Set use-commit-times = yes in the miscellany section of your
configuration file and you should get the local timestamp set to when
the last commit for each file was performed when you checkout/update.

If you want to keep the actual timestamp upon commit, that's an
oft-requested, but as-yet-unimplemented feature.
