So i changed to my 6309-7040 today and went for a shower and after i was blown away :-\ the watch had taken on water and the fine mist on the inside of the crystal was very small but still it was there. to my surprice the gasket in the crown was gone :-[ the watch had been to my local watch shop for a service about 3 months ago so im not going back there again.... Im now fed up with the local watch service here so this one im doing myself..

But where can a get a gasket for the crown ? Do any of you guys have one that i can buy ? I would hate to order one of them Philli gaskets that don't fit proper or hold up.

I made the test just now with the crown from my Quarts 6309 and this worked fine with no water any where in the case ;)

Hope to get a little help here

I replaced my crown gaskets with a generic 4mm OD by 1mm thickness O-rings.
Bought them at an O-ring shop which sells mostly to garages.
gone through pressure tests (10bar) and snorkeling with no problems.

Galpo this sounds like i have to go to the local garage part market to hear if they have them in the same size... would be fun to hear if the had some in the same size as casebacks or bezel gaskets...

Thanks for the help guys..... :)

anyone have measurements for the bezel and caseback gaskets in mm ? I may have a good source for gaskets from a suppllier to heavy duty hydraulic machines :)

Thanks

If you are in the states, jules borel carries them all.
so do a few other places here.

If you are in the UK cousins carries them.

they are the same size , as the SKX gaskets for caseback and bezel
