History: The 1600 series is a family of very traditional manual wind movement reserved exclusively for Cellini models. The 1602 is the third iteration of the group. It measures 20.8 mm in diameter and 2.55 millimeters thick. It operates at 21,600 bph, has 20 jewels, and a 46 hour power reserve. The balance is freesprung with a flat hairspring. The movement is a derivative of the 1600 caliber which Rolex designed in 1964. The 1602 modifications took place in 1993. It is hard to compare the 1602 to the 3135 but it is a sturdy well built movement which has been proven through 44 years of use.

Rolex SA (/ˈroʊlɛks/) is a Swiss luxury watchmaker. The company and its subsidiary Montres Tudor SA design, manufacture, distribute and service wristwatches sold under the Rolex and Tudor brands. Founded by Hans Wilsdorf and Alfred Davis in London, England in 1905 as Wilsdorf and Davis, Rolex moved its base of operations to Geneva, Switzerland in 1919. Forbes ranked Rolex 64th on its 2016 list of the world's most powerful global brands.[Rolex is the largest single high end watch brand. The company is owned by the Hans Wilsdorf Foundation, a private family trust.

Alfred Davis and his brother-in-law Hans Wilsdorf founded Wilsdorf and Davis, the company that would eventually become Rolex SA, in London, England in 1905. Wilsdorf and Davis' main commercial activity at the time involved importing Hermann Aegler's Swiss movements to England and placing them in high-quality watch cases made by Dennison and others. These early wristwatches were sold to jewellers, who then put their own names on the dial. The earliest watches from Wilsdorf and Davis were usually hallmarked "W&D" inside the caseback.
