How to Set the Time on a Casio G-Shock Watch

Setting the time or changing the time on your Casio G-Shock watch can be difficult if you don’t have the user manual and if you are not technically inclined. Not all people are good with electronics and there is no shame in asking for help. There are also different ways to set the time on your G-Shock depending on which Casio G-Shock watch that you own.

Usually you click on the set button then move around the menus with the other buttons. These are too vague of instructions to be of use, however.

Since there is no single way to set a Casio G-Shock watch it’s best that you visit the technical support page for your particular watch. You can probably find your watch user manual and help guides at this link. <—copy/paste this link

Visit that website and look up your watch. If you can’t find your watch you can always call Casio G-Shock tech support on the telephone using the following information.
