My new casio wave ceptor watch IS receiving atomic signal but is exactly one minute fast from confirmed internet time. All hand and "home" calibrations perfect, just one minute fast.

My internet time differs from atomic clock time by two minutes. Guess maybe that's normal tolerance.

Cannot get time to set correctly. Hands off ~45min Wave Ceptor atomic watch set on home city CHI. Time is off an hr on screen and hands are off about 45min. Cannot get it set correctly.

You should be able to set your "home"city to give you the correct time but if it is an hour out, then it may be giving DST when it shouldn't (or conversely not giving DST when it should).

You can also se the hand to agree with the digital clock. The instructions are too long to write here but if you haven't go the instructions, you can get them by going to the Casio web site.

Enter "", select "support", then watches, accept the termd snd then select "watch manual archive".

Read the required number off the back of your watch and enter it into the search box. Click on "search" to obtain your instructions.

The digital display shows the correct time but the hands do not.

hi there when you replace batteries in wave ceptors all hands have to be set to the home position (straight up at 12 oclock), as the instructions vary wildly from watch to watch you will have to download the manual from you will need to put in the module number (found on the back plate of the watch), this will be in PDF format, you can download adobe reader for free from to read PDF files. good luck

Casio Wave Captor Watch wont set to correct time.

You need to manually adjust or set the hands to the home position as they are not where the watch thinks they should be. This can happen when you bring your watch close to a strong magnetic field. Look in the manual to do this. Afterwards your watch should set to the correct time.
