There is the manual. The instructions for setting both digital and analog time are on the first page. Note, if you SCROLL DOWN the link to Casio's website was already posted to find this. I found this information ON THIS PAGE. So if you can't find info by scrolling down, I fear for you with setting this watch. :) It is easy though.

Hand home positioning normally has nothing to do with time setting.
Just set your local time and date and then you can do the hand home positioning procedure.This will not affect the time setting.If hands,after a while,do not show correctly,this means that the watch is under severe magnetic field, after severe shock or finally watch malfunction.
You must know that on this type of watches analog time follows digital time.
when a watch has analog hands and has digital portion, 9 times out of 10 it will have 2 batteries inside. A lithium battery and a normal battery. It is possible one died before the other. Usually the lithium (digital portion) lasts longer. Have the battery changed.
The analog hands and face are clean looking and manage to give the watch a classic face. It won't turn any heads, positively or negatively. The hands are rather thin and silver which makes it blend in too easily with the face. Stupidly, Casio put a vertical and horizontal silver line on the face which further causes the hands to be visually lost. The hands aren't hard to see, but because they blend they aren't easy to see either. And there is no second hand at all; but the digital portion covers that function.
The digital portion in the bottom can only display two rows of information. So it's either day/date, or time/seconds. The top row is hard to see because the face shadows over it partially. The numbers are on the small side; not for old eyes. The digital portion has all the fundamental functions: time/date, hourly chime, chrono, 3 alarms, count down, dual time, and even "data bank" which is a very crude phone/number data bank.
The LED's are the old 80's yellowish tinge type and do a very poor job of illuminating the face... but if you're in the dark, it'll do the job. The hands have glow in the dark paint on them which also helps you just barely make out the time in the dark.
There is just nothing great at all about this watch; but it does everything you REALLY need a watch to do. Couple this with the 10-year battery, 100M water resistance, and $25 price tag, and you have something that just gets the job done reliably and economically. It might be plain vanilla, but it's real and hits the spot.
In general this watch is set by setting the digital portion and the hands will set automatically. Start there. There are other potential problems but start by setting the digital. Make sure the battery is charged first. If that doesn't do it, then you may need to do a reset (see the instructions). This will insure the hands all line up at the 12 oclock position. Try setting first however the digital portion and see what happens
The digital timepiece on a watch is set using the function buttons on the outer part of the watch face. To set the digital time, press and hold the upper left button until the seconds starts blinking. Press the lower right button to reset the seconds to "00."
Push the lower left button to move to the Daylight Savings Time portion of the watch. Use the lower right button to toggle between "On" and "OFF."
Press the lower left button twice. The hours unit will start blinking. To advance the hour, press the lower right button repeatedly until the correct hour is displayed. If you need to move the hours unit backwards, press the middle right button until the correct hour is displayed. When the hour is set, press the lower left button to switch to minutes, and use the same commands to change the minutes unit.
After the time is set, press the upper left button to exit the digital time setting function.
Setting Analog Time
You may find after setting the digital timepiece that the analog display does not match. When this occurs, you need to set the analog time. To set the analog time, press the lower left button 6 times. Next, press and hold the upper left button until the digital time starts to blink. This indicates that you are in analog time setting mode.
Analog time adjustment is completed using the lower right button. Every time you press the button, the analog time will advance 20 seconds. If you need to make a big change to the analog time, press and hold the lower right button to make the hands move faster. Once the analog time is set, press the upper left button to exit the analog time setting mode.
Without knowing the model of the watch i would say you need a new battery. It is typical for this style of watch to have two batteries or one lithium battery. In either case the analog movement will drain faster than the digital portion of the watch and will stop working first.
It is possible to set the main analogue hour and minute hand 30 minutes out of phase with the digital readout, but doing so will also put the analogue UTC dial 30 minutes off. It can be done by using a variation of the proceedure for zeroing the watch hands as follows:
1. Rotate the crown in its normal opering position to set the watch in chronograph mode (mode dial pointing to "chr")
2. Pull out the crown to the second click. This should cause all the hands on the watch to return to zero. "HR" should appear on the left-hand digital display. This will allow you to move the hour hand by twisting the crown. Advance it to about half way between the 12 o'clock and 1 o'clock positions.
3. Press the top button. "MIN" should appear in the left-hand digital display. This allows you to adjust the minute hand. Twist the crown to advance it to the 6 o'clock, or 30 minute, position. Note that this will also move the minute hand on the small UTC dial to the 30 minute position.
4. Press the crown back into its normal position.
5. Reset the digital time and date according to a time zone that is in a one-hour offset from UTC.
This is not a perfect solution. Your digital readings will show the correct time for all one-hour offset time zones while your analogue nads are 30 minutes out of phase. Your small UTC dial will also be 30 minutes out of phase with the digital UTC.
Hope this helps.
