I'm assuming the "Set time zone automatically" doesn't work?

Why wouldn't it work. Microsoft knows who you are and where you are, so of course it can and does set the time-zone accurately.

For it to set the time zone automatically requires that some form of location sensing is turned on. If you don't use, or don't have, this facility it is a minor problem. RIGHT clcik on the clock on the task bar and select 'Adjust date and time' from the pop-up menu. Then select 'Change time zone', pick the appropriate zone and that's it. If your time zone has 'summer' time it will adjust automatically for that.

Are you dual booting?

This can be an issue if you dual boot, I have had it happen on my linux/windows 10 dualboot system

Yes, exactly. If the OP is dual booting then when he goes back to Windows he will see a different time. Of course that is an easy fix as well.

It shouldn't be hard to set the time to sync with microsoft's online time servers whenever you think the machine has had it's time drift out of sync. It happens to me sometimes (on windows 8.1 but the principles are the same) when I've just restored from a system image made before the clocks change (daylight saving time) but the current date is after the clocks have changed. The system is an hour out, but by making sure that I'm connected to the internet then going into "control panel", to the "date and time" settings and using the "internet tme" tab it's not difficult to get the computer's time back in agreement with other clocks in the house. This same principle should let you reset the time on your computer whenever you think it is incorrect.
Back on this site, for a while anyway, been so busy the last year.

My systems:2 laptops, intel i3 processors, windows 8.1 installed on the hard-drive and linux mint 17.3 MATE installed to USB

Why would you assume that?
