• Normally, your watch should show the correct time as soon as you select your Home
City code. If it does not, it should adjust automatically after the next auto receive
operation (in the middle of the night). You also can perform manual receive or you
can set the time manually.
• The watch will receive the time calibration signal automatically from the applicable
transmitter (in the middle of the night) and update its settings accordingly. For
information about the relationship between city codes and transmitters, see "Home
City Codes and Transmitters".
• Under factory default settings, auto receive is turned off for all of the following city
codes: MOW (Moscow), HKG (Hong Kong), BJS (Beijing), HNL (Honolulu), and
ANC (Anchorage). For details about turning on auto receive for these city codes, see
"To turn auto receive on and off".

Time Calibration Signal Reception
There are two different methods you can use to receive the time calibration signal:

• Auto Receive
With auto receive, the watch receives the time calibration signal automatically up to
six times a day. When any auto receive is successful, the remaining auto receive
operations are not performed. For more information, see "About Auto Receive".
• Manual Receive
Manual receive lets you start a time calibration receive operation with the press of a
button. For more information, see "To perform manual receive".
• When getting ready to receive the time calibration signal, position the watch as
shown in the nearby illustration, with its 12 o'clock side facing towards a window.
This watch is designed to receive a time calibration signal late at night. Because of
this, you should place the watch near a window as shown in the illustration when you
take it off at night. Make sure there are no metal objects nearby.
• Make sure the watch is facing the right way.
