where it is exposed to high temperature, such as in a sauna.
• Daily alarm (24 hour clock, alarm monitor, alarm ON/OFF) • Local time (time different correction: 1 hour units) 7. Continuous Operating Times • Time until watch stops without charging after being fully charged: : Approx. 1.5 years (with the power save feature operating continuously) : Approx.
