Your watch employs an amazingly luminous material called BLACKOUT SUPERLUMINOUS. This technology allows you to read the time at night, without having to push any buttons. The completely non-radioactive BLACKOUT SUPERLUMINOUS coating functions by charging from ambient light; the britghter the light, the faster and more powerful the "charge." When new, we recommend you set it in direct sunlight for 30 minutes to "charge" it up for maximum effect, but normal room lighting will generally "charge" your watch enough to be legible for several hours.
Your watch is fitted with an anti-glare sapphire cyrstal. Please note that while sapphire glass is almost impossible to scratch, an impact with ah ard object can crack or shatter it. If this happens, retunr the watch to one of our Service Centers and the crystal can be replaced for a moderate.
