Does anyone use a Casio G Shock watch (with the auto feature)
when traveling on a domestic or international basis?

I presume the auto feature you are referring to is the time signal reception and time zone switching when traveling to another destination. I have a Casio G Shock with the feature - it works fairly well when traveling domestically (sometimes a bit of lag in switching time zones) but not so well traveling to the Caribbean - On my last Caribbean trip back in February to Grenada (nine days long) the watch never did make the switch to Atlantic Standard time. It is a long way from any time signal the watch might use and it never did connect. I believe you can do a manual override, but I've never tried that.

A manual override is doable in your case. When traveling
internationally, you can buy a auto 5 band G shock watch that
resets automatically when you land in UK, Europe or Japan, kinda
slick I'd say.
