    Help please: which battery for this vintage Swiss quartz..

    There is no indication on the case or the movement.. The watch is NOS so would be great to get fired up..

    Give me the diameter and thickness of the battery holder and I can suggest a battery.

    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    The main way to find out would be to determine the movement specifications. However, I can't identify it. None of the movements in Ranfft give a match.....

    Any markings on the movement? A clearer picture might help.

    Looks like a Ronda Harley 373 or 375 (date wheel) and they use the 395 battery cell. I love these little guys for they have a clonking sound when you push in the crown. First time I came across this movement I thought the movement was loose inside as it felt like it moved when you pushed in the crown.

    Here is a 375 I'm working on as we speak.

    Gauge the diameter of the receptacle and check up on the chart below, then see what thicknesses are available for that diameter.
    (Be aware all these non-lithium batteries are all the same voltage of course, so size is the only thing you need to match)

    The low price of batteries nowadays you could buy a number of different thickness batteries in your diameter range and suck it and see
