IMPORTANT: Before use and for accurate readings the Compass MUST be calibrated. NOTE: Accurate calibration is best done outside or at least away from strong magnetic forces such as computers, refrigerators, TVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s or other large metal objects. To calibrate for MAGNETIC NORTH. - Press MODE/SET to advance to Compass mode. -HOLD MODE/SET in for 2 seconds and OFFSET appears in the display. NOTE: No offset is required when calibrating for Magnetic North. - To continue calibration press MODE/SET. Your watch will instruct you to TURN CW. This means, take the watch off, hold it level, and rotate it SLOWLY in a clockwise direction. It will take one minute of slow clockwise rotation to complete the calibration. Once the calibration is complete DONE will appear in the screen and then the compass direction will appear. - Use the arrow on the top of the watch case to find your direction. - To conserve battery life, after 60 seconds the Compass will revert to TIDE/TIME/ DATE MODE. 31


To calibrate for TRUE NORTH an OFFSET is required. ***See below. Enter your OFFSET by using START/STOP or LAP/RESET then press MODE/SET to continue calibration. Your watch will instruct you to TURN CW. This means, take the watch off, hold it level, and rotate it SLOWLY in a clockwise direction. It will take one minute of slow clockwise rotation to complete the calibration. Once the calibration is complete, firstly DONE will appear in the screen and then the compass direction will appear. - Use the arrow on the top of the watch case to find your direction. - To conserve battery life, after 60 seconds the Compass will revert to TIDE/DATE/ TIME MODE.

To find the offset for your specific location please log on to...or see some common offsets we have listed on below. www.ngdc.noaa.gov/seg/geomag/jsp/struts/calcDeclination NOTE: For accurate compass readings you re-calibrate your compass regularly or after it has come into contact with strong magnetic forces. Eg: An airplane trip or long distance travel in a car or train. ALSO NOTE: After calibration, compass readings should be taken away from large metal objects and appliances. Eg; TV, Fridge, computer, car and etc.

GETTING THE WATCH STARTED Automatic mechanical watches do not require a battery. There are 2 methods of starting your watch. 1. You can wind the watch turning the crown in a clockwise direction approximately 15 times. Make sure you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t over wind it. NOTE : If your Automatic watch has a screw crown you 1st must undo the screw in a counterclockwise direction prior to winding the crown in a clockwise direction. 2. You can also wind your watch by swinging your arm. We recommend you 1st wind the watch to get it started and then by wearing the watch you will continue to give power to the watch. NOTE : * When you take your watch off the power reserve is approx 24 to 36 hours. 41


SCREW CROWN (if applicable) To change the time settings, the screw crown of your watch must first be unscrewed, as follows... 1. Make sure your watch is completely dry; 2. Turn the crown counterclockwise/towards you (fig.1); 3. With crown completely unscrewed (fig.2 ), it can be pulled out to set your watch. 4. After setting, push crown back in fully, then carefully screw the crown in slowly to reseal your watch (fig.3). Never force the screw.

IMPORTANT! For your watch to be properly sealed, the crown must be fully screwed in. Never unscrew the crown when your watch is in water or is wet.

42


SETTING THE TIME Pull the crown out to position B. Turn the hour/minute hands in a clockwise direction to set the time. WARNING! For your watch to be properly sealed, the crown must be fully pushed in. Never pull the crown out when the watch is in water or is wet.

CHARGING YOUR WATCH: Your watch was fully charged at the factory so it should be powered up to wear, but for future charging please read on. Expose the watch to sunlight or strong artificial light and it will start operating immediately with the second hand moving at 2-second intervals. Keep the watch exposed to the light until second hand moves at 1second intervals. CAUTION WHEN CHARGING: When charging, make sure the watch temperature does not exceed 50c. When charging the watch in sunlight, do not leave it on the dashboard of a car as the watch temperature could become extremely high and damage the watch. Do not place your watch too close to a photoflash light, spotlight, incandescent light or other light sources as the watch temperature could become extremely high, causing damage to the watch.

46


GUIDELINE OF CHARGING TIME REQUIRED:

Condition A: for full charge Condition B: for steady operation Condition C: to maintain 1-day usage The values in this column represent the charging times required until the second hand moves constantly at 1-second. Note: Even if the watch is not charged for the time specified above, the second hand may temporarily move at 1-second intervals. But, it will soon resume moving at 2-second intervals. Therefore you must charge the watch for the specified period. When the watch is fully charged, it will keep operating for approximately 6 months.

47


HOW TO SET TIME:

Time setting Unscrew the crown as shown above then pull crown out to the 2nd click position, change the time, push crown back in fully, then carefully screw the crown in slowly to reseal your watch (fig.3). Never force the screw. Advance Setting Technique: When setting the minute hand, first advance it 4 to 5 minutes ahead of the desired time and then turn it back to the exact minute. HOW TO SET DATE:

Date setting Unscrew the crown as shown above then pull crown out to the 1st click position. Turn the crown clockwise to set date, then push crown back 48


to normal position, push crown back in fully, then carefully screw the crown in slowly to reseal your watch (fig.3). Never force the screw. Note: The calendar will not move back by turning the crown counter-clockwise. Note: Do not set the date calendar between 9:00p.m. and 1:00a.m. Otherwise, it may not change properly. It is necessary to adjust the date on the first day after a 30-day month and February. NOTE: Energy depletion forewarning function When the energy stored in the watch is reduced to an extremely low level, the second hand starts moving at 2-second intervals instead of the normal 1-second intervals. In that case, recharge the watch as soon as possible by exposing it to light. Otherwise, the watch may stop operating in about 3 days. To prevent the energy depletion wear the watch so that it is not covered by your clothes. When the watch is not in use, leave it in a bright place as long as possible. * Make sure that the watch temperature does not exceed 50C. Note: Power supply Your watch contains a rechargeable capacitor, so unlike conventional battery-powered watches, battery replacement is not necessary. The solar cell is a clean energy source, having no adverse effect on the natural environment. Caution: Never try to insert a conventional silver oxide battery in your watch as it may explode, generate an intense heat, or even catch fire.

Recommended Usage Table & Testing 100M / 330ft - Suitable for Water Sports. eg. Surfing, Snorkelling, Swimming, Water Skiing. 200M / 660ft - Suitable for Water Sports. eg. Surfing, Snorkelling, Swimming, Water Skiing, Scuba Diving to standard legal depths.
