I am assuming you are reading the battery charge correctly. If so you need a new rechargable battery. Special battery so it is a little expensive. Make sure the person knows it is a "rechargable battery" you want. A regular battery will not work properly or recharge.
The watch will set itself at specific time set times, this is likely to be at 0200 0400 and 0600.
You will however be required to set the time zone, the switch is likely to be on the back.
Atomic Time Synchronisation:
How does it work.
Radio set clocks and watches receive a 60-kilohertz, radio signal from the NIST the official timekeeper for the US and is located in Boulder, Colorado. Ft. Collins. they use atomic clocks and transmits this official time via high frequency short-wave and low frequency AM radio signals, satellite transmission, Internet, and via telephone.

The MTG-900 supports automatic DST which can be activated in the time setting mode. However, the ROM in the MTG-900 dates from before Congress (in their infinite ability to make mistakes) modified the DST schedule, so, instead of switching at the beginning of April and the end of October (as currently specified), it switches at the end of April and the beginning of October (as previously specified).
I do not believe that there is a way to change the DST scheduling or manually turn DST on or off. I've resorted to changing the time zone manually and turning off the DST feature. IOW, I set the timezone to Pacific (LAX) during PST, and, to Mountain (DEN) during PDT.
You most likely don't have the Daylight Savings Time (DST) set to AUTO mode. Just hold the ADJUST button until the time starts blinking. Then hit MODE and DST will show on the top. Hit RECEIVE as needed until you see AUTO in the bottom. Then just hit ADJUST 2 more times and you're set.
These instructions are actually for my Casio G-Shock MTG-900 but I imagine they're very similar for most G-Shock atomic watches.
My victorinox 24731 has gone silent. the alarm sounds if i lift the back flap and push a little black disc in the rhs bottom corner. but it does not work when i set it . it has been working perfectly for the past six months
