not regarding the header of your email ;).
Did you already follow the advices provided by the Arch Wiki?
I have no idea how GNOME handles time sync, however, another Arch
Wiki mentions something related to KDE:
KDE can use NTP (ntp must be installed) by right clicking the clock and
selecting Adjust date/time. However, this requires the ntp daemon to be
disabled before configuring KDE to use NTP." -
IOW ensure that you check step by step, if anything already is
responsible to automatically sync time and ensure that you chose your
local correctly and if you should boot between different operating
systems, e.g. your Arch Linux install and another Linux distro's live
DVD, that there isn't an issue related to reading the RTC time in the
local time zone vs UTC.
