    Incorrect World Time: What did I do wrong

    Hello guys,

    Both of my 6 Band G-Shock seems to have wrong world time which puzzle me a bit
    It is currently 12:09am in NYC. Both watches set the home time NYC, main world time is set on TYO.
    DTS set on AUTO.

    On world time menu
    TYO: 14:09

    I check online Tokyo Time is 13:09

    What did I set it wrong?

    Maybe you set TYO to DST? Japan doesn't use DST.

    Cheers, Sedi

    Nope. If I press and hold button A, DST icon will show up. Instead of 1 hr fast, TYO time will be 2 hr fast with DST.
    I just found out Hong-kong and Bangkok are incorrect with 1 hr fast.

    No one has the same issue?

    To update. If I switch Home Time setting to TYO and correct time and click off. Switch to World Time, then NYC, LAX, CHI, MEX and other north America cities will show 1 hr behind.
    European countries seems to be accurate.

    Anyone in USA has the same Band 6 world time issue with TYO, HKG and BKK?
    The World Clock

    it is strictly Band 6. My band 5 world time appear to be correct.

    No problem here. My Multiband 6 watches all read the correct times for TYO, HKG and BKK.

    Is UTC correct on your watch? If not, then you either have your home time set incorrectly or DST set incorrectly.

    Turn Out....I think I find out what is exactly wrong.

    It is because I set my DST to AUTO and I live in NYC that doesn't have the luxury to receive wave signal to correct time.
    After manually changed DST setting to ON, the world time hours are corrected.
