Comments about the data

Remarks
1956-1963 (whole family)
pin-lever escapement with ruby pins (Fig.4)
detached manual wind
ratchet on dial side, crown mechanism with rocker bar
Base movement and automatic module (Fig.5) are pillar designs, where almost all lubrication spots are freely accessible. Thus both can be maintained only partially disassembled.
Modifications, especially varying rotor shapes, can't help with dating, due to the short manufacturing periode and missing records.
differences not known between 57/21, 57/21a
Even by simultaneous disassembling both, no differences were noticed, which not also exist between several samples of the 51/21.
