    Are G-Shock gaskets generic/interchangeable between models?

    Apologies if this has been covered before My question is if when you have the gasket replaced at a mall kiosk or somewhere else, and they pull out a gasket saying this one will work for your G, will it work? I've gotten word that G gaskets are specific to a series or model, and they are all different, however, perhaps they wanted to sell me on through them (at a premium). Would be great if I can get an answer on this, thanks all!

    They are specific to certain model yes, depends on the shape of the case and caseback. Some are completly round, some are round with one flat side etc.

    'Similar' is never the 'same' ... if you want absolute certainty.

    To see a number of variations, take a boo at Pac Parts & the picture &/or part number for the gaskets for a few different models.

    Huh, ok..yeah, this would be for a DW5600E model. Guess I'll have to order gaskets for that specific model. Thanks for the info, much appreciated!

    Well if they pulled out a gasket for 5600 from their drawer then of course it'll work ;)
    Have you ask further to the guy behind the table if it's the right part or they're just guessing?
