Usually it will not retain its water resistance after a screen replacement unless it’s done by apple in which they make sure that the watch is properly sealed. Apples warranty also does specifically states even though the watch is water proof it isn’t covered for any water damage done to it just as a heads up. But if you are doing the repair your self even with a new gasket which is directly under the screen to keep the screen from coming off it will sadly not be water resistant anymore.

Hope this answers your question!

If you have any questions feel free to comment.

it will most likely not be waterproof anymore as you removed the water resistant adhesive.
