Case back thickness

Hi guys

On an earlier thread the water resistance rating on GMT versus Submariner came to question, so I did some research on my own on the differences in the tickness of the case back.
I will have to add to this list as the watches come into my shop for repair, but this is what I got so far from the watches I'm currently working on. Please keep in mind, the mm gauge I'm using is old, and might not be accurate up to 0.02mm.

GMT Master 16750 - 0.72mm
Submariner 16610 - 1.51mm (more than twice the tickness of the old GMT)
Lady's DJ (older) 69174 - 0.50mm
Lady's DJ (newer) 79174 - 0.49mm
Gent's DJ (older) 16013 - 0.75mm
Gent's DJ (newer) 16233 - 0.81mm
