Quartz clock movement.

I have an AM clock in pristine condition with the exception that it does not work. I had heard there is a quartz movement available? If so, any suppliers? Thanks!

After taking the clock apart I'm finding the movement inside has a clear plasic housing? Is this quartz already?

68 - I had the clock in the javelin replaced years ago, and it's been working fine ever since.  Quartz movement,
smooth second hand movement.
 
I'll be darned if I remember who did it though, I believe it was one of the vendors in Musclecar Review (the original
mag Smiley ).  It's been over 15 years since I had it done, so who knows if they are still around.  I looked up clock repair
and D&M restoration came up.  You could try to give them a call.  http://www.dandmrestoration.com/clocks
 
If I can dig up a receipt I'll let you know.

It's the same clock as used in the mid 60's corvette, so any corvette vendor should have a clock repair kit.  they come in both Quartz and the original movements.  The only difference is that the quartz movement jumps from second to second and the original one moves smoothly.

 Other way around the quartz is smooth and the original jumps from second to second.
 
You might see if the points in the clock need cleaning that is usually the reason they don't work. I usually hook up my battery charger (small one) and then check if the points trigger the rewind if not clean them off a little and see if that doesn't do the job. Worth a try. GL
