I see a similar defect with xfce4-panel 4.12.0-4 amd64 and a custom 
format: the clock turns blank after closing the Properties dialog unchanged.

Set a custom format (e.g "%R - %-d %B %Y") and close the Properties 
dialog. Note that the clock works fine. Now the Steps To Reproduce:

(1) Open the Properties dialog.

(2) Close the Properties dialog unchanged. Either the Close Button or 
the window frame close icon will do.

The Custom Format is cleared, causing the clock to be blank. The empty 
applet can still be discovered with mouse hovering and modified with the 
right-click menu.

Workaround: Don't Do That Then

Using: xfce4-panel 4.12.0-4 amd64
