Unlocking "Date with Daphne" in your time zone…
Hopefully this thread will dispel the confusion and issues for unlocking this achievement...
If you want to unlock this achievement on the date in the description and have the time stamp, be warned that the game uses the GMT +0 time zone, NOT your local time. For example, if you are on the East Coast of the USA (Washington D.C.) and play this game at 10pm on June 19th thinking this achievement will unlock, you are wrong. East Coast USA is GMT -5, so the game thinks it's already 3am on June 20th. Messed up, huh?
GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) and UTC (Coordinated Universal Time) mean the same thing, just in case you see one without the other.
GMT +0 runs through the UK, France, Spain and Western Africa. Since it goes 12 hours in either direction, you need to compensate for local time. I’ve listed below the time frame for each time zone in which you can unlock this achievement.
If you want to unlock this achievement within the correct time frame, you first have to calculate your time zone to GMT. Google (or another search engine of choice) your location and add “time zone” after it, e.g. “Anchorage time zone”, which then displays “UTC -09:00”. So, if I was in Anchorage, Alaska, according to the list below, I would have to play the game between 3pm June 18th and 3pm June 19th to unlock this achievement. Of course, I wouldn’t wait until the last minute available to play the game. If you do and the achievement doesn’t unlock, you only have yourself to blame and will have to wait another year. Do yourself a favor and give yourself enough time.

Digital Leisure, the developer of this release, is a Canadian company based in Ontario, Canada, which is GMT -5, so there’s no logical reason why they would program this to unlock based on GMT +0 time and not your local time. It seems kind of asinine that they did this. The bigger surprise is that Microsoft Studios, based in Redmond, Washington USA and is GMT -8, is the publisher! Go figure.
