Unfortunately, it is kind of on purpose. The .desktop file has OnlyShowIn=Unity; otherwise there will be multiple Time & Date options in gnome-control-center. There is a workaround though:

XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=Unity gnome-control-center indicator-datetime;

I suppose indicator-datetime could force that environment when it execs gnome-control-center, but otherwise I'm not really sure how to fix this issue.
