There are 2 solutions

 

First one, do a describeSObjects() for the User object and analyse the picklist values for the field TimeZoneSidKey. You will get all values allowing you to match the master and displayed value (what you were retrieving is the master value)

 

The second solution (the simplest one) is to do a simple SOQL query :

select tolabel(TimeZoneSidKey) from user where id='00520000000xxxxxxx' limit 1
