Europa Star WorldWatchWeb, 10 July 2013

This year will see the market launch of Ronda xtratech as a new product line. The quartz movement presented at Baselworld is known as Z60. It is the first-ever Ronda 13¼‘‘‘ size calibre with chronograph function.

Aside from the center stop second and the 30-minute counter, the popular 3-6-9 look boasts a day indicator, a date and a small second. The Z60 features a diameter of 30.00 mm and a movement height of 4.60 mm.

With the xtratech the name says it all: a Swiss Made movement offering everything a chronograph needs. Not a feature more and not a feature less. In fact, the ideal product for watches in the fashion range, where demand runs high for useful functions at attractive prices.

With the new diameter of 30.00 mm, Ronda now has on offer to the watchmaker a range of four chronograph sizes : Startech 3500 series with 10½ x 11½‘‘‘ and Startech 5000 series with 12½‘‘‘. And, last but not least, there are the shortly to be marketed xtratech Z60 with 13¼‘‘‘ and the Mastertech Serie 8000 series with 15‘‘‘.

Looks like Ronda is stepping up their game with the expanded size selections. Will be interesting to see how these movements fare over the long haul.

I have a Ronda in my Zodiac ZMX-1, and I have to say this, 6 years battery lifespam and amazing accuracy... hard to find a fault on the movement

Good point eddiea. If I could find it in a watch that had the style I like I would give it a try. The battery life you mention is a great selling point to me as well. As of yet I don't think I have own something with a Ronda movement in it.
