Products in general

6000 series renamed RONDA normtech

Be it in print or online, every customer is looking for information that is clear, well organized and geared to its target group. To meet these needs even better, we will be reducing the size of our next product catalogue, while still retaining all the key information.

What should you know now?
As part of this comprehensive revision, we are incorporating our “mastertech 6000” series of products into our normtech range. As a result, our Ronda website now features all our 6000-series movements under Normtech 700 & 6000 in the Quartz Essentials section.

Technicals & product development

Optimized seconds-hand steps

We have enhanced our second wheel, intermediate wheel and rotor components to bring even greater precision to each seconds-hand steps.

The improvements relate to the 7¾''' to 11½''' size RONDA normtech 700 series, though not all these products will be modified at the same time. The enhanced components are already being used in the following calibers:
–   7¾'''   772, 773, 774, 775
–   8¾'''   782, 783, 784, 785, 788
– 10½'''   702, 703, 704, 705, 708
– 11½'''   712, 713, 714, 715 & 715 Lithium.

The multifunctionals will follow from January 2015:
– 10½'''   706.1, 706.3 and 706.B

What is important here in terms of watch repairs?
In both the enhanced and the previous version of these movements, the second wheel, intermediate wheel and rotor form a single unit. So when replacing individual components here, please note that the two different versions should not be combined. A production code will be marked on the main plate indicating the version used.

You will find full information in the corresponding Technical Instructions which will be continually revised.
