 |That is easy on Unix:
 |  $ gpg --list-keys --with-colons \
 || awk -F: -v days=60 \
 |      'BEGIN { from=systime(); to=from+(days*86400)};\

Not _that_ easy ("date +%s" maybe, strftime(3) %s is old).

  #?2|kent:$ awk 'END{print systime()}' </dev/null
  #?0|kent:$ mawk 'END{print systime()}' </dev/null
  #?0|kent:$ nawk 'END{print systime()}' </dev/null
  nawk: calling undefined function systime
   source line number 1
  #?2|kent:$ busybox.static awk 'END{print systime()}' </dev/null
