Hi all!
This is my first post on any watch forum.
I am an amateur watch collector/ repairer.
I am trying to resurrect a Citizen 5502 diver for a friend.
The glass gasket had failed, and when he took it to a shop, they said Citizen don't support parts for it anymore and tried to sell him a new watch.
I didn't think it should be that big of a deal to get replacement gaskets, but my lack of knowledge of where to look for them has left me empty handed so far in my attempts.
This thread is to see if anyone knows where/ how/ who/ can supply suitable replacement gaskets for a 150m quartz diver.
I have lots of other "project watches also" so any clues as to how go about successfully returning them to service would be greatly appreciated.
I'd love to be able to help my mate out with his treasured 5502 if possible.
Any comments or ideas?
Thanks

Hi and thanks for the prompt reply.
I didn't realize that I could just get the case and glass dimensions and order a gasket with the correct profile.
I will try that and see how it works out.
Cheers
