If you lose your preset stations as well, it means that your memory wire (sometimes yellow sometimes red) is not hooked to a constant power source. Get a testlight and find a wire in where the radio is at that has constant power once you find that attach the memory wire.

To set up your clock simply install one fresh AA, LR6 ALKALINE battery. Due to the nature of long wave radio signals it is normally not possible to receive a signal during the day so it is best to install the battery late in the evening. Select your time zone by pressing one of the four time zone buttons PT-Pacific Time, MT-Mountain Time, CT-Central Time, ET-Eastern Time. The time zone buttons may be pressed any time after installing the batteries. If multiple buttons are pressed the clock will set to the time zone selected last. If no time zone is selected the clock will default to Pacific Time. Another time zone can be selected during or after the clock has set itself. Your clock can only set itself to one of the four time zones stated above. For time zones outside of PT, MT, CT or ET you must manually set the time using the Manual Time set button on the back of the movement. When the battery is installed the second hand will advance eight seconds (two seconds per step x four steps). The clock is now searching for a signal. For the initial setting it is recommended to stand the clock in an upright position near a window. Within five minutes the clock will either receive the WWVB signal and set itself to the exact time, or it will determine that the signal is not receivable at its current location and time of day. If a signal is not receivable it will fast-forward the hands to the 4, 8, or 12 o'clock position and search for WWVB each hour until a signal is received. If the time is manually set the clock will continue to periodically search for a signal and automatically reset the hands when the signal is received.
the clock must supply directly from the battery , if no anytime when you switch on and of the clock come back to 12 and lose the memory.Is not difficult but need time to find the wire from clock and connect to an permanent 12 volt supply
somewhere on the board , consumption is very small few miliamps.
This was taken from a radio similar to yours. Same brand but different model. Hopefully it'll help.
(Also the "SEL" button it talks about is a big round button/knob on the right of the unit.)

First off who installed the radio?
If you or a friend did you ned to make sure that 12+ always is supplied to the radio and is hooked to the appropriate wire on the radio. If it does have 12+ always and it is hooked up correctly a replacement of the radio is in order, however I bet the wireing to the radio is crossed or the radio itself is uncorrectly installed.
The reason is the accessory and 12+ always wire has been crossed or was never there to begin with.
1. Check that the main unit is in standby mode (clock displayed)
2. Press and hold the [DISP] button
3. Turn the [VOL] button to adjust the time (Right: Minutes will advance, Left: Hours will advance)
4. Press the [DISP] button briefly
Push the function button once. turn the right knob (SEL) untill CLOCK ADJ shows on the screen. push SEL in one time to lock in CLOCK ADJ and the hours will blink. Turn the SEL knob to set the hours. push SEL again to get to the min. Turn SEL again to set min.
