    When I use the app, it will sync the time on my cell phone, so I don’t need to worry about the time zone or DST settings on the watch. I hope this helps, let us know if it worked.

    I tried setting the time zone to Tokyo and in that time zone pressing "B" shows whether or not the watch received a signal.

    So it looks like if the watch is programmed to only look for a signal if it's in a time zone where it expects a signal.

    Maybe I can set the watch to Tokyo time zone, manually trigger it to synch, then change the time zone back. At that point though it might be easier to just set the time manually.
    I've read somewhere some people do receive signals in your country with ideal atmospheric conditions. The wavelength (kilometer long) of the signal is such that the signal bounces off the ionosphere and terrain. Those conditions can change with weather and solar activity. You might keep trying, but everything you said about having the watch set to a time zone that is apart of Multiband 6 is correct. One of the other posters is correct, you must enable atomic updates, so make sure it's on. I have a set of JDM Casio's that synch fine with JJY simulator not matter the time setting (module 3721 +others), and a few that must be set to Tokyo time (module 3731). So the procedure can be bit of a pain: 1. Set your iPhone to Tokyo time, 2. Set your watch to Tokyo time. Fire up JJY simulator and manually synch. Switch everything to local time when done. A few watches are a pain, so I've learned the quick way to synch the second hand and just do that once a month or so to internet time. I have two out of a dozen or so that wont synch, but don't know their service history, so can't knock 'em. Casio manuals are generally very good, however, I've a couple modules where the zeroing of the seconds is NOT made clear or obvious, when in fact it might be the most used corrective setting once the watch is set up. This can be quite frustrating! Hang in there! Oh yea, Atomic updates can only be accomplished in time keeping mode (or sometimes world time mode). Hope that helps.

    Thanks, and thanks to the others that have posted. Yep, it helps.

    I just used JJY and got the watch to sync manually. Manual receive doesn't work in my time zone, I have to change it to another time zone such as Tokyo. Bit of a bummer, I'd love to keep it in my time zone and be able to use manual receive to set the time. As it stands I have to change the time zone on my phone to match the watch in order to have the right time.

    That's all good though, my main concern was making sure the watch was functioning as designed, and looks like it is.

    Something that surprised me though was the way the bracelet is attached. Drilled lugs with an integrated bracelet is an unusual choice, as is having the bracelet being attached to the case with pin and collar rather spring bar.

    This watch has some quirks but I'm loving it so far. Coming from mostly wearing autos it's so refreshing being able to just pick this up and put it on.

    Yeah, it kind of sucks that you need to have the watch in the time zone specific to the radio wave, although it makes sense to save on battery.

    Try this as an alternative to to the JJY App

    Great news, yes, it may be easier to learn to zero the seconds in time setting mode. The majority of my Casio watches drift like 6 to 12 seconds a month. Not as gratifying as the exact time certainly, but it is what it is.

    Is a bracelet of a DLC coated watch like ocw-s5000e a bit darker and less naked steel like in colour/tint?
    I have OCW-T750 and I would like a watch and a bracelet which is a bit darker but from photos and videos on the web it is very hard to say.

    Re: The Official Casio Oceanus Thread

    Have you maybe another watch without a DLC treatment that you could make a photo of with the two sitting side by side on a white sheet of paper?
    Merci d'avance!
