home operating instructions contact

Make sure you read these instructions before operating this delicate watch. We have fine-tuned this radio-synchronised watch for the best reception performance. The signal transmitted from the UK 60 kHz.MSF transmitter at Anthorn, Cumbria can be affected under certain situations. We suggest you note the following points:

1. It is strongly recommend you start this watch at night time and let the watch receive the radio signal automatically as the MSF radio signal is stronger during hours of darkness.

2. Always place the watch away from interfering sources such as TV set, computers, electrical appliances etc;

3. Avoid placing the unit on or next to a metal plate;

4. Enclosed area such as airports, basements, tower blocks, or factories are not recommended due to the radio-screening effect caused by metal buildings or steel reinforced concrete

5. Do not start reception while traveling in a moving vehicle, or during thunderstorms

6. Do not keep the watch stored inside a metal box or filing cabinet

Care of Your Watch

1. The correct functioning of this watch may be affected when the ambient temperature is outside the range of 0°C to 50°C.

2. If the watch is left for an extended period of time at temperatures outside the normal range 5°C - 35°C (32°F ~ 122°F), fluid may leak from the battery resulting in a considerable shortening of useful battery life.

3. Do not leave a flat battery in the watch and be sure to replace it with a new one. If battery fluid leaks out, it may damage movement components.

4. Avoid rough use. Avoid dropping the watch.

5. To clean the watch, use a dry soft cloth or a soft cloth moistened in a solution of water and a mild neutral detergent. The strap can be scrubbed with a nailbrush. Never use solvents (such as benzene, spray cleanser).

6. Do not use the buttons underwater or when the watch is wet as moisture may penetrate the watch and damage it.
