Makers of a watch’s heart
Time is our constant companion. But even the most extravagant watch needs a reliable movement to keep it in regular motion. And Switzerland has earned itself an enviable reputation as a manufacturer of the finest watch movements.
Ronda has been committed to time for decades now. And our company today is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of precision electronic watch movements of innovative design. Our quartz movements tick away in a vast range of watches from the elegant to the sporty, in the models of numerous fashion brands and in the exclusive timepieces produced for the luxury market sector.
Swiss roots - international horizons
Ronda is an established Swiss-based company that has its roots in the Basel region. The company was founded by William Mosset in the area’s Waldenburg Valley in 1946, and is now headquartered in Lausen.
Our company has expanded steadily over the years, and the Ronda Group today includes five subsidiary operations: two production facilities in Southern Switzerland, one in the Jura region of Western Switzerland, a manufacturing facility in Thailand and a sales office in Hong Kong. All in all, Ronda employs about 1800 personnel in its Swiss and Asian operations.
Independent and dynamic
As a family-owned company that is now in second-generation hands, Ronda attaches great value to maintaining its full independence. It’s a credential that is a key benefit for our customers, enabling us to define and develop our own business strategy and respond correspondingly closely to their wishes, needs and concerns. The fact that we have earned ourselves such a prestigious position within the watch manufacturing sector is a further tribute to our strong market focus.
Ronda employs the latest manufacturing technologies, and is widely seen as a leading innovator in its international field. Our core competence, though, is in manufacturing and assembling microtechnology components. And our skilled combination here of manual craftsmanship and process automation provides a sound foundation for delivering the kind of productivity and consistent quality that have made Ronda synonymous with Swiss precision expertise.
At Ronda we make a point of cultivating close personal contacts with all our business partners. This in turn enables us to purposefully develop innovative new products. Our smart and skilled personnel work creatively together to produce the items and components that our clients need to succeed in their various markets. The efficient ISO 9001 quality control system ensures that every Ronda watch movement meets the most rigorous standards in design and quality terms.
With today’s constantly changing markets, prompt deliveries of supplies are crucial to any company’s success. Ronda has long recognized this, and in response has developed and steadily refined its evolutionary logistics system. The system combines our European and Asian operations into a single flexible entity to ensure the shortest reaction times, making us the most reliable of partners in any watch manufacturer’s production planning process.
