Nice Clock, Is the number of the battery PC1A (LR 50) BATTERY ? If not can you tell me the number on the battery please? Thanks Mike
That is the 1,000,000$ question.My `@#$%^&*)+ brother in-law, a few years ago decided to throw that battery away, since, (in his narrow mind), it was no good.From the picture you sent me, ( and from what I remember), this is what it "looked like". I know this is not much, but I willing to try it..Let's assume that the number you mention is the correct one, if the voltage is 1.35 V, it will certainly do the trick.Jean-Claude De Groote

The technology has changed a lot. Originaly, since it was mercury containing battery, the output voltage was 1.35 Vdc. Now with the ban on mercury, the alkalyne/acid technology has replaced it. this chemical reaction howver produces a 1.47 Vdc output. I have leaned from the manufacturer of the cell, (Mallory), that the difference in voltage is within the range of the operating frenquency range, (resonance frequency), of the crystal, (quartz).
