I'd like to have one clock in my status bar set to the same timezone as my servers. I've found three applications that will allow me to add another clock:

but they all use the system time (which I'd like to keep as-is). Are there any applications that allow timezone-munging inside the app, or will I need to write this myself?

    Are you certain this isn't supported natively? I doubt you will have to install a 3rd party application for something so simple.

  • While it's hardly the prettiest thing I've seen, this does exactly what I want, and it's GPLed. Thanks! Commented Oct 5, 2013 at 4:27

    Lovers works, but it does NOT work with the new "dark" menubar in OSX. Whereas mclock mentioned by @Ioannis below does adjust its text color. (github.com/palaniraja/mclock)

    download from the link no longer functional. Commented Aug 6, 2016 at 16:07
  • Not only won't it download, the MacUpdate page says "LoversClock has been discontinued". Commented Aug 30, 2018 at 15:40

Status clock is free, and available from the mac app store:


Worth a look too: https://github.com/palaniraja/mclock

Note: Loversclock, mentioned in another post, didn't download.

    mclock is also free. You can download the binary from github. You can pay if you want by downloading it from app store.

I would also really like to display multiple times in my menu bar, but I'm not able to find anything like that either. I landed on Clocker. It's free and you can easily assign a keyboard shortcut which is really nice.

    Yes! This is a very nice, free solution.

    This is by far the best solution I came across. Thanks for sharing Sam. Commented Dec 19, 2018 at 2:43

    It's also open source with MIT License: github.com/n0shake/Clocker Commented Jul 8, 2019 at 19:44

There is a free option. Install xbar and then the World Clock plugin from:

    Hey, that's now called xbar. (see xbarapp.com)

Would having a menubar clock that displays other timezones in a drop-down menu work? I find iStat Menus works for me for seeing other timezones easily, albeit not as easily as having the time in the timezone you want shown right there. It's commercial software, but there are similar open source project out there. Maybe one of them does the "other timezones in the dropdown" thing?

  • It's ok, but not ideal. I'll take a look, thanks. Commented Aug 13, 2012 at 22:04

This can be achieved in iStat now, at least on macOS. Example included;

iStat time display

  • While correct, it would be helpful if the steps needed to achieve this were included in your answer. BTW, "at least on macOS" - this feels rather irrelevant since we are on the Apple SE.
