Sub inserts?

Hi all-
Just wondering if there's a way to cross reference inserts that might fit my 1987 168000 Submariner. I've been on the hunt for a little while for an age appropriate replacement but they're hard to find and cost prohibitive for my purposes (and wallet). I have however seen inserts for later watches are a little more plentiful.

I'm assuming that inserts from some later models might fit this watch but haven't been able to locate any kind of cross reference material to confirm that.

Thanks in advance for any insight or advice.

I believe that the 16610 insert will fit.
