Hmm...

Battery may be OK but there may have been a long enough disconnection in the path feeding the radio supply.
Did the clock lose a few seconds?

Yes it did.  It's done that previously but never lost my presets.

Had it serviced about a month ago.

So it looks like the battery is dead.  Went to start it this morning and it just ticks.  Waiting for RACV.

I had it serviced maybe three weeks ago?  Surely they would have checked the battery???

You'd think so.

But batteries have a nasty habit of failing unexpectedly. They can be fine and for no apparent reason one of the plates can buckle.

Like RACV said, car is 5 years old…battery possibly 6.

Just an expense I wasn’t expecting today.

Yeah. They're not cheap these days.
But make sure you get one with enough power to drive everything.

Mine just went after a long drive back from Melbourne, 2016 installation. That's reasonable.
It's a 680 CCA in my model.

Radio presets went again this morning.  Clock didn’t “flicker” like it did last time.

Suggestions?

New battery two months ago.
