Sorry, I understand now it's a 2/3A, much bigger.

The original LX1634 (LX16/34) is a Li-SO2, 850mAh, 2.8V nominal, 3V open
circuit. Current SAFT model is "G 32/3".

Here is the datasheet


I saw the code "G 32/3.4" should point to the version with PCB pins, but I
wasn't able to find the original datasheet and any EU source.

If you can accept to change the chemistry to a Li-MnO2, you can use the Varta
06237501301 from the supplier I suggested. This is a 2/3AA, same height,
thinner, with radial leads like a capacitor, so you should find the way to fit

Another idea could be use a holder and put a (very easy to find everywhere)

Best regards,
