Rolex 1600 VS 1601:

The 1600 was upgraded to have 19 or 20 jewels in the caliber 1601. The diameter and height are the same. The winding pinion, clutch wheel, and the stem are interchangeable. Currently known as the 1602 (slightly thicker with a faster beat rate) and found in manual wind Cellini models.

Beautiful shots. I want a vintage Rolex like this to add to my list. Rolex used the 1600 for a long time and still does.
