All our sapphire crystals are unmarked. Some of our inhouse metal parts are marked with the CT logo to clearly identify us as the manufacturer.
Will my watch still be water resistant if I change the crystal?
Absolutely 100% our sapphire crystals will not change the oem water resistant rating of your watch. During product development, manufacture and testing this aspect is paramount.
What are drilled lugs? Do I need them?
The spring bar holes are drilled right through the lugs. That allows easy strap/bracelet change without the risk of scratching your case or end link. Currently @ 90% of buyers choose drilled lugs. It’s a matter of personal choice and with so many of the oem Seiko models having drilled lugs nowadays drilled lugs are popular.
Do your cases come with Springbars and gaskets?
Yes all our cases come with Springbars, Fitted Crystal gasket and Case Back gasket.
Crown stem too long what can I do?
You will need to carefully cut it to the correct length to suit your crown, case and movement. Do not rush this operation taking care to not cut it too short.
If I purchase a case and crystal can you fit the crystal for me?
Yes we can and we will do it for FREE! However you will need to purchase a chapter ring at the same time as this sits directly under the crystal. Simply add a note to your order and we will fit the crystal.
The SKX013 CT706 case however is the exception to this rule and we can fit the crystal without the need for you to purchase a chapter ring as the chapter ring is loaded from the back side.
Do I need a new crown if I change my movement?
SKX007 and variants - If you are upgrading to a NH35/36 movement or similar you will need a new crown that is threaded as the oem crown has a stem permanently fixed into the crown head with a stem that is not suitable. Johnny Watch has a number of suitable crowns.
Will your dials fit my watch/project?
All our dials come with 2 sets of feet to suit crown at 3 and crown at 4 simply cut off the 2 feet you do not require.
All the dials we sell are 28.5mm a diameter used extensively throughout the Seiko range of models – A few of the suitable movements are 7S26 7S36 6R15 4R15 4R35 NE15 NH25 NH26 NH35/A NH36/A
Just a few examples of Seiko models that our dials will fit are – SKX007 and all 0020 case variants, SNK803, SNK805, SNK807, SNK809, SKX013, SKX015, SKX017, SNZF15/17/19, SNZG13/15, SNZH55, the new SRPD aka 5KX range

Will your bezels fit my watch?
The bezel specification contains the list of models the bezel will fit. If your model is not on the list it will not fit.
I want to use a sloped bezel insert on my SKX007 what crystal is suitable?
You require CTO37CIS or CT094
Do I need a new crystal gasket with my crystal purchase?
This is very much personal choice we find the majority of buyers will purchase a new gasket. In most instances using the old gasket is ok to use if not carelessly damaged but to be totally 100% safe we would always recommend to purchase a gasket with your crystal.
I am confused which SKX007 case back do I choose?
If you are using a stock movement that has the black oem movement spacer (e.g. 7S26 4R36 ) you require case backs CT200 or CT239A.
If you are using a NH35/36 movement which has the grey thinner movement holder you require case backs CT231 or CT239B
Lume in the hands – what do you use?
We use a mix of C3 with @5% C1 this we feel is a good balance giving a look similar to the oem lumibrite
Will the lume in my ceramic lumed insert, lumed crown or lumed steel insert degrade over time?
Lumed external parts on the watch ( bezel Insert, Crown ) will naturally degrade over time this is normal. The internal lumed parts ( dial and hands ) will also degrade over time but not to such a degree as the external exposed lumed parts that can be subject to liquids. Phosphates and Sulphates used in detergents and soaps as well as Chlorine will enhance this degradation process. Please try to avoid these harmful chemicals whenever possible.
