Good review and great pics.

Here is some info on Valanvron from Chinese Watch Industry Wiki. Looks like they start with a Seagullebaushe and assemble and finish it in Switzerland so it can legally be called "Swiss made".

ETA 2824-2 - ETA's basic automatic winding, twenty-five (25) jewel movement which traces its roots back to the 1950's.
ยป Near-exact copies of the 2824-2 are produced by Sellita (the SW200) in Switzerland and by Hangzhou (the 6300), Sea-Gull (the ST21) and Shanghai Watch Factory (designation unknown) in China. The Valanvron watch company in Switzerland assemble and finish ST21 ebauches as legally 'Swiss Made' movements, designated Valanvron 24.
