1884 gingerbread clock swings evenly for about a minute in good time then I hear a click up inside and pendulum stops dead
There is a very good chance that the pendulum regulator wheel and rocker assembly is out of adjustment or has a bent tooth or finger that is jamming the movement.
The adjustment of this is extremely sensitive and so a slight misalignment will at some point show up when the causes of the misalignment rotate to align once again, which is why it is a periodic fault.
Despite it being a very sensitive area and in need of a light hand to remedy, for anyone experienced in working on this kind of movement, it would be a simple and speedy repair.
Unless you have experience of working with such movements, I would recommend leaving it alone and seeking help from a professional, because of the risk of making it worse rather than better, so making it more difficult to repair in the long run.
I have a 1840 Mauthe wall clock that had that exact fault, and once it was properly aligned, it has kept excellent time for the last seven years so be gentle with it.

TFX Watch batery? 36a106 cmg
Tip & How-To about Watches
Changing Watch Batteries
Lots of posters ask "what is the battery in my (name of watch)" with a view to changing it yourself. This is a bad idea for many reasons. You don't have the tools or knowledge to remove a rotary screw on back, or the gasket sealant for a waterproof watch. Some fashion watches have 4 traditional screw and need professional grade jeweler screwdrivers. Also, there are about 20 batteries commonly used in watches, in various sizes and internal technology, Lithium Ion, Silver Oxide and Manganese Alkaline. If you buy them, you generally have to buy 10!
Don't sweat the details. Just take the watch to your local jeweler. They have all the batteries at hand and the tools to remove the back. It is done whilst you wait for $8 to $15!

My versa wristband broke. It is eight months old. How do I get a replacement
Other than contacting Versa directly and asking them where the nearest stockist of a replacement bracelet is, to your location, then the only other option is to use a specialist sourcer, such as myself.
I have a contact in Guangzhou, China who can get pretty much anything.
If you would like me to source one for you, then please EMAIL ME firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll get some prices & images together for you
