Faerûn does not have time zones the way the modern-day Earth has time zones.
But neither did Earth until about 200 years ago.
That’s not to say that without time zones that it’s the same, for want of a better word, time, everywhere on Faerûn or Earth. Both are planets spinning on their axis while orbiting a star so they have a day-night cycle and when it’s dawn in Cormyr it’s still night on the Sword Coast.
When is dawn?
Dawn is not when the sun comes up!
Dawn is the beginning of twilight. Morning twilight starts at dawn and ends at sunrise.
Furthermore, there are 3 dawns. Astronomical dawn is when the stars start to fade. Nautical dawn is when it is possible to distinguish the horizon between the sea and the sky. Civil dawn is when it is light enough to see most things. Formally, these are when the sun is 18, 12, and 6 degrees below the horizon. Practically, local geography and latitude affect the perception of dawn, as does light pollution.
Twilight is the shortest at the equator, where each stage lasts about 24 minutes at the equinoxes. Above about 54 degrees, there is no twilight (and, therefore, no dawn) in summer because there is no dusk - it never gets dark enough to be officially night. This will screw with your players nicely.
The "cheat" of chasing the dawn with your magic item is as valid as your DM lets it be.
Does your DM require the items to experience each dawn (at least 54 minutes apart) or a particular dawn to reset?
Does it use the official designations or is it based on geography? Dawn on a tall mountain happens earlier than dawn in a deep valley if we aren't using the official designations because it's based on what you can actually see.
Does the magic item need to be exposed to the dawn so if you are in a cave, too bad?
All sorts of fun is possible.
Unnecessary diversion on time zones
Time zones are a product of industrial society (which Faerûn isn’t) and particularly a society with rapid transport that requires synchronisation over large distances. Here on Earth, it was the development of trains that required time zones.
In pre-industrial society, time was a pretty imprecise thing at scales less than a day. It was dawn when the sun came up, morning when it was going up, midday when it was overhead, afternoon when it was going down, dusk when it set and night after that. In Europe, the day was divided into 12 hours and so was the night and that meant that hours weren’t the same length except on the equinoxes. An hour was one-sixth of the time between dawn and noon, or dusk and midnight, not 60 minutes of 60 fixed-length seconds.
When clocks that used clockwork were developed, the hour was redefined to be a fixed unit of time so sometimes there were more than 12 in a day/night and sometimes less. However, clocks were big and not very portable, particularly since most were built into clock towers. They were set to local time, usually by looking at the sun saying “it’s about noon, let her rip”.
The only places that were really accurate about timekeeping were ports and they were only interested in precisely when noon was. Most ports would fire a gun or drop a ball (which is where the New York Eve Times Square thing comes from) at precisely noon to allow ships to set their timepieces. These were initially hourglasses and the effort to develop an accurate clock that would work on a ship was huge. Land-based clocks used pendulums and these don't work on ships because ships move and wreck the pendulum's motion. It was really important to know what time it was where the ship came from because it was the only way of working out your longitude (east-westness).
This is probably the accuracy at which Faerûn operates. When the fastest you can move from one place to another is the speed of horse (some high falutin' wizards aside) and you have no way of keeping time while you travel it doesn’t matter that the time in different places isn’t synchronised.
In any event, time zones aren’t accurate. Today, 21 September 2021, solar noon in London is at 12:53 pm but in Birmingham, it’s at 1:00 pm, 7 minutes later because Birmingham is west of London. Noon is not anywhere near 12:00 pm in either place because the UK moves their clocks forward an hour in summer. So, while BST gives the “right” time (today, at least) in Birmingham, it’s completely wrong in London - 7 minutes wrong all day.
The reason we have time zones is that we invented the train.
Once long-distance train journeys happened, the companies that operated them needed to operate them to a timetable and they weren’t going to faff about with the minor issue that the people in Birmingham thought it was a different time from the people in London. Even though they were right - the time in Birmingham is different from London.
So railway time was born. And the railway companies built stations. With clocks. All set to the same time. And these competed with the church and town clocks that were set to the right local time. And they won. Eventually.
And then, as railways and steamships spread further and portable clocks became more accurate it became necessary to synchronise time across the whole world.
There are 2 ways of doing this. One is to pick a time and decide that is the time everywhere. That’s what China does: even though it stretches across 5 “time zones” everywhere is on Beijing time.
The other is time zones. Earth needs them. Faerûn doesn’t.
Dawn on non-round, non-spinning planets
So, Earth and Faerûn are globes orbiting a star. But what if your campaign takes place on an infinite flat plane? Or two infinite flat planes? Or on the severed hand of a titanic dead god illuminated by the sparkling droplets of that god's blood? Or on the inside of a Dyson Sphere? Or on Mechanus?
Basically, what happens if your DM isn't boring?
