Chinese Seagull ST19/ Swiss Venus 175 23 jewels manual-wind movement - cleaned, serviced & checked by our skilled technician

Please do not mistake the ST19 to be a below par movement. The Seagull ST19 is the Venus 175 calibre produced by Seagull using Venus tooling machinery bought over in the 1960s when Venus was raising funds to develop other movements. Parts between modern day Seagull ST19 & vintage Venus 175 movements are hence interchangeable.
