Default Seiko gastet descriptions

Hi
I'm new here so here goes. I know that Seiko have codes which if you can decipher explain how to order compatibles from Cousins but how do these codes work..

For example I need a FE338BAD4 I know its flat 3.38mm in circumference but what about the rest? Is there a deciphering code book for idiots like myself?

That's a 33.8mm caseback gasket I think?
The F on the new coding I believe denotes a square shape gasket.

The second letter denote the width, which in this case E = 0.5 to 0.59 mm.

The next three digits relate to the size. In this case 33.8mm. If it was 0038, it would be 0.38mm.


The B is the colour code, and I imagine stands for Black.

The A is the shape, which denotes a circular gasket.

The last two bits of info denote the material and serial number. Both of which are not as important to know.

I hope that helps.

The info is here and I hope my interpretation is correct.



Ah beaten by melt.

In my experience any parts for a citizen are a challenge. I normally use a vernier caliper to measure the case. I use that as a starting point. I have a large selection of gaskets (hundreds of sizes) and can normally find one that fits fairly quickly.
