Operation Guide 5122
Congratulations upon your selection of this CASIO watch.
This watch does not have a city code that corresponds to the UTC offset of –3.5
hours. Because of this, the radio-controlled atomic timekeeping function will not
display the correct time for Newfoundland, Canada.
Note that CASIO COMPUTER CO., LTD. assumes no responsibility for any
damage or loss suffered by you or any third party arising through the use of this
product or its malfunction.

The watch is charged sufﬁciently.
For details about charging, see
“Charging the Watch”.
Power is low. Charge the watch by placing
it in a location where it is exposed to light.
For details, see “Charging the Watch”.
2. Check the Home City and the daylight saving time (DST) setting.
Use the procedure under “To conﬁgure summer time and other Home City settings” to
conﬁgure your Home City and daylight saving time settings.
Proper time calibration signal reception and World Time settings depend on correct
Home City, time, and date settings in the Timekeeping Mode. Make sure you
conﬁgure these settings correctly.
3. Set the current time.
• To set the time using a time calibration signal
See “To get ready for a receive operation”.
• To set the time manually
See “Conﬁguring Current Time and Date Settings Manually”.
The watch is now ready for use.
For details about the watch’s radio controlled timekeeping feature, see “Radio •
Controlled Atomic Timekeeping”.
Charging the Watch
The face of the watch is a solar cell that generates power from light. The generated
power charges a built-in rechargeable battery, which powers watch operations. The
watch charges whenever it is exposed to light.
Whenever you are not
wearing the watch, leave
it in a location where it is
exposed to light.
Best charging •
performance is achieved
by exposing the watch to
light that is as strong as
When wearing the watch,
make sure that its face is
not blocked from light by the
sleeve of your clothing.
The watch may enter a •
sleep state if its face is
blocked by your sleeve
even only partially.
Leaving the watch in bright light for charging can cause it to become quite hot.
Take care when handling the watch to avoid burn injury. The watch can become
particularly hot when exposed to the following conditions for long periods.
On the dashboard of a car parked in direct sunlight •
Too close to an incandescent lamp •
Under direct sunlight •
Keep the watch in an area normally exposed to bright light when storing it for long •
periods. This helps to ensure that power does not run down.
Storing the watch for long periods in an area where there is no light or wearing it in •
such a way that it is blocked from exposure to light can cause power to run down.
Make sure that the watch is exposed to bright light whenever possible.
You can get an idea of the watch’s power level by
observing the movement of the
Second Hand in the
If the •
Second Hand is moving normally at one-second
intervals, power is at Level 1.
If the •
Second Hand is moving at two-second intervals,
power is at Level 2, which is quite low. Expose the watch
to light as soon as possible so it can charge.

All functions disabled
When power drops to Level 3, all functions will be disabled but the watch will •
continue to keep time internally for about one week. If you recharge the battery
sufﬁciently during this period, the analog hands will move automatically to the
correct setting and regular timekeeping will resume. After one week, all settings
(including timekeeping) will be cleared. Recharging the battery will reset all settings
to their initial factory defaults.
Power Recovery Mode
The watch is designed to go into a power recovery mode that stops hand operation
temporarily whenever power suddenly drops below a certain level due to overuse
of the alarm tone over a short period. Note that all operations are disabled while the
watch is in the power recovery mode.
The hands will move to the correct positions and the watch will resume normal
operation after power recovers (in about 15 minutes). Putting the watch in a location
where it is exposed to light will help power to recover sooner.

Power Saving enters a sleep state automatically whenever the watch is left for a
certain period in an area where it is dark. The table below shows how watch functions
are affected by Power Saving.
There actually are two sleep state levels: “second hand sleep” and “function sleep”. •

Move the watch to a well-lit area or press any button.
Radio Controlled Atomic Timekeeping
This watch receives a time calibration signal and updates its time setting accordingly.
However, when using the watch outside of areas covered by time calibration signals,
you will have to adjust the settings manually as required. See “Conﬁguring Current
Time and Date Settings Manually” for more information.
This section explains how the watch updates its time settings when the city code
selected as the Home City is in Japan, North America, Europe, or China, and is one
that supports time calibration signal reception.
If your Home City code setting is this:
The watch can receive the signal from the
transmitter located here:
LON, PAR, ATH
Anthorn (England), Mainﬂingen (Germany)
Shangqiu City (China)
Fukushima (Japan), Fukuoka/Saga (Japan)
HNL, ANC, LAX, DEN, CHI, NYC
Fort Collins, Colorado (United States)
The areas covered by • HNL and ANC are quite far from the calibration signal
transmitters, so certain conditions may cause reception problems.
When • HNL or HKG is selected as the Home City, only the time and date are
adjusted according to the time calibration signal. You need to switch manually
between standard time and daylight saving time (DST) if required.
See “To conﬁgure summer time and other Home City settings” for information about
how to do this.
