Press the bottom left "Mode" button until you reach the Timekeeping mode to set illumination duration.

Hold down the button on the top left hand side of the watch until the seconds begin to flash.

Press the button on the bottom left to set the light to shine for one, two or three seconds.

Press the top left hand button to return the watch to normal functioning.


  • Using the illuminator often will drain the battery more quickly.
