Watch assembly on customer’s behalf
Ronda resolved at the end of the 1990s to further expand its range of services for customers. The logical step here was to offer watch manufacturers not only quartz movements but also a full watch assembly service from the same supplier. To this end, the Ronda Time Center was established as a further Ronda Group subsidiary in 2002.
The new start-up was located in Mendrisio, Canton Ticino (Southern Switzerland), and initially numbered some 30 employees.
A coveted quality label
Brand-name manufacturers from all over the world can have their watches assembled at the Ronda Time Center. The entire operation is performed using only Swiss movements, enabling the finished products to be marketed with the coveted “Swiss Made” label.
Movement and watch assembly under one roof
When larger premises were required for its “Swiss Made” watch movement manufacturing activities, Ronda decided to house its full-watch assembly work under the same new roof. The Ronda Time Center moved into its new production facility in Stabio (Canton Ticino) in summer 2008. The company currently has a workforce of some 120 personnel.
