Hi ,

the movement in question is a - Ronda GMT Cal.515.24H

i was looking for information on this particular movement, but other than some very limited technical information- there is not much personal review\information about this movement or a watch housing this movement.

is that a reliable movement?

i know it's not a high-end movement (probably), but how good is it ?

the GMT feature works as it should ?


i wonder if anyone here had experience with a watch with this movement or similar installed.

any input is highly appreciated.

many thanks!

It's not too bad, midrange quality quartz. It's far superior to what ETA has in the same functionality department, the 805.161.

It can be found in a Phoibos Eagle Ray GMT 41mm dive watch. It's also only 10.5 mm thick but rated at 300M and on $200 USD. Wonder how it can be so inexpensive?

I got one in a Svalbard Einzeiger CG11, and it's fine. Especially in a watch for less than $100...

Some have complained about the accuracy when setting the GMT hand or dial, but have not found that to be the case in admittedly limited use.

I can attest to that: I have Svalbard Liberte (AA36) which uses GMT hand of the movement to drive single-hand of this decimal watch. And when the time needs to be adjusted it takes 2 or 3 attempts to get it right, as sometimes hand seems to be stuck and doesn't move after the crown is back into "0" position (if it makes sense).
