clock timezone zone hours-offset [minutes-offset]

Here are explanations for each parameter: zone This is the name of the time zone to be displayed when standard time is in effect.

hours-offset This is the hours difference from UTC.

minutes-offset This is the (optional) minutes difference from UTC.
