Founded in 1946, the Ronda Group is a leading manufacturer of Swiss precision-watch movements. Ronda movements are found in timepieces from well-known brands such as Invicta, Swiss Military, Corvette and others. Ronda's 5040D calibre movement is a Swiss-made quartz movement that is designed for analogue watches with calendar and chronograph functions. Setting a watch with a Ronda 5040D movement can be done in just seconds.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Pull the watch crown out to the third position when the second hand points to "60." The watch crown is the button found on the outside of the watch that is used to set the time or date as well as wind the watch.

  2. 2

    Rotate the crown clockwise or counterclockwise until the hour and minute hands indicate the desired time.

  3. 3

    Push the watch crown back into the first position.

  4. 4

    Pull the watch crown out to the second position to set the date. For best results, set the date during the watch's specified date-changing phase, between 9pm and noon.

  5. 5

    Rotate the crown until the date indicator shows the next day's date. Note that this is done because the watch automatically advances the date at midnight, but does not do so the first day it is set.

  6. 6

    Return the crown to the first position to complete the watch-movement-setting process.

Tips and warnings

  • Contact Ronda directly if your watch has trouble keeping time after being set; the battery may need to be replaced.
  • To find the third position in the crown, pull the crown gently outward until the watch stops. To place the crown in second position, gently pull the crown outward; the watch will continue running.
  • Do not set the date on your watch outside of the specified times; otherwise the automatic date adjustment won't be accurate.
