Default Help! Citizen Skyhawks case back gasket!!

Desperately in need of a case back seal! Contacted citizen and they want 140 to fit and pressure test my watch which I think is ridiculous! They're refusing to supply my local repair shop with the gasket so on the off chance does anyone have or know where I could get one?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Kind regards.
Blake.

Is there a serial number on your case back that resembles something like 3xx.xxxx ?

E.g Cousinsuk list Citizen case back gasket thus:

Case Back Gasket, Citizen 393.00494
Code: CIT39300494

I had the same problem. Does your gasket look like a piece of white plastic ? If you need this type of gasket, they're hard to find and hard to set. I had one and tried to install it and end with destroying it. I put the gasket around the case back, used a press and could'nt seal the case. It just would'nt get in.

There maybe someone here who knows how to correctly set this kind of gasket. Without this information, you'll probably end in ruining the gasket like I did.

Anyone knows how to set it ?

My case number is S041341, the gasket number is 393-7720. If you have the same case, let me know, I should be able to find where I bought this gasket.

Yes I have the same case and need a gasket, Citizen told me they don't do gaskets but I could send it in for a service for 115, the age and condition of the watch doesn't make this viable. It's now sat in a drawer. Cousins can't supply as I've tried, so a bit stumped now
