First, does your data come paired with the time values, or as a single list where the
time values are implied? In the first case ListPlot should put on the time values
correctly. In the second case you can create a paired list by
Transpose[timevalues,datavalues] where you first create the list of time values. Then
ListPlot should work. You may also want to use the Ticks option in ListPlot to make
the time axes look just the way you want. See Section 2.9.5 in the Mathematica Book.

Also Ruskeepkaa has a good example of this kind of plot in his Mathematica Navigator
book, Section 9.1.2.
