    Confused Is there a website with all the world time zones for G-Shocks so I can set them easier?

    I am so tired of looking at the times and trying to figure out what is what.

    I just want to look at the abbreviations to make it easier.
    The MTG is retired and the 5600 too. Right now, the only working G-Shocks that I use and enjoy are the Riseman GW9200-1 and the GW6900-1

    If I can own a Rolex Submariner I would. I know they are tough too, their homages are tough. Trust me.

    G-Shock MTG930DA-8V, G-Shock GW-5600J-1. G-Shock Riseman GW9200-1, G-Shock GW6900-1

    While we are on the subject... has anyone noticed that the City Codes on some G's are incorrect? Meaning, you set it to the correct (or closest) city and it's off by an hour or so?

    This is actually something that upsets me as I have to set my watch to a different city in order to get it to display the correct time.

    My guess is that "times have changed" and the tables that the watches get their data off is obsolete. Is this true?

    Is there a way to "update" the module with the correct info?

    Yes. I just had that problem while updating my watches for Daylight Savings Time. You can get it to match-up... just takes some tinkering. Make sure that the DST is off for the time zone you are setting to and that the City Code Table is correct on your watch (-4.0, -5.0, etc.). I had a bit of trouble with the first watch until I figured it all out.

    For example, I set-up my G7900 like this: I made sure that the DST was off for regular timekeeping. Then I made sure that the DST was off for the Time Zone the watch was set to. Then I made sure that the City Code was correct (-5.0 in my case). While I was at it, I turned off the DST for all of the Time Zones. Everything matches up fine now.

    I don't think I toyed with the DST settings while attempting to get this done. Thanks for that! Look for this thread to resurface if it doesn't work on my next trip. :)
