I have a G Shock DW-004 made in 1997. I had this same problem, and I tried everything to change TO military time and back to standard time. I just read the bit to try and was about to do it. I pressed the top left button to get the time to flash, and hit the light button by accident (the one with the big G on it) and VIOLA! It changed to military time. So in my model, anyway, the G light button (under the display on the edge of the watch body) changed the time to military from standard and back again, when the time is flashing.

Good luck!

When setting the time try holding down the button that changes the hours. That will often cause the processor to switch back and forth between military and civilian time. Try reading the manual carefully. It should explain exactly how its done.

Set the seconds to flash like you are setting the time and push the lower button on the side closet to your light button this switches it between military and standard.

I bought the water resist watch from walmart this evening it doesnt have a name brand on the watch but i think its a casio but it didnt come with the instructions on how to use it, the number on the back...


Thank you for contacting FixYa.
  • There should be four buttons: mode, reset, start and light. Find the mode button and press it three times until it is in the set time mode.
  • 2 Find the reset button, which usually is located on the bottom right side of the watch face, and hold it until the time starts blinking.
  • 3 Press the start button to change minutes.
  • 4 Press the reset button again to switch to hours. You will know it worked when the hour starts blinking instead of the minutes.
  • 5 Press the start button to change the hour. The watch can handle two modes: standard and military. As you press start, the hour will change from AM to PM, noted by an "A" or a "P" in the top right. When you get through 24 hours, the watch will change to military time and an "H" will be displayed instead of "A" or "P." Keep pressing start to go through another 24-hour cycle and it will revert back to standard time.
  • 6 Press the reset button to switch to the date, starting with the month, and press start to change it.
  • 7 Press reset one last time to switch from month to the day, and again press the start button to switch days.
  • 8 Press the mode button to finish the changes.

    Time is on military time. want to switch to


    If you have the manual then it should explain how to change from "24" to "12" display.

    If you haven't got the manual then some experimenting my find the solution to your problem. One of the buttons should cycle through the settings menu and in there should be an option to set the display.

    Can't get kids gap watch move from military "24" hr time!


    hit mode three times until TUES flashes and the seconds. Hit reset until the hours flash and hit start to change them. The watch goes from AM hours to PM and then back through AM and when it cycles through the PMs for the second time, they will alternate 12/24 hour time.

    Possibly, you could push the hour-setting button through either the military or standard time setting, i.e., there are actually 48 "hours" you can set your watch to and you need to cycle through enough of them to reach the standard or military hour you want.
