Please note: Only for NON uclibc installs

glibc based installs use different timezone setup.

apk add tzdata
ls /usr/share/zoneinfo

(Suppose you want to use Brussels) (First copy the proper zone to localtime)

cp /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Brussels /etc/localtime

(Now specify your timezone)

echo "Europe/Brussels" >  /etc/timezone
