Yeah... that's one of the standard options for the C-Itoh 101, as is
an internal real-time clock - I have a DCL procedure somewhere to
extract the time at login, and write it back out, wrapped in the
correct escape sequences to set the internal time (which is not held
across terminal resets/power-cycles).  One taps "SETUP" to see the
time in the upper right corner of the screen... I used to double-tap
SETUP so I could check the time of day from my desk.  Faster than
typing "DATE", and it doesn't disturb the current session.

The 101e doesn't have the internal clock, but it does support a
reasonble method of switching sessions if one plugs the printer port
into a second host - kinda like what DEC did with later terminals, but
available 10 years earlier.

I have a quantity of 101s and 101es in storage... They are one of my
favorite "non-DEC" terminals.
