Convert to a zoned-time from a sys-timeSource:
This is a sys-time method for the
Converting to a zoned-time from a sys-time retains the underlying duration,
but changes the printed time, depending on the
zone that you choose.
Remember that sys-times are interpreted as UTC.
If you want to retain the printed time, try converting to a zoned-time from a naive-time, which is a time point with a yet-to-be-determined time zone.
