The Ronda caliber 5040.D is a Swiss made quartz chronograph watch movement found in many luxury and microbrand watches.

Different Finishes, Jewel Counts

According to the Ronda website, there are two versions of this movement: a Swiss parts version with 6 jewels and nickel plated finish, and a 13 jewel version with gold plated finish.

Power Saving Feature

The battery is claimed to last about 54 months in normal conditions, but if you are not going to wear your watch for a while, the 5040.D has a power saving mechanism when the stem is pulled out stem (aka hacking function). Reduction of battery consumption approximately 70%. It is not advisable to leave the chronograph second hand running because it will drain the battery faster and put more wear and tear on the gears.

Resetting the chronograph hand to zero:

If your chronograph hand isn’t lining up after a battery chance, it might need to be reset.

Macro Gallery:

The Ronda 5040.D pictured here was found in this TAG Heuer Formula 1 chronograph watch. The white plastic movement holder on the TAG has screws holding it in, but other watch companies do not always use the screws (Invicta for example).

8/31/20: There are other differences between movement holders, we will post comparison images soon. Check back this week for an update.

I own an Invicta 11706, big watch, good movement. I have no complains about it. I saw it from inside once. It has a gold finish. The problem with the watch is not on the movement, but the way Invicta encapsules it. The dials may fall if the watch is dropped. Probably because it is a heavy thing. Also, it has no month, no week calendar, its just that: hour, chronograph and day calendar. I… Read more »

I am on my second Isobrite chronograph with Ronda 5040.D movement. On both, the minute counter on the chronograph skips 2 minutes for each minute elapsed. Armourlite says this is normal, but it does t seem right. Anyone else have this problem?

I’m a huge fan of this movement. I have an Invicta SubAqua Sport and this movement is by far the best of the quartz chrono modules I’ve had. One thing the description doesn’t mention is that the 10-hour totalizer at 6pm is also a 1/10 second totalizer until the chrono hits 30 minutes, after which it counts the hours. Fantastic time-keeper as well. I’ve done all sorts of stuff with mine, including activities involving mild… Read more »

I have this movement on my Tag Heuer F1 Chronograph purchased in 2013. I haven’t reset this watch since DST and it is within 30 seconds accurate. I’ve changed batteries once in 7 years. Great movement.

I need a replacement movement spacer ring with the pusher placements shown here, but for the 5030.d … if you have ANY advice on how to get one, short of going to the manufacturer because they have not parts for their Ducati Corse CW0015, I’d appreciate the help

How about this: what watch is shown at the top of this page … the one where the spacer is clearly shown. Anybody know which watch we are seeing?

Mine is a microbrand from a jeweler in Maryland (no longer in business). It has a Ronda 5040.D with 13 Jewels and Gold Plating. It’s been an excellent Chronograph.
