    Will this watch be in UK date or US style date?

    I'm wanting to buy this product:
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Casio-GW9400...&keywords=9400

    Was wondering is this the US edition?
    And will it have any negatives for me living in the UK?

    I really like it but I want to buy from Amazon as they have a good returns policy ect.

    I'm pretty sure all Gshocks read the date the American way MM-DD.

    You're safe. The suffix ... CR/ER etc. only designates a marketing region. You'll still be able to set it up for where you live ... & sync it with nearest atomic clock signal source.

    CR is North America ... ER is Europe.

    There's definitely no way to invert the date to DD-MM though. At least not an any G-Shock that I've heard of.

    To my knowledge, only the G-7800 can switch to UK format.

    Never thought of this. Would be a nice feature to see, also for US Military folks.
    Watch you seek, is watch you find, or maybe just covet.

    Yes indeed, Casio do nearly all their watches in the American style, which of course, is incorrect. The most frequently changed integer should be expressed first. Most folk looking at the calendar function know the month, but it's the date that often needs confirming! LOL

    It's probably important to note that "month, day" is the preferred format in not only the US, but also Japan, China, Taiwan, North and South Korea, and sometimes even in Canada (which apparently uses THREE different formats for the date!) Since Casio is based in Japan, why wouldn't they use their own format for their watches? (One of my Pathfinders' "year, month, day" display confused me a little at first.)

    Lets change the time of day accordingly:
    It is now in the 40:46:00 UTC

    Sorry, not consequent enough, lets re-order decimal positions also, such that the most changing number comes first:
    04:64:00

    There is a reason, the proper, and only correct standard for the traditional duodecimal notation, to give dates is 2015-07-22 00:46:40 +00

    Preferable would be an entirely decimal time. Unfortunately the second was defined rather inconveniently for that purpose, and as an SI base unit we cannot change it properly. I suggest, to develop solar-system engineering, to change earth's rotation period to exactly 1 100 ks, and its orbital period to exactly [s]30 Ms[/s] 40 Ms. (Correction: that way we have 10 Ms seasons, and fix global warming at the same time!)
