The battery strap looks to be among the missiing.  Here is a picture of a 218 strap setup. We have a 218 Repair manual in the Library. Click the Information Tab above & locate the manual title as it appears below

Not to be funny....in an Accutron 218 watch! LOL Purchase a 218 for parts on eBay cheap. Or check the Accutron sites on line.

   I've seen those battery straps for sale on the Bay pretty cheap but you might have to look for a while. Does the watch have sentimental value ? I'd say, with that face, that you  wouldn't want to invest much in it.
