There are three correct silver oxide batteries available for the Accutron 214.
They are #387S, #394 and Accucell-1 batteries.
 Several years ago, the #387S and #394' battery's were combined into a single battery with a new part number although they still carry the same 387S designation. Look for the 394/380 batteries at most watch sales and repair shops,

AccuCell-1 Battery - 1.3v for the 214

The 1.3v AccuCell-1 battery is actually a standard 395 cell fitted with a diode to drop the voltage. The battery has to be small enough to make room for the diode and as a result they have a 15% shorter life than a 387S or 394 cell. Some 214's which have been adjusted to run on 1.5 volts will not run properly with the reduced voltage. These batteries are not returnable.

you either installed the correctly assembly battery upside-down, or the battery has been pressed into the plastic spacer up-side-down.
