How do I add UTC / GMT in gnome-clocks? There must be a way to do this; but searching for UTC, GMT, etc, returns nothing.

This is kind of a hack, but it works: add Reykjavík, Iceland to your list. They’re always in the UTC time zone all-year round with no daylight savings or anything that would interfere with the timezone.

This worked thanks. GMT is nice to have to verify the accuracy of my other clocks.

All the clocks are based on your local system clock and just displays offsets from UTC. The app is meant for people who work with people around the world. If all you want is accurate system time, then go to System Settings: Date and Time and enable Automatic Date and Time. This will sync your system clock with network clocks linked to atomic clocks.
