Feh. Just take a Dremel to the casing of the old one, pray you don't hit the
Li battery and then replace the battery and put some PVC tape over it.
Simple, yet effective. I've seen a website about doing exactly this.
Or you could just dunk it in MEK to dissolve the potting compound Dalsemi
used, then remove the plastic cover and replace the battery. Again, replace
the cover and tape it down.
IIRC, Dalsemi used a CR2032 battery in the 1287.
