When the watch is unable to display the precise time or date even if it successfully receives a radio signal, or when the stopwatch hands do not stop at the 0-position even after resetting the stopwatch, the preliminary position may be misaligned.
The possible causes of misalignment of preliminary position are as follows:
In the case of having a strong impact:
the misalignment may occur when dropping or hitting the watch.
In the case of a magnetic influence:
the misalignment may occur when bringing the watch close to an object which generates magnetism.
The condition “the preliminary position of hand is misaligned” means that compared to a health meter, “the zero position of a meter is misaligned, causing a correct weight not to be displayed.”
Automatic hand position adjustment function (Adjustment of preliminary positions of hour, minute and seconds hands)
The hour, minute, and seconds hands have an “automatic hand position adjustment function,” which automatically corrects an incorrect preliminary position. Automatic Hand Position Adjustment Function activates once a minute for the small seconds hand and at 12:00 both for the AM and PM for the hour and minute hands.
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 deviations which may occur during the manufacturing process.
The preliminary position of the hour and minute hands can also be manually adjusted.
Set the preliminary position for the date, and the hour and minute hands.
Setting the Preliminary Position of the Date/Stopwatch Hands
Since the preliminary position of the date and stopwatch hands is not automatically adjusted, it must be adjusted manually.
