New to me birth year watch 7006-8059

Bought a 1973 7006-8059
I bought a 1973 model 7006-8059. I'm super excited to receive it. It was manufactured in November 1973 (when i was born). Anyway, I need to replace the crystal and have one ordered. Is there anything else that would need to be replaced usuall with these? Gaskets etc?

New gaskets would not hurt anything ;)

Other than that, these tend to be pretty durable ... like most vintage mechanical Seikos.

A movement cleaning & lubrication would be good, but likely - other than the casing parts mentioned, nothing else would be needed.
