The battery type differs, depending on the movement; what's the model number (on the caseback)?

Take your relic watch to a jeweler who will open it, identify the battery, and perhaps sell and install a replacement.

The above link includes an international contact. That direct contact should provide at minimum whether they can supply a band and/or what would be necessary.

However, you may be able to use a Nato band on the watch as an alternative.

Lastly, you might take it to a watch repair shop, have them exactly measure the band (the broken one) and see what they might supply.

Unlikely to be a CR2032. They are HUGE, size of a quarter. I wrote this Tip.

Changing Watch Batteries
Lots of posters ask "what is the battery in my (name of watch)" with a view to changing it yourself. This is a bad idea for many reasons. You don't have the tools or knowledge to remove a rotary screw on back, or the gasket sealant for a waterproof watch. Some fashion watches have 4 traditional screw and need professional grade jeweler screwdrivers. Also, there are about 20 batteries commonly used in watches, in various sizes and internal technology, Lithium Ion, Silver Oxide and Manganese Alkaline. If you buy them, you generally have to buy 10!

Don't sweat the details. Just take the watch to your local jeweler. They have all the batteries at hand and the tools to remove the back. It is done whilst you wait for $8 to $15!

You don't unless you are a watchmaker with the tools and know-how.

If it is a new movement you require, email
Me and I will discuss options with you.
Would you need it fitting.
If so, prices would start from as little as £18 for a Minota Quartz right up to £175 for a brand new ETA automatic 2836/2 movement. This would include fitting.

Links on segmented metal bands are held together with split pins. The pins can be delicate and easily damaged if the proper tool is not used and you may mar up your band. Harbor Freight Tools sells an inexpensive watch pin tool, if you want ability to DIY. Many jewelers and jewelry repair shops will fix you up in a few min for minimal or no cost in my experience
