I'm not observing this problem on Fedora 23 (2016d-1.fc23) with 
gnome-clocks (3.18.0-1.fc23).

Other users have reported problems with the Plasma Digital Clock applet 
after earlier tzdata upgrades. See for example:




The first thread says that a relevant bug was fixed in plasma 5.5; are 
you running that version? If not, I suggest upgrading. If so, perhaps 
there are other, similar bugs that haven't been fixed yet.
