    Setting the Time
  1. G-Shock watches feature a digital display that is set using the function buttons on the outside of the watch face. To set the time, press and hold the the upper left button until the seconds unit blinks on the display. Reset the seconds to "00" by pressing the lower right button.

    Push the lower left button to switch to the hours unit, which will start blinking. Advance the hour by pressing the lower right button. If you hold down the lower right button, it will advance the hour unit at a higher rate of speed. Once the hour is set, press the lower left button to switch to the minutes unit. As with the hours unit, pressing the lower right button will advance the minutes and holding it down will advance the minutes rapidly.

    Once the time is set, press the upper left button to save the setting.
  2. Backlight
  3. The backlight on a G-Shock watch has a manual control and an automatic function that will light the face of the watch whenever the alarm, countdown alarm or hourly alarm ring. To use the manual backlight, press the button on the bottom of timepiece. The light will glow for approximately 2 seconds before going out.

    The automatic function is set by pressing and holding the lower right button. When the automatic function is set, an indicator icon will display on the watch face above the seconds unit. You can turn off the automatic backlight function by pressing and holding the lower right button until the icon disappears.

    Note that backlight causes a drain on the battery, and overuse of the backlight will greatly reduce battery life.
  4. Setting the Alarm
  5. The G-Shock has an alarm that emits an audible tone for approximately 20 seconds when it turns on. To set the alarm, press the lower left button until "AL" displays in the upper left corner of the timepiece. Press and hold the upper left button until the hours unit starts to blink. Adjust the hour by pressing the lower right button. As when setting the time, you can advance the hour at a higher rate of speed by holding down the lower right button.

    Once the hour unit is set, press the lower left button to advance to the minutes. Use the lower right button to set the minutes. Follow these same instructions to set the month and day you want the alarm set.

    When the alarm time and date are entered, press the upper left button to save the setting. Push the lower left button three times to return the G-Shock to "Timekeeping" mode.

I cant set time on watch

is this your watch?
more than likely the stem may be a little stiff to pull out. grab the crown firmly and pull with your fingernail. i don't recommend using a tool. most jewelers have a person who can address this if you can't get it. and they if really only spent a moment to set your watch, they typically won't charge you. if they have to pop the case, it should only be a few bucks. but try a little harder to pull it out yourself...
