Default Seiko S800 Scuba Crystal Replacement?

Hi everyone!

I'm thinking of trying my first crystal replacement, on my s800 Scuba 200m and I could use some good advice from you kind folks.
- Is this watch a good one to try this procedure on?
- Anyone know where I can find a diagram and parts list?
- Anyone know which crystal I should use?
- Can I press out and press in this crystal like in this SKX video:
or is this model somehow more complicated?

One member mentioned before that it uses the same crystal gasket as the SBCM025, so it's likely at least a 2mm think crystal. Hope that helps.

Thanks in advance!

Why do you want to replace it?

Hopefully this should lead to parts catalogue.

It's an s800-0019 AO. It's quite scratched up, there's no way I'm going to polish it. I took it to a local watchmaker and he said I'd have to go d someone with a diamond polishing wheel, but it would be easier to just replace it.

Depending on who did it refinishing it would be a good option too.
