Go to the Casio web site. Download the manual for the watch. Go to the section called "To Adjust the Analog Time." The answer is there, step by step.

    The information rweissberg gave back in 2009 still rings true today! Certain times at my work I handle an overhead hoist that has some very strong magnets attached to it. This particular day I spent a good 8 hrs moving things with this magnet hoist and when I checked my watch near lunch time the analog hands on my Ana-Digital 100 (4765) was showing 5 min. behind the digital time!! I checked the online manual, tried the fix and my indestructable g-shock is rockin' again!!

Casio wave ceptor hands running 8 minutes slow. Digital clock showing correct time. Hands 8 minutes slow even if I change time manually.


You may need to recalibrate the hands. Sometimes the hands are out of sync with timekeeping. Go to the Casio website, download the manual for your model, and follow instructions for resetting the position of the hands (might be referred to as zeroing or recalibaration).

I have a Casio Wave Captor 4757 WVQ-142E and after the change in time this fall I can't seem to set the time correctly. I am in Paris, so GMT +1, however it is 10:30 and my watch reads 3:03. I have reset...


I sympathize, it took me ages to work this out - I had the same problem having had the battery replaced in my watch which only lasted 18 months...the irony was that my previous watch was still working & set to the correct, time date etc!

The following instructions are for the Casio Wave Ceptor 4757 WVQ-142E, the official Casio instructions are available at the following:

http://www2.casio.co.jp/manual_pdf/wat/en/pdf_search.php?MODULE=4757

For the extra information Casio neglect to tell you in the manual, read the following:

First, the watch needs resetting. To do this you need a watchmaker's screwdriver, remove the back (4 screws - obviously, you do this at your own risk), remove the thin plastic cover to reveal the battery.

On my watch on the battery cover it says to reset the watch, get a pair of tweezers & connect the battery back to the negative (marked -) plate for about 2 seconds, thus forming a circuit.

The watch stops, the screen goes blank for about 30 seconds, replace the plastic cover , back & screws.

Wait until the watch has picked up the correct time signal, the digital part will show the correct local time, the analogue screen won't at this stage.

Set the watch to the desired time zone that you require or HS (Home Setting).

Then press button "C" (bottom left) to scroll through until "HS" is displayed on the screen, then press button B (top right) for about 5 seconds until it flashes "OO" in the screen, then press the A (top left) button down & to reset the analogue time (so all 3 hands are pointing up) to 12 O'clock, it has to be set to 12 so the watch will recalibrate itself, if it is not set to 12 O'clock, it won't work! - sadly Casio don't tell you this bit in the manual....& of course this is really obvious to us mere mortals!

Now that you have aching hands & repetitive strain injury, press the B button (top left) to exit the (watch) hand setting mode & the watch will now wind the hands by itself to the correct analogue time, (or in theory it will, it took three attempts to set my watch).

Yes, for the record Mr Casio, if you hand a watch to someone & tell them to set it to the correct time, they will set it to the current local time (assuming that it is not 12 O'clock) & as opposed to 12 O'clock by default!

This is not rocket science, if your company is able to make & market a radio controlled watch which is in theory accurate to one second in a million years because it is controlled by the Rugby atomic clock, you'd think that the instruction department could write some decent instructions!

Hopefully this solved the problem!

Oh, one additional thing about my CASIO 'WAVE CEPTOR' watch: After I got (finally) the manual and set up the watch, it set the DIGITAL display to the correct time & date, but the ANALOG display re-set...


You can align the analogue time with the digital time by pressing the mode button until you reach the hand setting position (HS) and then press one of the right hand buttons to change the hand position.

Will the analog (hands) stop working on a Wave Ceptor when the battery is low/dead? Digital feature still works fine....watch about 4 years old


Yes, definitely analogue part will stop, because it takes more power to move gears and hands. Replace battery and you'll be OK. Rate me, plz.

How do I set the analogue hands so hat they tell


Push the lower left mode button (C) until the bottom line of the LCD is "HS". Then press either to top right (B) or bottom right (D) buttons to change the position of the hands. The mode button selection is shown on page 1 of the manual. Changing the hands is described in the Analog Timekeeping section on page 4 of the manual. The manual is currently available here: http://ftp.casio.co.jp/pub/world_manual/wat/en/qw2735.pdf
