Battery - Time Issue

Twice now in the last week, after the car has been standing for a while, the time in the car is different. First time it was 1 hour behind, this morning it was exactly 12 hours behind.

Car is going into dealership tomorrow for something else, will mention this to them.

Current Car (in UAE):
2016 Volvo V40 T5 R-Design, Osmium Grey

Previous Car (in South Africa):
2013 Volvo V40 D3 Elite Geartronic, Ice White, sport pack, Nav, keyless entry, 18 inch Taranis, rear styling kit & mods

I had this on previous cars. If you have your time set to use a RDS radio station for time keeping and then use a none RDS radio station it can confuse the time when you turn the car on. To combat this either turn RDS off or switch to a RDS station for 10 minutes every now and then. Hope this helps.

I listen to DAB all of the time but don't get a clock issue. Or could this be because I have a built in satnav ?
