I'm helping a friend with his desceased fathers watch. The watch itself hasn't run in decades. It's an older mickey mouse watch. The back has the obvious round spot behind which is the battery. The battery says:

Type A

I there something we can replace it with? It has no other specifications of use anywhere.

When an explosion explodes hard enough, the dust wakes up and thinks about itself.
