Fits for the basic Seiko divers: 6105 / 6309 / 7002 / 7s26
Hands:
all hands on all Seiko Auto's are a fit ...

Dials:
99% of Seiko dials are 28.5mm in size, if you cut the pins off the back of the dial most dials will fit each other but you will need to use glue or tape to fix the dial to the movement ring

6309 dial have a small tab at 2:00 to keep an eye out for ...

6105 will fit 6309 but not the other way since the 6105 is date window only
6309 7002 & 7s26/7s36 do not fit each other ...
6R15 dials will fit 7s26 movements but like the 6106 the 6r15 is date only window
And so a custom no date or no day/date 7s26 dial will fit a 6r15

Glass:
6105 glass will fit 6309 & 7002
6309 & 7002 glass will not fit 6105 because the 6105 needs a domed glass for hands to clear ..
6105/6309/7002 does not fit 7s26 divers ...

Chapter rings:
I think 6105 and 6309 chapter rings fit but all others are different ...

Bezel inserts:
6105 6309 7002 are fine the 7s26's might need a little trimming we're talking mm's in size to fit the other but basicaly like hands all fit ...

Crowns and stems:
to keep it simple they don't fit each other with out a little modding ..

if you see anything wrong or have a few more tips feel free to ad to the post ..

PS:
the 7002-7039 diver is a transitional diver from the 150m to 200m rating it is a true odd ball and parts fit the new 7s26 divers not back to the older divers ...

ONLY THE 7002 is actually a 4;00 crown I think ..
most others are 3:45ish ...

all others at 3:00 are true 3:00
