Getting Acquainted
Congratulations upon your selection of this CASIO watch. To get the most out of your
purchase, be sure to carefully read this manual and keep it on hand for later reference
when necessary.
Expose the watch to bright light to charge its battery before using it.
You can use this watch even as its battery is being charged by exposure to bright
light.
· Be sure to read "Battery" of this manual for important information you need to
know when exposing the watch to bright light.
If the display of the watch is blank...
If the SLEEP indicator is on the display, it means that the
display is blank because the watch's Power Saving
function has turned off the display to conserve power.
Power Saving automatically turns off the display and puts
the watch into a sleep state whenever your watch is left for
a certain period where it is dark.
· The initial factory default setting is Power Saving on.
· The watch recovers from the sleep state if you move it to
a well-lit area*, if you press any button, or if you angle
the watch towards your face for reading.
* It can take up to five seconds for the display to turn on.
· See "Power Saving Function" for more information.

Countdown Timer
The countdown timer can be set within a range of one
minute to 60 minutes. An alarm sounds when the
countdown reaches zero. The countdown timer has two
modes: auto-repeat and elapsed time, and a progress
beeper signals the progress of the countdown. All of this
makes the countdown timer a valuable tool for timing the
start of a yacht race.
· All of the operations in this section are performed in the
Countdown Timer Mode, which you enter by pressing
C.

· See "To configure the countdown timer" for information about setting up the timer.
Reset Time
You can set a "reset time," which is a kind of alternate countdown start time you can
recall with the press of a button any time a countdown operation is in progress.
Timer Mode
The countdown timer gives you a choice of two modes: auto-repeat and elapsed time.
Auto-repeat
Auto-repeat mode automatically restarts the countdown from the countdown start time
you set whenever zero is reached.
· Auto-repeat mode is best when timing the starts of match races.
· Even if you start a countdown operation from the reset time, the countdown
automatically restarts from the countdown start time whenever it reaches zero.
· Auto repeat timing repeats up to seven times.
Elapsed Time
When the end of the countdown is reached in the elapsed time mode, the timer
automatically switches to an elapsed time measurement operation.
· The elapsed time mode is best when timing the speed of yachts during ocean races.
· The elapsed time operation is performed in one-second increments up to 99 hours,
59 minutes, 59 seconds.
Countdown Timer Beeper Operations
The watch beeps at various times during a countdown to so you can keep informed
about the countdown status without looking at the display. The following describes the
types of beeper operations the watch performs during a countdown.
Countdown End Beeper
The watch beeps each second of the final 10 seconds before a countdown reaches
zero, and at zero. The first five beeps (seconds 10 through 6) are higher pitched than
the final five beeps (seconds 5 through 1). The watch emits a longer beep to signal
when the countdown reaches zero.
· The countdown end beeper always sounds, regardless of the on/off status of the
progress beeper.
Progress Beeper
The progress beeper actually includes two beepers: a reset time beeper and a reset
period progress beeper.
· The reset time beeper and reset period progress beeper sound only while the
progress beeper is turned on.
Reset Time Beeper
The reset time beeper is similar to the countdown end beeper. When the progress
beeper is turned on, the watch beeps each second of the final 10 seconds before the
countdown reaches the reset time.
Reset Period Progress Beeper
The reset period is the portion of the countdown between the reset time and zero.
When the progress beeper is turned on, the watch emits fours short beeps at the top
of each minute during the reset period, and 30 seconds before the end of the
countdown.

