Apart from the form factor, any Lithium cell I am aware of would do -
they are all 3V, and the buffer current is extremely small and well
within the margin of even a wrist watch cell. Given that the cell was
soldered in, I'd strongly suggest replacing it with one of these lithium
power blocks used for computers - these have about six inches of cable
attached, and hence it could be put in some safe place off the PCB,
where it poses no danger should it ever corrode and leak.
