Its been a while since any movement has occurred (pardon the pun). The contact at STP was on holiday until the 20th of this month and to date he has not got back to me with regards to purchasing one off STP1-11 to trial.
As a result a movement decision must be made and as the 2824-2 cannot be justified from a cost point of view currently, the Miyota 9015 is more than an adequate alternative. It is a similar specification to both the STP1-11 and ETA 2824-2. More information about the movement can be found on the link below.
