Recently the clock on my OSX menu bar has disappeared for no apparent reason. I'm using OSX 10.10.5

I try to add it again by going to System Preferences --> Date & Time --> Clock --> Show date and time in menu bar.

When I click on the option box, after about a second it seems to just uncheck itself. No error or warning is provided.

How can I make the clock appear in my menu bar again?

    Have you tried resetting your disk permissions? I've seen this help with similar strange problems.
