    Default The Seiko (Tuna & Shrouded Divers) Watch Crystal Guide:

    Hello everyone & welcome to the (Seiko Tuna & Shrouded Divers) watch crystal guide.

    I've put this guide together over the past few years because of the huge following that these Professional Dive watches have had since there introduction in 1975 to present day. Also due to the many questions past & present owners have had, regarding which crystal is needed for a particular watch model in question.


    The following is a complete up to date comprehensive list of (OEM Seiko part numbers) for the various Shrouded & Tuna diver models AFAIK as of January 2013. The latest part numbers are shown for current replacement & interchangeability. Some of the photo's were barrowed from the web for visual reference.



    Watch model = Seiko OEM Crystal

    150m Qtz. H558-500X Arnie = 310W60GA00 Flat hardlex
    150m Qtz. H601-548X Arnie = 310P13HN02 Flat hardlex



    200m Qtz. 7C43-6020/SBBN009 = 280WA6FA01 Flat hardlex
    200m Kin. 5M23-6A19/SHF012xx = 280P06HN03 Flat hardlex



    300m Qtz. 7549-7010 = 325W26HB0A Domed hardlex
    300m Qtz. SBBN007/7C46-7010 = 325W16GA00/325W26HB0A Domed hardlex
    300m Qtz. ScubaPro/1999 L.E. 7C46 = 325W26HB0A Domed hardlex
    300m Qtz. MM SBBN015/017 = 325W26HB0A Domed hardlex
    300m Qtz. MM SBBN023 L.E. G-13 = 325W26HBOA Domed hardlex



    600m Auto 6159-701X = 335W08GA00 Flat hardlex
    600m Qtz. Golden TiN. 7549-700X = 335W10GA00 Flat hardlex
    600m Auto SBDX005 L.E. 8L35-0030 = 335W10SB0A Flat hardlex/Sap/AR



    Additionally, there are 2 models of Quartz 7C46 Professional divers that are considered part of the Tuna family. They are called the "Ashtray" 600m Divers & their information is as follows:

    600m Quartz SS 7C46-6009 = 315W24FA01 Domed hardlex
    600m Quartz Ti 7C46-6010 = 315W24FA01 Domed hardlex



    1000m Qtz. Golden TiN. 7C46-7008 = 335W10FA01 Flat hardlex
    1000m Qtz. Golden TiN. 7C46-7009 = 335W10FA01 Flat hardlex
    1000m Qtz. Golden TiN. (Reissue) 7C46-OABO = 335W10SBOA Flat hardlex/Sap/AR
    1000m Qtz. Darth SBBN011/S23619J1 Reissue/7C46-0AA0 = 335W10SB0A Flat hardlex/Sap/AR
    1000m Qtz. Darth SBBN00E RobertMarx L.E. 7C46 = 335W10SB0A Flat hardlex/Sap/AR
    1000m Qtz. Darth SBBN013 MM 7C46 = 335W10SB0A Flat hardlex/Sap/AR

    1000m Qtz. SBBN021 L.E. Blue Ocean = 335W10SBOA Flat Hardlex/Sap/AR





    With regard to Original OEM part numbers

    Some original OEM numbers have been discontinued & replaced with current up to date replacement numbers.
    For example, the 300m Tuna can crystal number #325W16GA00 has been replaced with OEM part #325W26HB0A.
    These crystals are basically the same crystal, other than being maybe a mm thicker or so in height. This may also hold true of other older OEM crystal part numbers.

    Diameter Sizes Please Note

    The first 3 digits in the crystal part-code is the width size of the crystal in millimeters at its base. These are the main digits to be concerned with when sizing a crystal. You may use other compatible crystal numbers in the chart, as long as the 1st. 3 digits are the same. The other following digits relate to crystal thickness or height, coating or finish and edge bevel, and are of secondary importance compared to the first 3 digits which are it's size in Millimeters.

    Ex: A 325 digit-code means the crystal is 32.5mm, and 335 digit-code means the crystal is 33.5mm.


    Thank you all for reading the post & I hope this guide was helpful to you, and may you always be found in WISdom!




    Cheers,

    Hi Stephen,
    I've been away from the forums for a few months & just saw your question.

    I'm pretty sure your needed OEM watch crystal part number is: 295P05LN03
    Your watch crystal is 29.5mm width
    You can check with Seiko parts @Coserve, or run a check on eBay, or check with Otto Frei watch parts, and you should be able to source your needed crystal.

    Goodluck,
    Jim
