Points to be checked
Reception was successful (the reception result is displayed as “Y”), but time has gained or lost.
The set time difference (including DST (daylight saving time or “summer time”)) may differ.
When the time difference setting differs from the current location, set the time difference through one of these operations.
When in a location with good reception How to adjust the time zone
When in a location with no reception How to perform manual time difference setting (selection)
Automatic time adjustment may not get activated for a few days.
Automatic time adjustment
The automatic time adjustment function is unlikely to be activated due to low energy stored in the watch or depending on the environment.
To immediately adjust the time, refer to How to adjust the time zone.
When the time and date are not correct even after signal reception was successful, the standard position may be incorrect.
The preliminary position is misaligned due to the following reasons.
Strong impact such as dropping or hitting
Things around you which generate magnetism
Examples of common magnetic products that may affect watches
When comparing the state of “Misaligned Preliminary Hand Position” to that of a weight scale, it is like “a scale which is unable to display the correct weight because its needle is not set to the zero position before weighing.”
Setting the standard position of the hour, minute, and seconds hands (automatic hand position alignment function)
The “automatic hand position alignment function” automatically adjusts the hour, minute, and seconds hands when the standard positions are incorrect.
The automatic hand position alignment function acts once per 12 hours for the hour hand (at noon and midnight), once per hour for the minute hand, and once per minute for the seconds hand.
This function works when the preliminary hand position is misaligned due to external factors such as strong impact or magnetic influence.
It does not work to adjust accuracy of the watch or slight misalignment which may occur during the manufacturing process.
The standard positions of the hour and minute hands can be adjusted manually.

Setting of the standard position of the date
As the standard position of the date is not adjusted automatically, it must be set manually.
