The old gasket is removed


We install a new custom made gasket for the crown.

Beautiful 6105.....no new crystal? I think I'll send my exact one in too for evaluation....but angling for a new crystal as well. Seiko US who inspected mine says crystal discontinued....I think I can still find one. Maybe the "Seikologist" is up for the task. Check back and see....
