· Non-water resistant watches cannot be used underwater or
in environments in contact with water.
· Water-resistance for daily use (to 3 atmospheres) means that
the watch may be worn while washing your face or in the
rain, but is not to be immersed in water.
· Upgraded water-resistance for daily use (to 5 atmospheres)
means that the watch may be worn while swimming, but is
not to worn while skin diving.
· Upgraded water-resista nce for daily use (to 10/20
atmospheres) means that the watch may be worn while skin
diving, but not while scuba or saturated divi ng using
helium gas.
· Refer to the watch dial and the case back for the indication
of the water resistance of your watch. The following chart
provides examples of use for reference to ensure that your

<About the Watch with Luminous Paint>
The paint on the dial and hands helps you with reading the
time in a dark place. The luminous paint stores daylight or
artificial light (not including incandescent lighting) and
glows in a dark place.
It is free from any radioactive substance or any other material
harmful to a human body or environment.
· The light emission gradual ly becomes weaker as time
· The duration of the light (“glow”) will vary depending on
the brightness, types of and distance from a light source,
exposure time, and the amount of the paint.
· The paint may not glow and/or may dissipate quickly if
exposure to light was not sufficient.
· The rechargeable cell should never be removed from the
watch. If for any reason it becomes necessary to remove the
rechargeable cell from the watch, keep out of the reach of
children to prevent accidental swallowing.
If the rechargeable cell is accidentally swallowed, consult a
doctor immediately.
· Do not d ispose of the rechargeable cell w ith ordinary
garbage. Please follow the instructions of your municipality
regarding collection of batteries to prevent the risk of fire or
environmental contamination.
· Never use a battery other than the rechargeable cell specified
for use in this watch.
Although the watch structure is designed so that it will not
operate when another type of battery is installed, if a silver
battery or other type of battery is installed in the watch and
the watch is recharged, there is the risk of overcharging
which may cause the battery to rupture.
This can cause damage to the watch and injury to t he
wearer. When replacing the rechargeable cell, always make
sure to use the designated rechargeable cell.
· Do not charge the watch at a high temperature (about 60°C
or higher) as doing so may cause the movement to
· Charging the watch too close to a light source which
generates a large amount of heat such as an incandescent
lamp or halogen lamp.
* When charging under an incandescent lamp, be sure to
leave 50cm or more between the lamp and the watch to
avoid exposing the watch to excessive heat.
· Charging the watch in a location where the temperature
may become extremely high such as on the dashboard of a
· The durability of a leather band may be affected when wet
(fading, peeling of adhesive), owing to the properties of the
material. Moreover, wet leather may cause a rash.
· It is recommended to take off the watch if it gets wet, even if
the watch itself is water-resistant.
· Do Not wear the band too tightly. Try to leave enough space
between the band and your sk in to a llow adequate
· The rubber (urethane) band may be stained by dyes or soil
present in or on clothing or other accessories.
Since these stains may not be removable, caution is required
when wearing your watch with items that tend to easily
transfer color (articles of clothing, purses, etc.). In addition,
the band may be deteriorated by solvents or moisture in the
air. Replace with a new one when it has lost elasticity or
become cracked.
· The watch may stop or the function of the watch may be
impaired in extremely high or low temperature.
Do not use the watch in places where the temperature is
outside the operating temperature range as stated in the
<Static Electricity>
· The integrated circuits (IC) used in quartz watches are
sensitive to static electricity. Please note that the watch may
not indicate the correct time if exposed to intense static
· Analog quartz watches are powered by a step motor that
uses a magnet. Subjecting the watch to strong magnetism
from the outside can cause the motor to operate improperly
and prevent the watch from indicating the correct time. Do
not a llow the watch to come into close proximity to
magnetic health devices (magnetic necklaces, magnetic
elastic bands, etc.) or the magnets used in the latches of
refrigerator doors, clasps used in handbags, the speaker of a
cell phone, electromagnetic cooking devices and so on.
<Strong Shock>
· Avoid dropping the watch or subjecting it to other strong
impact. It may cause malfunctions and/or performance
deterioration as well as damage to the case and bracelet.
<Chemicals, Corrosive Gasses and Mercury>
· If paint thinner, benzene or other solvents or products
containing these solvents (including gasoline, nailpolish
remover, cresol, bathroom cleaners and adhesives, water
repellent, etc.) are allowed to come into contact with the
watch, the may discolor, dissolve or crack the materials. Be
careful when handling these chemicals. Contact with
mercury such as that used in thermometers may also cause
discoloration of the band and case.
· Rotate the crown while it is pressed in fully and press the
buttons periodically so they do not become stuck due to
accumulations of foreign matter.
· The case and band of the watch come into direct contact
with the skin in the same manner as undergarments.
Corrosion of the metal or unnoticed soiling such as that
caused by perspiration and dirt can soil sleeves and other
portions of clothing. Keep your watch clean at all times.
· The case and band of the watch come into direct contact
with the skin. Rust, dirt or perspiration present on the
watch's body or band may cause itching or a rash on your
skin. Such problems may also occur if you have an allergy
to certain metals or leather. If you think there is something
wrong, discontinue wearing the watch immediately and
consult your physician.
· Leather bands may become discolored by perspiration or
dirt. Always keep your leather band clean by wiping with a
dry cloth.
