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.
