hwclock --set has not worked. I think my system has just been using Gnome location service to grab the network time each time it boots.

"Error: Date and time settings could not be saved" when I try to manually set date and time. Setting NTP servers for synchronization works, however.

I just use NTP (I have a stratum 1 server on the local network).
