remove date and time

All I want to do is hide the date and time from the center of wingpanel, I circled the location of the date and time for reference. I don't think it looks ugly or anything I just don't feel the need to have it displayed. Any help would be much appreciated, thanks!

You can remove the indicator

sudo apt-get remove wingpanel-indicator-datetime

revert it with

sudo apt-get install wingpanel-indicator-datetime

For me what worked was using dconf-editor. Just install it and is very simple to configure. I followed this tutorial Elementary OS customization
