How about the classic, xclock? Or oclock?

See /usr/ports/x11-clocks/oclock for more inspiration, there
are several clocks in this category which do not require you
to install a whole desktop environment just to see what time
it is. :-)

Additionally to xclock, I'm also using intclock to check the
time in other places of the world relevant for me.
