New Course on mechanics
The Swiss family company Ronda AG produces mechanical movements again. The decision has already fallen at the end of 2011, after Ronda had developed in various technologies and was able to build on industrial foundations.
The goal was the development of a 11.5-linigen caliber, which corresponds to a diameter of 25.6 millimeters, which is suitable for the volume market. After more than four years of intensive work, the automatic caliber R150 was introduced to the Baselworld 2016. Ronda’s own construction with three pointers and date shows a very high production depth and is based on industrial production technologies.
The movement is 4.4 millimeters high and has an aisle reserve of 40 hours. The launch of the movement of the line “Mecano” is planned for the end of 2016/early 2017. Production is to be increased to large quantities within the next few years. Mari
