Pentax Honeywell Spotmatic SPII

I have been trying to find a replacement battery for my Pentax Honeywell Spotmatic SPII. The camera was my mother's wheen she was an art student in the late sixties/ early seventies and I am going to be going to college for photography so I have become somewhat obsessed with older film cameras and I love working with film over digital. I have been searching online for a few hours, looking for what kind of battery I need to put in inorder to make the light meter work. I know the original battery was a mercury one but I cant seem to find a straight answer as to what modern equivilent to use. Please Help!
