I managed to remove the clock/date display from my system tray. How do I get it back?

I think I removed it by right-clicking on it and then deselecting some options, but no amount of right-clicking gives me any option to bring it back.

Right Click on the Start Orb/Button and click Properties.

Under the Taskbar tab, click "Customize" in the notification area section.
