Take your relic watch to a jeweler who will open it, identify the battery, and perhaps sell and install a replacement.

The second hand should start automatically if the battery was replaced correctly.

I know it's been a while since you posted this question, but I just had to do this with mine after it was lost in a drawer for a few years, and I had no luck googling so I had to figure it out for myself.

First, you have to remove the band, but you only need to do this on one end, not both. I did this by twisting the watch body around while holding the cloth/leather portion of the band still, letting the elastic part twist around with the watch body. Then, just use a fingernail to pull on the ridges on one end of one of the pins that are holding the band on; both ends are spring-loaded, so it doesn't matter which. Twist the watch body back around, and you'll now be able to flip it over to expose the back.

Now, take a thin, strong blade (I used a butterknife) and pry off the back plate. There's a tab on the upper right edge of the back plate to make this much easier. Since it probably came off in the process, place the rubber sealant ring back around the edge of the backplate.

Once you have the back plate off, there's a thin metal piece covering the battery that's held on with one screw. Remove that with an eyeglass screwdriver or any other similarly-sized Phillips-head screwdriver. There's just a small tab holding the metal piece in place on the other side, so just flip the metal piece up a bit and pull it out. You can now take the battery (a CR2016 3-volt watch battery) right out.

But wait, what's this? Beneath that battery, separated by a small plastic insert, is another, smaller one, a 377/376 1.55-volt watch battery. The 377/376 powers the analog movement, while the CR2016 powers all the digital stuff and the backlight.

Replace both batteries, making sure to place the plastic insert back on top of the 377/376 before putting the CR2016 back in, and follow the steps in reverse to put the watch back together. You may have some difficulty getting the back plate back on, but I just pressed one side in and held it while I tapped the other side down with my fist.

The above link includes an international contact. That direct contact should provide at minimum whether they can supply a band and/or what would be necessary.

However, you may be able to use a Nato band on the watch as an alternative. www.clockworksynergy.com

Lastly, you might take it to a watch repair shop, have them exactly measure the band (the broken one) and see what they might supply.

Hi, Dan, I have 2 Dunhill ighters that work but they leak butane. Making them unfit for use. I would like to have them repaired/rebuilt. I believe they are 1960-70's vintage so, the lack of parts will definately be an issue here. Please advise. Thanks Glenn ghelfne1@nycap.rr.com

I would go to the manufacturer's website and check for an instruction manual.

Other than contacting Versa directly and asking them where the nearest stockist of a replacement bracelet is, to your location, then the only other option is to use a specialist sourcer, such as myself.
I have a contact in Guangzhou, China who can get pretty much anything.
If you would like me to source one for you, then please EMAIL ME watchsauce@gmail.com and I’ll get some prices & images together for you

If it is a new movement you require, email
Me watchsauce@gmail.com and I will discuss options with you.
Would you need it fitting.
If so, prices would start from as little as £18 for a Minota Quartz right up to £175 for a brand new ETA automatic 2836/2 movement. This would include fitting.
I am based in the UK and have over 40 years experience
