Ronda Watch Brief History

1946
Foundation of RONDA Ltd. Lausen by Mr. William Mosset. Production of components for a wide variety of watch movements.


1952
Start of production of ebauches or "movement blanks" under license for BRAC.

1961
Production of the first RONDA ebauches after a long struggle with the Swiss authorities, who were protecting the so-called "watchmaking statute". Thus RONDA was the first company apart from the big existing watch groups to receive these production-rights.

1972
New markets sprang up in Asia, leading to the creation of a subsidiary in Hong Kong as well as increasing market-activities in the USA.

1974
In the early 1970s, the advent of quartz technology sent shockwaves through the watchmaking industry. The new quartz movements were far more accurate than the traditional mechanical watches. With its dynamic spirit, RONDA was quick to develop its first quartz movement.

1980
During the 1980s, quartz technology conquered the global watchmaking industry. The worldwide market rose from about 50 million to 400 million in 1990. The wristwatch had become a fashion article.
Owing to unrelenting pressure on prices, production was heavily automated and partially shifted towards Asia.

1985
Death of William Mosset.

1990
The successful worldwide market penetration prompted RONDA to increase its production capacity in Asia. A new subsidiary was established in Thailand in 1990 for the assembly of watch movements as well as manufacturing electronic components.

1996
RONDA celebrated its 50th anniversary with a workforce of about 1000 people on three continents. RONDA receives the ISO 9001 certification, as the first European movement manufacturer.

1999
Inauguration of the new factory in Thailand, with a surface of approximately 8000 sqm.

2003
RONDA launches the first quartz chronograph with BIG DATE.

2004
Expansion of the production site in Lausen/Switzerland.

2005
Launch of RONDA mastertech 6000 - Big Date movements 11½'''

2006
Launch of RONDA mastertech 7000 - Big Date Day Retrograde movements 15'''

2008
New production plant in Stabio/ Switzerland for the assembly of Swiss Made movements and Swiss Made watches on a contract basis.

2009
Third factory in Thailand.

2010
Launch of RONDA mastertech 8000 - Big Date Chronograph & Retrograde movements 15'''

Good post! The vintage watch market is vast and also a very detailed and sometimes complex area to invest in. No matter if you are a new to the pre owned watch market and are buying a piece or two for pleasure or if you are a seasoned watch collector with years of experience and a substantial collection. Thanks.
