Verify client certificate, but ignore expiration date

I wanted to know whether I can configure nginx to verify client
certificates and reject them if invalid.

However I would like to exclude the expiration date from the validation
step.

The context is rather simple.

I have some embedded devices trying to connect to a server. The client
certificate for these devices expired and for a certain time I will be
unable to update them.

Instead of disabling client certificates I would like to 'just' ignore
the expiration date.

Ideally I'd like to just ignore the expiration date of a few given
certificates, but in my current setup even ignoring all expiration dates
would be an option.

Is there any setup allowing this?

Thanks in advance for any suggestion of how to achieve this.
