Lausen, Switzerland, January 17, 2011 – RONDA is adding two more new products to its “Mastertech” line this summer. Since 2006, the Swiss manufacturer of watch movements has introduced various big date and retrograde models to the market. Particularly the asymmetrical creation of caliber 7004.P has generated lively interest among customers, as its arrangement of functions allows sophisticated dial designs.
The demand for large watches has grown steadily over the last few years. RONDA is therefore launching at the Baselworld 2011 show its “Mastertech 8000” line, offering the watch making industry for the first time XXL chronographs in the overlarge 15”’ (33.80 mm) size. This will give the manufacturers fresh impulses for large timepieces with chronograph functions.
The 8040.B model features a classic design with three eyes at 3, 6, and 9 o’clock, as well as a big 3.6 x 5.5 mm date indicator. The caliber 8040.N, on the other hand, hits the lights not only with its chronograph but also with a retrograde day indicator at 12 o’clock.
