Swiss Made Vs Swiss Parts:

According to the Ronda website, there are two versions of this caliber 4120.B quartz movement: a Swiss parts version with 3 jewels and nickel plated finish, and a Swiss Made 7 jewel version with gold plated finish (above).

Battery Info:

The 4120.B take a battery cell number 395. The expected battery life for a fresh cell is about 50 months. This will depend on how often you use the alarm.

If you buy a new battery here, your purchase supports the site.

This movement also has a power saving mechanism with pulled out stem (essentially hacking seconds), which lowers the rate of consumption by approximately 70%. In other words, if you are not going to wear your watch for an extended period of time and want to preserve the battery, you can pull the crown out. Just keep two things in mind: make sure your watch is in a safe place with the crown pulled out. You don’t want it to catch on something and break the stem. Also, don’t keep your watch in storage for too long, otherwise you run the risk of the battery leaking acid into the movement.

When changing the battery, be careful when you unscrew the screw… the wishbone style battery strap becomes a cantilever and will fling the screw across the room if you don’t put something over it. One trick is to hold the strap down with your finger (only when wearing gloves or finger cots) or Rodico, then carefully remove the screw with tweezers.

Alarm:

You may notice that there are two springs sticking out of this caliber.

The springs send current to the Piezo buzzer style alarm indicator on the caseback.

Ronda 4120b Caseback Piezo Buzzer

What is a Piezo buzzer?

“Piezo buzzers are simple devices that can generate basic beeps and tones. They work by using a piezo crystal, a special material that changes shape when voltage is applied to it. If the crystal pushes against a diaphragm, like a tiny speaker cone, it can generate a pressure wave which the human ear picks up as sound.” –Source

Replacement Prices:

Ronda states that this is a repairable metal watch movement, however, if you need to replace it the prices online range from $48.95 (Swiss parts) to $66.95 (Swiss made) at the time of this post.

I have a Tag Hauer Formula One 2-hand, 2-subdials, one is running seconds and the other an alarm, and a big date at 6 o’clock. The Ronda 4210.B movement Tag Heuer utilizes is a workhorse while the watch still remains dressy.

Tag Heuer Formula 1 WAZ111A uses the same movement.
