It says in the description that you need replacement adhesive when reassembling, but what adhesive do you mean? Adhesive strips, adhesive glue? In all my searching nobody seems to have a good answer. The best thing I could find was b-7000 glue on amazon, but some people say it is water proof some say it Isn’t waterproof, so I’m not sure what to do. Any advice/feedback would be much appreciated!

Hi JJB, it’s very difficult to seal your watch waterproof after a repair but I can recommend this glue. I hope your repair works! Feel free to share your experience with us when you have finished it.
