$ timedatectl 
               Local time: Sat 2018-11-10 17:46:39 CET
           Universal time: Sat 2018-11-10 16:46:39 UTC
                 RTC time: Sat 2018-11-10 16:46:39
                Time zone: Europe/Amsterdam (CET, +0100)
System clock synchronized: yes
              NTP service: active
          RTC in local TZ: no
