    If you have the Utility face with all 12 numbers displayed, you should see that the 12, 3, 6, and 9 "fly in" twice whenever you slowly scroll into the watch face from the home screen.

    It's pretty easy to speculate what happened since you can have the Utility face show only those four numbers instead of all 12.

    Edit: I shot a video that demonstrates the bug. Brookzy (below) posted a GIF that also demonstrates it, although he/she is scrolling too quickly to easy notice it (it is barely visible in his/her GIF).

    I can see it from your GIF, actually—the 12, 3, 6, and 9 are flying in twice. They actually fly in right before they're supposed to, and then again correctly (relative to the other numbers).

    Try moving the crown more slowly and you'll see!

    I made my own video:

    I can see it, but have to scroll as slow as it will let me. I don't normally access the watch face that way so I never noticed.

    Heh, I usually fiddle with it since it's neat to see the different components of the watch face flying in. It's a shame that the default watch face has a bug that no one caught before release! I'm sure it's an easy fix, though.

    Yep I'm also seeing it. Hopefully they'll fix it soon.

    Can't believe you even noticed this. I had to try 5 times to even see it. I just woke up. Might need coffee.

    I've been trying to but I haven't found a Watch OS option—any ideas?

    Edit: Never mind, I just reported a general bug.

    Haha wow good catch - that is pretty funny that you found this. Maybe it's meant to be this way. If you do the same at normal speed, maybe it adds a small non-noticeable flair to the overall animation?
