These clocks are mechanical clocks with electric 
winding of the spring. It's usually this 
mechanism (or the spring) that breaks if they do 
not work. It is possible to repair them (I've 
done it) but if you can't do it yourself it may 
be difficult to find someone who is willing to 
try. There is a +/- adjustment on them but I 
don't think you can expect much greater accuracy 
then about a minute a week or so at best, 
especially after a quarter century or more. It's 
not a modern quartz crystal controlled electronic 
movement. You could always insert a modern 
movement in the old casing. You'll lose the intermittent "tick" however.
