Update (9 Feb 2017)

It has brought to my attention that some countries observe Daylight Saving Time (DST). For those who are from countries that observing it, you can actually turn the DST feature of this watch on. To do that, go to the World Time (WT) mode and push and hold the "Adjust" button until you see the DST on the screen.

    1. Hello Kendrick, unfortunately there is no explicit Phillipines city code on the watch but never the less, Phillipines GMT/UTC offset is +8 hours. So it means you can use whichever cities that have 8h offset.

    1. Hello, I check the UTC offset with timeanddate.com and found out that Memphis UTC offset is -5 hours. From the table you can choose between Toronto, Miami, New York City or Winnipeg as your reference city.

  9. You gave incorrect advice to several individuals, Memphis & Oklahoma city are not in the Eastern time zone so advising to use Miami or NYC (GMT -5) is incorrect. They should be using Chicago (GMT -6) which is in the central time zone. Also, Louisville KY is in the Eastern time zone (GMT -5) as with NYC or Miami not (GMT -4) which is the Atlantic time zone.

    1. Hi, thank you for the message. You are correct that all the timezone you have specified. Apparently, I did not notice that Daylight Saving time is practice in US. For example Memphis is UTC -5 from MAR to NOV and it is UTC -6 from NOV till MAR. https://www.timeanddate.com/time/zone/usa/memphis

      Thank you for bringing this up.

    2. Hello again, I re-read again the manual for my watch and it turns out it has DST feature where I can turn it on! But my country does not observe it so I left it switched off. I will make a note for the reader in this post about it.

    1. Wow! nice G-Shock piece. I checked with the manual (http://support.casio.com/storage/en/manual/pdf/EN/009/qw5229.pdf) of your G-Shock and I couldn't find Amsterdam. Anyway, the UTC offset for Amsterdam is -1 hour (https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/netherlands/amsterdam). You could use Madrid, Paris, Rome, Berlin or Stockholm as there are in the time zone of UTC -1 hour. I also notice that this watch has daylight saving feature and you can use it if your country observe it.
