Vintage Seiko 7005-7011 gaskets ?

Question

I'm trying to get my old grandfathers Automatic Seiko up running and I took the movement out of the case today. I figure I will replace the mainspring and I was not able to salvage the o-ring gasket on the stem nor the case back gasket. I don't know if they're supposed to be flat and quite hard. Anyway, the just crumbled apart when I tried to remove them and the case back one had to be removed to get the movement out. My question now is where, or rather how, do I source these parts. I've been searching cousins and they have a lot of parts and I also found an old article in this forum that pointed me to Jules Borel site but it was out of stock there. 

Is there some sort of generic gaskets I may use ? What measurements should I use when searching for new ones ? Where may they be found ?

It would seem that one of the trickier obstacles with this hobby is sourcing new parts, especially when one can only afford to tinker with OLD movements.

On the back it says Seiko 7005-7011 but it sure looks a lot like 7005-7010 I've seen around here.

Thanks!

Thank you. This is a cool document. However, it doesn't seem like the gaskets are a part of the movement but the watch "itself". I will print this doc though !

Correct. Just measure and order by size. Cousins UK has by far the largest selection, I would use the occasion to get few tools and other useful stuff at the same time.

    • I got this little beauty  at a swap meet on Sunday.  I changed the battery and still nothing.  I know nothing about quartz. Is there a trick I kneed to know?  Is it worth taking down to be repaired?  Should I look for an ETA movement to put inside?  It does have the gold matching band in good condition.
    • So jdm if you want I can mail you the watch of your dreams.

    • Thank you AndyHull and JerseyMo for responding with really helpful instructions!  You guys rock!  i have to get some rodic to help hold these two little mini-monsters in place. I was trying to use a small bit of sticky-tack but it didn't hold well enough.  I would get the screw into position but it would fall over when the screwdriver touched the screw.   For the 24 movement that still has the broken screw end in it, I will try to get that out after I get the lever and screw installed in my working 24.  And yes, I will install the crown/stem AFTER I have the lever and screw in place on the plate. Again, thanks for your help- i really appreciate it!!!  Will let you know when I get things back together.
