My Pelagos is the second higher end watch that Iv owned. Seamaster SMPC being the other. My question is in regards to the “finger tight” rule of thumb. Every single watch Iv owned before followed the finger tight rule very easily but somehow the Pelagos has me questioning it. Apparently it does...
This was a while ago,
I was trying to regulate my Heimdallr skx, and when i was closing it, the Gasket was bigger than before 😶
Is there a way to do this right? Or i need to find a new Gasket?
Thanks in advance
I'm new here... I posted this onto the end of another thread related to the above watch, but realized my question is more "watchmaking" related, so I'm reposing here.

I have a Citizen AVION Eco-Drive - AW1361-10H watch that...
Hello everyone! Hope everyone is staying healthy.
I typically open the backs of my watches to admire the movement and typically do not have issues putting everything together -- this is the exception.
After opening the back of my Oris 65 42mm, the gasket seems to be VERY stretched out, to the...
I would like to replace the gaskets on my prebond midsize, planning to replace the back case gasket, also the other seals apart from the crystal.
I have found some case back replacement gasket but finding difficult to find the gaskets of the crown and maybe case tube? How many...
I've bought this Ikepod Seaslug GMT about a month ago in perfect NOS condition. It works great, and looked flawless. Wore it pretty much every day since then.
Just today, I looked at it and noticed that a thick dark outline has suddenly formed on its earlier perfect (most probably...
I'm looking for some help finding a part number.
I recently bought a 5M42-0E39 and I have changed the capacitor, but the rubber gasket had perished and it fell apart when I took off the front of the watch. I think the gasket is essential to avoid moisture getting in.
I've been scouring...
Dear (probably) fellow Seiko Owners,
I'm wondering if anyone can give me info about the new 5 Sports line's (mine is the SRPD63) gaskets.
How many gaskets does the crown have? I assume it has a gasket in the crown, hence the crown is not closing completely on the case (not totally flush and not...
A months-old Pantor Nautilus (love it by the way), with which I am very careful...suddenly a piece of black gasket was visiible when trying to screw down the crown after time setting. (I set weekly to the atomic signal, so I'm unscrewing and screwing down the crown once a week...
I have a Casio DW-280  dive watch which I've used for eaons, and which is great except the battery cover o-ring (gasket) has swollen and is now too large.
Can anyone please tell me what dimensions (radial cross-section diameter, and Inside Diameter) I need for this watch?
i'm planning on calibrating my seiko spirit scv003, about 9 years old, myself and already did some research on how to do it, etc. I would do it by a professional, but im on a tight budget. I'll probably have to change the casback gasket as well, but i don't have any precision tools...
Hey, good folk of the Affordables Forum,
Does anybody know if replacement rubber gaskets are available for the 1990s Timex Indiglo Ironman Triathlon watches? I found mine in a box where it had languished for probably a decade or more with a dead battery, and one CR2016 later it works perfectly...
I have 7 G-2000 that are going to be coming up on battery changes in the next year or so. I only have 3 gaskets left!! Anyone have a source, part number, or just the o-ring size for these? I know they are getting up there in the vintage and hard to find parts for ages, but I have plenty of...
Hi all, it's been a while since I have been around here. Watches have been set aside for a while and not really into getting any new ones, especially since I got quiet a few that I haven't even touched yet.
A few years ago, I bought some Slave quartz watches (USSRtime #0182). They had gaskets...
Anyone know where I can locate a crown gasket for a Casio 394 MD-502?
Bought the watch around 1994, it was discontinued in '97.
Does anyone do custom gaskets for old watches?
Here's a picture of the watch if helpful:
I'm new to the group. Hello to all!
I'm working on a wristwatch with a sapphire crystal front window, water resistant up to 100m.
I am now designing the gasket (a standard I-shaped gasket).
I want to find out the best material for it, but no one was able to tell me if it is "better" to...
I just picked up a 6309-7049 the other day with unknown service history and I am currently sourcing replacement gaskets for the caseback, crystal, and crown. I realize that the silicone helps the gaskets waterproofing properties, but just how important is it?
I also own a modern skx...
Hello forum members
I'm becoming crazy trying to find a crystal gasket and the entire bezel (or at least the insert) for my Seiko Samurai Stainless Steel.
I'm planning to buy the sapphire crystal from Yobokies but Harold doesn't have the crystal gasket either my watchmaker, I don't know where...
I have recently acquired a used X-33 Gen 2 (after having sold my Gen 1 many years ago). I think the changes that Omega has made on the Gen 2 should have been on the Gen 1 to start with, but that's just my personal preference.
In any case, since the seller didn't know when it was the...
