How Do I Set My G Shock To Military Time?


Having a G-Shock is great for so many things, but sometimes you end up with a feature that you’re not sure how you turn it on in the first place. For instance, even some may really like the Military time and G-Shock is a popular option among the Military personal, this type of display isn’t for everyone. It’s funny (to say the least) when you find your watch switched to the Military Time all on its own.

It takes some patience and a good understanding of the direction that come with the watch in order to get there.


You should begin by identifying each of the 5 buttons of your G-Shock. Two of them are placed at 2 o’clock, 4 o’clock, 6 o’clock, 8 o’clock and 10 o’clock.

Continue by pressing the button from the 10 o’clock. You’re gonna notice how the second digits blink.

Press now the button in the 6 o’clock. You see instantly how the hour digits change from civilian time to military time. It goes the other way around as well.

You may stop the second digits from blinking by pressing the button at 10 o’clock position. When it’s earlier than 1 o’clock, you can’t really tell the difference between the civilian and military format just by looking at the digits. You are always in the military format if the watch displays the “24”.
