Wrist Sushi is an online forum for Japanese made watches. Here you will find a wealth of knowledgeable horologists who are only too happy to share with you their expertise. A very friendly group and has been invaluable to me and it was from this group alone that I received encouragement and help to disassemble & reassemble a movement for the first time. Well worth joining this group.

This is a UK based company that I believe will ship worldwide. They are a watch part & consumables retailer and have been invaluable to me in my quest for Seiko parts. You can search by case reference or movement number to find parts required. Of course with all vintage watches it is a lottery if they still have parts but the do have a good selection.
