    Fixed Bezel Plastic Gasket

    I have a Seiko SNZ320 case with a fixed bezel with a broken plastic or nylon gasket. I've searched everywhere, but no luck!
    Are these gaskets available anywhere?

    Do you still have the original gasket? If so, I recommend:

    1. Get a good caliper.
    2. Measure three things: a) inner diameter, b) outer diameter, c) thickness (which should also equal b - a)
    3. Go over to esslinger.com or any other place generic gaskets are sold, and order one that fits the dimensions in #2.

    Alternatively, look up the parts list (if you can find it), get the individual part number from the Seiko bill of material or whatever, and try to order the exact OEM gasket. It won't be cheap that way, but at least it removes any doubt about measuring on your own. Trust me - measuring gaskets is a PITA, but at least the plastic ones keep their circular form easier than the flat rubber or o-ring styles, which have a more malleable shape, so if you bump them or they're not perfectly circular, your measurement could be off.
