    My watch has not reset with the daylight savings change. When I hit the receive button it reads 10/31 with a time of day. I am leaving my watch outside today to see if this helps.

I had the same problem following recent daylight savings time (DST) change. The watch has three DST mode settings (ON, OFF, and AUTO). You get to the setting mode by pressing and holding the "adjust' button until the city time zone indicator starts to flash. Then press the "mode" button. This should give you the DST setting. Now press the "receive" button to cycle through the ON, OFF, and AUTO modes for DST. I set it for AUTO. I then existed the setting mode by pressing "adjust" again.

Now you can initiate a manual update of the time by pressing and holding the receive button. Put your watch by a window and make sure the signal strength indication is showing level 4 (full picture of satellite dish on my version). Give it a few minutes to down load new time.

After doing this the watch corrected itself and now shows correct time. Other wise I assume you could set the DST function to ON or OFF as well depending on whether you need to add or subtract the hour from the time.

The recessed button where it says RECEIVE (4 oclock position).  Push it and you will see the last "GET TIME", i.e., the last time the watch synched with Ft Collins atomic clock via satellite.  It should have todays date, usually ~ 3 AM or something.
If not, then your watch is having trouble synching with the satellite.  I am having this problem now.  Today is Nov 5.  My last GET TIME is Oct 30.  Which means I have non adjusted for Daylight Savings time TIME on my watch.  I am an hour off.  Not sure why mine won't synch up.

It sounds like your watch is set to the wrong time zone. If you haven't got instructions, you can get them from their web site.

Daylight savings time change casio atomic watch has not changed is there a way to change it manually


An example for G-shock: I searched for casio g-shock manual and got this: http://world.casio.com/wat/download/en/manual/

You enter model from back of watch and it gives you a searchable PDF manual.

For mine, model 2638 (and likely most G-shocks), you press and hold the upper left (Adjust) button until the City Code flashes. You then press the lower left (Mode) to enter DST mode then press the lower right (Receive) as it cycles through On, Off and Auto.
On moves 1 hour forward, Off moves 1 hour back. After you select, you press the upper left button (Adjust) twice and it's set. I would not pick Auto anymore as my watch is still set to the original DST days which were changed in the US years ago and no longer match, I don't believe the DST days used can be changed by the user and I don't believe Auto receive adjusts for DST.

Lost the manual. Son reset watch. I've reset the


go to www.casio.co.uk go to support(methinks??) click on watches and put in the model number (the one you posted) and download the PDF manual relating to your watch (you will need adobe reader free download to read PDFs), this will be the full manual, once you figure it out DST will have to be on, as its summertime of course. ( i bought a wave ceptor for a fiver because the guy who had it didnt know how to recalibrate it after a battery change), a quick gander at the online manual put it right, there shouldnt be a problem setting it up again, good luck

How to set time Casio W-89H two button watch


Actually, the watch has 3 buttons -- "Light" being the 3rd one. Press Mode until a number in the time mode begins flashing. Then press the Light button to get it to the hour indicator. Use the 12-24 Hr button to set it to the current hour. Then press the Light button again to get it to the minutes section. Again, use the 12-24 Hr. Button to set it to the next minute coming up in the current time. Then push the Light button again. This will bring up the seconds indicator. At the precise time the minute you set before begins, hit the 12-24 Hr. button, and the indicator goes back to zero and begins ticing away. Then hit the Mode button again until the watch is in the current time mode. Hope this helps. I use Internet time to set a precise time.

Have lost the instructions


http://www.citizenwatch.jp/support/pdf/coa/c300.pdf

This is the link from Citizen watches to the instruction manual for this watch. They have all the manuals for there watches available, you only need to find the movement caliber on the caseback. For the Blue Angels watch the movement is the C300, hope that helps.
