This is one way to do it:

  tomas@trotzki:~$ cat /etc/adjtime
  0.000000 1539378883 0.000000


The last line will tell you whether the hwclock command is expecting
the hardware clock to be "ticking" UTC or local (if you haven't any
other OS like Windows booting from the same machine, UTC is strongly

The other mysterious values are used to compensate inaccuracies of
the hardware clock itself.
