This url (below) has a REAL manual for your watch, not the worthless one that comes with the unit.

http://world.casio.com/wat/download/en/manual/

You can type in your 4 digit module number and get a great document that tells you how to operate your unit and some of how it works. (Adobe Acrobat - PDF file)

The solution involves holding down the adjust button until the time zone starts flashing, adjusting with the right 2 buttons and pushing the mode button to get to other options. You then finish by pushing the adjust button again.

Hope that helps. :-)

Should be 4 buttons, 2 on left and 2 on right. Press bottom left 3 times and hour offset digit will be displayed. Press and hold top left until hour offset digit starts to flash. Press either top or bottom right to adjust offset hour to correspond with your time zone. Eastern -5, central -6, mountain -7, pacific -8. These are negative numbers, not positive. Then press top left button once, then press bottom left button to return to time display.

Cant get analog to sync with digital time. I live in SC and I try to set the time for 22:36 but then the analog set it to 12:36 am. :/


First set your local time, date and year and then run the "home positioning" (H-SET) procedure following manual instructions.If no any other problem exists, normally hands will "follow" digital time when watch is set back to time mode.

I want to change time zones on my casio edifice. I can't work it out.


Press the button on the top left-hand side of the watch until the display shows the current hour and the letter "P," "M," "C," or "E" which indicates the current time zone. (Pacific, Mountain, Central or Eastern.) If the time zone is not correct, press the button on the top left-hand side of the watch until the correct time zone is displayed.

On my Casio G-shock GW500A, the time is off. i dont want it on 24time and its an hour ahead


Sounds like you're set for the wrong time zone, and your 12h/24h setting is off.

To change time zone: Hold down the adjust button until it beeps. Your time zone will be flashing at the bottom of the display. Use the Time Memo and/or Receive buttons to change it to the correct time zone. Then... To change to 12H mode: Press adjust again. 12H or 24H will be flashing at the bottom. Use the receive button to cycle the mode. When it's what you want, press adjust once more.

G-shock Wavecepter is 1 hour to fast


(I posted this solution elsewhere but it should help you as well.)

Firstly, the manual that comes with these watches is absolute garbage,which is a stark contrast from the watches themselves. ( I love casiowatches - high value)

The good news is that Casio DID make a good manual for these wavecptor watches. If you go to this url

http://world.casio.com/wat/download/en/manual/

you will be at a spot where you can type in your 4 digit module numberand get a great document that tells you how to operate your unit andsome of how it works. (Adobe Acrobat - PDF file)

You should be able to hold in the "Adjust" button until the time zone starts flashing and push "Time Memo" and/or "Recieve" buttons until you are in the right time zone. Push "Adjust" again and your are done. The Manual above was very useful for me.

Hope that helps. :-)

You have to get in the right time zone, that’s why you are an hour off (and this may also occur if you are in an area that switches between daylight savings time each spring and fall).
Press mode until ZO appears on the watch face.
Press and hold ADJ. Time zone will begin to flash.
Select start/stop or adjust to get to the right time zone P, C, M, E (pacific, eastern, Mountain, central)
If desired , press mode to select DST (daylight savings time) and press start/stop or adjust to turn it on or off.
Press adjust when done.
