The watch will set itself at specific time set times, this is likely to be at 0200 0400 and 0600.
You will however be required to set the time zone, the switch is likely to be on the back.
INFO:
Atomic Time Synchronisation:
How does it work.
SHORT VERSION:
Radio set clocks and watches receive a 60-kilohertz, radio signal from the NIST the official timekeeper for the US and is located in Boulder, Colorado. Ft. Collins. they use atomic clocks and transmits this official time via high frequency short-wave and low frequency AM radio signals, satellite transmission, Internet, and via telephone.

I have a number of these Casio and Citizen watches. This watch does not use GPS for the time keeping. It uses a land based broadcast time signal. There is public information about where the signals come from for your area. The technical breakdown of the time code signal is public access information.

The instruction manual of the watch has the information about when your watch should automatically receive the time signal, and how to set up the watch. Many of the manuals also included a map showing the time signal coverage, and includes the time of day information to show when the signal is strongest.

Make sure the watch settings are for your time zone. This is important. If the main time zone is not for your area it will be trying to receive the signal at the wrong frequency at the wrong time of day. There are areas where the signal may not be able to be received. You can get the mapping for this from the service that the watch has been set to use.

In North America the auto time receive is supposed to take place between midnight 00:00 to 04:00. In the eastern part of North America the reception is poor compared to central and western part of North America. Check the instruction manual for your watch for details.

Below is the spec listing of your watch.

How do I set my watch?


This depends if you want to use the autoreceive mode or not. If you're within an area that you can pick up the signal, it should set itself automatically at 3AM, 4AM and 5AM. You can force it to try and calibrate to the broadcast signal by holding down the receive button while in the "normal" time mode. For best results, put it near a window that faces Colorado (assuming you're in the states) with the top of the watch facing the window.

To turn on or off the autoreceive mode:
From the time mode, hold down the Adjust button until the watch beeps and your time zone is flashing at the bottom. Press the Mode button twice so [ON/OFF] Auto is flashing. Press Receive to toggle the mode, then press Adjust twice to set.

If, for whatever reason, you're unable or don't want to use autoset, to manually set:
From the time mode, hold down the Adjust button until the watch beeps and your time zone is flashing at the bottom. Press the Adjust button again and 12H/24H will be flashing at the bottom. Press mode again and seconds will be flashing. Mode once more and the hours will be flashing. Use Time Memo/Receive to set it to what you want. Press mode again and minutes flash. Again, use Time Memo/Receive to set it to what you want. Repeat for year, month & day. Press Adjust to finish chaning the time.

seems pretty extensive.
you either need to set your time manually if you are not automatically receiving the atomic signal. if you are receiving the signal, then either you are not in auto DST mode or your home city is set incorrectly.
