Question about Watches
The Lionel Collectable Train Watch has 3 batteries in it. Two are for the whistle and one for the watch. All of them are V377 or 377 disk batteries. Gently pop off the back cover as most watches come off the same way. The battery by itself toward the middle is the train timepiece watch battery and is installed with the + side up toward you. The two batteries toward the edge are the whistle batteries, and you have to be very careful in changing them. Thee us a rotating contact that is plastic coated, over the batteries. NOTE: THE BATTERIES ARE NOT BOTH IN THE SAME DIRECTION. ONE IS UP AND ONE IS DOWN. (LOOK VERY CAREFULLY FOR A + AND - SIGN ON RIGHT NEXT TO EACH BATTERY.) For this reason, it is recommended to only change ONE battery at a time, so you will not get them mixed up. Gently spin the contact one direction, and one of the batteries will be clear and come out. Change that battery. Now rotate the contact back to the original position over both batteries, and continue rotating in that direction until the second battery is clear and can be removed. Change that battery. Now you can confirm that you still have one battery up and one down. Rotate the contact back to its original position, centering it on each battery. This contact has a layer of plastic material covering it on top so that it will not contact the watch case. If this plastic coating is damaged, it can damage the watch. If it is damaged, you might put a small piece of tape over the contact, to prevent other damage. NOTE that close to the edge of the watch is a very, very small spring sticking up. Make sure that spring is still vertical, as it is very delicate and can be damaged easily. That spring as well as the metal arm sticking up are part of the speaker circuit and must be in their place when the cover is replaced, as the speaker is in the cover. Now gently replace the cover until it snaps down. You will see the train moving around the dial and you can push the button and hear the whistle. Incorrect changing of these batteries by persons in jewelers departments of stores like Walmart and Target, have damaged more of these watches than you would like to believe. Hope this helps. (By the way, I do not have a brochure for the watch at this time.)

Measure your original watch battery (diameter and height).
Compare with the cross reference list and find exactly what you want.

If you do not have the manual for it, you may need to remove the back cover in order to see th battery type. If removing the back proves too hard, a jeweler may do it for free or minimal charge. I got my battery from a dollar store and is a good name brand.Easy to install yourself.

I have not figured out how to open the casing lid to replace the battery, but the number for the battery you need should be engraved on the lid. Double check your own lid, but mine says that the battery is an SR621SW. I'm sure there are different brands that would match this number.
