That is not mine. It belongs to member Kmot. That was why I put the link up. I did find this about the battery.
357 battery, the Dynabeat is is the fancy version of the regular Timex electric (http://i.viglink.com/?key=da024f1203a58cb489c0eccf297ce290&insertId=5e026a7c73478593&type=H&exp=60%3ACI1C55A%3A16&libId=jqoj7ewr0100ykg8000DAbiva5dpp&loc=https%3A%2F%2Fforums.watchuseek.com%2Ff11%2Felectric-timex-dynabeat-2760570.html&v=1&iid=5e026a7c73478593&out=https%3A%2F%2Frover.ebay.com%2Frover%2F1%2F711-53200-19255-0%2F1%3Ftoolid%3D10029%26campid%3DCAMPAIGNID%26customid%3DCUSTOMID%26catId%3D281%26type%3D2%26ext%3D323635487570%26item%3D323635487570&ref=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com%2F&title=Electric%20Timex%20%22Dynabeat%22&txt=%3Cspan%3ETimex%20%3C%2Fspan%3E%3Cspan%3Eelectric%3C%2Fspan%3E)

Timex model 84, calibre 870/871 uses a type "A" battery ucar303,SR44SW
Timex model 85, Calibre 880/881 same battery, its the same as the model
84 except with calendar added.

I've got a running 1979 electric that's marked for a type A battery, and
a 357 works.


yeah that's an SR44W, a high drain version of the SR44SW, other than
that, both batteries are the same physical size.


the Seiko 3703B uses a SR44W(357) battery, I would think the current
draw is similar to the Dynabeat

Like RW posted KMOT is the electric vintage king around here. He has posted many from that era and is the man to seek knowledge first hand from about these types. Nice pick-up.

This may help with Timex Mickey Electric which needs a battery. Will contact KMOT.
