Do you typically replace the gasket in your own past experience modding watch crystals?
You might get lucky with crystaltimes.net. Alex (their operations guy) is also very responsive on email if you send him a note. My son has asked him all kinds of questions in the past, and he's usually quite prompt. The models you're looking at are fairly high on the list of watches people do this to, so there should be plenty of gaskets and crystal options on the web. You might also want to get the bill of material for those watches to see the exact Seiko part number, then head over to eBay to see if you can buy Seiko's specific gasket.Where is a good place to check gasket sizes?
I need to buy one for my Seiko Turtle and a Mako II.
Yeah, with the models I've messed with, the case back gasket rarely needs a swap. Not sure why that is, but maybe they just sit in their groove better than the crystal gasket. Or maybe it's because for the case back, it's not the gasket that's holding the case back on, like it is with a crystal gasket. I've never had problems with the case back gasket either.Never messed with crystal gaskets but I opened the back of a seiko 007 dozens of times whilst trying to regulate it and never replaced the gasket but I was careful to clean and lubricate it and didn’t have any problems.
Still have it and it I still haven’t got it regulated right!
