  1. Rubber gasket for Seiko Arctura Jorg Hysek 5M42-0E39

    Hi all 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...
  2. Seiko 5 Sport gaskets

    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...

    Folks: 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...

    Are bezel and case-back gaskets different or are they interchangeable? Specifically I'm asking about gaskets for a 7s26-0040 case (SKX031/033).

    Hi everyone, 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 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...
  9. Need gasket for Slava

    Russian watches
    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...

    Hello, 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.

    Dive watches
    Hi all, 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...

  14. Where to buy case back screws and gasket for Speedmaster Pro X-33?

    Hello, 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...

    Casio G-Shock
    How many of you switch out the o-rings on the buttons to ensure water resistance? I know that it is a good idea to replace the case back gasket on occasion, but how about those button o-rings?
  17. Restoring an old DW5600C (please help)!

    Casio G-Shock
    Hey, Awhile back when I was in South America I bought an old DW5600C (901) from an old watch shop. The watch has been working great until about two weeks ago. I think some water got inside and fried the module. Now the module seems to have a mind of it's own. So the other day I picked up a...

    Casio G-Shock
    Hey guys, I recently bought a DW- 6900. I like to keep my watches for a long time. I was wondering, other than changing the battery, do any of you ever do any maintenance on your g-shocks? Like do you ever replace the gaskets or anything? Thank you in advance, and happy holiday season to everyone!!
