    Benrus Electric Series 3091 help

    Hey all,
    Another one of my "why did I buy this" moments, but I bought this Benrus Electric Series 3091 watches. I replaced the crystal already, case is a little tattered, but I ran into the problem with this battery. Any idea on what a replacement is for this? I'm sure I can't get this brass cased one anywhere, so I was hoping someone would know. Thanks as always in advance, and if anyone has some good info on this watch, I'd appreciate that too, can't seem to find much on it.
    Regards,
    George

    Do you have a pic of the movement?

    I suspect that it is a LIP R148

    It should take a modern 301/386 or equivalent

    The brass battery is a mercury battery

    Oh and if you put the battery in and it does not work, try giving the non crown side a good slap with your palm and it should start.

    Yes it was made by LIP (French company) and should take the 301/386 battery.

    Make sure the contact for the battery is clean and that when you install the battery the + side is up

    One of the better resources I've found:

    LIP - Electric Watches

    Careful, the early electric/electronics are addictive.
