No. First off no watchmaker has a "parts account" with Seiko. Seiko
only sells watchbands to watchmakers. All other Seiko parts are sold
through supply houses.
Seiko parts are not hard to find most times. The very old Seikos will have parts issues and some of the current styles of Japan only Seikos will not have parts available.
Case tubes for all Seiko watches are not available at all.
Finding parts for Seiko watches requires the use of the watches model number which is on the case back of the watch. The number listed in the title is not a model number. The SKA098 is a retailers number so the retailers can reorder the watch. It does not cross reference for parts.
There are many watchmakers that don't want to service Seiko watches so they can and do make up all kinds of stories as to why it is impossible to repair them and so on.
Actually Seiko is much better about parts supply than any of the Swiss watch companies.
Hope this helps.

Testimonial: "Hello Ken, Many thanks for your reply and the information contained therein. I agree Seiko watches are trouble free. Kind regards, Mark."
I feel sure that Seiko will have a copy of the instructions in their archive, so if you contact them they should be able to send you a copy.
(Either that or advise you which watch has similar instructions).
