    Sheffield (or similar) Instalite jump hour - anyone got one?

    I picked up this curiosity on eBay. I've seen them with several brand names. It's got a hand wind 17 jewel movement and also a cool light feature activated by the pusher on the top. It needs a single battery for the light feature, and before I go to a watch shop and get them to try a few in, I thought I would test the knowledge of the forum and see if anyone has one and could tell me which battery to buy and help me save a few quid!

    Just a thought Mike, why not post pics (including battery hole) on the main wruw?
    Lots of footfall there including g-shock & quartz geeks, who may recognise the size required
    Fabulous watch by the way - I love the padlock look :-)
    It's the final countdown! PM me before they're all gone!

    Yeah thought it might be a 357 but this only has one battery. Hang on, I forgot to post the picture of the back!

    Thanks, it's having a real Marmite effect. I think it's cool.
