Response to 1601 and 16013 were made along side of each other?

... that it's simply a matter of using up whatever is left of the 'old' cases, movements, dials etc., while starting to produce the very first 'new' ones. From a business standpoint, this seems like a logical way to make for a seamless transition. Also, I would consider the overlap in serial numbers that you mention to be quite small (a few weeks at the most?). So I find this a more logical explanation than Rolex applying the serial numbers at random. happy.gif
