I've got the same issue. I haven't tried it yet, but am considering using the coil and board from a cheap quartz pendulum movement to see if it will work.

Merritt's sells them.
make sure your not using energizer batters.

The negative post is deferent than other battery's . If its a time only clock, it doesn't seem to matter, but, if it has a pendulum, plays music, chimes, or anything more than keep time, some part of it will not work. There's been a lot of quartz clock thrown away because of them. It pains me to say this but the Japanese battery's are slightly longer than American battery's , and they work better in quartz clocks.

That's typically a problem with Hermle quartz movements. I haven't run into it with any other types of quartz movements.

Haa Thanks
A mechanical problem.
There are a number of ways to fix it but much simpler
to just use a different battery.
Makes sense
