    I have got a lady's De Ville watch which needs a battery replacement. It is a Renata 751 2v but I can't track one down, anyone got an idea where I can source one from?

    Unfortunately this cell is discontinued...

    What movement is in the watch? I believe the inly choice is to swap the movement for one where a battery can be acquired.

    Cheers, Al

    Replacement is a 1459B, which uses a 335 cell.

    No idea where you are located, but the simple answer is send the watch to Omega.

    Alternately if you have a watchmaker with an Omega parts account, he could get one and swap it.

    I can likely get you one if all else fails...depends on how you want to approach the work.

    Cheers, Al

    Ok guess I need to see how much it would cost against the value of the watch. Thanks for your help
