Surprisingly for a managed device, I just don't see it either.  It appears all dates & times are relative to boot from what I see.

I checked the documents for one of their current managed switches, the GSM7328FS.  I does provide the expected CLI commands.  It appears that their older devices just did not have that capability.
clock timezone
When using SNTP/NTP time servers to update the switch’s clock, the time data received from the server is based on Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) which is the same as Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). This may not be the time zone in which the switch is located. Use the clock timezone command to configure a time zone specifying the number of hours and optionally the number of minutes difference from UTC. To set the switch clock to UTC, use the no form of the command.
Format sntp server <ipaddress|hostname> [<priority> [<version> [<portid>]]]
Mode Global Config
Format no sntp server remove <ipaddress|hostname>
Mode Global Config
Format clock timezone zone-name +/-hours-offset [+/-minutes-offset]
Mode Global Config
Default no clock timezone
