This watch receives a time calibration signal and updates its time setting accordingly.
Supported time calibration signals: Germany (Mainflingen), England (Anthorn).
See the information under “Signal Reception Troubleshooting” if you experience
problems with time calibration signal reception.
Current Time Setting
This watch adjusts its time setting automatically in accordance with a time calibration
signal. You also can perform a manual procedure to set the time and date, when
The first thing you should do after purchasing this watch is to specify your
Home City, which is the city where you normally will use the watch. For more
information, see “To specify your Home City”.
When using the watch outside the areas covered by the time signal transmitters, you
will have to adjust the current time setting manually as required. See
for more information about manual time settings.
To specify your Home City
1. In the Timekeeping Mode, hold down A for about five
seconds until the watch beeps twice.
The second hand will move to the city code of the
currently selected Home City. This is the city code
setting mode.
2. Use B to move the second hand to the city code you
want to use as your Home City.
Each press of B causes the second hand to advance
clockwise to the next city code.
Time calibration signal reception is supported when
any one of the city codes shown in the table below is

of the time calibration signal transmitters supported by this watch.

Timekeeping Mode.

Even if the time calibration signal is received correctly, there are some times when
the analog hands may not indicate the correct time. If this happens, use the
procedures under “Adjusting the Home Positions” to check the home positions of the
hands, and make adjustments as required.
Time Calibration Signal Reception
There are two different methods you can use to receive the time calibration signal:
auto receive and manual receive.
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”.
12 o’clock
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.
Proper signal reception can be difficult or even impossible under the conditions listed
Signal reception normally is better at night than during the day.
Time calibration signal reception takes from two to seven minutes, but in some
cases it can take as long as 14 minutes. Take care that you do not perform any
button operations or move the watch during this time.

U.K. signal transmitter
approximate reception
range as of April 2007
In April 2007, the U.K. signal transmitter was moved from Rugby to Anthorn, which
resulted in a slight shift in the approximate reception range of the signal. The shift is
so slight that there is virtually no change in the ability to receive the signal.
Even when the watch is within the reception range of a transmitter, signal reception
may be impossible at times due to the effects of geographic contours, structures,
weather, the season of the year, the time of day, radio interference, etc. Note that the
signal becomes weaker at distances of approximately 500 kilometers from the
transmitter, which means that the influence of the conditions listed above becomes
even greater.
