    NIGHT VISION The Night Vision watch makes use of Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) for its flashlight and soft dial lighting. LEDs last longer than conventional incandescent bulbs, and are more durable and energy-efficient. Please note that the battery life of the lighting functions is significantly reduced with greater use.

  • Page 36

    Time and Date To set time and date please refer to page 3 (Three Hand Analog Quartz). Lighting Functions 1. Dial Illumination Mode One quick push of the pusher will activate the soft LED light. The angle of the light directs it to reflect off the crystal for maximum visibility of the dial and hands.

  • Page 37

    2. Extended Light Mode Two quick pushes of the pusher will activate the LED flashlight for 2 minutes. Light will automatically deactivate, or you can turn the light off by pressing the pusher once. 3. Signal Mode Three quick pushes of the pusher will cause the light to strobe continuously.

  • Page 38

    Light Function The lighting module of your Night Vision watch operates off of a separate battery power source (2 battery cells) than the watch movement itself (1 battery cell). Batteries are 3 volt 2016 Lithium batteries. Please use an authorized Swiss Army Brands service center in the event either the light module or watch battery require replacement.
