I suggest using a direct electric (1.5 VDC high-Z) or indirect magnetic (high gain) pickup on the coil to get the +/- pulse per second. Compare this time with your local frequency standard and over several days you should get accuracy better than 10 ms per day (1e-7). Here's an example of a raw phase plot:
