whenever you change to Daylight Saving Time. Subtract one hour when you change
back to Standard Time.
• The lunitidal interval is the time elapsing between the Moon's transit over a meridian
and the next high tide at that meridian. See "Lunitidal Interval" for more information.
• This watch displays lunitidal intervals in terms of hours and minutes.
• The "Site Data List" and "Lunitidal Interval List" provide GMT differential, longitude,
and lunitidal interval information around the world.
• The following is the initial factory default Home Site data (Tokyo, Japan) when you
first purchase the watch, whenever battery power drops to Level 5, and whenever
you have the battery replaced. Change these settings to match the area where you
normally use the watch.
