Unified CME - IP phones display GMT, not local time!

I've got a 2851 running Unified CME (12.4(15)T1). DHCP is provided by a Linux based server. I've configured the clock correctly on the 2851 as far as I can tell:

service timestamps debug datetime localtime

service timestamps log datetime localtime

clock timezone AEST 10

clock summer-time AEDST recurring last Sun Oct 2:00 last Sun Mar 3:00

And under telephony-service I have

time-zone 48

However my phones still seem to display GMT. Is there something else I'm supposed to be doing here? My logs seem to be in the correct time format with the localtime keyword.

Which phones do you have? And which FW on the phones ?

I am using the 7971G-GE, 7961G-GE and 7941G phones. 8.3.2SR1 on my 7971G-GE. I could check the others however I am convinced that there is something I am missing with my configuration - is this configured on the phones themselves perhaps? They are showing a time (and date) 11 hours behind, which is GMT.
