Digital Clock

Well I've been online here getting some serious help so I thought I would throw out a apparent minor problem that has been going on for sometime but not causing ay other problems so I will leave well enough alone unless someone out here thinks (I can't say it) it may be a computer issue?

My Clock gains about 1 minute every 2-3 days. I thought this may have been an Alternator Voltage regulator issue but this happened before and after both were changed for other reasons.
Again, its not affecting anything else and had honestly been going on for 1 1/2 years since I bought this 05 R53 U.S. model now with 45000 miles

Any thoughts

Thank you all

I have an 2005 R-52, it looses 5 min. a week, has done done so since new. Dealer can't explain, nor will they replace. I just re-set it every Sunday on the way to Church.

Thanks I assumed this was a voltage issue, but condition remained identical after a new battery all new cables. alternator reg, all which were done for other reasons and not done at same time and exact same condition. I was surprised you said loses time which admittedly would be the most logical except mine is too fast

I am going to write this off as a glitch I can live with

And yes I just reset it at fill up when I reset the mileage and fuel
