Yep, specially if itís threaded in there super tight. I donít know if I read on an old post that Seiko puts something similar from the factory.
I used a little bit of silicone grease for some rust protection when reinstalling, canít hurt anything.

Reynaldo My screws were dirtier than in the pictures, think it was probably used in water previously and just that area of the screws couldnít be rinsed out, maybe. I need to remember to remove the shrouds on the tunas I have from time to time the keep things clean.

Ps:
Thanks for the set of screws John!

Tuna screws question

Finally got around to purchasing a clone of the 5700 caseback opener, which in turn made it easy for me to replace the crystal on my sbbn017 and a few other things while at it; battery, shroud, caseback and crystal gaskets. The crystal had a few scratches and the shroud just very few scuffs on the beadlasted finish and dings on the edges, nothing too bad just that I like this watch a lot and wanted to restore the newness look again. Iíll have to baby it now.

Anyway my question regarding the shroud screws is if itís common practice to use any thread lock to prevent rusting and pitting.

Interestingly, only the screws were like on mine, the threaded case holes and rest of surfaces are in perfect condition. I donít take a lot of pictures of everything but hereís few pictures:

^ energizer battery!? I guess itís been replaced before.


The crystal easily pushes out.
New parts except the caseback gasket gasket not showing, but used one of the 6309 replacements from the group buy. Same one.
Listo.
Done!
This was fun, just the remedy for me lately.
