List file names with modified time stamp customized

Commands used to list files from a directory yields results of more details and time stamp with GMT values. To customize the output to display the file names only with time stamp in custom format with sorted order, use:
$ find . -mindepth 1 -maxdepth 1 -type f -printf "%TY-%Tm-%Td %TH:%TM:%.2TS %f\n" | sort -n 
Here the mindepth and maxdepth parameters were used to use the current directory for the search. That can be modified as per need. And the output will be,
2014-04-22 19:34:36 .bash_logout
2014-04-22 19:34:36 examples.desktop
2014-04-22 19:34:36 .profile
2014-04-22 21:26:24
2014-04-22 22:09:20 .bashrc
2014-05-04 08:41:42 .dmrc
