Just updated Ubuntu 13.10 and I now have the same issue, no clock in the global menu, all clock setting greyed out. Calender does not function either.

Solved for me. I thought it was fixed as it was resolved after installing some updates, but it may be restarting computer or unity. Plus I played a bit with setting in dconf-editor for "com.canonical.indicator.datetime".

I would say switching off almost everything and then restarting unity might be a way to go?

This happened to me after I added a "Time in other locations" (via the GUI: Settings > Time & Date > Clock) and at the same time, removed UTC.
I didn't want UTC to be shown, just my current time zone (British Summer Time) and the timezone in California, but it also showed UTC which is currently 1 hour behind (but won't be for much longer).

I fixed it with:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure tzdata
and a restart of the computer

The 'solution' from comment #6 worked for me. I have no idea why the clock disappears, have not spotted a pattern yet.
