 Can you try "hwclock -w -v" to get more details?

 For example on my workstation:

        # ./hwclock -w -v
        hwclock from util-linux 2.35-rc1-20-63f8
        System Time: 1577963091.683987
        Trying to open: /dev/rtc0
        Using the rtc interface to the clock.
        Last drift adjustment done at 1531914946 seconds after 1969
        Last calibration done at 1531914946 seconds after 1969
        Hardware clock is on UTC time
        Assuming hardware clock is kept in UTC time.
        RTC type: 'rtc_cmos'
        Using delay: 0.500000 seconds
        missed it - 1577963091.684767 is too far past 1577963091.500000 (0.184767 > 0.001000)
        1577963092.500000 is close enough to 1577963092.500000 (0.000000 < 0.002000)
        Set RTC to 1577963092 (1577963091 + 1; refsystime = 1577963091.000000)
        Setting Hardware Clock to 11:04:52 = 1577963092 seconds since 1969
        ioctl(RTC_SET_TIME) was successful.
        Not adjusting drift factor because the --update-drift option was not used.
        New /etc/adjtime data:
        0.000000 1577963091 0.000000
