Question about Watches
The original Hechinger Quartz Movement for this clock is no longer made. Hechinger makes quartz movements but the current ones are a different form factor and will not fit this clock.
Search on ebay for "hechinger quartz clock". You will often find clocks that have the exact same movement. They usually include pictures showing the movement so you can verify it's the same one. You can buy these used clocks for $10 - $20. It's difficult to find a clock with the movement that has the pendulum pivot on top and the pendulum electromagnet on bottom. Mostly what you find on ebay are clocks with the same movement but without the pendulum attachments. But the electronics are the same and you can just swap the quartz electronics. This requires some soldering. You could take your clock and the replacement movement to a clock repair shop and have them replace the internals.
You may need to search ebay several times over a period of a few months but these do appear occasionally. I was able to fix our Michael Graves Alessi Mantle clock this way. I also bought a few of these clocks on ebay to have a lifetime supply of replacement movements.
