How to set your Global Atomic G-Force digital watch

This watch says "Strong Ideas" on the back instead of a 4 digit number.

Press LIGHT briefly and your LCD will be back lit for 5 seconds.

Press MODE to cycle through normal, alarm, dual time, and stopwatch display mode.

Hold MODE for 3 seconds to enable the radio to receive time signals. Once RC is activated, the watch will search for time signal automatically every day.
Hold LIGHT for 8 seconds to disable the RC function.
Press MODE, SET, and ADJUST simultaneously to reset the watch.

Press ADJUST while in normal mode to toggle year/time display.
Press SET while in year display to alternate Month-Day or Day-Month.

Hold SET for 2 seconds while in normal mode to cycle through world atomic radios (US/GB/DE/JP) push ADJUST to change, and SET to continue. Next the language will flash (GB/FR/DE/ES/IT). Next is DST on/off. Next, in order are hour, minute, second, year, month, day, and 12/24 Hr format.
(US only) Press SET to display timezone. The default is PA, use the ADJUST button to cycle through MO, CE, or EA as desired.

Press SET while in alarm mode to toggle alarm on/off.
Hold SET for 2 seconds while in alarm mode to change the hour and minute with the ADJUST button.

Press SET for 2 seconds while in dual time mode and ADJUST +/- 23 hours from normal time.

Press MODE to exit most settings.

Press ADJUST in stopwatch mode to start/stop the timer accumulatively.
Press SET to reset stopwatch to zero, or split measurements if timer is running.

Change the battery with a new CR2025 to prevent damage that low or dead batteries can cause by leaking.
Do not use solvents to clean the watch, use only a dry or water moistened cloth.
Do not use buttons when the watch is wet. Water may penetrate the watch and cause damage to it.

Eve mon crois watch 9441-FS instruktionbook


Watch controls (eve mon crois) TL= top left button TR= top right button BL= bottom left button BR= bottom right button TL= toggle light TR= view date BR= view alarm time BL= toggle options 1 press --> stopwatch 2 press --> change alarm time 3 press --> change digital time 4 press --> return to regular view (When on option) Stopwatch: TR= stop/start stopwatch BR= reset stopwatch time BL= next option Change alarm time: TR= +1 to selected (flashing) unit BR= change selected (flashing) unit BL= next option Change digital time: TR= +1 to selected (flashing) unit BR= change selected (flashing) unit BL= next option Normal view: (controls shown at top) In normal view when: TR is held down --> BR= toggle alarm on/off TL is held down --> BL= toggle through days BR is held down --> TR= toggle alarm on/off (for accurate digital time go to the option of change digital time and set it to the next minute from when you are make sure that the the counting seconds are flashing. When the next minute comes press TR this will reset the seconds to '00' without changing the minute and you will now be accurate to the clock you used by less than a second) I got this info through a long time of just experimenting with the buttons, still working on finding a way of changing the date but for now this should be enough to get you by with the watch. Hope this helps somebody :)

TW360 GLOBAL ATOMIC G-Force watch. The back of the watch says it's a STRONG IDEAS brand. I had a new battery installed and the Jeweler couldn't re-set the watch.


The solution provided does NOT solve the specific issue for this watch not having a 4 digit number on it's back. Therefore, the number of solutions to this problem is 0. Where is the thumbs down icon?

need manual for g-force watch global atomic


Hi, Since you didn't specify the model or module number of the watch, try this link:
http://world.casio.com/wat/download/en/manual/

Take the four-digit module number from the back of the watch, enter it, and download a PDF of your watch setting-instructions.
I hope this helps you. Thanks, Bill

Changing the time on an LCD Digital Watch


Press mode continuously for about 2-3 seconds then release
Press mode again so that the seconds are flashing
Press ADJ + ST/STP at the same time
Adjust what you need to adjust and move between minutes and seconds by repeating the ADJ + ST/STP
Good luck!
