purchase, be sure to carefully read this manual and keep it on hand for later reference
when necessary.

Mean Time differential of –3.5 hours. Because of this, the radio-controlled
timekeeping and World Time functions will not display the correct time for
Newfoundland, Canada.

You can use this watch even as its battery is being charged by exposure to bright
light.

The initial factory default setting is Power Saving on.
