The short answer is: Don't look at the time that is displayed on the machine, trust cura.

Slightly longer answer. The machine estimates the remaining time based on how long a layer takes to lay down and how many remains (I don't know the exact mechanism behind it, it's slightly more complicated than that) which is far from accurate as you might have tiny layers at the start and huge ones at the end or vice versa. cura's estimates on the other hand are usually very close to real time.
