You have a working one? I've tried three of them, if I pressed that button every minute it was accurate:)

Well in fact I did some research, when testing them on the bench they all kept running for weeks but the slightest vibration did stop them running.
Seems that it has to do with worn contacts inside. The internals is just a 50 cent quartz movement made by German clockmaker Kienzle.
Searching their site by engraved partnumber automatically redirected me to LR, the difference that makes them unique is the electric adjusting button instead of of a turning knob on the central axle.
I gave up, refusing to pay LR price for a new one.

I took mine apart and it was very obvious which soldered connection was cracked, so I reflowed the solder and its been good for 4 years. I can get some pics if its not as obvious to others.

I’ll pop mine out and have a look, I find it so annoying as I’ve spent a lot of time and money to get my rig to the standard it’s at, the clocks the last thing to do ( hope it doesn’t hear me, lol )
