(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. :-)

How do you set the time to dst.


From the main time display, hold down the adjust button until it beeps and your time zone is flashing on the bottom of the display. Then press the mode button once. [AUTO/ON/OFF] DST will be flashing on the bottom. Use the Time Memo and/or Receive buttons to cycle the mode. When it's what you want, press adjust twice.

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.

DST on MTG900


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.

Cannot change from 24 hour to 12 hour also did not change to daylight savings time


To change from 24 hour to 12 hour, you hold down the "Mode" button until it switches from 24 hour to 12 hour or vice versa. To change the time zone, you hold down the "Set" button until the time zone that you set it in flashes (like "LAX" on my watch). Then you press the "Receive/Start/Stop" button to choose the specified time zone you want. To set for daylight savings time ("DST" on the watch), after holding the "Set" button and having the time zone flash, you could press the "Mode" button. It will give you a few options for the daylight savings time (Auto, On, or Off). I chose the "On" option, which immediately changed for daylight savings time. If you manually want to change the time, you could hold down the "Set" button and keep pressing the "Mode" button until the time starts flashing on your watch, then pressing the "Receive/Start/Stop" button until you change it to the time that you want. You could also set the watch to beep or chime after pressing the set button if you wanted to know that piece. You hold down the "Set" button when you are done to get it to stop flashing. These instructions worked for my Timex T5G341 Universal Radio Control Watch. I hope this helps.

Echo drive skyhawk,My watch's time zone is always one hour behind


You posted this in January, which is not during daylight savings time. The SMT setting doesn't turn on automatic DST switching for a particular timezone; rather, it is a manual override to adjust timezones to DST when it is actually active. There is no automatic DST adjustment for this watch (according to their FAQ). Turn SMT to OF for all timezones during winter months, and ON for applicable timezones during SuMmer Time (SMT).

My G-shock wavecepter is 1 hour fast. I can't seem to get it to set to the proper time. I live in Oregon on in the Pacific Time zone. My watch is set to LAX. DLS is off and when I tried it on it jump to 2...


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. :-)

Time zone


You don't need to set the watch back an hour.  You just need to turn off the automatic DST adjustment.
Hold ADJUST for several seconds.  Then, when DEN starts flashing (or whatever timezone you are set to), hit MODE The display will change to DST flashing at the top and on or auto flashing at the bottom. Click TIME/MEMO or RECEIVE to change on->auto->off.  Once off is flashing at the bottom, hit ADJUST twice and you will be out of DST mode and everything should be fine.

How do you set the time on a casio g shock watch????????


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.

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.
