The Ronda caliber 5021.D is a bi-compax style (two horizontal subdials) quartz chronograph watch movement.

In Ronda’s own words (source):

  • Very long battery life
  • Repairable metal watch movement
  • Power saving mechanism with pulled out stem: Reduction of consumption approximately 70%
  • Very easy handling by two pushers

Two Versions of 5021.D:

According to the Ronda website, there are two versions of this movement: a Swiss parts version with 5 jewels and nickel plated finish (silver), and a Swiss made 10 jewels version with gold plated finish.

Resetting the chronograph to 12:00:

Replacement Prices:

At the time of this post, replacement prices for the 5021.D were found online in the range of $35.95 to $64.95 USD. There is a difference in price based on whether you choose the Swiss made or Swiss parts version.

Pros and Cons:

The Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Classic Chronograph uses the swiss-made gold-plated version of this movement. Besides some alignment issues with the watch itself, I’ve not found any faults with this movement, which has kept perfect time in the year I’ve owned it and is indeed fully hackable. Date gear is engaged (i.e. don’t adjust) between 8pm and 2am according to the manual.
