Without knowing the module (movement) number I can't be specific. If you click on this link and enter the module number stamped on the back of the watch.
Press search and then download the instructions.

I have a number of these Casio and Citizen watches. This watch does not use GPS for the time keeping. It uses a land based broadcast time signal. There is public information about where the signals come from for your area. The technical breakdown of the time code signal is public access information.

The instruction manual of the watch has the information about when your watch should automatically receive the time signal, and how to set up the watch. Many of the manuals also included a map showing the time signal coverage, and includes the time of day information to show when the signal is strongest.

Make sure the watch settings are for your time zone. This is important. If the main time zone is not for your area it will be trying to receive the signal at the wrong frequency at the wrong time of day. There are areas where the signal may not be able to be received. You can get the mapping for this from the service that the watch has been set to use.

In North America the auto time receive is supposed to take place between midnight 00:00 to 04:00. In the eastern part of North America the reception is poor compared to central and western part of North America. Check the instruction manual for your watch for details.

Below is the spec listing of your watch.

How do I set my watch?


This depends if you want to use the autoreceive mode or not. If you're within an area that you can pick up the signal, it should set itself automatically at 3AM, 4AM and 5AM. You can force it to try and calibrate to the broadcast signal by holding down the receive button while in the "normal" time mode. For best results, put it near a window that faces Colorado (assuming you're in the states) with the top of the watch facing the window.

To turn on or off the autoreceive mode:
From the time mode, hold down the Adjust button until the watch beeps and your time zone is flashing at the bottom. Press the Mode button twice so [ON/OFF] Auto is flashing. Press Receive to toggle the mode, then press Adjust twice to set.

If, for whatever reason, you're unable or don't want to use autoset, to manually set:
From the time mode, hold down the Adjust button until the watch beeps and your time zone is flashing at the bottom. Press the Adjust button again and 12H/24H will be flashing at the bottom. Press mode again and seconds will be flashing. Mode once more and the hours will be flashing. Use Time Memo/Receive to set it to what you want. Press mode again and minutes flash. Again, use Time Memo/Receive to set it to what you want. Repeat for year, month & day. Press Adjust to finish chaning the time.

G-Shock Atomic Solar watch - ERR in atomic time keeping


The watch will set itself at specific time set times, this is likely to be at 0200 0400 and 0600.
You will however be required to set the time zone, the switch is likely to be on the back.
INFO:
Atomic Time Synchronisation:
How does it work.
SHORT VERSION:
Radio set clocks and watches receive a 60-kilohertz, radio signal from the NIST the official timekeeper for the US and is located in Boulder, Colorado. Ft. Collins. they use atomic clocks and transmits this official time via high frequency short-wave and low frequency AM radio signals, satellite transmission, Internet, and via telephone.

My Casio Gw-300 is not receiving the satelite signal to receive daylight savings time. The display is not showing the satelite dish or any bars in the receiving indicator


I'm having the same problem. It's been working fine for about 4 years and now there are no bars or the picture of the satellite. There is a little "C" or "[" next to where it should be though. Maybe that is some sort of error message? I left it in my window for three days straight to get full days of sunlight and the battery is full but still no signal. Did something happen to the atomic signal carriers? Or is my watch finally dead?

Can't set the time on my casio wrist watch


Press button A (top left) and hold for two seconds. The watch should then receive a time signal - you shouldn't have to set the time on it at all.

I purchased a Nat. Geo. Dakota watch in past fall..It was impossible to set. Paid a watch shop to set it....now it won't change to daylight savings time...nor will it change time zones when I travel....


When changing time zones, your watch must be manually set for the new time zone you will be entering. This watch is not designed to adjust for new time zones automatically. Instructions for changing time zones can be changed using the directions found on pages 2-4 in your instruction manual. When changing to and from DST, your watch should automatically adjust for this difference with the next 24 hours after the change. If your watch has not adjusted, you may be in an area that is not receiving signal. Check if your watch has received signal by using the directions found on page 1 of your instruction manual. If your watch has received signal in the past and no longer is receiving signal, your watch may need to be serviced or exchanged. Please contact Dakota Watch Company Customer Service by email at customerservice@dakotawatch.com, or by phone at 1-888-459-0404.

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.