· The Moon phase indicator shows the Moon as viewed at noon from a position in the
Northern Hemisphere looking south. Note that at times the image shown by the
Moon phase indicator may differ from that of the actual Moon in your area.
· The left-right orientation of the Moon phase is reversed when viewing from the
Southern Hemisphere or from a point near the equator.
Moon Phases and Moon Age
The Moon goes through a regular 29.53-day cycle during which it appears to wax and
wane due to how the Sun illuminates the Moon and the relative positioning of the
Earth, Moon, and Sun. The greater the angular distance between the Moon and the
Sun,* the more we see illuminated.
* The angle to the Moon in relation to the direction at which the Sun is visible from the
Earth.
The Moon age indicates the number of days from the New Moon to any particular
phase. It is normally calculated using either noon or midnight as a reference point.
This watch calculates the Moon age based on the angular distance of the Moon at
noon, which can result in an error of
± 1 day. Because of this, the appearance of the
Moon phase indicator may be different from that of the actual Moon.
The watch uses the following formula to calculate Moon age.
Moon Age (days) = 29.53
× (Moon angular distance / 360°)
Tide Graph
The black bar on the watch's tide graph indicates the current tide.
Tidal Movements
Tides are the periodic rise and fall of the water of oceans, seas, bays, and other
bodies of water caused mainly by the gravitational interactions between the Earth,
Moon and Sun. Tides rise and fall about every six hours. The tide graph of this watch
indicates tidal movement based on the Moon's transit over a meridian and the lunitidal
interval. The lunitidal interval differs according to your current location, so you must
specify a lunitidal interval in order to obtain the correct tide graph readings.
High tide
Low tide
Lunitidal Interval
Theoretically, high tide is at the Moon's transit over the meridian and low tide is about
six hours later. Actual high tide occurs somewhat later, due to factors such as
viscosity, friction, and underwater topography. Both the time differential between the
Moon's transit over the meridian until high tide and the time differential between the
Moon's transit over the meridian until low tide are known as the "lunitidal interval."
When setting the lunitidal interval for this watch, use the time differential between the
Moon's transit over the meridian until high tide.
Auto Return Feature
If you leave a screen with flashing digits on the display for two or three minutes without
performing any operation, the watch automatically saves any settings you have made
up to that point and exits the setting screen.
Data and Setting Scrolling
The B and D buttons are used in various modes and setting screens to scroll
through data on the display. In most cases, holding down these buttons during a scroll
operation scrolls through the data at high speed.

Timekeeping
· Resetting the seconds to 00 while the current count is in the range of 30 to 59
causes the minutes to be increased by 1. In the range of 00 to 29, the seconds are
reset to
00 without changing the minutes.
· With the 12-hour format, the P (PM) indicator appears on the display for times in the
range of noon to 11:59 p.m. and no indicator appears for times in the range of
midnight to 11:59 a.m.
· With the 24-hour format, times are displayed in the range of 0:00 to 23:59, without
any indicator.
· The year can be set in the range of 2000 to 2039.
· The watch's built-in full automatic calendar automatically makes allowances for
different month lengths and leap years. Once you set the date, there should be no
reason to change it except when battery power drops to Level 5.
Backlight Precautions
· The electro-luminescent panel that provides illumination loses power after very long
use.
· The illumination provided by the backlight may be hard to see when viewed under
direct sunlight.
· The watch may emit an audible sound whenever the display is illuminated. This is
due to vibration of the EL panel used for illumination, and does not indicate
malfunction.
· The backlight automatically turns off whenever an alarm sounds.
· Frequent use of the backlight runs down the battery.
Auto light switch precautions
· Wearing the watch on the inside of your wrist and movement or vibration of your arm
can cause the auto light switch to activate and illuminate the display. To avoid
running down the battery, turn off the auto light switch whenever engaging in
activities that might cause frequent illumination of the display.
· The backlight may not light if the face of the watch is
more than 15 degrees above or below parallel. Make
sure that the back of your hand is parallel to the ground.
· The backlight turns off in about one second, even if you
keep the watch pointed towards your face.
· Static electricity or magnetic force can interfere with
proper operation of the auto light switch. If the backlight
does not light, try moving the watch back to the starting
position (parallel with the ground) and then tilt it back
toward you again. If this does not work, drop your arm
all the way down so it hangs at your side, and then bring
it back up again.
· Under certain conditions, the backlight may not light until
about one second after you turn the face of the watch
towards you. This does not necessarily indicate
malfunction of the backlight.
