If you do not plan to use your watch for a long time, thoroughly wipe it free of all dirt, sweat, and moisture, and store it in a cool, dry place.

Remember that you wear your watch next to your skin, just like a piece of clothing. To ensure your watch performs at the level for which it is designed, keep it clean by frequently wiping with a soft cloth to keep your watch and band free of dirt, sweat, water and other foreign matter.

• Whenever your watch is exposed to sea water or mud, rinse it off with clean fresh water.

• For a metal band or a resin band with metal parts, use a soft toothbrush or similar tool to scrub the band with a weak solution of water and a mild neutral detergent, or with soapy water. Next, rinse with water to remove all remaining detergent and then wipe dry with a soft absorbent cloth. When washing the band, wrap the watch case with kitchen plastic wrap so it does not come into contact with the detergent or soap.

• For a resin band, wash with water and then wipe dry with a soft cloth. Note that sometimes a smudge like pattern may appear on the surface of a resin band. This will not have any effect on your skin or clothing. Wipe with a cloth to remove the smudge pattern.

• Clean water and sweat from a leather band by wiping with a soft cloth.

• Not operating a watch crown, buttons, or rotary bezel could lead to later problems with their operation. Periodically rotate the crown and rotary bezel, and press buttons to maintain proper operation.

• Leave battery replacement up to your original retailer or authorized CASIO service center.

• Have the batteries replaced only with the type specified in the User’s Guide. Use of a different battery type can cause malfunction.

• When replacing the batteries, also request a check for proper water resistance.

• Ornamental resin components may become worn, cracked, or bent over time when subjected to normal daily use. Note that if cracking or any other abnormality indicating possible damage is noticed in a watch submitted for battery replacement, your watch will be returned with an explanation of the abnormality, without the requested servicing being performed.

• Do not use your watch for scuba diving or other types of diving that requires air tanks.
• Watches that do not have WATER RESIST or WATER RESISTANT marked on the back cover are not protected against the effects of sweat. Avoid using such a watch under conditions where it will be exposed to large amounts of sweat or moisture, or to direct splashing with water.
• Even if a watch is water resistant, note the usage precautions described below. Such types of use reduce water resistance performance and can cause fogging of the glass.
– Do not operate the crown or buttons while your watch is submersed in water or wet.
– Avoid wearing your watch while in the bath.
– Do not wear your watch while in a heated swimming pool, sauna, or any other high temperature/high humidity environment.
– Do not wear your watch while washing your hands or face, while doing housework, or while performing any other task that involves soaps or detergents.
• After submersion in seawater, use plain water to rinse all salt and dirt from your watch.
• To maintain water resistance, have the gaskets of your watch replaced periodically (about once every two or three years).
• A trained technician will inspect your watch for proper water resistance whenever you have its battery replaced. Battery replacement requires the use of special tools. Always request battery replacement from your original retailer or from an authorized CASIO service center.
• Some water-resistant watches come with fashionable leather bands. Avoid swimming, washing, or any other activity that causes direct exposure of a leather band to water.
• Your water-resistant watch has been tested in accordance with International Organization for Standardization regulations.
