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.
Detailed comparison:
Thx Rob. Pretty much what I read about them. The owner of Unity was not 100% sure , but I was just wondering how much work they do to the movements. It seems like they assemble, decorate and finish.Either way, like I said, the movement is keeping excellent time and the second hand has a very smooth sweep.
