Default Question about analog clock

I've had my Macan S for three weeks, and I'm enjoying the vehicle. I've got three of the "known issues", the alarm problem, no spare tire, and the leaking rear washer. There is one other thing that is bugging me. It seems to happen randomly, but there have been several times when I open my driver's side door, the analog clock on top of the dash quickly spins it's hands counter-clockwise around the entire dial and stops at the correct time. Am I being dumb and just not understanding this, has anyone else noticed it?
I am enjoying my Macan immensely. I only wish the dealer I purchased it from in St. Louis were a bit more forthcoming with answers to my questions, so far I've had no indication that they are checking any of this with Porsche North America. Thank goodness this forum exists and there are lots of good people giving good input!!!

It should not be happening randomly. When you turn the car off the clock will set itself with all arms pointing up (probably for aethetics, or maybe there is some reason I'm not aware of.) When you get back in it should spin to the correct time. You might not always notice if the actual time is something close to the all arms up position, like 1:10pm or something like that. It does the same when you go into timer mode with SC.

I'm not sure about the "all arms pointing up". But when you turn the car off after a few minutes the clock "goes to sleep" to save power. The car's computer is maintaining the time, and when you get back in and the power comes back on the clock is moved to the current time. What I've noticed is that the process is that the clock is first moved back to 12:00 from whatever position it was in when it went to sleep, and then moves forward to the current time.

I guess I could have just said 'noon', but the position seems intentional. So are you saying the clock just dies at the time it shuts off and stays that way until you turn it on ? I must have missed that.

My alarm issues were corrected by a warranty replacement of the sensor -- are others not finding this a resolution?

For #1 -- the leaky rear washer -- my dealer got a new part from Germany and replaced it. There has been no leak since.

Also, there is now an update for the computer system to fix some issues.

I also previously reported this fix in another thread. My dealer replaced the sensor 2 weeks ago and no more false alarms
