ST19 is an automatic or manual wind column wheel chronograph movement produced by Sea-Gull.

History

When the Chinese government first commissioned a chronograph watch for pilots in the People's Liberation Army Air Force in 1961, the development contract was awarded to the Tianjin Sea-Gull Watch Company, and was code-named Project 304. Sea-Gull based their first chronograph movement, the ST3, on the Swiss-made Venus 175 movement. Whereas the Swiss movement had 17 jewels, the Chinese movement has been developed further as the ST19 movement, with 21,600 bph, automatic versions and 19, 21, 22 or even 23 jewels.
