Match the hands to the digital time

Is it a wave scepter? Place it in the window facing Fort collins, with the 12 pointing to Fort collins. Keep it away from metal which interferes with radio signal. Put it in place in the window before going to bed at night. When it picks up the signal the hands spin to match corrected digital time.

Use internet net to pull up Casio manual, which is way easier to read than the tiny booklet.

How do I receive signal from ft Collins

The Casio wave scepter watches often got put on sale because the booklet was thick and the sales staff inside their steel shell stores could never prove how it worked. I bought 3 from Sears at a low price.
Ok, I am in northern ontario, and I set the watch around a non metal tube or box - like a paper towel roll or small pop bottle and set it on a south or west facing window ledge. Works best on a top floor. Position the watch so the 12 is pointing to Fort collins.
My casio at this distance doesn't pick up the radio signal until sometime between midnight and 6 am. It has a setting that reveals if it did sync and reset the time, and will show at what time it sync'ed.
casio watch manuals are available online. As long as you have set what time zone you are in, it will set the time.

Will not receive signal

If you are in the US or Canada the signal is coming from Fort-Collins, Colorado. If you are too far or there are atmospheric perturbations along the way, at the times the watch is in automatic receive , the watch may not receive a strong enough signal to synchronize itself with the atomic clock signal. The watch is not always able to do so.
Read the manual where it is suggested that you put the watch on a window sill, the dial facing outward with 12 at the bottom. Do not move the watch when it is trying to receive a signal. If you have a signal strength meter, orient the watch so that the signal is as high as possible.

I have Casio Module 4717,Can this Watch be use in INDIA

Hi, Once radio-controlled watches have been set to the relevant time zone, they always display the exact local time. All CASIO radio watches receive signals almost anywhere in Europe. Some models even receive signals in North America, parts of Canada and Mexico (the radio tower in Fort Collins sends signals for a radius of up to 3,200 km) and even in Japan or China. Here you can learn about the technology that makes it possible, and about how your watch picks up the time. To make sure if you are in the radius pls visit to URL below..

Try the manual : -
although, unless you're in North America, you probably won't get the signal the watch needs to synchronise.

Will not recieve atomic time.My other casio atomic

This watch will set it's self in a 24 hour time frame. You need only set the time zone your in.

If it does not correct it's self change location in your house. It receives the signal at 0200 0400 and 0600 for the correction.

The transmitter is located in Fort Collins, Colorado. this station transmits the time codes2_bing.gif and is best received at night.

Hope this tip helps


I have several of the both watches and clocks and love them.

Casio 2688 Wave Ceptor - No Display

On the solar charge watches, they use a chargeable Lithium battery. It is NOT an off the shelf regular battery! It is best to send the watch to the factory service rep in your area for a battery change.

In many of these models the battery is using solder contacts to the circuit board. The person changing the battery will require the original spec battery, and be equiped to do surface type soldering.

When working on this watch, the factory service will change the seals and do a pressure water resistance test. The regular corner watch service store is not equiped to do this type of testing.

Normaly, the battery in solar watches should last more than 5 years. Some are going past 10 years!
