West Africa Time, or WAT, is a time zone used in west-central Africa. West Africa Time is one hour ahead of Coordinated Universal Time (UTC+01:00), which makes it the same as Central European Time (CET) during winter, or Western European Summer Time (WEST) and British Summer Time (BST) during the summer.

Countries west of Benin (except Morocco and Western Sahara above) are in the UTC±0 time zone. Civil time in most of these countries is defined with reference to Greenwich Mean Time (nowadays an alias for UTC±0 than an independent reference).
